3600 Series AP's b/g/n Radio Not Coming UP

We installed 10 Cisco 3600i AP's, into one of our new buildings.  The AP's are connected to a 2960S PoE switch.  The 10 ports are configured for auto power inline.  The ports show 15.4 watts.  For 8 of the AP's, Radio 0 802.11 b/g/n admin status shows down, operating status shows down, clean air admin and clean air status show down.  Regulatory domain shows as supported.  For Radio 1 802.11 a/n, shows all up.  From admin to operating status.  When I log into the AP, I see that Radio 0 interface is administratively down, whereas Radio 1 is not.  Radio 1 shows up/up.  When I bring Radio 0 up, it shows up/up, but admin status still shows as down. Two of the ten AP's show both radios as up/up with admin and operating status as up.  I've researched the issue, and have done everything from turning off CDP on the AP, to turning off CDP on the port that the AP's are plugged into.  Nothing works.  I do think that if I tried a power adapter, on the AP, then the AP will function, but I do not have a power adapter to test that theory with.  I think the issue is with PoE.  Not sure why two of the ten work, and the other eight don't. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Are these 3600 autonomous or controller-based?

They are controller based.

Re: 3600 Series AP's b/g/n Radio Not Coming UP

i think the issue is with POE.

When deployed using a PoE specification, the power drawn from the power sourcing equipment will be higher by some amount dependent on the length of the interconnecting cable. This additional power may be as high as 2.45W, bringing the total system power draw (access point + cabling) to 15.4W with PoE 802.3af as an example.

Post sh inline power output from swicth.

adding to Stephan...

On the main page, click the "Details" link under All APs.  Choose the AP and make sure under Status choose "Enable".

in the AP radio configuraton, go in and toggle the disable/enalbe.  See if that snaps the radio operational

I appreciate everyone's replies.  Please find the output from sh power inline:

There are only eight here, out of the ten.  The other two are being relocated.  The AP's on gi1/0/6 and 1/0/7 are functioning correctly.  I have tried toggling off the admin status from disable to enable.  I've also restarted the AP's.  Thanks again!

Hi Dan,

I think power status is ok on switch side.

Console into the any one ap(which is showing down) and boot it up and see if you see anything regarding disabling radio due to power or something else.

Looks like power is not an issue per the last few lines of the boot up process:

Hi Dan,

this is all of ur logs???

please put the full logs...

%CDP_PD-4-POWER_OK: Full Power - NEGOTIATED inline power source—This message indicates the access point is operating at full power and has successfully negotiated for 15.4 W of power from a Cisco switch supporting Cisco Intelligent Power Management.

So i think there is no power problem.

Please alos check:

Go to wireless tab and then click on the AP. There you can enable or disable the ap.

Also go to the wireless tab and click on 802.11a/n or 802.11b//g/n in the left hand side and then find your AP. go all the way to the right side and you will see a triangle. Click that and then configure. This allows you to admin up or down that radio.

Had to cleanse the log a bit......

I had gone into the wireless tab and disabled and re-enabled the AP.  I've also been to the network portion of the wireless tab, and disabled and re-enabled the networks

*Dec 19 14:47:35.939: %CAPWAP-3-ERRORLOG: Discovery response from MWAR 'guest-5508-1'running version 7.0.220.0 is rejected.

so finally we are here.

3602E AP minimum req is to have 7.1.91.0 software on WLC.

So u need to upgarde the image on WLC.

Here is the compatibility Matrix sheet: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/5500/tech_notes/Wireless_Software_Compatibility_Matrix.html

Sandeep, I appreciate the feedback.  However, we have 7.5.102.0 on all 5508 controllers.  Not sure why this would be stating that, unless the software on the WLC needs to be upgraded.  You actually might be onto something!

Paste the output of this command from WLC:

sh sysinfo

That's really weird......

That's one of our guest anchor controllers that's not even in production....not sure why it's trying to attach to it

Hi Dan,

The LAP uses this information to make a controller selection, with use of these precedence rules:

1.If the LAP has previously been configured with a primary, secondary, and/or tertiary controller, the LAP examines the controller sysName field (from the LWAPP discovery responses) in an attempt to find the WLC that is configured as “primary”. If the LAP finds a matching sysName for the primary controller, the LAP sends an LWAPP join request to that WLC. If the LAP cannot find its primary controller or if the LWAPP join fails, the LAP tries to match the secondary controller sysName to the LWAPP discovery responses. If the LAP finds a match, it then sends an LWAPP join to the secondary controller. If the secondary WLC cannot be found or the LWAPP join fails, the LAP repeats the process for its tertiary controller.

2. The LAP looks at the Master Controller flag field in the LWAPP discovery responses from the candidate WLCs if one of these items is true:

No primary, secondary, and/or tertiary controllers have been configured for an AP.

These controllers cannot be found in the candidate list.

The LWAPP joins to those controllers have failed.

If a WLC is configured as a Master Controller, the LAP selects that WLC and send it an LWAPP join request.

3. If the LAP cannot successfully join a WLC on the basis of the criteria in step 1 and step 2, the LAP attempts to join the WLC that has the greatest excess capacity.

Post the "sh sysinfo". 

The only time I've seen 802.11b can't be enabled is when it's on the wrong regulatory domain.

Just as I suspected.  This is the main reason why you won't see 802.11b radio.  You have enabled conflicting regulatory domain.

On WLC go to Wireless > 802

On WLC go to Wireless > 802.11b/g/n > Network and at the top under 802.11b/g Global Parameters you will see.

802.11b/g Network Status

Enabled
