Need help finding IP Address for AP-7522


Preface: I'm not really a big network person. I just happen to be the most qualified to do the job where I work right now.

I've got an AP-7522 Access point, and I need help getting into the configuration. What's the process to do so? I've done some googling, and come up with a couple of things, but nothing has helped me so far. I've set up routers, and my own personal networking, but I've never dealt with dedicate access points.

Hey Ryan, I don't have any WiNG skills (yet) but I'm good in finding things and discovered the user manual - let's hope that the information is correct for that AP model.... if not I'll delete the post so no one could see that I was wrong 🙂

Ron, you've found something on our site that I'm having trouble locating. Can you post the link to that version of the guide please?
All I can turn up is a 5.4 and a 4.x version.

I've found in on the Extranet on the WiNG documentation section..
http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/ExtremeWireless/WING_5.8_APSRG_MN002229A01_EN.pdf

Or this one via the normal search... first document if you search for "AP 7522 Access Point Installation Guide"

I found the install guide. The v5.8 SRG needs to be listed on our public documentation site so it can be indexed by search. I'll forward that feedback along to the team. Thanks!

Hi Guys,
usually we rely on DHCP discovery or COM (console) when it comes to first installation, but in case you need to do a pre-stagging you may use the MAC digest as written in reference guide - take APIPA and convert last two octets of MAC into decimal form - that's so-called ZeroIP config (present in default setup).

Other than this you may check label on back of AP (AP75xx) and see the ZeroIP claimed there.

Last option would be an AP discover tool (part of some FW package) which allows you to find AP using MINT broadcast.

Great to have you and your WiNG expertise on the Hub Ondrej. Welcome!
Oh, awesome. I'll give this a shot. I've got a manual for it, but it doesn't cover actually connecting to it, other than "The IP is on the bottom of the unit.".

Dryden...thanks for joining the Hub.

I think this is our first question on the Community for WiNG products (formerly Zebra WLAN) from our user base and we're really excited to see it.

(NOTE: For those that may not be familiar the AP 7522 now to be part of Extreme -- http://www.extremenetworks.com/product/wing-ap-7522/)

Going forward, you'll see more and more WiNG content in our KB, WiNG conversations on the Hub and WiNG information in Extreme Unified Search. This is just the start and you get the prize for kicking this off....Extreme WiNG style.

Our Community Manager, Drew, will be in touch with a token of thanks.
