LED Indicator

The AP9131DN & AP9132DN provides multiple indicators: SYS indicator, Link indicator, and Wireless indicator. The following table describes indicators on AP9131DN & AP9132DN.

Notes: Indicator colors may vary slightly at different temperature. Indicators of the same type have the same state meanings.

Descriptions about the SYS indicator

Type Color Status Description
Default Status after Power-on Green Steady on

The AP is just powered on and the software is not started yet.

Software Startup Status Green Steady on after blinking once After the system is reset and starts uploading the software, the indicator blinks green once. Until the software is uploaded and started, the indicator remains steady green.
Running Status Green Blinking once every 2s (0.5 Hz)

The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and STAs are associated with the AP.
The system enters the Uboot CLI.

Blinking once every 5s (0.2 Hz)

The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and no STA is associated with the AP. The system is in low power consumption state.

Alarm Green Blinking once every 0.25s (4 Hz)

The software is being upgraded.
After the software is uploaded and started, the AP working in Fit AP mode requests to go online on the AC and maintains this state until it goes online successfully on the AC (before the CAPWAP link is established).
The AP working in Fit AP mode fails to go online on the AC (the CAPWAP link disconnects).

Fault Red Steady on

A fault that affects services has occurred, such as a DRAM detection failure or system software loading failure. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually.

Descriptions about the Link indicator

Type Color Status Description
LINK Green Steady on The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and no data is being transmitted.
ACT Green Blinking The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and the AP is transmitting data. The indicator blinks more quickly when more data is being transmitted.

Descriptions about the Wireless indicator in traffic volume mode

Color Status Description
Yellow/green Off Radio bands are disabled, and no STA is connected to the AP.
Yellow/green Steady on The AP has STAs connected to the 2.4 GHz radio or 5 GHz radio, but no data is being transmitted.
Green Blinking The AP has STAs connected to the 2.4 GHz radio and is transmitting data. The indicator blinks more quickly when more data is being transmitted.
Yellow Blinking The AP has STAs connected to the 5 GHz radio frequency and is transmitting data. The indicator blinks more quickly when more data is being transmitted.
Yellow/green Blinking alternatively The AP has STAs connected to both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio frequencies. The indicator blinks more quickly when more data is being transmitted.

Descriptions about the Wireless indicator in signal strength mode

Color Status Description
Yellow/green Off The AP is not transmitting or receiving data or the signal strength is extremely low.
Blinking once every 2s (0.5 Hz) The AP is transmitting or receiving data normally, and the signal strength is low.
Blinking green once every 0.25 seconds (4 Hz) The AP is transmitting or receiving data normally, and the signal strength is medium.
Steady on The AP is transmitting or receiving data normally, and the signal strength is high.
