NanoStation M2 Setup

Hi, Earlier today I received a NanoStation that I ordered. I have plugged in everything in the same manner that is shown in the examples and for some reason it keeps disconnecting the lan cable that I plug in so that I can access 192.168.1.20, Is someone able to help me? I have tried this on Windows and Ubuntu.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Nothing useful on the support pages. I did how ever find this though a google search. www.ubiquitishop.com.au/files/nanostationm_locom_qsg.pdf This was exactly what I received in the box, and it is the exact same thing that I did. It just doesn't connect properly like it should, It tries to connect and then gets rejected.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Still, neither of those links provides any assistance to the problem that is occuring to my system. And I am trying to get it working right now and it is the same problem as before.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

When you plug your computer into the PoE's LAN port, the ummm...green LAN LED on the radio should come on. Is it?

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Then you have a working ethernet connection.
Make sure your computer is set on the same subnet as the radio. Set your computer to 192.168.1.21
Also download the Discovery Tool, www.ubnt.com/download#app

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Okay. I finally got in, but now when I try to connect to the Wifi that the Nanostation has provided, lets call it "Test", It doesn't connect on either my laptop or my phone. Is there something that I am doing wrong?

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Turn off Airmax and set channel width to 20MHz.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

And on Ubuntu it states "Activation of network autentication failed". That is when connecting to the Wifi "Test".

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Did both of those, they might have helped with 1 issue, but they didn't help with this one I think that it may have something to do with some DHCP settings.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Okay. I've got the DHCP Settings done, so that now new lan users connect automatically. Now when I try to connect via wireless it just doesn't connect the same way. On the Main page, when I go down to Monitor => DHCP Client, it says the following:

DHCP Client Information
Interface: WLAN0

Status: Not connected.

Can someone please provide some information on this? I have been through every inch of this devices settings.

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Re: NanoStation M2 Setup

Reset everything to default with Reset Button. Set everything to static IP for testing. Get that working, before making it complicated with too many variables.
