Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: Current

Installed about 10m of Cat6 cable for an EAP225-Outdoor but can't get AP to work. It powers on and broadcasts SSID but does get an IP address from the router. Swapped it for a standard EAP225 and this works just fine, so no fault with the cable. Took the EAP225-Outdoor back indoors and connect to router with cat5 patch leads and this works just fine. 

 

Any ideas as to why it doesn't work with the cat6 cable?

Check your cable for loose contacts. I use CAT.6 S/FTP cable for connecting EAP225-Outdoor when setting up devices in the lab. For outdoor installations, we usually use even UV-persistant CAT.5e outdoor cables with a ground-wire, since grounding is an essential requirement for any outdor device. Photo below is from a Pharos installation, but we also use this cable with EAP225-Outdoor. Note the additional ground wire:

In the end I just replaced the AP with a new one and that worked first time with the existing cabling so I'm guessing the unit is somehow faulty. I'll just send the original one back.

there are times when the connectors don't match up or a crimp on end warps the plastic a little and one of the pins does not make good contact.  because power and communications does not use the same pairs you can have one with out the other. 

 

another case i have seen when someone is using an ez-trough connector on a cable and plugging it into a shielded connection there is a greater chance of shorting out some of the pairs.
