  • You might want to update your question with more details, such as AP model (presumably 3702 but that is just a guess based on your link), firmware, more details about the issue - how often it happens, what has recently changed, using a WLC or using autonomous mode, etc. Jul 14, 2014 at 19:23
  • @legioxi Thanks, the post has been updated.

  • Can you try upgrading to the latest firmware version first and see if the issue persists? 15.2.4-JB5(ED) as of this writing. It would appear that radio reset code 71 is undocumented.

Status 71: Reset to update radio status on WLC. Also usually done upon AP joining the WLC after boot up.

Cisco Support Community - %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface Dot11Radio0, changed state to down
