WAC 124

I set up my WAC 124 with a cat5 cable and it worked fine.

When I tried to set it up in my log cabin with a cat6 from my router, the Ethernet ports show amber and green on the router side, but the WAC doesn’t have any internet. And I can’t connect to the WiFi to troubleshoot the WAC either. Help!

   "with a cat5 cable" connected between what and what?  (Hint: If a
device has different types of Ethernet ports, then "connected to device"
is not enough detail.)

   If it works with Cable-A, and fails with Cable-B, then I know what
I'd suspect.

   _Which_ "the Ethernet ports"?  How many are involved with the WAC124?

   "can't" is not a useful problem description. It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

 

   Regarding the WAC124, you might find more expertise in a more
appropriate forum:

Re: WAC 124

Sorry I wasn’t clear. I used Cat5 cable to connect between the router and WAC 125 first.

The internet Ethernet port on the router had the green and yellow lights.

When I said I can’t access the WAC24, I meant logging into routerlogin .net using the local login.

@Sbal,

 

When I said I can’t access the WAC24, I meant logging into routerlogin .net using the local login.

Have you tried using the IP address of the WAC124 to access its web-GUI?  

 

Let us try this.  Connect a PC hardwired to the WAC124 then try to access its web-GUI using its IP address.  Also, check if you will get replies when you ping the IP address of the WAC124. 

 

 

Regards,
