Cisco AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9 AIR-LAP1131AG-E-K9 dead upon re-estabilished powerline

I noticed a mass death of MANY AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9 AIR-LAP1131AG-E-K9 Cisco access point after serving online for a long period (5 or 6 years). They simply do not power up anymore using legacy PoE adapter AIR-PWRINJ3 or legacy power supply (46 volts). Some of them still powers up using AIR-PWRINJ4 (56 volts).

It seems that the problem is due to a failure of an electrolitic condenser of the onboard switching power supply.

My collegue is investigating the problem.

Updates and warranty-voiding risky solution will follow hopely soon.

Close your router to all unauthorized hosts first:

conf term
  ip access-list standard acl_snmp
    deny any

Then enable explicitly shutdown via snmp set:

snmp-server system-shutdown

! Enables system shutdown using the SNMP message reload feature.
snmp-server community verysecret rw acl_snmp

From your management host issue:
$> snmpset -v1 -c verysecret targethost.domain . i 2

Your router / AP will be immediately reloaded.

Enabling extended Cisco-AVPair in AP access requests

(config)# radius-server vsa send authentication

This command enables sending of the following information:
    Cisco-AVPair = "ssid=eduroam"
    WISPr-Location-Name = "Location Unspecified "
    WISPr-Location-ID = "isocc=IT,cc=39,ac=32 ,network=eduroam"

The same also works for accounting:
  (config)# radius-server vsa send accounting

Tested on Aironet 1142
