After powering up my AIR-AP350, all three lights - Ethernet Activity, Association Status and Radio Activity show solid orange lights. I cannot ping the unit and attempting a serial connection has proved fruitless.
Edit: After leaving the unit overnight, the lights are now (top to bottom) red, green and orange, all solid. I am still unable to establish a serial connection.
I fully expect the unit is ready for the big wireless cloud in the sky. Can anyone advise as to whether this problem truly is terminal or can it be fixed?
If your access point has a firmware failure, you must reload the complete access point image file using the Web browser interface or the CLI. You can use the browser interface if the access point firmware is still fully operational and you want to upgrade the firmware image. However, you must use the CLI on the serial console port when the access point has a corrupt firmware image.
Thanks for the reply. After undocking my laptop from its base station I can make a serial connection to the device (why didn't I try that earlier?)
I'm getting a couple of errors at boot,
*** Bad CRC in File FLASH :FE0A0000
Initialization: Improper Motherboard Config
I don't seem to be able to follow the instructions in the links posted above. The Access Point is not running an IOS image, which leaves me a little stuck as to where to go next. My options when using the serial connection seem to be somewhat limited. I've read about converting to IOS, which I don't mind doing but it makes mention of CAC and this seems to require an IP connection to the device. Since I can't establish any sort of connection to the device's IP address, this isn't possible.
