  • Updated 4 years ago
i recently came into ownership of a 7363, just the unit itself. ive found the quick setup guide online and under system reqs for setup says basically a pc must be used.

ive got a mac, and old one at that (g5 dual 1.8g powerpc based... dinosaur). can anyone assist me with this?

You just need an SSH client (telnet will not work). But I leave that to you - that is an old beast. search "macos" instead of "osx" or "macosx" will probably give the best results.

Sorry, I'm starting to do this so often with SSH I forget there's a web UI. So...you need as modern a web browser as you can get your hands on - my guess would be Firefox. From there it's pretty much as the quick-start specifies - set your Mac IP address to something in 192.168.0.x to pair up with the default IP on the AP after doing a hard reset. Also note that there are some OEM versions that have different IP and default credentials. So if you have one of those you may have a tough time

Right, I got that. But you have to connect to the un-configured AP with either a web browser or with SSH.

If she has a mac, and it's a laptop she likely already has everything you need. Use hers to configure it.
