Page 1Beginner’s SETUP GUIDE for NANOSTATION-2 as receiver and other Ubiquity devices using AirOS firmware V3.6 (Windows/MacOS)This guide is primarily intended for mobile users(boaters, campers and truckers) who often change access points. Fixed users can also use it, although there might be other more suitable configurations for them.Make sure the Nanostation 2 (Nano for short) is connected to your computer’s network card with network cables, via the power injector (supplied with 12V either from the included wall-wart or another 12VDC source). There should then be at least one LED lit on the back of the Nanostation. On the original Nanostation shipping box, find and write down the default IP address (we assume:192.168.1.20), the user name and password (should both be “ubnt”). Do not loose this information! 1) Set your computer to communicate with Nanostation1a) Windows1b) Mac OS X2) Program Nanostation as receiver (station) and router3) Choose and connect to a WIFI signalWindows XP• Open Start/ Control panel/ Network Connections.• Or in Classic Start menu: Start/ Settings/ Control panel/ Network Connections.Windows Vista• Open Start, right-click on Networkand then Properties(or Start/Control Panel).• Double click Network and Sharing Center, click Manage network connections.Network Connectionswindow will appear:Windows 7• Open the Startorb, click on Control Panel,• Click View Network Status and Tasks, then Change adapter settings:1a
