Ports

Every network requires the E0/PT or ENET port of the AP or Router to be connected to the gateway or switch using an Ethernet cable. Each Instant On AP has a single E0/ENET port. To view the details of the port and the uplink status, follow these steps:

1. Tap any of the APs listed in the Inventory list. The Access Point Details page is displayed with details.

2. Under the Ports section of the Access Points Details page, view the details of the ENET port, the uplink status, and the upload and download throughput rates.

Port Details

Access points operate only on the E0/ENET port. The Port details link for APs displays the name of the ENET port in read and write mode.

 

The Port details link is not displayed if the AP is connected as a mesh point in the network.
