Why can’t I log in to the web management utility of the Wavlink device
For the customers who can’t login the web interface of Wavlink, there are a number of steps you can take, please refer to the troubleshooting flow chart as below and follow the steps:
Step 1:Physical Connection:
The web-based management page of Wavlink devices is a built-in internal web server, it does not require internet access, but requires a physical connection between the Wavlink router and the device you are trying to log into its management page with.
For wired devices such as wired routers and switches, please plug your computer to the LAN port by cable and make sure the corresponding LAN LED Indicator lit up.
Some Wavlink Devices do not have LAN port, then please connect to its wireless network (Wavlink_XXXXXX) first to access its web interface.
Step 2: IP Information:
Your computer/device must have an IP from the Wavlink device to be able to access its web management page. Most of Wavlink devices have DHCP function enabled by default, which means it will assign IP Address to your computer/device automatically. Managed Switches and some Access Points do not have a DHCP Server function enabled, in this case, you will need set up a manual IP Address for your computer/device to access the management page.
