Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 5.0.0 Build 20200918 Rel. 58628

Hi,

 

I've recently registered for a Cloud based controller and I want to add my EAP in it. It asks for the serial number of the device, however I've lost the original box including its contents and the serial number is not printed at the back of the device. Is there any way to retrieve the serial number? or I will not be able to register it?

 

Thanks.

The unit will report its SN via its web management interface when managed...bit ironic.  Apparently the standalone GUI for the AP does not, i just checked the emulator here:

My suggestion is to setup a temp windows based Omada controller on a laptop and adopt this AP.  Once you do, its SN will be reported via the controller:

Worth noting that I also found the serial number inside the AP latch (under the device Ethernet Port)
