Hello Guys.


I have got a new  Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR2 , and I am trying to connect it through Ethernet and serial port, but none of them is working. I tried with the default IP, with the IP assigned to ... by DHCP server, and even tried to connect on COM ports as was suggested on the Cisco website, any idea what could be the problem?

Do you have a LAP attached to the coax ports? If so is it powered up?

I am trying to connect at the serial port (COM1, COM2), and when I plug in the serial ports, I can see the lights turned on, but still not able to connect,

I assume that when you do that you are serializing to the AP and not the injector.  So if there is no AP connected via the coax's then there'd be no serial either.

The power injector does not require configuration or management.

So I'm still wondering if you have a working AP connected and if it's powered up.

So, does it mean that the injector does not have any IP and we cant connect to it  visa any web console or putty etc?

Exactly.  It's not a manageable device.  Those ports are pass-through to the actual AP.
