My client noticed the absence of the usual Wifi SSID in one area of his hotel and asked me to investigate
Apparently the local AP, a Zyxel WAC6502d, is now back to advertising it's default SSID : ZYXEL
From what I gather it was initially setup in AC Discovery mode and the NCX2500 provided it with its running parameters
So I disconnected it and connected my notebook directly to it (using a PoE injector of course)
It didn't provide me with an IP address; strange, I thought that the majority of APs functioned by default in stand alone mode
The manual indicated that by default its IP address is 192.168.1.2 therefore I configured my notebook's LAN interface accordingly
No joy, I can't ping the AP
I checked to see if the ZYXEL SSID was still being advertised and what do you know ? No ZYXEL SSID anymore.
I'm sure that there is a reasonable explanation for this situation
Anyone out there care to share their know how please ?
