Power problems

New Contributor II
Hi, I have 6 unleashed R710s. I just upgraded to 200.8 because I am trying to solve slow speeds on the 2.4 ghz band. After upgrading, I now have an exclamation point remark next to each AP stating that its capabilities are reduced because it is not being provided enough power. This occurs wether I power them through my Mikrotik CRS328-POE or UnifiSwitch24Port-250W. Both of these switches are advertised as being able to provide 802.3at. Is it normal that these switches can't fully power the R710 or is it a firmware problem?

Hi, just change the setting of "PoE Operating Mode" for your AP Group from "Auto" to "802.3at PoE" will solve the problem.

Thanks that did it. However I was not able to solve my speed problem. My 802.11n speedflex download speed is only 25 Mbps on 2.4ghz... I have seen many posts suggesting to downgrade to 200.6; do you think that could solve it?

Yeah, based on the information you should probably downgrade to 200.6 .. I actually this did at my home this morning and speeds are much better.

I also downgraded from 200.8 to 200.6. My laptop throughput did not change I'm only getting about 330Mbps via speedtest, My mobile device changed from 100mbps to 330mbps now. I feel that is still a bit low, but i'm in an apartment building with lots of wifi noise.
