Unleashed R310 move to remote locations

Can I setup one R310 unleashed with the settings I want then allow 7 others to obtain the settings and then move them to remote locations without connectivity back to the Master? Will they function ok? Could I then further configure them to not try to find that master and be their own master?

Hi Lin,
It depends..., but please describe your intended deployment further for the best answer.

If you have 8 Unleashed APs in a network now, they all have WLAN details and the same
version of firmware.  And they all have IPs in the same VLAN/subnet with the same default
gateway address too.  You could also configure a specific Mgt IP address, that they would
all know to use for Master AP identification too.

If you separate this network into smaller pieces, you will need a router default gateway and
use the same IP address/netmask... it could be tricky.

Unleashed is designed to be simple to setup, but you need to be on the defaulted AP's
Configure.Me-XXYYZZ wireless SSID to configure the first AP, which sets up the network
and becomes your initial Master AP.

But perhaps if you know your remote network IP subnet/mask and def-gw, you might be
able to configure your Unleashed AP with a static IP address (outside any DHCP scope
used there), that you could connect to and configure before sending to the remote site?

Thanks. I will try the static IPs outside the DHCP scope.
