How to configure AC750W/AC750GW as an Access Point

Introduction

This document describes how to configure AC750W/AC750GW as an Access Point on Network via an Ethernet cable.

Prerequisites

Requirements

The user has a router already and only wants to use UTT AC750W/AC750GW as a wireless access point.
 

Components Used

  • UTT AC750W or UTT AC750GW
  • Firmware Version: AC750Wv1.7.0-150602 and above

Network Diagram

 
Configuration
  1. Power on UTT AC750W, connect a PC to AC750W’s LAN Port via an Ethernet cable, as shown in Figure 1-1.
Figure 1-1
 
  1. Check the first router's LAN Gateway IP address.
If it isn't 192.168.1.1, just enter AC750W's Web Interface and go to Step 5.
If it is 192.168.1.1, change AC750W's LAN IP address to 192.168.1.2.  (Any IP address is ok, but it should not conflict with the LAN IP of the first router, 192.168.1.2 is merely an example.) Configure as follows:
Enter http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar to enter AC750W's Web interface as shown in Figure 1-2.
Figure 1-2
 
Select "Network > LAN", change 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.2, then click “Save, as shown in Figure 1-3.
Figure 1-3 
  1. Disable Local Area Connection on the PC, then enable Local Area Connection again as shown in Figure1-4.
Figure 1-4
 
 
  1. Enter http://192.168.1.2 in the address bar to enter AC750W's Web Interface again.
  1. Select Network > DHCP Server, disable DHCP Server, then click Save as shown in Figure 1-5.
Figure 1-5
 
  1. Connect AC750W’s LAN Port to the first router's LAN Port via another Ethernet cable, as shown in Figure 1-6.
Figure 1-6
 
Disable Local Area Connection on the PC, and enable Local Area Connection again, after the PC obtains an IP address from router's DHCP Server, the user shall be able to access the Internet.
 

Troubleshoot

1. Avoid DHCP conflict. One broadcast domain should have only one DHCP Server.  As an access point, the DHCP Server function of UTT AC750W should be disabled.
2. The user cannot use the same LAN Gateway IP address in the same broadcast domain. it's better to change the LAN IP address of the device working as an access point.
