Access points can’t connect to the switch

New Contributor II

We had a power outage and since the WiFi is very spotty and slow. I saw similar posts and the fix was routing code. I did upgrade flash on primary and secondary to the latest version. Yet the APs are unable to connect to the switch. 3APs and the switch are on the same subnet. Any suggestions are much appreciated 


Hi @sairkv9 


Thank you for the response and the information you shared.

This issue happens when the Switch starts running on the Routing code (SPR). The Switch should run on the Switching code (SPS) to avoid these issues for Lennar home users. Due to a power outage/power spike, the Switch boots up on the other partition which may be running on a ‘Routing Code’ results in causing this issue.

As I can see from the screenshot you shared, your Switch is running on Routing code (SPR). And both partitions are on the Routing code (SPR) as highlighted in the below screenshot. In order to bring both Partitions on the Switching code (SPS) we need to upgrade the switch. (Please follow the upgrade process as described below)

We suggest you upgrade your switch to the latest stable version to avoid this issue in the future:

The recommended stable version is 8095g-

Below are the options or methods to perform the Upgrade on the switch: You could choose any one of these.

1st Option:

1. In this option, we will use a pen drive or USB flash drive in which we move the files to the pen drive and connect it to the Switch then through CLI we execute the commands to upgrade the Switch using the following guide as a reference:

How to Upgrade a Switch ICX-7150-C12P using a USB flash drive

2nd Option:

2. The following guide is an example of an upgrade via TFTP server, by using an application (FREE) to send files or upload remote files to a device, in our case, we will use it to update a new version to the Switch, basically it will send the image version remotely from the computer to the switch.

How to upgrade a Switch ICX7150-C12P via TFTP

3rd Option:

3. In this option we Upgrade the Switch from the Web Interface (GUI) of switch.

Try to access your switch from a web browser by pasting the below URL in http or https form whichever that works. or (IP address of Switch. is just as an example)


As you can access CLI, I would suggest you follow the 2nd option.

Please let me know if you have any queries in this regard.

Thank you again for your patience.

Thank you for the detailed information you shared,

From the case description, I could understand that you upgraded the Switch after a power outage and now you are unable to connect the APs to the Switch.

Could you please share the screenshot of the error you are getting? Also

Could you please let us know?

1. To which version you have upgraded your Switch? Please perform the ‘show version’ command and share the output.

Just to clarify I upgraded because the APs were unable to connect to the switch. Even after the upgrade the problem persists.
