Auto-Configuration Network Setup: The default setting of APG is DHCP client. When the APG is connected to a LAN that already has a DHCP server present, the APG takes an IP address assigned to it by the server. When the APG is connected to a LAN that does not have a DHCP server, the APG becomes the DHCP server in the network. • Why doesn't my device obtain an IP address automatically? The device will ask for an IP address from your enterprise DHCP server while booting up, however, sometimes it might fail to obtain an IP address in complex network environments. The system will obtain the IP address again once there is another DHCP server detected or you can configure your device IP address via Network Setup at Web Admin. • How do I reset the APG to the factory setting? Press the reset button and press the power button for 20 seconds to reset to factory settings. • What do I do if I'm not redirected to the APG's web page automatically? 1. Make sure you have connected to the APG sucessfully. 2. Make sure your IP address is configured as Obtain an IP address automatically or you have entered the proper IP address. 3.
