AP 225 Switching off

  • 1.  AP 225 Switching off

    Posted 17 days ago

    New to this so ...
    Have 3 AP 225
    I think i have blown them up as they will go to boot when switched on Ethernet and PWR leds lit
    PWR led will go stable but the radios never activate
    then the AP switches off and the only way to recover is to disconnect the POE and start again
    Then the same thing happens
    The POE injectors are 56volt and not 48v
    Could that have killed all 3 AP ?
    They do the same on the 12v socket on the rear of the AP
    They all did work for a while but were quite warm to the touch
    guess the Voltage regulator going nuts with the 56V ??

    Happy to be told i am a twit

    perhaps the APs are controller based APs which needs a controller. 

    at the back of it does the label say AP-225 or is it IAP-225?

    also you can connected a console cable to see the messages as it boots up.

    I suggest connect get a console cable and connect it to the console port as watch the logs as it boots up.

    Additionally you might be better off to do a factory reset as well.

    Hey,

    First of all is this a controller based or IAP based setup?

    Like the previous two replies.

    Check the console output.
    Remove the power, connect your console cable.

    Then connect power back.

    When it's booting press enter to be in the apboot.

    If you are on DHCP enabled network, typ "dhcp".
    Then you can follow if the AP gets an IP.

    If the IP is ok and you can ping the controller/gateway, or your other AP's.
    Then you could try with typing "boot" (it goes further in the booting up the AP).

    If all this fails, you could try to type "purgeenv" in the apboot.

    This will remove all info on the AP, and made it factory default.

    Just a reminder that the official end of all support for IAP 225 RW was on January 31, 2023.

    It's expected/normal that these APs get warm (or hot) on the backside. The black metal backside of the AP is a cooling body and is designed to get warm.

    If the AP does the same with PoE and 12V socket, seeing the output of the console as ariyap suggests would indeed help. Make sure that the APs will get an IP address (DHCP server present in the 'native VLAN' for the AP on your switch).
