    Not much info to go on, but 2 suggestions:
    1. Did you check/reverse the fiber polarity? The swapping the fibers on one side.
    2. Are you sure that the AP is 100FX? Both ends need to be the same.

    Correction to #2 above: Are you sure that both ends of the fiber are connecting to 100FX?

    Then maybe the switch needs to be configured in some way. That's about all I can say on it, sorry I can't be more help...
