What ip should I use?

  @ingeborgdot seems kinda strange if the POE AP lights up yet the link shows down.....I would speculate a bad CAT 5 cable perhaps...you could have power but not a good physical connectivity for data. 

 

When in doubt try the obvious.....

  @ingeborgdot my other thought....hook a laptop up to it (through the POE injector) and see if you can talk directly to it.  If you have Wireshark handy, you should see something coming out of it.  If you do...that may prove out that the AP is dead

  @Fleegle61 I have tried a laptop directly with an injector.  I don't have wireshark though.

If I hook up directly to a laptop, maybe I'm doing something wrong. What method would you use?

  @ingeborgdot if you can download wireshark and load it, that would help.  If not...then if you have the factory ip address of the AP you should be able to use a web browser to get directly into it.  Since its factory reset to stand alone mode, that should display something. 

 

The default should be 192.168.0.254

  @Fleegle61 I loaded it on my PC and laptop.  How do I use wireshark?

  @ingeborgdot set yourself up as 192.168.0.253 with a mask of 255.255.255.0.   You dont really need a gateway filled in

 

When you open up wireshark, you should see interfaces listed.  Just pick the one that is connected to the AP.  It might be called Local Area Connection or maybe Ethernet.  once it starts you should be data scrolling down the stream, most may be the laptop trying to talk to the world...but you should see some data coming from 192.168.0.254 when you power it up and it goes out to find the controller or anything else for that matter.

  @Fleegle61 I did this with the laptop hooked directly to the eap with the injector on it. There is nothing on any connection.  I'll try my pc now.

  @ingeborgdot  I would like to think that its not the EAP225 but if you cannot see anything coming out of it, it may be bad.  

 

If you can ping the AP as seen below in my sample screenshot you will know its not the issue.  But if you cant ping it, and nothing is coming out of the AP when you power it up and watching wireshark...that definitely puts the nail in the coffin.
