TENDA W9 ACCESS POINTS
My Tenda W9 AP instructions tell me to set the IP address of my laptop, which is plugged into my fully web-connected and operating Netgear switch, so that I can then go on to reconfigure the APs. They say this is to “avoid IP address conflicts”. When I do this, the laptop loses its internet connection, and it cannot log into the UI of the AP (192.168.0.254). Is there something else I need to do? My security cameras have a fixed IP address so maybe this is affecting things? Any help would be much appreciated – no IT experts are doing home visits during the UK’s lockdown 3.0!
