Quick Configuration Guide
Console port settings: 19200 bps N-8-1, no flow control
A lot of people mess up here because usually the console uses 9600 instead of 19200 baud

Setting up the RFS6000 you only need to hookup the WAN1 or uplink port. I didn’t use the management port.
Configure Management Vlan, IP Address, Name Server and Default Route on both controller and AP
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan
int vlan x (where x = management vlan)
ip address x.x.x.x/x
ip name-server x.x.x.x
ip route 0.0.0.0/0 x.x.x.x
commit ***Must commit before changes take effect
wr mem ***Must save (wr mem) to save changes to flash
If you are not using VLANs then you can leave the interface in access mode and just configure ‘int vlan 1’
Go to web gui and configure the rest.
Setup the RF domain -> Timezone and country
Setup NTP server
Add AP to controller
on ap web gui go to adoption and add the controller IP there. save & commit.
Create wifi profile
add ssid and set bridging mode to tunnel
select the vlan that will be used for the wireless clients. The vlan and VE must be setup on the controller.
go to security select wpa or wpa2 then enter preshared key.
Add wifi profile to radio interface
create or use existing profile for AP device. go to interfaces -> radio. Add wifi here.
save & commit
users should be able to join the wifi network now. note you won’t be able to get an ip if you have no dhcp setup.
configuration -> services -> dhcp server policy
create policy here.
