Preface  

Package 

Contents 

4ipnet EAP300 is a high-end 802.11n/a/b/g 

dual-band MIMO Access Point (AP) with the best 

price/ performance for business and industrial 

applications and is compliant with the latest 

industrial wireless security standards that are 

required in the tightly secured enterprise network 

environments. EAP300 makes the wireless 

communication fast, secure and easy. It supports 

business grade security such as 802.1X, and Wi-Fi 

Protected Access (WPA and WPA2). By pushing a 

purposely built button, the 4ipnet WES feature 

makes it easy to bridge wireless links of multiple 

EAP300s for forming wider wireless network 

coverage. EAP300 also features multiple ESSIDs 

with VLAN tags; one EAP300 can emulate up to 

eight Virtual APs, great for enterprise applications, 

such as separating the traffics of different 

departments using different ESSIDs. The PoE LAN 

port can receive power from Power over Ethernet 

(PoE) device. Its metal case is IP50 anti-dust 

compliant, which means that EAP300 is well suited 

to WLAN deployment in industrial environments.

Hardware Installation

 

 

Please follow the steps mentioned below to install the hardware of EAP300: 

1.  Place the EAP300 at a best location.

 

The best location for EAP300 is usually at the center of your wireless network. 

2.  Connect EAP300 to your network device. 

Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the LAN port of EAP300 and the other end of the cable to a 

switch, a router or a hub. EAP300 is then connected to your existing wired LAN network.   

3.  There are two ways to supply power over to EAP300. 

(a) 

Connect the DC power adapter to the EAP300 power socket.   

 

Please only use the power adapter supplied with the EAP300 package. Using a different power 
adapter may damage this system. 

(b) 

EAP300 LAN port is capable of transmitting DC currents. Connect an IEEE 802.3af-compliant PSE 

device, e.g. a PoE-switch, to the LAN port of EAP300 by the Ethernet cable. 

 

Now, the Hardware Installation is completed. 

 

To double verify the wired connection between EAP300 and your switch/router/hub, please 
check the LED status indication of these network devices.

Getting Started 

 

4ipnet EAP300 supports web-based configuration. Upon the completion of hardware installation, EAP300 can 

be configured through a PC by using its web browser such as Mozilla Firefox 2.0 or Internet Explorer version 

6.0 and above. 

The default values of LAN IP address and subnet mask of EAP300 are: 

IP Address: 192.168.1.1 

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0   

 

Steps:

 

1.  To access the web management interface, connect the administrator PC to the LAN port of EAP300 via 

an Ethernet cable. Then, set a static IP address on the same subnet mask as EAP300 in TCP/IP of your 

PC, such as the following example: 

IP Address: 192.168.1.100 

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0   

 

2.  Launch the web browser on your PC by entering the IP address of EAP300 (http://192.168.1.1) at the 

address field, and then press Enter.
