WAP POE Overload

WAP POE Overload

Power Source: PoE 802.3at

The AP initially negotiates only 16W power from the switch and whenever the AP demands its regular 802.2at power - the switchport marks it as "PoE overload" and the AP powers off.

It keeps disrupting the user's connection as it is intermittent and goes on and off every now and then.

Is there a solution to this issue?

We tried moving the APs to a different port and downgrading the Switch firmware to 16.7 but issue is still on going.

Does the switch indicate that it has PoE budget available?

Yes, under PoE Usage

Are you using the USB port on the AP?
