This is for Luxul AP’s that are not connected to a Luxul Controller and must be on the same firmware as the backup restoring from: 

  • First, you will need a Laptop with an Ethernet Connection
  • Second, unplug the AP from the Router, however continue to use the POE (Power Over Ethernet) to keep powering the AP.
  • Third, change your IP address on your Laptop to something in the range of the AP, but not the same address as the AP. (192.168.0.5)
    • Follow the instructions below to change your Laptops IP Address:

To change the Laptops IP address in Windows, you’ll need to open the “Network Connections” window. Hit Windows+R, type “ncpa.cpl” into the Run box, and then hit Enter.

In the “Network Connections” window, right-click the adapter for which you want to set a static IP address, and then select the “Properties” command.

In the properties window for the adapter, select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and then click the “Properties” button.

Select the “Use the following IP address” option, and then type in the IP Address and Subnet Mask, that will be used to connect directly to your AP.

IP:

  • 192.168.0.5

Sub Mask:

  • 255.255.255.0

Keep everything else blank.

When you’re ready, click the “OK” button.

And then close out of the network adapter’s properties window.

  • Fourth, turn off your Wi-Fi on your Laptop.
  • Fifth, plug the AP directly into your laptop and wait (1) minute.
  • Sixth, open a web browser and type in 192.168.0.10.
  • Seventh, the login screen should appear and this is where you will enter the login information:
    • User:                 admin
    • Password:        admin
  • From the main screen, go to Administration and then select Backup and Restore.

 

  • Upload your Backup File here. The file needs to be a .lxc file.
  • Once the AP reboots, plug the network line back into the Luxul Router and reconnect to your Wi-Fi.
    • Your Wi-Fi should be back to the backup setting you have originally backed up after initial setup.

When your network is completely back and your custom configurations are set, you will need to set your Ethernet connection back to DHCP.

To change the Laptops IP address in Windows back to DHCP, you’ll need to open the “Network Connections” window. Hit Windows+R, type “ncpa.cpl” into the Run box, and then hit Enter.
