Hi Domenico,

    You can operate your single R300 AP in Solo/Standalone mode.  Look for the AP's
MAC address in your DHCP lease table, to find the IP address to use to configure the
AP.  The default uid/pw for HTTP or SSH is 'admin' and 'sp-admin'.

    Download and read the Solo AP User guide from this Support site URL:
https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/1137-zoneflex-indoor-ap-104-0-user-guide

    The R300 AP details begin on page 42. Configuring wireless settings for an SSID on
2.4g and 5g radios, starts on page 99.  Good luck and best regards.

first of all get into the settings...   https://192.168.1.217/index.asp

default username:
super
password:
sp-admin


i looked through the pdf that was linked above, long story short, and edited:

1.
Go to Configuration > Radio 2.4G and or Radio 5G.

The Configuration >Radio 2.4g > "Common" tab appears.

2.
Click "Wireless1" tab to configure the first 2.4g wireless signal. The selected
Configuration > Radio 2.4g > Wireless # (WLAN number) page appears. (1-8 tabs available)

(for a 5g wireless signal repeat the above process in the "radio 5g" tab starting at the "wireless9" tab.)

3.
edit wireless network name, and ssid name to whatever you want. it may help if you add "_EXT" to the end for identifying which ones are the extended signals

for "Wireless Availability?" click the "Enabled" bubble


4.

In the Encryption Method menu, select WPA. The basic set of WPA-specific encryption options appears on the page.

In WPA Authentication select the required WPA authentication type:

WPA+WPA2
allows both WPA and WPA2 devices to operate on the same WLAN.

5.
in "passphrase", enter desired wireless access password

6.

update settings


7. refresh your locally available networks, sign in with the passphrase on the network you created.

[my 5g signal took a while to show up, 2.4g signal showed up instantly, enjoy your network]

Hello colleagues, I have a question, I have a Po-e switch that feeds 3 ruckus R300, can I manage the users that connect to my AP from the dhcp router? I mean, I connect my 3 ruckus, what firmware do I use? To have them only as AP?
