I have 2 Cisco 1830 AP deployed. Both are having Cisco Mobility Express software loaded. Secondary AP is in CAPWAP mode and that's fine. The master AP is working fine for 1 to 2 days (solid green) and then it started blinking in green, amber/red mode. I can't ping the master AP management IP when this happens. A power off and power on of the master AP will fix the problem. Anyone have any idea?

According to Cisco, the unit is either joining / in discovery, or has a power supply problem.

It is also reported that this problem is due to not having software updates configured.

Hi Klahn, I'm using AIR-PWR-B power adapter for the 1830 as this is what the supplier provide. Could this be a potential problem?

Could be the supply, could be the wiring, or it could be neither.  Have you got another power supply of the same model you can exchange in for this one?

It's a bug by the sound of it.  What version of ME code are you running?
