Looking at the Radio status tab on a Aironet 1200 ap running latest firmware and it shows the software status as disabled and the hardware status as down, but I have the radio enabled. Any ideas?
You don't mention if your AP is autonomous or Lightweight, but I am assuming by your description it is an autonomous access point, have you completed the configuration on the AP (ex: IP Address, SSID's, Encryption, etc?) I know the latest firmware will not bring the radio on-line until those conditions are met.. Also is you want to use it as a standard AP make sure the Station Role is Root (Root Access Point,Root Access Point Radio Island, Root Access Point Radio shutdown).
Hope this helps... Please rate useful Posts.
