I have a 3805i where all the LED's are flashing constantly.
I can ping the device but cant SSH into it at all.
Is there anything I can look at to get the AP too boot normaly or is the AP faulty.

Hi Cornel,

Have you tried factory resetting it? 

Is this the first time it's been powered up or had it been joined to a controller before?

Hi Cornel,

There is setting on the AP for the LED. If this setting is set to Identify the LED will flash two or four times every second. Check if the Identify option is enabled.

Configuring Operational Mode for One AP:
To configure the AP LED operational mode when configuring an individual wireless AP:
1 From the top menu, click AP > APs.
2 In the AP list, click a wireless AP (not the checkbox).
The AP Configuration page displays with the AP Properties tab exposed.
3 On the AP Properties tab, click Advanced .
4 In the LED field, select an LED operational mode.

If the AP is connected to the controller it could be that ssh disabled.

Please check in GUI > AP > select the AP > AP Properties > Advanced > enable SSH access

If the AP is not connected via a tunnel to the controller ssh is always allowed no matter what is set on the controller.

You;d reset the AP via the reset button to factory default.

HI All 

Thanks for the replies.
The AP was registered to the cloud and the guys didn't tell me.
So after a long while of trouble shooting and finding out it was on the cloud controller I managed to get it sorted and registered to a normal controller.
