Hi everyone,

Could you please share with an idea of how to connect to extreme wi-fi access point locally by cables. Is it possible? I tried to connect access point by cable and search on the browser for configuration menu but nothing pops up there. Could you please make any suggestion?

If you're talking about modern ExtremeWireless APs (37xx, 38xx, 39xx) you can use console or SSH but no Web GUI there. They are meant to be managed via a controller.
Please describe the situation more thoroughly.

Hope that helps,
Sorry for delay answer, Wireless AP3805i Internal

As I understand, I have to connect to the access point by ssh? In this case could you please give more detailed information

you can SSH directly to an AP with admin:new2day as default credentials.
cget, cset and capply - those you might like.
However, unless you are doing one or two specific configurations (static IP, controller IP), this is not recommended.
Is there any problem to use the WLAN controller?

Hope that helps,
