At a loss here...



I bought 10 IAP-207s and I have 9 of them working.


When I plug the AP into my Aruba switch in the datacenter it comes up just fine on my virtual controller.


When I plug it in to the network jack in the ceiling out in the field PoE works but it never comes up in the controller and is not pingable.


When I plug a laptop in to the same network jack I get an IP and it works fine.


I have re-terminated the connection.


I am at a loss. Works in the Data center but does not work in the field when patched into the exact same switch port.. I have also tried multiple patch cables.

I am having new wire ran. I suspect interference from power.

Do you have a console cable, so that you can look at the AP's output when it boots up?
