Blinking Amber

We have an 1131 that is blinking amber.  This ap is brand new out of the box. The controller does not see the ap and the mac is not showing up on the switch which is a 6509.

Any ideas what the blinking amber means?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Blinking Amber

I've encountered this issue before myself, it could mean a couple of things.

1. A blinking amber light usually means the LWAP is still trying to find its "mommy" the WLC but this will cycle through more then just amber. If this is the case make sure its on the proper VLAN.

2. It may also have already registered with the WLC but the radios are off due to low power, if this is the case and you are using power injectors you must enter the mac address of the switch port into the controller under Wireless>Desired AP>Advanced Tab>Power Over Ethernet Settings>Check Power Injector State, Power Injector Selection should be installed, then enter the mac address and apply.

3. If its a fast blinking Amber only light the AP may be bad.

thats all I got.
