Re: How to get a consolidated view of all connections on HAP AC?

I'd like to know if it's wireless (2.4 or 5Ghz would be nice) or wired. I'd like the mac, the IP, how long it's been connected, whether it's reserved, static, or dhcp set, how long the lease is left.

Re: How to get a consolidated view of all connections on HAP AC?

Miracle, I tried Bridge > host - looks good - how do I get the IP's as well? Device names that are known would be good as well. Thanks! XVO IP>ARP - pretty good - I can work with this. Still missing connection type, device name if know Is there any way to add more information to the tables? I guess ...

Re: How to get a consolidated view of all connections on HAP AC?

Hi XVO,
Thanks - Yes, they are all there.
That's not exactly what I was looking for. I went to the page. Above the list of connections, it said I had 400+ connections.
If I scroll down they are all there. It's not a consolidated look. Keep the good ideas coming. I appreciate it.
Cheers!

Difference in 6db and 12db Groove antenna

Hi, I'm using a Metal Groove AC52 happily. I have both a 6db and 12db gain antenna available. I'm having to go about 800 ft to get a -70db signal with the 6db antenna. The vertical alignment is pretty good between the antennas. How much improvement in signal could I expect with the 12db gain antenna...

Best advice for two internet inputs (LTE & WiFi) on boat

Hi, I have a HAP AC router and Groove Metal as a boat WiFi access point. I'm trying to get the best internet signal in my boat. I have successfully made the connection using ether5 as the WAN connection - made that decision so I could use the POE. I think I'm going to add an alternate LTE input (Net...

Re: Another Boater looking to use groove metal and HAP AC with WAN on Ether5

Hi Ammo, Thanks for the info. I'm still not where I want to be. I can get the system up and working by putting the POE on ether1 and connecting it to the AP. I left my AP alone as it was working. So now Ive made the switch - ether5 is hooked to the AP. IP on AP was left at default. I reset my router...

Re: Another Boater looking to use groove metal and HAP AC with WAN on Ether5

Another Boater looking to use groove metal and HAP AC with WAN on Ether5

Hi, I've just setup my new metal 52 AP and HAP AC router on my boat/home. My goal is marina internet. I've tried several things to get the WAN set to ether5 where I have POE. Each time I've had issues. Bottom line is I'd like to understand how to set the router up to make ether1 a bridged port and e...

Re: In over my head

Hi All, This is my first post. Over my head's question was right in line with what I was looking for. I got my router/groove working on ether5 as well. Pamela mentioned that you could have the groove autoscan both 2 and 5 gh networks. "The Groove can be set up to scan both 2 & 5 ghz signals by using...
