Radio Activity —

The status light provides updates on the operation of the unit itself. The most important feature of the light is the ability to determine if there are any remote devices communicating with it.
■ Blinking: No associations
■ Solid: At least one association
The status light will also flash amber any time the system notes that an error has occurred. This light would prompt you to look into the history logs to form a review of errors that have been reported.
The radio and Ethernet LED indicate activity (TX or RX) over these mediums. Typically the Ethernet will blink much faster than the RF since there will be more traffic on the Ethernet side than the RF side. If the RF LED is blinking much more that the Ethernet, this is an indication there is a lot of radio traffic going on without corresponding Ethernet traffic. This could be from an RF test routine, or from poor communication causing RF retries.
Any RED LED during normal operation indicates a problem, and typically indicates a firmware or hardware failure.
Ethernet Port with or w/o power

The 1200 Access Point has the following ports on the top port panel:
■ Link Light: Lights solid green to indicate that 10BaseT/100BaseT has been configured as the active port.
■ Traffic: Flashes green when an Ethernet packet has been received.
■ Console Port: RJ-45 Console port (rollover cable).
The 1200 Access Point can be powered by its DC power port or by power over Ethernet using an optional power injection module, or using another powered Cisco device (patch panel, switch).
To communicate with the access point via the console port, use a terminal emulation program (such as HyperTerminal) with the following settings:
■ Flow Control Xon/Xoff
