I have installed my access point but need to connect it to a different networking device.

If you've already installed your access point and then need to connect the access point to a networking device that does not have a DHCP server, you can log in to the access point's configuration pages and assign a static IP address within the range of the new networking device before you move the access point.

  1. Start your Web browser.

  2. In the location or address line, type the IP address of the access point, and press ENTER.

  3. Enter your password and login and click OK.

  4. Click the LAN tab on the configuration pages.

  5. Select Static and enter the IP address for the access point, then enter the Gateway, DNS server, and Subnet mask of the new networking device.

  6. Click Save at the bottom of the page.

  7. You can disconnect the Ethernet cable from the networking device and reconnect your access point to another networking device. You do not need to perform the configuration steps of the installation procedure.
