EWS-520-24POE Cant Power AP1131

Hey i have this issu with a Cisco AP1131 it keeps saying:

Due to insufficient inline power. Upgrade inline power source or install power injector.

The 1131 supports both ILP and 802.3af. It is likely that "config ap power pre-standard enable" is configured. I would post here and ask how to set it for 802.3af exclusively.

Re: EWS-520-24POE Cant Power AP1131

Hello, I hope this finds you doing well.

Please upgrade the firmware to 2.0.3.  Here is a link with helpful resources as well as a link to the firmware:

I do not have a reference page to point to, but as I understand it the negotiation of POE for these APs is fixed with the latest firmware.  Please check the version that you are running and or upgrade.

Can you update us when you are done?  Many thanks in advance, kindest regards,
