Class B Digital Device:
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
„ Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

What You Need to Get Started:

•
•
•
•
•

You need to provide 2 straight patch segments of CAT-5e Ethernet cable with RJ45 connectors
on each end. You may also need a crossover cable to configure the AP24/AP58 if you are
connecting directly to a PC.
The first CAT-5e patch cable will be used to connect the AP24/AP58 to the POE module. This
cable needs to have RJ45 connectors preferably with no boots. Having a boot on the RJ45 cable
on the AP24/AP58 side may prevent you to properly install the Feed-Through Assembly. See
instructions on the next slide.
CAUTION DO NOT USE A CROSS OVER CABLE BETWEEN THE AP24/AP58 AND THE
POE MODULE. YOU WILL PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE AP24/AP58.
The second CAT-5e patch cable will be used to connect the POE module to your Switch/Router.
If you are connecting the POE module directly to your PC for setup you need to use a crossover
cable. The total length for both CAT-5e cable segments must not exceed 300 feet (~90 meters).
The options to setup the AP24/AP58 would be to connect your PC directly to the POE module
(using a crossover cable), through a switch (using a patch cable) or wireless. To connect using the
wireless IF set your PC/Laptop SSID to AP24/AP58 and click on connect. Once connected you
can follow the instructions shown on following pages using the WinBox.
The AP24/AP58 is shipped with a default private address 192.168.0.239. You can change this IP
address or setup multiple IP addresses for the AP24/AP58.
In order to get started quickly the AP24/AP58 is shipped with an internal bridge setup (called
“bridge1”) between the Wireless LAN Port and the Ethernet Port. This “bridge1 is setup with the
default IP address 192.168.0.239. You can also setup the unit in the router mode if needed to get
full routing, DHCP server, capabilities etc. The Wireless LAN is setup in the infrastructure AP
mode with a SSID of “AP24” (or AP58).

WNE Wiring Diagram
The wireless network equipment is powered by a 48 VDC Power over Ethernet power supply/injector
module. The following steps should be accomplished to power the WNE:
1.
Install the WNE enclosure either on a pole or to a wall.
2.
Follow the instructions in the next section to assemble the Ethernet weatherproof cable feed
through assembly.
3.
Connect one end of a patch (straight through) CAT 5e Ethernet cable to the AP24/58 through
the Feed through assembly.
4.
Connect the other end of the CAT5e cable to the power and data port of the Power Over
Ethernet Module.
5.
Locate the LAN Switch in your wiring closet and connect a patch (straight through) CAT 5e
cable from the IN/DATA port of the Power over Ethernet module to a LAN Switch port.
6.
Last connect the 48VDC power supply to the Power Over Ethernet injector. Using the
supplied AC power cord connect the power supply to the AC. The unit operates on 110/240
VAC, 50/60 Hz.

Cable Feed-through Assembly
Step 1: Use a Cat 5/6 cable with a open RJ45 connector without a boot.
•
•
Do not tighten compression gasket until you are finalizing the installation. The gasket should only
be fully tightened once. Thorough inspection of the compression fitting should be done if it is reused.
After assembly, we recommend completely wrapping the Feed-Through-Assembly using
waterproof outdoor electrical tape as a secondary water barrier.

Starting Winbox Using the MAC Address
Note: In order to connect using the MAC address your PC must be on different subnet than
the default AP24/AP58 IP address 192.168.0.239
1.
2.
3.
4.
Copy the WinBox application from the CD to a convenient folder on your PC
Double click on the WinBox application
The WinBox screen shown below will appear
Click on the square button “…” to the left of the “Connect” button.

Select the AP24/AP58 line.
Press the Connect button.
Login as “admin”
Password: (blank) CAUTION
DO NOT SET A PASSWORD
AND LOSE IT AS IT WILL
REQUIRE SHIPMENT OF
UNIT BACK TO THE FACTORY FOR PASSWORD RESET; PASSWORD SHOULD BE SET
AFTER SETUP IS COMPLETE AND PROPERLY LOGGED INTO YOUR RECORDS
7
Starting Winbox Using IP Address
1. If your PC is setup on the same subnet as the default AP24/AP58 IP address 192.168.0.239 then
you must use the IP address to login. Using a MAC address will not work.
2. To log in to the WinBox enter the IP address 192.168.0.239 in the Connect To field
3. Click on the connect button to log
in.
4. Used admin as login name and
leave the password blank.
5. You can change this as you wish or
add your own to the list if these do
not conflict with your network.
6. When using the IP address to login
make sure you only have one
interface enabled on your PC
which is the one being used to
connect to the AP24/AP58.
Try out the different buttons on the left to see all the available options;
• Ether1 and wlan1 are the ports that are active for the AP24/AP58.
• Ether2, ether3 and serial ports are not used on the AP24/AP58 even though they appear on some
of the menus.

Looking at Interfaces
1. Click on the “Interfaces”’ button on the left column
2. Double click on the “ether1” interface to see the illustrated traffic pattern
Setting Up the Bridge (already setup)
1. Click the “Bridge” button on the left column of WinBox
2. Click on the “+” button
3. Default bridge name is “bridge1”
4. click OK

Bridging the ether1 and wlan1 Ports
1. On the Bridge window click on the “Ports” tab
2. Double click on the “ether1” line
3. Select “bridge1” on the Bridge Port <ether1> window
4. Click OK
5. Double click on the “wlan1” line
6. Select “bridge1” on the Bridge Port <wlan1> window
7. Click OK
Bride1 Operating
You now have an operating bridge inside the AP24/AP58, close “Bridge” window.

Setting Up the IP Address
1. Click on the “IP” button on
the left column.
2. Click on the “+” button
3. Setup your network IP
address for the AP24/AP58
in CIDR format
(e.g.”192.168.0.239/24”)
4. Remember you are setting
an IP address for the
“bridge1”. Since the
AP24/AP58 is factory set as
a bridge the IP address is
only needed for the
management interface.
5. If you are setting the
AP24/AP58 as a router then
you would need to add IP
addresses for the “ether1” and the “wlan1” as well as setting up the appropriate routes.
Checking the Interfaces
Click on the “Interfaces” button on the left column now shows all the interfaces and the logical “bridge1”
11
Checking the Wireless Setup
1. Click on the “Wireless”
button on the left column of
the WinBox window
2. Then double click on the
“wlan1” line
3. You will see the window as
shown below. This window
has tabs on the top and
buttons on the right side.
4. Please note that some of the
tabs are hidden, to look at all
the tabs click on the “…”
square button at the end of the
tabs to see the list as shown.
5. The AP24/AP58 is setup as a
2.4GHz b/g access point
6. You can change the SSID if
you like. To hide the SSID
click on the check mark at the
bottom of the window
7. The AP24/AP58 is setup with manually set frequency channels. If you want the AP24/AP58 to
auto select the frequency setup the DFS mode to either “no radar detect” or “radar detect”. In the
“no radar detect” mode the AP24/AP58 scans for the frequency with the lowest interference and
selects that frequency. In the “radar detect mode” the AP24/AP58 selects the frequency like the
“no radar detect” mode, and switches frequency if there is interference afterwards.
Using the Web Interface
The AP24/58 can also be
accessed using a web browser.
However please note the web
interface has limited
functionality. Full
functionality can only be
achieved either via the
Winbox or using the built in
command line interface. To
use the command line
interface you can either use
the Terminal inside the
Winbox window or login via
Telnet or SSH.
