wms5316 and wndap350

New wms5316
New wndap350’s
Old wg302v2
The wms5316 detects the wg302 and does not detect the wndap350. The data sheet shows that all functions are available with the wndap350 and is manageable. I have reset all boxes to factory settings with the same result. The firmware on the 350’s is the only firmware available and also is shown to be compatible. What I need help with is how to access the wndap350’s via the wms5316, Since they are not discovered by the controller. Any real help would be appreciated.

Re: wms5316 and wndap350

the wndap350 probably has a mac-address that not being known by the wms. you should be able to add the OID (the first half of the mac-addres) manually to the wms.

Thanks that was the answer. I hope the next firmware version applies the fix.

this is not a bug.. new oids will come out all the time.. thats what that option is for. to manually add the new stuff if the wms doesnt know it yet.

WMS5316 and OUI discovery

Hi,
I work in Netgear Tech support.

We've had calls, where customers have a new WMS5316, and they can't discover the WNDAP350. This is a bug in Firmware.


For one WNDAP350, can you get the first 6 digits,
or 3 octets of their MAC address.

Go System , Advanced. >> Discovery OUI >> Organisational Unit Identifier>>
and add in the first 6 digits, in that field. 😮

WNDAP350-- MAC is E0-91-F5

Wms5316 --Firmware Version 2.1.2 -- 11th August 2011

Hello,
Rev 2.1.2 of firmware elimates the need to perform OUI discovery. 😮

If anyone is having trouble discovering APs on 2.1.2 firmware of the WMS, please see use the following workaround.


Auto Discovery:
Only scans the default subnet of 192.168.0.0/24

IP Discovery:
Web interface>> Configuration >> Access Point Discovery>>

Must be used for any other subnet, can only scan a /24 subnet at a time.
When scanned, and Access Points don’t show up, you have to click the Access Point Discovery.
