Login to Local Access Page

If you have problem getting the access point to Cloud, you can login to Local Access Page to do IP settings and diagnostics.

  1. 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.

  2. 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)

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:
