have anyone solved the blinking statuslights on the 1252? -it always blinks status blinks red,green,blue when on 15,4w, 802.3af compliant switch!

Im now running the 1252 lightweight on controller 4402 with firmware, i have administratively shut down the 5ghz radio and rebooted. still blinkning!!

The only solution seems to be to physically remove the 5ghz radio.

i have noticed that when 2.4 & 5ghz is inserted but 5ghz is shutdown it draws 10019mW.

when 5ghz radio i physically removed it draws 7555mW.

This blinking is usually due to not enough power provided to the AP.

If the blinking is bothering you, you may disable it by: led

If you are using firmware 6.X, then this code will upgrade the firmware of the radios to version 2.0.0 which allows both radios to operate but at a lower rate.

The lights blinking red, blue, green at a pace of about 1 per seconds means that the LAP can't find the WLC. If the light is red all the time then it means that it's gone into ROMmon.

If the light is BLUE only that means that a client has successfully associated to it. If it's green it means that it's joined a WLC but no client has associated to it.

Hope this helps.

Have just heard from cisco that this power "bug" will be fixed in coming releases.

I will just have to live with it for some time....
