How to configure IP assignment for different AP modes

Procedure to configure IP assignment for a Router Mode.

  • In Router mode, for PSK based network, there is an option to choose IP assignment from both Local network and Specific to the network (default).
  • But in Guest Network, user have privilege only to configure Default VLAN (specific to this network), due to Security Vulnarability and cannot configure using “Same as local network” option.

Below is the procedure to configure IP assignment for PSK based Network in Router mode:

  • Navigate to the Router Site.
  • Click networks are active (Networks) tab.
  • Click “+” icon and configure a PSK based Network by selecting “Employee”.
  • Click IP assignment and select either Specific to this network (default) or Same as local network option.
  • If Specific to this network (default) is selected, it provides an IP from Instant On’s uplink VLAN.
  • If Same as local network is selected, it provides an IP from the specified VLAN.
