Wireless Access Point don't come up on network.

Mountain Peak Computers completed a contract job for one of the national computer service providers.  The job was in Colorado Springs and took about 3 hours.

 

Once on site I was informed that 2 of the 10 Cisco Access Point were no longer on the network.  The first access point found and tested was working.  After locating one of the access points that was not working, I moved it and plug it directly to a PoE injector that was known to be working.  It came up  on the network and was working.

 

Next I followed the network cable in the false ceiling to a point where I could not trace it any further.  I then talked to the building manager and asked if there was an office on that side of the building with wall jacks.  He directed me to a office that was close by.  Sure enough under a desk in the office I was able to locate the 2 PoE injectors.  One had no power and the other had power but no network light.

 

After pulling out the desk I discovered the problem.  Someone had plugged the Wyse Terminal directly into the network jack on the wall where the hub that all the other devices, including the Access Points and a printer, where plugged into.

 

So I used another network cable to directly connect the hub to the network jack, plugged the DC power into the PoE injector and then plug the Wyse terminal in to the hub.  The printer in the office began to print out a job.  Remote tech support called to tell me the Access Point's had just come up on the network.

 

I took pictures of the job and completed the required paper work and checked out with tech support and then the computer service company that assigned the job.

"Excellent fast service. My sick laptop was well and healthy within two days. Tom did a very good job, I consider him trust worthy, respect his opinion and appreciate his work. "

"I normally fix my computer myself. However, when about half of the parts seemed to go bad all I once I needed a little help figuring out which ones still worked. I was afraid that if I told them upfront that I didn't intend to buy anything I might not get the best service, but I was wrong. I got my computer back the day after I dropped it off, with a list of working and non working parts. I thought the price was very fair as well. The staff was also very friendly. "

"If your computer is broken you can bring it here. They are doctors for your electronics. They work quickly and are very successful. The prices are very fair. They always take the time to explain all problems with you and ask you what you would like them to do before they do it. The pricing is very fair. Very nice folks here. "
