I received an AP 122 at an Aerohive seminar about a year ago and put it aside. I would now like to use it to extend my Comcast wireless range. However, it doesn't seem to be connecting to anything, and when I look at it in HiveManager NG, it gives an error saying that I should try to establish a CAPWAP connection to HiveManager. How acan I do that when it doesn't seem to be communication with the Comcast wireless router?
Do you have it connected with a wire? Do you have link lights on the router? Is the AP getting an IP address?
Does your Comcast router provide PoE (power over ethernet)? If not, you will need to provide power to the AP with a PoE switch or PoE injector.
@BJStahlin - Thank you for responding. The AP came with a PoE Injector, which is connected, and the AP shows an orange light, so it is getting power from the injector. I thought that the AP would automatically connect with the Comcast wirelessly and then connect with HiveManager. However, it doesn't seem to be doing anything, and when I look for the device via my laptop, it doesn't even show up.
Anyone? I would greatly appreciate any assistance. Thanks!
You’ll need to wire it to establish layer three connectivity. Afterward, follow along here...
