Hi ptt, thanks for answer

Thanks again, i read allready the tutorial in the link that you toll me, but there explain what role plays the buttons and options on the rocket, is not a guide line to get configure a certain device like a bridge or access point, i have to gess what kind of config will work on try and error mode :mansad: , is not good that the company sell products with out gidelines to configure one or other kind option on the rocket that you need.

There are 4 config option *station, station wds, AP, AP WDS* that have relationship with bridge, router, router soho. I can not get the right configuration, i cant see the rocket like router and access point wifi devices..

in the Wireless, i configure the rocket like access point only.
in Network, i configure the rocket like router,
and cant see on wifi detect. SSID

the ip address can not be a problem that i cant see the SSID, so i think in that config is the problem or other else?

thanks ppt, im :icon_sad: no info on internet to get a guideline. thanks

Q. It's not good a company sells products without guide lines.
Of course they do. They clearly state for professional installers only. Any installer would know how to program the radios without instructions.

Turn off AirMax. It is on the first programming tab that looks like a bunch of pipes falling off a truck.
I spent most of my money on women and beer, and the rest I just wasted.

Solved problem

Thanks Full Power / WHT... i understand that the installer have to be the chain to get this kind of services and i know the companies know that, just i get desperate to make the device work.

The thing was de option button of DHCP, i change it from static to DHCP and inmediatly works, router to station transmit mode and thats it. :icon_razz:

Now i can go slow and read all the manual.

Thanks again.:ubnt_banana:

I called it a bird splat.
Buy the pipe idea is a good one too.

Re: HELP! How to configure rocket m2

The key to the AP config is changing the freq. to 20 mhz. Drove me nuts but simple fix ...thanks.
