Model: EAP620 HD
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.04

Bought this new device.

Connected to my switch.

Installed Omada Controller for Windows.

 

Can not make settings.

Eap and Controller on 192 168 2.x network

 

Internet works but all the information of this screen is wrong.

How to define them to see correct icons and informations.

 

Internet Capacity is 100mbit MAN, Gateway is Fortigate, Switches is one and L1, no clients (there is no ssid configured for now)

 

 

Thanks.

Hey


Certainly, not a problem

 

The Omada SDN is not just a WiFi controller but rather a full SDN solution, while it is possible to just use the controller to just manage the WiFi for you, as you have only one EAP its unlikely to be any real benefit for you.

 

The best thing to do would be forget the EAP from the controller, reset the EAP and log into it via the IP address.  From there you should be able to configure everything you require

 

There is very little if any difference / change in functionality between running the device in standalone mode vs controller mode.

 

However if you wish to just use the controller to set WiFi then that is perfectly acceptable also :)

Hey

 

The SDN controller software you have installed is for management of Router, Switch and EAPs in one SDN solution.  

 

Given your Gateway (router) and switch are not Omada SDN devices you will not be able to control them via the controller.  This is the reason you cannot configure the WAN speed, LAN setting, stats not displaying etc.. 

 

Honestly, if I was in your scenario I would not be setting up a controller for just the EAP.  You would be better running the EAP you have in standalone mode and manually changing the IP addresss as required.

 

Below is a screenshot of my setup with the following

TL-R605 (Gateway)

TL-SF2008P (Switch)

2x EAP245s (APs)

OC200 (Controller)

 

As these are all TP Omada SDN devices, all stats are reporting in as expected.  

 

Sadly I am not aware of any SDN or Controller software that can manage devices from multiple vendors centrally, controllers are all specific to one vendor.

Thank you for explanation @Philbert 

Will try as you explained standalone mode. Is there any handicaps for this device's capability between these modes?

Using a controller software for an AP is a habbit from another well-known brand APs. Thanks.
