Powerbeam M5 - default password not workimg

New installation of PowerBeam M5.  Tried logging in with ubnt/ubnt and admin/ubnt credentials in a browser , no good.  Used Putty with the same credentials as stated above, same result.  I also tried root/admin, no successful.


Preformed a hard reset as well. NG.


I would appreciate any help to resolve this issue .


Thank You

Your 'hard reset' didn't take. Hold the button firmly for longer.

ubnt/ubnt are the factory default credentials.


It's possible the Powerbeam was previously configured to disable the reset button. TFTP mode is your way out:

Set a Frequency! Don't leave it on Auto!
Disable Uplink Connectivity Monitor
Always set-inform a Second time after Adopting
