Hi everyone, I am new to extreme wireless.

I have got an access points WS-AP3825I-E-5G. I need to get console access to this access point to set IP address and then get web access. the console line is going on but nothing appear on the terminal.

Is there any specific parameters or it is just as same as switches.

Thanks in advance,
Husam

This is an controller-based/ ThinAP. You need a wireless controller to use it. IP address is assigned via dhcp.

Hi Husam,

I don't have an AP3825 and I don't found specific details to the console configuration in the installation guide for this AP. But I know that you had to use "baud rate 115200" for older AP models like AP3610.

Hi Husam

The Console port uses the following settings:

8
None
1
115200

By default the unit only operates in controlled mode, so you do require a controller for the AP's to function correctly.
The CLI uses "cset" commands.
Can set a stating IP address as follows:

# cset dhcpc disable# capply
# csave
// wait until the device returns with a "save config from cli shell" message
# reboot
# cset ipaddr wap-ip-address
# cset ipmask wap-netmask
# cset gateway gateway
# capply
# csave
// wait until the device returns with a "save config from cli shell" message
# reboot
Check that the above has been applied sucessfully:
# more /flash/home/config/current.cfg

Their is some commands to convert the unit from controlled mode to standalone mode, but this provides very limited features and I am sure is not supported by Extreme.

Thats look correct, but I don't understand Husam's use case. If you have a controller you could a assign a static ip address later in the web ui under "AP -> Static Configuration".

If Husam have no dhcp service runnig on the network and have to setup a static ip address, he should also setup the controller ip address.

Best Regards
