WAP54G ver 3.1



I've got a WAP54G ver 3.1,  It was working fine and one morning, it just stopped!.


The power light and link light are on all the time, but aren't ever blinking. 

The orange cisco light goes on after a while. 

Cant' ping it or even detect it...


What should I do?

Re: WAP54G ver 3.1

If after resetting it as helm detailed and if it still doesn't work, I would say it is time for the trash bin. I used to use these APs in a business I did the IT support for and have setup a ton of them. I did have a very high failure rate. It seemed they dropped like flies there for a while and they have been discontinued years ago.

Upgrade to AC and you will see the speed you have been missing.

I have a working WAP54G here that I have used at home for years that still worked fine when I disconnected it and upgraded if you want it.
