Based on the IAP model, you can power on the IAP by using an
AC adapter or Power over Ethernet (PoE). Use the option that
suits your IAP deployment environment.

Verifying the Operating Status

After setting up an IAP and creating a wireless networks, use the Instant
UI or the LEDs to verify the operating status.
Verifying Status Using LEDs
You can use the LEDs to verify that both radios are active after the AP
initialization and configuration.
The following table lists the Ethernet ports available on an IAP and the
corresponding status indication:
The IAPs boot with factory default configuration and will try to
provision automatically. If the automatic provisioning is
successful, the instant SSID will not be available. If AirWave and
Activate, or Central are not reachable and the automatic
provisioning fails, the instant SSID becomes available and the
users can connect to a provisioning network by using the
instant SSID.
Aruba recommends that you change the administrator
credentials after the initial configuration. For more information,
see the Management Authentication Settings section in Aruba
Instant User Guide.
The Country Code window appears only when the IAP-ROW
(Rest of World) variants are installed. The country code setting
is not applicable to the IAPs designed for US, Japan, and Israel.
