Mount the AP

a. Mounting on a Wall

1. At the installation location on the wall, set two screws in the wall 128 mm (5.0 in.) apart. Use the wall plugs and screws included in the screw kit.2. Slide the AP’s wall mounting slots down onto the screws so that the unit is secure.

b. Mounting on a T-Bar

1. Slide the bracket accessory onto the base of the AP until it clicks into its locked position.2. Position the ceiling-mount clip holders on either side of the T-bar, and then turn the AP until the two clips lock it to the T-bar.

Note: The AP mounting supports two different sizes of suspended ceiling T-bars. The position illustrated above is for 24.5 mm bars. Use the position at a 90 degrees angle for 15 mm bars.

Connect Cables

a. Connect LAN Cables

  1. Connect Category 5e or better cable to the Uplink(PoE) 2.5GBASE-T RJ-45 port. When connected to a PoE source, the Uplink(PoE) port connection provides power to the unit.
  2. (Optional) Connect a local LAN switch or computer to the LAN 2.5GBASE-T RJ-45 port.

b. (Optional) Connect AC Power Adapter

1. Connect the AC power adapter to the DC power jack on the AP and then plug the adapter into a nearby AC power source.

Check AP LEDs

  1. Uplink(PoE) LED — on green for a valid link.
  2. 2.4G and 5G LEDs — on green for radio enabled.
  3. Power/Status LED — on green for normal operation.

4 Connect to the Web User Interface

  1. Connect a PC directly to the AP’s LAN port.
  2. Set the PC IP address to be on the same subnet as the AP LAN port default IP address. (The PC address must start 192.168.2.x with subnet mask
  3. Enter the AP’s default IP address of into the web browser address bar.
  4. Log in to the web interface using default settings: Username = admin Password = admin

Note: To connect to the web interface using the Uplink(PoE) port, the IP address is automatically assigned through DHCP by default. If a DHCP server is unreachable, the Uplink(PoE) port reverts to a fallback IP address of

Note: To reset the AP to factory default settings, press and hold down the AP’s Restart/Reset button for 5 seconds.

Safety and Regulatory Information
