UBIQUITY Router Configuration

The UBIQUITY Router can be configured in two ways:

  • Using an Ethernet connection to the device

  • At least one uppercase character

  • At least one lowercase character

  • At least a symbolic character

The list will be populated with a number of devices that have password matching with the one provided and they will be identified with the Ethernet interfaces MAC addresses.

Select the one you need to configure from the list and click “Configure” to go ahead with the configuration.

The settings are divided in categories. Click to expand what you need and provide the required settings.

Detailed information per each category are in the Control Center user manual available from the “help” menu in the upper right corner of the main Control Center window.
