We recently had a storm here in California. I'm not sure if it's related, but my internet was going very slowly after that. I called AT&T and they suggested I switch to one of their routers, and I did and my internet is working fine now, but I have most of my home devices (Alexa, Ring, etc) connected to my old WiFi network using the Ruckus router. So I'd like to switch back, but I need assistance in re-connecting to it and seeing what the issue is so we can fix it. I'm not sure what version/model of the router it is and I don't know how to check that.
As per the case description, I could understand that your RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch is slow after a recent storm.
If there was a blackout or power outage and the switch gets rebooted because of that, most possible your switch starts running the wrong code which we call ‘routing code’ this is a known issue for Lennar home users.
An identifier of this problem is that it comes out as Switch-Router in the unleashed dashboard.
There we are going to see 2 important things the
-MAC address: Physical address of the device this never changes
- An IP address is a unique address (logical) that identifies a device on the internet or a local network like your home (this can change and may not be the same as the one shown on the dashboard)
Please follow the below steps:
To fix this issue, we must identify the ‘current’ IP address assigned by your local router to the switch ICX-7150-C12P
I will leave you a guide on how to perform an IP scanner on your local network to identify the switch IP address very easily.
How to find my Ruckus “Devices IP address” using free applications:
ICX7150-24P Router>enable (hit enter to accept the command) ICX7150-24P Router#copy flash flash secondary (hit enter to accept the command and wait: until the flash finished) ICX7150-24P Router#boot system flash secondary yes (hit enter to accept the command: the switch will reboot)

I) How to Fix Routing code issues on Lennar Home users via CLI
If access via IP address is not possible here is a guide on how to access to the Switch via console (cable access between your PC to the ICX 7150-C12P) in this case we need a USB type C to USB standard or Console cable Rj45 to USB.
I have reviewed all the post I could find on the issue of slow or throttled speeds. I can not find a fix for my issue. The switch is setting upload/download speeds to @300 mps even when direct connected to the switch with a laptop computer. I have completed software updates, but that seems to be to the APs and completed the flash actions no help.
