Setting up Ruckus and at&t gateway together with same SSID

  • Updated 2 months ago
I have a Lennar home with Ruckus r510 and ICX 7150 C12P. I am using it's SSID for all my wi-fi needs. I have internet through at&t and the gateway is also broadcasting a wi-fi SSID that is different than the Ruckus AP. Can I turn the wi-fi off on my gateway? Is this the correct configuration? I want the at&t gateway to have the same SSID so I can get extended coverage...how do I set it up? Does my at&t gateway need to be the primary wi-fi and Ruckus be the bridge? or vice-versa? Also, when the Amazon guy activated the smart home he did not leave any user name and password to get into the Ruckus admin settings. I can get to the unleashed login page but the default user name super/sp-admin does not work. Please help!!!

Password & Usernames:
I would contact AMZN or the builder, let them know the tech neglected to give you the admin/pass for the system
ATT Router:
I recommend turning off the ATT Router's Wi-Fi, or only broadcasting a simple management WI-Fi should you need to jump in and do some administration. Power level control, intelligence, interference mitigation, and roaming cohesiveness is something the ATT unit will not participate in.

I had a similair issue with access to Ruckus unleashed and Lennar shared that the username was admin and the password was Ruckus!   Obviously you should change them once you log in

Is there any way to add a. 3rd party wifi router as an extender to the Ruckus R510 AP? I looked everywhere in the settings but could not find any place to do so. Appreciate your quick responses. Also, my at7t is a 1 Gbps connection but I don't see speeds more than 250 mpbs even when I am under the R510 AP. Any suggestions?

you should not add a 3rd party accesspoint.
use a ruckus accesspoint to extend your range.
you ca also take a R320

Hi Ravindra,

Login the AP and ensure that the AP has internet. (which should be getting from the at&t device)
You can verify it under Dashboard >> Internet >> You should see that there should be an IP under DNS and the "Internet" should show as "Connected".

If the Internet is not connected, then ensure the AP should be getting the IP address from at&t (which I believe is the gateway for your network and serving as DHCP server).
