Ruckus no longer broadcasting wifi

I have a new Lennar home with a Ruckus switch icx 7150-c12p, which is then hardwired to 2 different R510 APs. My ISP is Spectrum and I am using the Spectrum router. Our neighborhood had a power outage and since then I have been unable to locate my Ruckus WiFi network. I still have WiFi access via the Spectrum router and internet access by directly connecting to an Ethernet port through the Ruckus system. When I try to connect via the app it says “you are not connected to unleashed network.”

I contacted Lennar and they sent someone from Smart System Technologies (SST) as they are supposedly the ones that install in these homes. All the guy did was do a power recycle and verify all the connections were working but he was unable to fix the issue. He said the APs are connected and should be working but he couldn’t figure out why he couldn’t locate the network. He was thinking the switch malfunctioned after the power outage and is sending someone else to replace it.

Is it a bad idea to attempt a factory reset? Any other suggestions? Appreciate any feedback.

Is posible that the power outage affected the Access points. I would attempt a factory reset on the APs, if that does not work open a case.

Please don't factory reset until you have done the following:

1. Are the APs LED lights on? If not, then replace the switch
2. If so what LEDs are lit, what is the color and are they solid or flashing?
3. If the AP is getting power (because you see the LEDs on) then what is the color off the Power LED and is it solid? If not it is not getting an IP address from your Spectrum router. Spectrum normally only gives out a single IP address, so do you have a router doing DHCP & NAT?
4. One of the APs should have the CTL LED lit and it should be green & solid. This indicates the Unleashed Master. 
5. Only as a last resort would I recommend doing a factory reset, and even then you will need to setup the Unleashed network from scratch, not too hard but something that must be done.

Both APs have a solid green light for PWR. 1 AP has a solid green light for CTL. The 5G, 2.4G, and AIR lights are off. Our spectrum router has DHCP enabled.

At this point you can either follow the video for reset and reconfigure, call LENNAR and ask them to send someone who can reconfigure, or scan your network to find the IP address of your Unleashed Master and reconfigure that way.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll see what I can do.

Just to follow up, please unplug your Spectrum cable modem, router and Ruckus ICX switch, then plug them back in following the same order, letting each one power up fully before having the next one turned on. I know that you said you were getting Internet access from the Spectrum Wi-Fi, as well as direct Ethernet, but the R510 will not come up fully unless it detects Internet access, so let's see if something was not fully functional after the reboot that initially caused your situation.

I was actually able to get my network back up and running by resetting my APs and following the videos you linked to reconfigure. Thanks for the follow up!

Do you see the SSIDs you created under Unleashed, or do you see Configure.me-XXYYZZ SSIDs?

I do not see either the SSID we created under unleashed or the configure.me SSID.

Hi James,

Since you have mentioned "I still have WiFi access via the Spectrum router and internet access by directly connecting to an Ethernet port through the Ruckus system" so below things should be fine.

1- Device is definitely getting power.
2- Bridge of the AP is working (Indicating AP is functional) and that's how you are able to access internet when connecting to APs eth port directly.

Now try connecting laptop on AP's 2nd port directly and see what IP you are getting.

Note down the IP and subnet mask and then run any IP scanner application and scan the same IP  subnet.

In the result you should see the IPs of both APs, once you get the IP address, access the IP from browser or using putty (CLI).

Once you get access, run below commands to check the Unleashed status and WLAN status.

For Unleashed master AP (follow the sequence):

enable
show sysinfo
ap-mode
get director ip
get version
get wlanlist
get election

If you login to member AP:

get director ip
get version 
get wlanlist
get election

If you could get above details then we will have better understanding about current status and what should be the next possible action to fix the WiFi.

Regards,
Syamantak Omer

I was actually able to get my network back and running through help from above yesterday. But I will keep this in mind if I have issues again. Thanks!

I have the exact same situation and issue as the original poster. When the power came back on, the LED lights in our 2 APs are all off. I turned off/on the ICX switch but still the issue persists. I have a Ring Doorbell and a smart lock connected to the ports in the switch and they are functioning properly. But the 2 AP cables even if I relocate both to other unused ports are still not working and the LED lights in the switch are not turning on. I even tried unplugging and plugging  the cable back in the PoE ports on one of the APs but still none of its 5 LEDs turns on.

The issue was fixed. I contacted Ruckus Support and they remotely connected to my switch and re-configured the PoE. Thanks for the awesome support!
