[title] Test the TVS diode
[* orange] The TVS diode is located between the antenna and a large IC on the RJ45 port side of the board.
[* orange] The diode in question is a LittleFuse 24V uni-directional TVS diode, with J leads (SMBJ24A). Note the location of the white bar on the diode, towards the antenna.
[* black] Use a multimeter or ohmmeter to test that the diode has indeed shorted. It should read significantly higher resistance in one direction relative to the other. A shorted diode will read less than 1Ohm in both directions.
[* icon_note] If the diode is not shorted, then something else is wrong, and proceeding further may or may not help fix your access point.
