Internet Speed ​​Test Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP

Internet Speed ​​Test Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP

I found Ruckus ZoneFlex R300 AP at a friend’s desk and since I had some free time, I immediately gave it a try.

Because I couldn’t find PoE, I used Linksys’ 12V adapter and when it turned on it looked like the picture above. Here’s a picture of the router, similar to the Ruckus Zonflex R310 but slightly smaller. If we look from the top position, the writing will be inversely proportional, because it has been designed to be installed on the roof, so that the writing position becomes normal when seen from below.



For the following topology, where DHCP is from Mikrotik and my test results with a laptop from a router where I get a bandwidth of about 80 Mbps for download and 90 Mbps for upload. I immediately tried this device.



1. DHCP IP from Mikrotik to this AP is, so I typed it directly in the browser until the following image appears, click Advanced – Accept the Risk and Continue.



2. Because I don’t know the login access, so I reset the AP, just press the Reset button for about 5-10 seconds in the on position and the AP will be like the first picture above. Login with super username and password sp-admin.


3. If you see red writing at the bottom, it looks like this AP was previously connected to the Ruckus Controller because there is no wireless configuration in the Configuration menu. Here’s another view on the Status menu.



4. Below is the display on the Configuration menu, there are DCHP, Static IP and PPPoE configurations for connecting to the internet.



5. Here’s what the Maintenance menu looks like, I tried upgrading from the FTP and Web options, the results fail, either because the AP has been discontinued or something else. I will look for the Local option later.



6. The following is the display on the Administration menu, there are diagnostics for Ping and Traceroute.



7. Continuing from step 5, after I searched here and downloaded it here, I finally managed to make this AP a standalone AP.



8. There are some changes as shown below and of course the Configuration menu has appeared wireless configuration.



9. To enable wireless on a 2.4G Radio or 5G Radio, simply select Enabled in Wireless Availability, then fill in the SSID and select the desired Encyrption Method and WPA configuration and click Update Settings.



Note: on 5G Radio, if I select SmartSelect Channel, the wireless on my laptop and cellphone doesn’t recognize the SSID name and after I try to change to Channel 149, it can only be detected and after I change it back to SmartSelect, it can be recognized again, whether there is bugs or something else.

10. Here are the results of testing on 2.4G Radio and 5G Radio on my laptop and cellphone, to maximize the available bandwidth, it is better to use 40 Mhz Channel Width in each Radio configuration.

Thank you



Ruckus ZoneFlex 7341 AP Internet Speed Test

Ruckus ZoneFlex 7341 AP Internet Speed Test

This article is a continuation of the previous article that can be read here.

The device that I am trying now is the Ruckus ZoneFlex 7341 AP (Single-band, 2.4GHz, 11n), because this product has been discontinued, so there is no description that I can share, but can be searched on the internet about that.

For the topology as follows :

There are not many choices that can be changed for testing from this device.

Following are the test results from 4 devices :

Laptop Processor / RAM Wifi (Mbps) Wireless
Lokal (Mbps) Internasional (Mbps)
Download Upload Download Upload
Asus X455LJ i3 5005U / 8 GB 65 37 36 26 41
HP 240 G6 i5 7200U / 8 GB 65 39 35 32 37
Asus TP201S N3710 / 4 GB 150 7 37 6 28
HP Oppo F7 65 37 45 29 43

The following is an illustration of the test :



The conclusion is :

The results of this test are not much different from the previous TP-Link device. But the most surprising is the result for the Asus TP201S, which results are very unreasonable. Technically I don’t know that yet, even though the laptop has been restarted many times but the results are more or less the same and sometimes even worse, but if you try to use another wireless, the results are better.


Basic Configuration of Ruckus Zoneflex R310 AP

Basic Configuration of Ruckus Zoneflex R310 AP

This is the first Ruckus device that I tried, even though it’s not new, but there’s no harm in learning about the device. Because I do not know the login password to the device, then I just reset it and the method is quite easy, press the reset button next to the LAN port for about 5 – 10 seconds when the device is on and wait until the indicator light turns off and on again, the indication is successfully reset is only PWR and CTL lights on, because the default wireless position is disabled.

Next is the initial configuration guide :

  1. The default IP address is, but because I installed it on the router, I access it using the IP obtained from the router, which is

  1. If it appears as shown above, click Advanced – Add Exception – Confirm Security Exception and the result will be as shown below :

  1. I just changed the Country Code to Indonesia, then click Next. Because I have a main router that has given DCHP to this AP, then I don’t change the configuration, click Next to continue.

  1. I also do not change the SSID and provide a password, it will be configured later, click Next.

  1. The password must be changed directly, while for Password Recovery I don’t checklist, click Next again.

  1. Following the results of the Review of the above process, click Finish and OK to restart the device.



Here’s the next configuration :

  1. Log in with the user and password that was set before, then click Unleash.

  1. I will not register this device, for that I choose Skip and Yes, Skip.

  1. Looks like the following picture Internet status has been connected (Connected) because indeed the main router has been connected to the Internet.

  1. I will first change the SSID that was created previously, click WiFi Networks and select Ruckus-Wireless 1 then click Edit.

  1. Because this AP has 2 frequencies, namely 2.4G and 5G, so to make it easier, I will give the name FIrfani 2.4 G which indicates operating at the 2.4G frequency as shown below. To provide a password, select WPA2 in the Encryption Method and enter the desired password, then OK.

Note: the 2.4G indicator will turn on Orange if it is active and change to Green if a device is connected.

  1. Click Create to create a new SSID, for the SSID I name FIrfani 5 G which works at a frequency of 5 Ghz.

Note: the 5G indicator will turn on Orange if it is active and change to Green if a device is connected.

  1. I will connect the 2 SSIDs from different devices. For the 5 Ghz frequency, not all devices support it, for that if the device does not find a 5G FIrfani SSID, then the device does not support it. But on the 2 devices that I tried, both of them supported the 5 Ghz frequency.

Oh yeah, the 2.4G and 5G indicator will change color to Green if there is a device connected.



  1. The following results from the wireless and client side.

  1. While there isn’t much information that I can provide on the Admin & Services menu, so I only share the appearance like this :

That is the temporary information that I can convey, for the speed test I made in a different article.
