Aironet WAP goes down often

Hi

Iam facing an issue with Aironet WAP's. Some of the WAP are going down often. This WAP are powered on with power injectors. As a workaround once after remove and reconnect the patch cable from patch panel to the power injector WAP will come up.

appreciate your help to find the root cause

Thanks in advance

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

When you say it goes down, does that mean you can't associate and pass traffic, or that it powers down?

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

Well as far as associating to the ap, the logs is telling you that connectivity has been lost on the AP to radius. Have you tried moving the ap to another switchport or replacing the patch cord to see if you can isolate the issue. Can you ping from the ap to the switch?

Thanks,

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

I tried changing the uplink and cable to different switch port still it happened ,and please note that we are facing issue with multiple WAP's(thats why hopes should not be cable issue). Iam not able to ping the switch from AP, also switch is not showing from AP sh cdp neighbour. but from AP i can see the switch.

As from the logs if radius server is not reaching and thats the issue then still i would be able reach the WAP through management ip right?

Remove your radius stuff and try again 

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

As scott pointed out this doesnt appear to be an issue with your AP going up and down, rather an issue with the radius server or connection to the radius servers.

Aironet WAP goes down often

Even if this would cannot be a resolution as iam using radius for wireless user authentication still i tried removing radius by "no aaa new-model" still iam not able to reach the wap.

Aironet WAP goes down often

still iam not able to reach the wap.

What is the error message when you try to connect to the WAP?

Do you have ACL on the WAP?

Did you enable remote login using local username/password?

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

Below is the error message iam getting from the WAP while iam trying to connect the client.  iam getting the signal but clients are not associating to the WAP.

There is no access-list configured, and SSH remote login to the device is configured while radius server is unavailable. users are authenticating with radius EAP authentication with Active Directory.

Aironet WAP goes down often

Wait a sec ... This is not right.

The error message you posted above means that the client is failing to associate/authenticate to the WAP because the username/password is incorrect.

Can you please try to use OPEN authentication?

Re: Aironet WAP goes down often

II tried still im not able to ping the AP,also association not working
