I configured my Cisco AP 521 using the web assistant.  however I'm unable to bring the Radio0-802.11G interface up.   I tried to go into the interface configuration an enable the interface, however I'm still seeing the interface as disabled.
Am I missing something when it comes to configure it?  attached is a picture of the interface options and a show run of the AP

    Radio not coming online is generally a power issue. If you are using the DC power adapter. You can try issusing the command:
    no power inline negotiation prestandard source
