Bought a Ruckus 7363 for use as a standalone WAP. I can connect to the 7363 via wireless, but the unit does not connect to my LAN. It is plugged into a WatchGuard hardware firewall with IP address 192.168.16.1. The firewall is also my DHCP server. There is a server on the network with IP address 192.168.16.2 (that is also the DNS server address). Do I need to change the default internet configuration on the 7363? I checked the DHCP leases on the hardware firewall and the 7363's MAC address was not listed, so I assume it has no lease. Thanks.
Did you configure the AP or was it somehow pre-configured? As-shipped, the APs are not set for standalone operation and you have to configure them. Log into the AP via an ethernet cable as outlined here: https://support.ruckuswireless.com/do...
I configured it as per Ruckus instructions with a 192.168.0.1 connection on a laptop and followed the instructions. Everything on the configuration seemed to work fine. I suspect I need to enter some default gateway information (192.168.16.1 on my system) or a preferred DNS server (192.168.16.2 on my system). I can't figure out if I need to assign a static IP address to the AP to do that. I'm sure the Ruckus is working on wireless connections- just not to the network.
Thanks, but I'm not familiar with secure shell. The only access I can get to the configuration page is via the setup instructions for the 7363 on a laptop. Once it is connected to my LAN, I can't ping it at 192.168.0.1 nor does the device appear in my DHCP server's lease logs (I searched by MAC address), so I assume it may not be able to locate the DHCP server.
