Ruckus R610 not getting enough power warning?

Not enough power provided - it's capabilities are downgraded. 

We have an unleashed network with all R510's except for one R610.    They are all plugged into POE only.   We have switched out the cables with brand new 6a cables and it still says not getting enough power.   I don't see anything in the unleashed software to adjust much on the AP directly.   It is on version   

I saw some mention on another post about turning off usb or switching the power consumption mode but I'm not sure where to do that.

We got a POE+ injector just in case but it still says not enough power.

So I found the solution.   

  1. Go to the unleashed web interface for your APs.  
  2. Select Access Points
  3. Select the R610
  4. Go to Edit
  5. Go to the last tab - Other
  6. Last menu item - Override Group Config
  7. Select 802.3at POE
  8. Click OK
  9. Wait for it to reboot or reboot if it doesn't on its own.

While that wasn't that bad to do, I think the next unleashed firmware update should include the intelligence to say - if you are above an R510, auto select 802.3at POE.

This message just informs you that 802.3at power is detected and AP is switched to at mode. It's normal.  You run into problems when AP isn't switched to at mode -- as it doesn't work normally than.
