Standalone IAP-225 rebooting after any WLAN profile change



I´ve 20 IAP225 configured as Standalone because I can´t have more than 16 SSID distributed by the 20 APs.

But in standalone mode any change in the a WLAN profile cause a reboot on the AP. Is this normal?


And if I try to delete a WLAN SSID profile the AP reboots after I click on the x, and doesn't remove it.


Can anyone help me?

Are you running the latest firmware?  Check the support site.  Also, why do you need that many SSIDs...that will absolutely kill your RF.

Re: Standalone IAP-225 rebooting after any WLAN profile change

The SSIDs are for a Science and Technology park that incubates startups and hosts business innovation centers.


All the startups have a virtual network (VLANs and SSIDs) on a shared network infrastructure.

In practice if I could associate a SSID just to one IAP the maximum SSIDs on a single AP would be 7.

That’s the reason I´ve the IAP on a standalone mode. But I have strange behaviors, like clients complaining that after one or two hours of wifi connectivity they lose it and take some minutes to connect again.


Last hour I was checking arm parameters and channels changings when I found out that the ntp wasn´t configured. When I configure NTP I figure out that I need to reboot the AP to the system time be updated :smileysad:, is this a feature or some bug?


After synchronize the clocks I´ll investigate the logs , as I think that I´ve to change some arm parameters, because of interference or the prefer bands options are not working well.

You might also try v.  There were some client connectivity issues that were resolved between and on the IAP-225.   Not guaranteeing anything though.  Ultimately a TAC case may be needed for debugging
