we have Merkai MR access points that are going into a repeater mode and causing loops in the network. these access points are power with a power injectors " not a POE from the switch " , when we upgrade the switches and reboot. MR will lose access to the gateway but it still powers up from the power injector then it goes into repeater mode.
any way I can stop it from going into repeater mode?
Can you test with a POE line connected to the switch (temporary) to see if it goes mesh? If it works as expected, then we know the issue is probably on the wiring with the POE Injector (or the Injector itself).
