Hi guys,


We've just purchased 4 of these WAPs and are now getting them set up - first issue we've run in to is it blinks Red / Yellow / Green. They didn't come with a manual, and the documentation on this site doesn't mention the LED being capable of blinking yellow so this has caused a fair amount of confusion. Can anyone shed some light on this?

If you don't mind, I've got another question - we actually do have a controller, but are unable to connect to the WAP (it does have an IP and we can ping it) with SSH or Telnet, and sticking it's IP address in the browser doesn't work either. What've I missed?

sh sysinfo was not recognised as a command.

The only command relating to time was sh time range

We cannot connect to the AP to type in any commands, but those ones did work on the router. (We confirmed with sh inventory that our WLC module was installed)
