If you have set up a new NWA50AX access point for your home LAN and find that managing it through the Nebula app is unnecessary for your simple LAN setup with just four access points, you may want to remove the device from Nebula and administer it locally. By doing so, you can manage the access point directly without relying on Nebula's cloud-based management. This guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to achieve this and retain administrative access to the access point on your local network.

Topology and Scenario:

In this scenario, you have already set up your NWA50AX access point and configured it using the Nebula app. However, you now want to remove the device from Nebula and manage it locally.


  1. Go to the Nebula Control Center (NCC) web portal or open the Nebula Mobile App.
  2. Ensure that you are connected to the internet.
  3. Navigate to "License & Inventory" in the menu.
  4. Select "Devices" and locate the access point you want to remove from Nebula.
  5. Click on "Actions" and choose "Remove from organization."

Verification and Notes:

After the removal process is complete, the access point will reboot and switch to standalone mode (on-premise). You can now access the device locally using its web GUI. It's important to note that removing the device from Nebula will delete the Nebula configuration, and the access point will revert to its factory configuration. When accessing the web GUI in standalone mode, use the following login credentials:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: 1234

We hope this guide helps you remove your device from Nebula and administer it locally.
