How do I access the web management GUI from my access point's WAN port?

Q: How do I access the web management GUI from my access point's WAN port?



The WAN port by default will receive a DHCP client address if it is connected to a DHCP server. If no DHCP server is present, the AP will revert to a fallback IP address of 192.168.1.20 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. To access the AP's web management interface from the WAN port, follow these steps:

1. Use your web browser to connect to the management interface using the IP address assigned by your DHCP server. If the AP is not connected to a DHCP server, you can access it at the fallback IP address 192.168.1.20 (be sure to change your IP to 192.168.1.x if necessary).

2. Log in to the interface by entering the default user name “root” with the password “admin123”, then click Login.  

The IP address can be set to a static address in "Internet Settings".
