2.5 LED Indicators
Both AP-7131 and AP-7131N model access points have six LEDs on the top of the access point
housing, and one optional LED light pipe at the bottom of the unit. However, an AP-7131 model access
point does not use LED 6, as no third radio is available. Five LEDs illuminate (on top of the housing)
for dual radios models and four illuminate for single radio models.
The access point utilizes two (different colored) lights below each LED. Only one light displays within
a LED at any given time. Every light within each LED is exercised during startup to allow the user to
see if an LED is non-functional. The LEDs turn on and off while rotating around in a circle. Since two
LEDs feed each light pipe, the pattern is from left to right, then right to left.
The LEDs on the top housing of the access point are clearly visible in wall and below ceiling
installations. The top housing LEDs have the following display and functionality:
The LED blink rate is proportional to activity. The busiest traffic
corresponds to the fastest blink, while the slowest traffic corresponds to
Depending on how the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz radios are configured, the LEDs
will blink at different intervals between amber and yellow (5 GHz radio)
and emerald and yellow (2.4 GHz radio).
