We have a couple of Aironet 11xx and 12xx Access Points in our Warehouse.
A couple of days ago, the switch where these access points were connected to, stopped working.
We ordered a HP/3Com 4500 switch, but the PoE does not work at all for the access points.
We did some research and came across a protocol that the AP is using for PoE. (802.3at)

We searched for a switch capable of this protocol. Ordered a HP 2620-24 PoE.
Just installed it, but the PoE for the AP's still not works.
Changed the output watts for the ports, to max. (33 watt)

Nothing seem to work.
Is there something we can do about this, or do we need to search for a specific Cisco Switch and pay a lot of money?

Hope someone will read this and can get me a nice answer.
