I have Enterasys AP 3605. I approved it and it was working fine last week. This week, the controller says it's down. The AP is plugged in, but blinking red and green. Does anyone know what caused the AP to go down? I checked the log and it said poll timeout, but I have had other APs do that and come back up by releasing them from the backup controller. I tried rebooting it remotely, but that didn't do anything, and it's not active in the backup controller.

Laura, 

Which LEDs are lit? If the access point is facing you with the logo towards you, read the LEDs from 1-4 left to right.

The port the ap was plugged into on your switch, was it configured for 802.1x authentication? You can authenticate the access point if all the configuration parameters are setup on the ap.

I am no sure. Not really familiar with what 802.1x is.  My manger just changed out our old Cisco switches with new Brocades. All the APS were up and running before the swap. Now 3 APs are blinking red and green.

Have you tried moving the ap to a known good port where a working ap currently is?

Check out the following GTAC Knowledge article to find out more on the diagnostic LED combos....  https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/What-do-the-AP3610-LED-colors-represent

This should help.

If you are remote and looking at the leds is difficult, you can ping it or ssh to it to see what it is doing. If you know or can find the ip of the ap, ping it to verify it is up. You can ping /t for abit just in case it is rebooting. If you can ping, then we could ssh to it and do some troubleshooting to see what is wrong, and possibly fix it.
