I installed a RB260GSP switch in my attic to feed a NVR and an AP (Ubiquiti).
The switch is connected to an Ubiquiti switch via port 1, and it worked fine straight out of the box.
However, I am unable to access the switch while it's connected.
I thought I could connect to the switch directly via an ethernet cable, as per Mikrotik instructions, and change it's default IP to something like 192.168.1.xx, so I would be able to log into it without directly connecting to it.
I changed my laptop's IP to static 192.168.88.2, and was able to log into the switch, but as soon as I tried to change switch IP to 192168.1.58, I lost connection.
I also was unable to update the SW. I tried to connect the switch to my wired network via port 5, while connected to my laptop via port 1, but the upgrade failed (a few times).
Please, tell me what I am doing wrong.
I'd like to know if it is necessary to update the switch (its SW is from 2017), and if it is possible to change the IP to 192.168.1.xx;
What exactly (steps?) would I need to do to update the switch and to change the IP (if possible).
It's working fine so I guess I can leave it alone as well, but still would like to know the answers to the questions above.
thanks a lot.
