Aironet SAP1602i - green light is flashing

Hello, I just installed an Aironet SAP1602i stand-alone access point.  The green light is flashing.  But I can ping the AP, I can SSH to it, I can display the status for dot11Radio 0 and it is fine, the radio is on.  Everything looks good.  I performed a google and found this regarding the flashing green light:

Status LED is blinking GREEN, indicating boot loader status sequence;

Please advise on what this means and how can I get it to a solid green light?

Thanks,

Gary

Did you configure your AP and you have users connecting fine?

Thanks,

Scott

Yes, I can figured it just like the other AP I sent to the remote location (that one has a solid green light).  I'm not certain that wireless users are able to connect to the AP with the flashing light....the user walked around the location with a laptop, and noticed the signal strength got lower as he approached the AP in question, but didn't lose the connection.  He may've stayed connected to the 1st AP.  When the user gets to the location today, I'm going to have him try again.  I'll be able to display connections to the AP in question to see if he connects.......but the question still is, why is the green light flashing and why am I able to SSH to it and display statuses and so on and it looks fine?  I assume I'll have to have the user power it off and on again and hope the green light turns solid.

If you can ssh to the AP, then you can see if there are clients associated to the ap or not.

show dot11 associations

Make sure the radios are up

show ip interface brief

You can always try to reboot the AP or post your show run-config.

Thanks,

Scott

I changed the IP address to xx.xx.xx.xx, just in case that would be a security issue for me. 

access_point#show ip interface brief

Well it looks like your 2.4 is up but your 5gh isn't.  You have defined an ssid for dot11radio 0 correct?

Thanks,

Scott

Per your other post:

Dot11Radio0                unassigned      YES NVRAM  up                    up     
Dot11Radio1                unassigned      YES NVRAM  administratively down down

Your better off, maybe resetting that AP and re-configuring it.  I don't know what you have done for configuration, but if you have a template that you use for all you AP's (same model), then factory reset and re-configure.

Thanks,

Scott

Aironet SAP1602i - green light is flashing

Both APs at that location are configured the same, except for the static IP.  I think I'll start with a power off/on and see what happens.  I'm also curious as to what "Status LED is blinking GREEN, indicating boot loader status sequence;" means.  I'm assuming the AP is in a state that leaves it not quite fully functional......but why can I ping it, SSH into it, etc.?

I don't know why... the best way to see what is happeinging is to console into the AP and reboot the AP and view the log.

Thanks,

Scott
