Hi, hope somebody can help on this. Recently bought Ruckus R710 to use it as a router (instead of using shitty routers available at best buy)with my netgear modem. Opened package, made connections and followed Setup instructions and logged in to ruckus Admin Page and enabled 2.4 and 5g wireless networks, renamed SSIDs and enabled WPA as encryption and created security password. To be very specific, I enabled only one 2.4 network and one 5G network. Both of these networks by default were setup as Bridge to WAN and I kept them as it is. Saved and updated settings and then plugged the ethernet cable from my comcast netgear modem to the POE ethernet port of R710. The 2.4 and 5G lights on R710 lights up in amber and when I try to connect to ssid of 710 with any of my devices the led changes to green but none of my devices connect to the SSID of R710. Any idea what I am doing/did wrong?

Maybe start with Open Auth, and if it works, then add a WPA2-PSK?

I tried both the options. With WPA and open/unsecured. Same response while connecting to SSID. Any other steps?

If bridge to WAN is set then the AP isn't operating as a router so you will have no DHCP server to issue IPs.

Itonly shows 4 settings: 1. Bridge to WAN (this is the default setting) Others are 2. Isolated, 3. Local Subnet NAT and Route to WAN 4. Bridge to L2TP Tunnel

You use option3. The procedure is as follows:
:
1. Go to Configuration --> Local Subnets page
2. Create a new subnet with local and starting IP addresses for LAN
3. Specify how many DHCP users are allowed to receive an IP
4. Assign this newly created subnet to the WLAN. This is done on the Configuration --> Wireless --> Specific SSID tab. Choose the "Local Subnet NAT and Route to WAN" option for Packet Forward setting. Choose the subnet that was created in the previous step for the "Local Subnet" setting.
5. From here on, clients connecting to this particular SSID will receive an IP from the AP's subnet.
