I need some very dummy-proof help because I know very little about home networking; I've learned some info, but I don't know a lot of the terminology. I can't find any step-by-step instructions or help with my issues.
I have been working off of the Unleashed user interface (UI) online and the Unleashed app. I am having latency and connection issues with many of the devices in my home, but all APs (R510) are connected and working. I've called Spectrum and they show that I have a good connection, fast speed, and the modem and router support the speed I am signed up for.
The switch (ICX7150-C12P) shows as Disconnected in the UI. I first noticed it last September after a power outage took everything out. I had a Lennar Unleashed rep help me and he mentioned it's ok that the switch says disconnected, but that doesn't make sense to me. Why have a switch to just sit there in disconnected status? The rep said that after the power outage, the switch flipped from something-or-other to a router. We did a factory reset and that fixed the problem, but will this happen every time we have a power outage? Is there a procedure I should do after every power outage?
How do I find out what firmware version the switch is on? I found a YouTube video on how to update the firmware, but when I try to do it online (as opposed to downloading it to a USB drive), it doesn't upload. All 3 of the APs have the most up-to-date firmware, so I'm not concerned about those.
I have looked at a lot of forums, but people use jargon I'm not familiar with, so it hasn't been a lot of help. If anyone has any helpful docs to send me, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance for all your help!!
Please provide an image/photo where you are trying to connect via console from ICX 7150 - C12 P (USB type C to USB ) to PC. Before uploading the photos please login to the RUCKUS account and you can upload the image.
Here is a short guide for using the console connection.
I have spent HOURS trying to follow the multiple step-by-step instructions. I am not versed in fixing these issues and since there is no one to speak to over the phone to log into my computer, and this is a known issue caused by faulty equipment and not something I caused, I would like a replacement switch that will not have these issues.
Thank you for the detailed information you shared,
This issue happens when the Switch runs on the Routing code. The Switch should run on the Switching code to avoid these issues. After a power Outage Switch boots up on the other partition which may be running on a ‘Routing Code’ causing this issue.
This is a known issue. Once both the partitions on the switch are on ‘Switching code’, there won’t be the same issue again, as after a Power Outage the Switch boots up on the other same 'Switching Code' partition like the previous partition that it was on before. Please follow the below process.
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 tried all of this already. It happened last Sept as well. At that time, a gentleman was able to log in to my laptop, and I thought he fixed the problem, but apparently he didn't because it happened again. At that time I spent 2 days trying to figure it all out myself. I thought I got it, but it happened for a third time. It was then that I initially wrote on this forum. I have put countless hours into fixing this with no luck. I am out of options at this point. I do not feel like it is my responsibility for fixing something that is a product defect. What do I need to do to get a replacement?
