Perhaps you are exceeding the power budget of the switch?  I think the PoE Power budget is 180w max.  Also it will power only 12 ports @ 15.4w maximum 802.3af PoE.  Any idea on how many watts your Avaya phones are using?

The AP will not power up over POE even with all IP phones disconnected. The AP is known good as I can power it up over POE on a 6500 switch.

Im assuming you have an autonomous access point. I had an Aeronet AP that only appeared to work with the power brick. What I found is that the AP did not recognize the power source so it would not turn on the radio. Go to the CLI on the AP. There is probably an error message about power. I believe it gives you the command to tell the AP that its ok to use the power from the switch.

How can I see the CLI if there is no power to the AP? Thanks.
