Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use SecureEasySetup to configure wireless security for the access point?

Yes. For the initial setup of the access point, refer to the installation instructions.

      1. Click the SecureEasySetup button on the back of the access point.

      2. Press the SecureEasySetup button in the utility for the client adapter. Your client adapter will display a message when the connection has been successfully completed.

How do I restore the access point to its factory default settings?

First, be aware that restoring the factory default settings loses all configuration changes that you made.

If you are certain that you need to restore the factory default settings, use a small object such as a paper clip to press in and hold the reset button on the back of the access point for 7 seconds.

After you restore the access point, reconfigure the basic settings of the access point, or, if you made a backup of your settings, restore the settings by using the backup.

Can I use the access point if my networking device does not have DHCP?

Yes. By default, the access point is configured to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server, but you can manually set the IP address of the access point from the configuration pages. For information on assigning a static IP address to the access point, see The networking device I am using does not have a DHCP server.
