Ruijie RG-AP720-L MACC Configuration

Ruijie RG-AP720-L MACC Configuration

The following article is a continuation of this article. Previously I thanked mas Imam from Ruijie for providing information in the comments column so that I could continue writing for Ruijie.

Alhamdulillah, I can get Ruijie again and it has been set by mas Bayu in MACC mode which is also connected to his Cloud account. Because I want to try Cloud, he must first delete the Serial Number (SN) so that later I can configure it on my Cloud account.

Here’s the guide :

  1. I immediately created a Cloud account here and the initial appearance is as follows :

  1. I select Sign up, then fill in the required data in the order, for the Get Secuity Code to be sent via email. After clicking Sign up, you will immediately log in to the Cloud Dashboard.

  1. Following the initial appearance.

  1. To add a device, select Device – Access Point, on the AP List select Add AP – Add a Device, enter the AP serial number and for Alias ​​it can be adjusted, in this case I fill in the LAB, then click OK, the result will look like the following :

 

 

  1. For the AP configuration, because it is already connected to the Cloud, it can be changed immediately as if accessing it locally, only different views. Select CONFIGURATION – WIRELESS – Basic.

  1. Select Edit on the Action tab, I will change the SSID, only radio frequency to 2.4 Ghz and wifi password.

  1. To add an SSID, click the + sign, for the frequency I set 5 Ghz to make it easier to distinguish. I can’t directly click Save, I have to fill in the login password first to the AP (to log in from the local side), the password can be compared to the previous one or made new.

  1. On the Radio tab, it is used to enable and disable the frequency used, so if there is a frequency that is turned off, the SSID that uses it will not be recognized.

  1. To view the log, select MAINTENANCE, can choose the log model that will be seen in the LOGS.

  1. There is also a feature for firmware upgrades, which when I tried it was already using the latest version.

 

 

A little more info for the indicator on Ruijie that I got from here.

If I notice there are some features that don’t seem to be on the Cloud if I access them locally or maybe there are different sentences that I don’t understand, like :

  1. Blacklist and Whitelist features.

  1. DFS feature.

  1. Port Mapping Feature.

  1. Alarm Setting.

If I check the menu, I get more, but as I mentioned above, maybe I don’t really understand the feature.

There is something strange, yes, it is a very strange, that is in Restore Factory Settings, I have local access and click Restore Factory Settings and the results are back to normal but strangely on the Cloud is still monitored Online with a fixed configuration (SSID still exists), as if nothing has changed.

I tried logging out and re-logged the results are still the same, indeed the AP is still connected to the Internet. My wireless scanning was not detected and sim salabim, suddenly the configuration changed as before (Cloud). Is this the Config Synced Status?

Curious ? I tried resetting again, this time faster than the initial one or it was not reset, it only took about 5 minutes from restart until it became solid blue, and after I logged in, it was immediately like a Cloud configuration.

I am still curious too, after I restored the third time, I installed the router to get DHCP but the Internet is disabled, and after restarting it only reaches the orange indicator and the following login page automatically shows the following image :

I tried logging out and successfully logged in with the default password, namely admin. I tried to activate the Internet again and the result was, 1 minute after connecting the indicator from the orange solid to flashing yellow then solid yellow and immediately changed again to flashing red and after 3 minutes it became solid blue.

If I Torch, the AP leads to IP 35,197,150,240, and like the results above, the AP is directly synchronized with the Cloud.

From here I can conclude that APs that have used the MACC method, as long as they are not deleted the serial number in the Cloud database will still synchronize when the local AP device is connected to the Internet.

To delete a registered AP, you can see it in the following picture :

Maybe just until here first inform me what I gave, for testing the internet speed I made in a different article that can be read here. Thanks.

 

Ruijie RG-AP720-L Basic Configuration

Ruijie RG-AP720-L Basic Configuration

Ruijie hmmm the brand that I just heard for Access Point (AP) devices that will be discussed this time and as usual, this time testing is also very short because it wants to be installed at the customer’s place, hehehe. The items I get are still in new condition so you can see the contents of the box.

 

 

This AP has a default IP that is 192.168.110.1 with the same username and password, which is admin. But when I tried I did not use the IP, because in general the AP only continued the connection from the main device that gave the DHCP IP, so I tried directly from the DHCP IP that was obtained by the IP.

When opening the home page, information will appear that this device can be accessed by more than 360 browsers and after logging in there will be 3 choices, namely, Fit AP, Fat AP and macc which for topology can be seen from the available images. At first I was confused, because Fit AP was selected by default, but no configuration was found, then I changed to Fat AP and was even more confused because the AP became inaccessible and did not get a DHCP IP after the reboot process. I tried rebooting the Microtic and the AP was the same result.

 

 

Finally, I tried to reset the AP (press the Reset button for about 10 seconds in the lit position until the LED blinks green) and this time I tried to equalize the IP block with the AP. After logging in and reappearing the mode page, again I chose Fat AP and the same thing happened again above, but before I had run Ping to IP 192.168.110.1 to confirm the connection, the result after rebooting became RTO, again I tried pairing it directly from Mikrotik and then get a DHCP IP again, is this a bug ? (*)

 

 

Topology :

Internet <–> router (DHCP) <–> Ruijie RG-AP720-L

Here’s the configuration of Ruijie RG-AP720-L :

  1. After successfully logging in with the DHCP IP, Quick Settings will appear to select the AP mode to be used, because getting the internet from the main router then I choose the following mode then Next :

AP Working Mode : AP Access Mode

Internet Connection Type : DHCP

  1. Input the desired SSID and password, then click Finish.

Until this step the AP should be able to connect directly to the Internet and my current position is to replace the old AP device to Ruijie’s AP, of course the SSID and password are equated with the old AP configuration, so if you see the Dashboard, it will automatically connect the device that has been connected to the AP long time ago.

  1. On the tab Monitor – User Info we can see the details of the devices connected with the following info :
  • Channel (Radio) : to see the wireless frequency used (2.4 or 5).
  • Action : limit bandwidth or block a device.

  1. To add and change SSID and wireless channels, can be set in Network – Wifi / WLAN.

Attached to a few pages on the AP, I did not take all the pages, only a few of which I found important.

(*) After a few days, I get an AP for testing again, but this time after rebooting, I can successfully log back into the 192.168.110.1 IP.

 

 

First of all, I apologize and thank the commenters, but due to server changes, I didn’t back up this page but re-created it, so I made a “screen shot” only comment. Thank you.
