And still I wait for the promo code (it's killing me, it's also now end of the week in the US so may have to wait until Tuesday our time for Monday USA time to roll around). Coming up to 48 hours now (applied Thursday evening).

What's the rush?  A 48-hour delay is not unusual. Go Wireless NZ are out of stock for E400s for another two weeks. (see earlier posts)

 

It won't happen overnight, but it will happen. smile

My quote for 3 arrived, now just to await stock with Go Wifi.

 

 

 

very easy, no making it look like a business expense at all too, Clearly stated in my application in the form it was for home.

 

 

 

After correcting the SKU number to their system and GoWifis details it went through easy.

As one who is in the queue for some new E400s, I am keen to know how good they are.

 

I can't find any reviews on Google.

 

Would the lucky people who took delivery last week like to give us their first impressions?  smile

I cant really do many good performance tests because the only AC client I have is my phone. As mentioned I was getting a solid 220Mbps. 

 

Other thoughts:

 

The web interfaces are nice to use (cloud and local config). It seems that what has been implemented is solid. I tested 802.1q trunking to my lab switch and was able to set up a wlan for my home network vlan and my lab network vlan.

 

It took a bit of mucking around as you need to create a new SVI (switch virtual interface) then delete the existing one then commit the config. I couldn't get it to work through the gui.

 

I also set up WPA Enterprise (802.1x PEAP +MSChapV2) for the lab network against a Microsoft RADUIS server (NPS). All seems to work very well. All-in-All I'm VERY happy so far. However, I was only using a Spark provided VDSL router for my wireless so it was pretty sh1t. I don't have another AP (e.g. xClaim) to compare it to.

 

 

 

Next step is to look at placement and get them mounted. 

 

At this stage I've decided to get a new managed switch to go with the EdgeRouter lite 3. I'll just stick to the adaptors for POE. As soon as I add a 24 port POE switch I'm looking at fans which I REALLY don't want. And I don't want the APs hanging off a mini-switch to the side. I want them trunked down to the main switch.  

 

so which 24 port switch? Maybe an HP 1810-24G V2.

We have ours, and set it up, range is similar or better (in some cases MUCH better) than the Engenius EAP350 we normally deploy. UI is intuitive, and fast. Haven't configured Cloud stuff yet but expect it to be the same. 

 

Issue for us will be price once the promo ends, they aren't cheap, and if they were the same price as the Engenuis we would probably pay the extra, but at over $100 more, not sure it presents $100 more value.

HELP!!!

I have just received my two E400s.

No written instructions - just a website reference on a red sticker "for the latest software and installation instructions".

 

The Cambium website is unhelpful.

 

Downloaded a 77-page User Guide which I find completely incomprehensible.

 

I just need something  in plain English to tell me the first steps to set it up.

 

I have created a Cambium Support Account - with difficulty - I had to wait an hour for a response.
I understand that I need license keys but have no idea how to generate these.
My PC can't "see" the device, and no new tireless ac transmitters are seen on my laptop.

 

I'm used to setting up Ubiquiti APs, but am completely stumped by the A400s.  frown

I know the manual may seem overwhelming at first but you can understand it if you put your mind to it :)

 

To get started go to https://cloud.cambiumnetworks.com/

 

Sign up, sign-in, on-board a device by entering the serial number (MSN number I think, on the sticker on the router). Approve the AP. Power on the AP and wait for it to check in. The first boot takes a while because it will download the firmware update, the power light will stay orange for about 5-10 mins. 

 

 

 

Once it checks in you will be able to see the IP address ts got from DHCP and then you can point your browser at that and configure the AP. 

 

That is one way to set them up. That's how I did it. 

 

 

 

*Edit* 

 

I don't think you need any license keys not that I'm aware of.

Start with the instructions on the side of the box. Set a static IP on your PC of say 192.168.0.100 then connect (via the POE injector) direct to your PC. Access the WAP at 192.168.0.1. Seemed straightforward enough from there though I haven't properly installed mine yet.

to connect over wifi

 

"192.168.0.1 is the fallback IP address for VLAN 1. Interface VLAN1 is configured to use DHCP by default and uses the fallback IP if no DHCP server responds.

 

If you're not using DHCP and want to access the device using a different IP address you can configure VLAN1 to have any static IP address and use that for management. "

"Have you tried connecting to it over its 169.254.0.0/16 IP address? Connect a laptop to its ethernet port, assign it an IP address in that subnet. The E400's IP will be 169.254.X.Y where X and Y are the last two bytes of the E400's MAC address."

Thank you smile

 

I hadn't read the small print on the box.

 

Now my E400 talks to my PC.

 

Onward!
