Power source option - An ECW AP device can be powered by an 802.3af/at-compliant PoE device or by DC12V input
LAN (PoE): Uplink port accepts an 802.3af/at power source.
LAN2: Data link if this port is built on a device.
Use your client device (e.g., a laptop, mobile device, or tablet) to find the SSID: “EnMGMTxxxx” (xxxx is the last four digits of the MAC address, found on the back of the device) and connect to it.
Under your web browser, enter the URL http://EnGenius.local or the localhost IP address (192.168.1.1) to access the device’s user interface. You can review device status after logging into the AP with the default admin account/password (default account & password: admin/admin)
By default, EnGenius cloud access points (ECW series) are assigned an IP address dynamically by the DHCP server. If you encounter issues with IP address assignment, please double check that the IP settings include IP address, subnet mask, gateway, proxy, and management VLAN. If any issues still exist, you may change your IP assignment from "DHCP mode" to "Static IP" via the following procedure:
Every device's status page includes useful information about the status of the device, basic configuration options (such as setting a static IP), and other tools. The following section will explain the items available on the device status page.
ECW Access Points provide the following information and configuration options on their local status page:
Contains information regarding the device overview, EnGenius Cloud overview, and network connectivity information.
Provides information regarding the name, model, serial number, IP address, MAC address, and current firmware.
Provides information about the Cloud registration status, date of registration, and time of last update.
Provides connectivity information to local network, Internet, and EnGenius Cloud.
Provides settings for IPv4 / IPv6 address, management VLAN, firmware upgrade, and other miscellaneous configuration items (such as HTTP/HTTPS Proxy). Users can also reboot the device or reset the device to factory default settings from here.
Issue: Not able to connect to the local access page URL
If the local status page URLs are still unreachable by the local DNS name for some reason, the local status page can instead be reached by going to the LAN IP of the device through a web browser.
Issue: Not able to access the local access page when connected to an SSID
Connect to the default SSID by completing the following steps:
Physically inspect the AP
Power On (Power LED)
Connecting to Cloud (Power LED)
No LAN Physical Connection
LAN Connected (LAN LED)
LAN Transmitting (LAN LED)
Wi-Fi Interface On (2.4GHz, 5GHz)
Wi-Fi Transmitting (2.4GHz, 5GHz)
Firmware Upgrade (All LED)
Orange, Blue, Blue, Green, Blue
Mesh Enabled (Mesh LED)
2. Check for available wireless networks (Check if a known default SSID is being broadcast).
3. If a default SSID is being broadcast, connect your device to it.
4. If no known default SSIDs are present, set up a manual wireless network connection. For the SSID name, use 'EnMGMT', e.g. 'EnMGMTxxxx', where the x's are replaced with the last four digits of the LAN MAC address.
5. After connecting, open a web browser and connect to one of the local access page addresses.
A) Connect the supplied power adapter (or power cord) to the switch and plug the other end into an electrical outlet. Verify the power LED indicator is lit on the switch. Wait for the switch to complete boot up. It might take few minutes to complete the process.
B) Connect one end of a category 5/6 Ethernet cable into the gigabit (10/100/1000) Ethernet port on the switch’s front panel and the other end to the Ethernet port on the computer. Verify that the LED on the Ethernet port of the switch is green.
The switch's default IP address setting is DHCP client mode, which will get an IP address from the DHCP server. It will automatically change to static IP address assignment if the switch cannot get an IP address from the DHCP server within two minutes of booting up.
If your switch cannot get an IP address from local DHCP server, or you would like to use static IP address assignment, you may follow the below procedures to manage your computer connection to the switch via a static IP address.
A) Once your computer is on, configure the settings of your network adapter. Open Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Properties
B) Select Use the following IP address and make the following entries:
IP Address: 192.168.0.10 (or any address in the 192.168.0.x network)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
A) Open a web browser on your computer. In the address bar of the web browser, enter the ECS switch IP address and hit enter.
B) The default username is admin and the password is password. We strongly recommend that you change these as soon as possible. Enter the username and password of the switch and then click Login.
*Your model number may be different in the web browser interface.
C) ECS Switch local access page will appear.
