Our wireless access points are located about 100 feet in the air and we would like to know if there is a way to power cycle these POE devices from our PCs, rather than unplugging them from the network switch,

  • frustrated because it requires someone to go up in a forklift 100 feet off the ground and power cycle each of these individually.

Steve,
If the AP is still functioning (although I'm not sure why you would want to cycle power in that case) then you can SSH to them from a wirelessly connected laptop or tablet.

Or, if you are using Aerohive switches and HiveOS 6.1r3, you can use HiveManager to cycle PoE power on individual ports of the switch (effectively cycling power on the attached APs).

Or, instead of going up in a forklift to cycle power at the AP, go into your wiring closet and unplug the ethernet cables supplying PoE power from the third-party switch.

Mike, prior to 6.1r3 we would have to reboot functioning access points because of high cpu.

Steve, we have been able to restart non-responding access points by cycling power on the poe ports of our hp switches. That doesn't help if you are using power injectors though.
