Ethernet Ports

The GR10-HW features a Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port that accepts 802.3at and 802.3af power
(labeled "Eth0, PoE"). This port should be used for uplink to your WAN connection.
Power Source Options
The GR10-HW access point can be powered using either the Meraki AC Adapter, PoE Injector
(both sold separately), or a third-party PoE switch.
Factory Reset Button
If the button is pressed and held for at least five seconds and then released, the GR10-HW
will reboot and be restored to its original factory settings by deleting all configuration
information stored on the unit.

Blinking Blue - AP is upgrading
Green - AP in Gateway mode with no clients
