I have a WLC 5508 (software version 188.8.131.52) and it has 175 APS (mixture of 1131, 1142, 1602, 2602). Recently I've noticed that
about 40 of those APs don't work on the 2.4G Dot11Radio0. sh int dot11 0 shows me:
Dot11Radio0 is up, line protocol is down
Hardware is 802.11N 2.4GHz Radio, address is 1833.9d0c.2180 (bia 1833.9d0c.2180)

I've tried restarting the interface,to no avail, but rebooting the whole AP does bring it back up, but I expect that's a solution to the symptom, not the problem.
Where can I start looking to figure out why some of these radios just won't work?
You could try the Wireless forums
Seriously though you would probably get help more quickly if you moved this post to one of those forums.
Sorry i should have included a link to the right forums. This is the Small Business forum and you need the other Wireless forums as they deal with the WLC etc. -
I'm not sure how you have done it but you have ended up posting to the Portuguese Wireless forums
I don't mean to hassle you, just wanted to be sure you got the help you needed.
HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL WHY IS THIS SO HARD?!
Glad you got there in the end. I really hope you get an answer now as i'll feel a bit stupid if you don't
Paste the output of these commands:
From WLC: sh sysinfo
From AP: sh version
console AP and paste the entire boot process here for one of them AP
Also Check these:
1. Choose Wireless > 802.11a/n or 802.11b/g/n > Network
Select the 802.11a (or 802.11b/g) Network Status check box to enable the 802.11a or 802.11b/g band.
2. Wireless > Access Points > All APs then click on specific AP and make sure admin status is enable.
if you are using Power INjector then
Go to Wireless > Access Points > All AP’s > Click on specific AP then go to Advanced and check the Power Injector state.
Dont forget to rate helpful posts
There are certain related bugs of this version. You may need to check whether you are hitting one these. I would suggest staying in 184.108.40.206 code would be a good idea unless you require new features available in 7.5 or 7.6.
CSCui66891:Marvell-based radio goes down due to stuck multicast packets in driver
AP's radio interface goes down and does not recover on its own without an AP reboot.
With releases 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199, and 188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206, this bug applies to all Marvell-based 802.11n Cisco Aironet access points *except* the 1140, 1040, and certain mesh APs.
With releases 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168, this bug applies to *all* Marvell-based 802.11n Cisco Aironet access points.
None. Reboot the AP.

CSCum14069: AP1600/2600 radio down with 22.214.171.124 release

AP1600/2600 radios never go UP on above topology if the Catalyst switch was running older IOS such as c3750-ipservices-mz.122-25.SEB4
WLC release 220.127.116.11 specific issue.
AP1600/2600 specific issue.
Older Catalyst IOS software (e.g. 12.2(25)SEB4)
non-Cisco 3rd party switch
Enable "Pre-standard 802.3af switches" option on AP from WLC GUI;
WIRELESS => Access Points => All APs => target AP name => Advanced tab => Power Over Ethernet Settings
This option is required to workaround this problem even if you don't have Pre-standard 802.3af switch nor you're using AC adapter/Power Injector.
