Ruckus ICX 7150 & R510

  • Updated 4 weeks ago

I just moved into a new home by Lennar and they have 1 ICX 7150 and 2 r510s installed in the house. I have ATT Fiber, ATT provides a modem/router which connects to the ICX 7150 and the R510s connects to the ICX 7150 via POE. In their set up they have all of the devices set up as an AP (According to ruckus unleashed). Shouldn't the ICX 7150 be set up as a switch and not an AP?

If the ICX 7150 is indeed suppose to be set as a switch how do I do this? Will I need to reset the whole thing?

Also when ATT installed their modem, they disconnected a commscope bos-mn-1602. Is this important?

Can you upload a photo of your unleashed setup showing the switch IDENTIFYING as an AP? I don't use the switch with Unleashed, it hadn't occurred to me to try! The BOS-MN appears to be an amplifier of sorts for Coax connections, I don't think you need it if your "Fiber" hands off to your switch directly as ethernet.

The one labeled Closet is the ICX Switch

This is the proper setup with ATT. The ICX 7150 is only doing layer 2 switching and providing POE+ power to the connected R510's and possibly your doorbell. DHCP & NAT are coming from your ATT router and them naming the ICX as an AP is just an internal designation stating that it is performing only layer 2 functionality. So sounds like you are up, running and ready to enjoy your system!

The one labeled Closet is the ICX Switch. This looks correct to you?

That picture shows that you have 3 R510 APs in your home, so one is not an ICX 7150 switch.

Damn, I feel hella dumb. I assumed that it was the switch because I thought there was only 2 APs(I found the third on in the garage area). In the unleashed GUI, the switch is not shown in the switch section. Is this correct?

The ICX 7150 Will justo forward traffico AND provide power to the APs which aré the wireless devices, technically Is not posible to set the switch as an AP.
Si the módem Will work as the router for the home setup.

With default setings it should work correctly, unless the APs aré not getting power.
