I have a AP121 which will not connect to hive-manager & when connecting vi putty with a serial connection it shows: Bad Data CRC. I have tried passwords areohive, areohive123, to access the cli but neither work. I have also tried pushing the reset button for 5 seconds as shown.

Is there any other way to install / change the firmware ?

Firmware is available to download from here:

If you have not already done so, you'll need to register for an account. They're available to Aerohive's customers with an active contract.
