hello,
the radios on this AP model is showing "status - initializing" "protocol - down". the actual BVI and gig interfaces are up/up and its keeping after many reloads.

show controllers is displaying:
Radio disabled due to POE
Radio stopped due to get code failed

obviously the AP is powered up and can be accessed via the network. i checked the switch and its delivering power fine. i even fine tuned the delivery priority to critical but still radios wont turn on...

any thoughts...

The 2602 requires 12W power to operate whereas the 1252 required 18W of power, so a standard PoE switch wouldn't deliver enough to the 1252 as 15.4W was the most standard PoE would allow.  It's fine for a 2602 though.

Are these APs joining to the WLC successfully?  Which WLC do you have?

Yes you need to join to WLC before radios come up.  If the AP has no SSID assigned they stay down.

when i tried to join it says "device type cannot be added to WCS. The selected controller(s) do not support Customized Web Auth".

i guess i'm stuck on this error. previous models join just fine...

Ok you have bigger problems here then.  The 2602 requires WLC code 7.2.  If you have WCS your controller can only run code up-to 7.0.240.0.  Any code later than that requires NCS or Prime Infrastructure instead of WCS.

So, the 2602 is incompatible with WCS.

What code to you have on your WLC?

I know :-)

So, you need to upgrade your WLCs to 7.2.110.0 or later code in order to support the 2602.  Unfortunately though that will mean you'll have to migrate your WCS to NCS or the newer Prime Infrastructure (preferable).

I would suggest that you install at least 7.4.110.0 on the WLCs and migrate WCS to Prime Infrastructure 2.0.  Be aware though that NCS and Prime won't run on Windows so you'll need either an appliance to run it, or a virtual machine in a VMWare environment.
