How can I determine whether an AP is qualified

1. If the AP is in any state except fault, for example, normal and download, the AP is qualified.

NOTE:
The preceding method applies to the scenario where an AP is added offline, for example, the AP is generated using configuration file or is manually added offline. If the AP is not added offline but you can still view information about the AP on the AC, the AP is working properly regardless of its status.

2. Observe whether the AP indicator works normally. See description of indicators in installation guide of the packaging to determine whether AP indicators are working properly.

3. You can determine whether an AP is qualified by logging in to the AP. Before the login, ensure that the network cable used to connect to the AP is working properly.
NOTE:
If the AP needs to connect to an Ethernet switch, ensure that the Ethernet cable is working properly. If the Ethernet cable is not working properly, for example, RJ-45 connectors are short-circuited, the AP may fail to be powered on or fail to work properly. Before connecting an Ethernet cable to the AP, use the cable test tool to check whether the cable is qualified. If the cable is unqualified, replace it.

a. Check whether you can log in to the AP through the serial interface and enter the CLI.
Connect the AP and PC using the serial cable.
- Log in to the AP through the serial interface. On the AP serial interface, the baud rate is 9600 bit/s, the data bit is 8, the stop bit is 1, and there is no parity bit.
- If the login succeeds, the AP is working properly.

b. Check whether you can use a command to log in to the AP through the serial interface.
NOTE:
The default IP address of the AP is 169.254.1.1.
Enter the default user name admin and initial password admin@huawei.com.
- Assign the PC with an IP address on the same network segment as the default IP address of the AP. Connect the network cable to the AP and PC.
- Log in to the AP using Telnet.
If the login succeeds, the AP is working properly. If the login fails, reset the AP to restore the factory settings. Then, log in to the AP again.
