Basic Access Point Configuration
Once the Access Point is installed and powered on, complete the following steps to get the device up and running
and access management functions:
1. Attach an Ethernet cable from the Access Point to a controller with an 802.3af compatible power source
or use the PWRS-14000-148R power supply to supply power to the Access Point (once fully cabled).
If your host system is a DHCP server, an IP address is automatically assigned to the Access Point and can
be used for device connection. However, if a DHCP server is not available, you'll need to derive the IP
address from the Access Point MAC address. Using this method, the last two bytes of the MAC address
become the last two octets of the IP address. For example:
MAC address -
Zero-Config IP address -
To derive the Access Point's IP address using its MAC address:
a. Open the Windows calculator by selecting Start > All Programs > Accessories > Calculator. This menu
path may vary slightly depending on your version of Windows.
b. With the Calculator displayed, select View > Scientific. Select the Hex radio button.
c. Enter a hex byte of the Access Point's MAC address. For example, F0.
d. Select the Dec radio button. The calculator converts F0 into 240. Repeat this process for the last
Access Point MAC address octet.
2. Point the Web browser to the Access Point's IP address. The following login screen displays:
