Hardware Introduction
The NPort W2150A models have one serial port; the NPort W2250A
models have two serial ports. Both models support RS-232/422/485
operation with DB9 connectors and include one 10/100M Ethernet port.

Pull-High/Low Resistors and Terminal Resistor for
RS-422/485
You may need to set the
pull-high/low resistors when
termination resistors are used in
certain RS-422 or RS-485
environments.

NOTE
Do not use the 1 kΩ setting while in RS-232 mode. Doing so will
degrade the RS-232 signals and reduce the effective
communication distance.

First-Time Hardware Installation
STEP 1:
After removing the NPort W2150A/W2250A from the box, use
a crossover Ethernet cable to connect the NPort’s RJ45
Ethernet port directly to your computer’s Ethernet port.
STEP 2:
Attach the power adapter to the NPort and then plug the
adapter into an electrical outlet.
STEP 3:
Configure the NPort W2150A/W2250A through the Ethernet
port. See the next section on how to install software.
NOTE
You must connect the Ethernet cable first before powering up
your NPort
Software Installation Information
Insert the Documentation and software CD into your PC. A window should
open with several options displayed:
•
•
•
Click [Install COM Driver] and follow the on-screen instructions to
install the COM drivers.
Click [Documents] and select NPort W2150A/W2250A Series
User’s Manual to view the user’s manual.
Click [Install UTILITY] and follow the on-screen instructions to
install the NPort Search Utility. This utility can be used to search for
NPort W2150A/W2250A units on the network.
Setting the IP Address
The factory default IP settings are assigned as follows:
LAN: Static; IP = 192.168.126.254; netmask = 255.255.255.0
WLAN: Static; IP = 192.168.127.254; netmask = 255.255.255.0
If the NPort is configured for DHCP, but the DHCP server cannot be found,
then the NPort will use the factory default IP settings.
NOTE
If you have forgotten the NPort’s IP address, use the NPort
Search Utility from your PC to locate the NPort. After searching
the LAN for NPort units, the NPort Search Utility will display the IP
address of each unit.
NOTE
Ethernet Bridge Disabled (default): Only one network
interface can be active at a time. If the Ethernet link is active, the
WLAN will be inactive. If the WLAN is active, the Ethernet link will
be inactive.
Ethernet Bridge Enabled: The LAN and WLAN will both be
active. Go to the web console, find the network settings page,
and set Ethernet Bridge to Enabled.
Open the web console to make configuration changes as follows:
STEP 1:
Open your web browser.
STEP 2:
In the address bar, enter 192.168.126.254 (the default IP
-5-
address).
STEP 3:
The server will ask for the username and password before you
log in. To configure the device server, you may use the default
user/default password "admin"/"moxa" to log in the web
console.
STEP 4:
For first-time use, click the Wizard in the left navigation panel.
The wizard will prompt you to configure the IP address, SSID,
and security mode. For other settings, use the factory defaults
or modify the settings for your application.
