IP Configuration in AP/SU

IP configuration

To configure the IP Configuration, Click Network > IP Configuration

Network Mode: Bridge

Bridging: A bridge is a class of network device that's designed to connect networks at OSI Level 2, which is the data link layer of a local-area network (LAN).

Note: For AP the Network mode is set as default (Bridge) and in SU Network Mode options are set as Bridge/ Routing.

Address Type Static

A static IP address is simply an address that doesn't change until the device is decommissioned or your network architecture changes

Address Type Dynamic

Dynamic addresses are assigned, as needed, by Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers and are subjected to change periodically.

IP Address

An IP address (internet protocol address) is a numerical representation that uniquely identifies a specific interface on the network.

Subnet Mask

The subnet mask number helps to define the relationship between the host (computers, routers, switches, etc.) and the rest of the network.

Gateway IP

A gateway IP refers to a device on a network which sends local network traffic to other networks.


A domain name server is an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses.

Primary DNS

A primary DNS server is the first point of contact for a browser, application or device that needs to translate a human-readable hostname into an IP address.

Secondary DNS

The secondary (slave) DNS server is an authoritative server that obtains information about a zone from the primary server via zone transfer.
In most cases, a primary and a secondary DNS server are configured on a PC that is connected to an internet service provider (ISP). There are two DNS servers in case one of them happens to fail, in that case the second is used to resolve hostnames you enter.

Note: If the DNS server could not find the correct IP address that's associated with the host name you enter, the website can't be located and loaded.

Fallback IP

The Administrative Web Interface is available via the fallback IP address when there is no DHCP server. A Static IP address can be configured when in fallback mode. In Fallback IP Select the Status Enable/Disable, and enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway

Enable: The administrative can access radio web interface via the fallback IP address in any case.

Network Mode: Bridge


Routing mode deployment often uses the NAT function, so it is also called NAT mode. In routing mode, each interface has its IP address which means interfaces are in the layer 3 zone. A firewall in routing mode can work as a router and a security device.

Nat Status: Enable/Disable

If NAT is turned off, the device will work on pure-router mode.

Note: The default status of NAT is disabled, so without special demand, please don't select the enable option.
