440 G2 POE+ not working to Extreme Wireless 3935i


Userlevel 5
Hi Community

It would seem that the Extreme 440-G2 does not detect the power requirements for a Extreme 39xx series AP correcly.

With default config on the switch the Switch provides 802.3af power to the AP.
This results in the AP operating in lower power mode, shutting down some features.

I have opened a case and the recommendation was to run the following LLDP commands on the switch:
configure lldp port 1 advertise vendor-specific dot3 power-via-mdi with-classification
and then enable LLDP on all port.

With this it still does not provide 802.3at power.

I have been playing with the commands try all possible combos but not luck.

If I look at the lldp neighbor info I see the following for the AP:

Anyone else having issues with POE+ on 440's?

The Switch detects the power class incorrectly.

If I compare this to a Extreme B5G switch I see that it detects the power correctly as a Type 4 and not a Type 1:

Port Type Admin Oper Priority Class Power(W) Capability Power Select

If I disable LLDP on the 39xx series (On the wireless controller) AP , the the 440 applies the correct 802.3at power.

So in summary connecting a 39xx to a Extreme B5G series switch, it detects the device as LLDP type 4 device and applies the correct power.
If we connect the same 39xx AP to a Extreme 440 G2 series switch it detects it as a type 1 device and applies 802.3af power.
Only if we disable LLDP on the AP does it apply the correct Power.

So now for the problem is if we manage it AP from the Extreme Cloud.
How do we disable LLDP on the AP's from the Cloud?

Andre,
at first can we check what Power is really on the AP.

I have in test an 3935 on factory defaulted config x440g2-22.2.1.5 seems the AP power with full PoE as needed
