Hi all, I'm struggling to connect a Ruckus 7372 to my Hub 3.0, what settings do I need to use as a WAP? I'm using it in a summerhouse at the end of the garden which has Cat 6 cable for pc but wifi is always being moaned for kids ipads and iphones so dropped on this and thought I'd connect up down there. Thanks
pretty sure that by default a standalone rukus ap will default to an IP address of 192.168.0.1 - which, annoyingly for you, is also the default IP address of your hub3 in router mode 🙂
Assuming it is in a factory default state, your best bet is cable the ruckus directly to your PC, configure a static IP address on your pc of 192.168.0.2 and then browse to http://192.168.0.1 to configure it..
Thanks Tehwolf, it was indeed, managed to sort the ip address and log in to the Ruckus, but I'm assuming the IPv4 and IP address need to be the same as my router? I must be missing something somewhere!
well, not strictly speaking, but for ease of management, give it an address in the same range as your router (but critically, not the same address!!)
ideally you want to give it an address that the hub won't assign via DHCP.. you can check what that range is by having a look at the dhcp settings on the hub..
if, for example, the range on the hub is 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.200 then give the ruckus an address of, say, 192.168.0.250 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 (though you may also choose to not bother letting the ruckus itself have internet access, in which case skip the default gateway part).
Alternatively, you could configure it to get an address via DHCP and it'll pick up an address from the hub..
