Page 1 Beginner’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 Nanostation 1a) Windows 1b) Mac OS X 2) Program Nanostation as receiver (station) and router 3) Choose and connect to a WIFI signal Windows XP Open Start / Control panel / Network Connections.

Right click on Local Area Connection and select Properties : • If you do not need to share files or a printer on your local network you should disable (un-tick) “Client...” and “File and...” for added security.

There should be 2 LEDs lit on the Nanostation (power + network cable). • Go to page 5. • Fill in as pictured here: We’re entering a static (fixed) IP address This will be your computer’s IP * This is always so This is the IP of the Nano Nano IP here too (The Nano will be acting as a DNS server) * * Note: The last number can be any number from 1 to 254 except 20 which is taken.
