AP shutting down..

  • Updated 2 years ago
1. If I have a number of AP's connected in every floor of a building (say 1 ap per floor) and a HiveManager appliance in some other part of the building where only 1 AP is nearby and rest all APs (floorwise) are connected to each other to reach the HiveManager appliance. But one of the AP is disconnected to connectivity or has shut down, will the policy added in that AP be lost for that breakdown period???? and what will happen if the AP which lost connectivity with the HM is connected to another ISP?

2. In the security policy if we have added a group of users to access the network and if a user from that group exceeds his maximum utility of internet will there be any alert to the wireless administrator about that user???

3. The monitoring of each user will be IP based or MAC address based???

4. I have tried connecting my AP to a network through a PoE of a switch but the AP did not go UP, what might be the reason?? The PoE had network connection.

Please help me with these, I have many queries which i willl keep posting in future.

1. the AP remembers the configuration it had
4. IEEE802.3af power ? if yes, bad cabling (check for errors on switch) or broken AP could be the issue

1. I'm not sure quite what you mean by this statement, are your APs connected to your infrastructure via structured cabling or are you using a mesh topology.
2. Again, unsure as I have never tested this in anger. Are you trying to limit user sessions to bandwidth usage restrictions.
3. Either, if you are able to input an IP address or MAC, Hivemanager should be able to produce a report.
4. I would check your power costing on the switch (commands differ based on vendor) - have you tried using external power to ensure device itself is not at fault?
