Cisco AP541N completely unresponsive after hard reset
Cannot connect to it neither through ethernet nor wifi. Seems like crashed after pushed reset button for 40 seconds. Also tried Cisco FindIt tool with no success, off course sinds I cannot get a connection with it. No lights other than the pwd button lights up. If I push the reset button again the DIAG light will go red (constant) for a couple of seconds before disappearing and the 2,4ghz wifi light and 5ghz light will flash 1 time before disappearing again. It seems completely unresponsive.
Seems to me that the FW inside just crashed at the reset procedure.
Oh and no more warranty on this thing sinds it is probably least 5 years old.
