The status light conveys operational states for system power, firmware updates, Ethernet and wireless interface activity, and major alarms. The AP330 and AP350 have a rectangular status light bar in the triangular region on the top surface. The illumination colors of this light indicate the following states of activity:

  • Dark: There is no power or the status indicator is disabled.
  • Blue (solid): The device is booting up or there is no backhaul link; (flashing) the device is shutting down.
  • Green: The default router is through the backhaul Ethernet interface, but not all conditions for normal operations (white) have been met.
  • Yellow: The default route is through a backhaul Wi-Fi interface, but not all conditions for normal operations (white) have been met.
  • Purple: A new image is being loaded from HiveManager.
  • Orange: An alarm indicating the firmware or hardware issue has occurred.

From the online documentation...
AP330 and AP350

The AP330 and AP350 platforms are 802.11n wireless access points designed for greater throughput and range. They provide dual concurrent 802.11b/g/n and 802.11a/n radios for 3x3 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) antenna configurations and three spatial streams. When you enable 802.11n high-throughput options such as wide-channel mode (40-MHz channels), A-MPDU and A-MSDU packet aggregation, short guard interval, and MCS23 data rates, they can provide up to a 450-Mbps PHY data rate per radio. The AP330 has internal antennas, and the AP350 has detachable external antennas. They both have dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for link aggregation or link redundancy. Their systems can accept power from either an 802.3af or 802.3at standard POE power injector or from an AC/DC power adapter connected to a 100-240 VAC input power source.

OpenLEDs

The status indicator is in the lower right corner of the AP330 and 350 top cover. It is illuminated by various colors to indicate different states of activity. The meanings of the colors are as follows:

  • Dark: There is no power or the status indicator is disabled.
  • Blue: (solid) The device is booting up or there is no backhaul link; (flashing) the device is shutting down.
  • Green: The default route is through the backhaul Ethernet interface, but not all conditions for normal operations (white) have been met.
  • Yellow: The default route is through a backhaul wifi interface, but not all conditions for normal operations (white) have been met.
  • White: The device is powered on and the firmware is operating normally; that is, a wireless interface in access mode is up, a wired or wireless backhaul link is up, and the AP has a CAPWAP connection to either HiveManager or a management AP.
  • Purple: A new image is being loaded from HiveManager.
  • Orange: An alarm indicating a firmware or hardware issue has occurred.

For locations where the status indicator might be a distraction or attract unwanted attention, you can adjust its brightness level from bright (the default) to soft to dim. You can even turn it off completely. In HiveManager, choose the brightness level that you want from the LED Brightness drop-down list on the Configuration > Management Services > Management Options page. Then reference that set of management options in the Service Settings section of the WLAN policy that you apply to the configured AP330 and AP350 devices.


Best,
