ATP500 unable to detect our 2 x WAC6303D-S access points?
We were able to earlier use them with the NCC. Just to test.But we would really want it to be managed directly by the ATP500.Have deleted both units from NCC and did a hard reset for both units. But still unable to loggin standalone or be detected by ATP500. Was able to update to latest version of firmware via earlier NCC.So far no success with standalone and AC via ATP500.Not sure how to proceed next. Been trying the pdf manuals from the get go...and still going over them...hoping for some assistance...Thanks
You may try to update to latest AP firmware by:
Configuration > Wireless > AP Management > Firmware
If AP is behind ATP500, then should able find that in AP list.
(Monitor > Wireless > AP Information > AP list)0
Hi Zyxel_Stanley!Many thanks for the reply, I've actually done that but it was not detected...I'm thinking of maybe doing an AP hard reset. Is that ok to try?Many thanks...0
Yes, you can make sure AP has deleted from Nebula first.
And then try to reset AP again. (click reset bottom until reboot)0
In the “Quick Setup” Wizard of the ATP500, there appears no option for Access Points, may they consider adding that feature in the next firmware release?
Only “WAN Interface”, “Remote Access VPN Setup”, “VPN Setup”. No “AP Setup” with the Wizard.
I think that would make sense to add for convenience and efficiency.
Am using latest firmware V5.00(ABFU.2) for the ATP500. Been a bit busy lately and was not able to follow up with my issue of detection by ATP500 with the AP. Was able to delete 1 unit from Nebula, and tried to configure via standalone. Kinda hit and miss at best. Not sure really if how to further proceed, I tried to follow the downloaded pdf files as a guide, but after a while it’s too bothersome to troubleshoot. The current firmware for the WAC6303D-S is V6.20(ABGL.0). I think that’s the latest.
Just my observation, it seems to be more attracted to reach out to the NCC when after a factory reset. It is actually nice and convenient to use the NCC. We use the other unit with the NCC. Problem is we would like to use the other features like the “rouge” detection and prevention,etc. Which does not appear to be available with use our AP model with the NCC. Since we purchased the ATP versus the USG Flex thinking that the ATP was the top of the line and superior in many ways, but it seems to me the USG Flex is now the way to go? Frankly it seems we should have gotten the USG Flex due to the NCC availability with that product line. Just an opinion.
How do I use the “CDR” feature if the AP can’t be detected?
Will give again a try now, to have the ATP500 detect the AP. I hope it works. If the NCC can detect the AP the ATP500 should have no problem detecting the AP.0
Do I need to buy a NXC2500 or NXC5500? Or doesn’t the ATP500 already have that ability?0
Because the AP seems to keep connecting to the NCC, please check that if the AP is removed from the organization first. You may check it in device information of Organization-wide> Configure> License & inventory. If the AP is still in the organization-wide, please remove it to let it in standalone mode. Otherwise, you can reset it via the reset button on the AP after remove it from the NCC.
You may use below command to check AP status when SSH to the AP.
Router> show hybrid-mode
The ATP500 is no problem to manage the WAC6303D-S, so when the AP is in standalone mode, please check if the AP can get an IP address and ping to the ATP500. If yes, please check if the AP in the ATP500 AP list and add it into ATP500.
If it's still any problem, please let us know which step above is not working, and we'll help to check details. And, if it's available, you may PM me a remote session via teamviewer or anydesk to the AP and ATP directly.0
