Step2: Power On Device

The EnGenius Cloud AP devices can be powered by any of the following:
  • EnGenius Cloud PoE Switch or 802.3at PoE+/802.3bt PoE++ compliant Switch
  • EnGenius PoE Adapter (EPA5012GP/EPA5060HBT)
Do not use both power sources at the same time.

Connecting to a PoE Switch

Connect the Ethernet cable from the EnGenius Cloud AP directly to the PoE port of the PoE switch.
AP is powered by a PoE Switch

Powered with a PoE Adapter

(A) Connect one end of the Ethernet cable into the LAN (PoE) port of EnGenius AP and the other end to the PoE port on the PoE Adapter.
(B) Connect the power cord with the PoE Adapter and plug the other end into an electrical outlet. (C) Connect the second Ethernet cable into the LAN port of the PoE Adapter and the other end to the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • EnGenius EPA5012GP for power source of ECW270 only (without PSE out support).
  • EnGenius EPA5060HBT for power source of ECW270 and PSE out.
  • Please ensure to use cat5/cat5e UTP/STP RJ45 Ethernet cables.

Step3: Connect to the EnGenius Cloud

Once the device is powered on and ready to connect to the Internet, the LED indicator will stay Solid On, which means the device is now connected to the EnGenius Cloud Platform. It will automatically download the default configuration settings from EnGenius Cloud for automated provisioning.
When the Access Point is connected to the EnGenius Cloud Platform for the first time, it will automatically check the latest firmware version available. If the firmware upgrade is required, it might take 8~10 minutes to complete the process. The LED indicator will be Flashing (0.5 sec) till the process is finished.

Step4: Manage with the EnGenius Cloud

Log in to the EnGenius Cloud platform to configure detailed settings. For more information, please refer to User Manual.

Troubleshooting

If your AP cannot be managed by the EnGenius Cloud Platform, there might be a problem with connecting to EnGenius Cloud.
To troubleshoot the connection issue, you may log in to the Device Local Access page:
  1. 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 MAC - MAC would be found on the back of the device) and connect to it.
  2. 2.
    Under your web browser, enter the URL: http://EnGenius.local or http://192.168.1.1 to access the device's user interface.
  3. 3.
    You can review the device status after logging into the AP with the default admin account/password (admin/admin).
  4. 4.
    Check the information on Network Connectivity and take action if necessary.
