Forgot IP address of 9160 Base Station

Applicable To


Resolution / Answer

Test Default IP or use DHCP server to assign an IP:
AP will continue to use its default Static IP Address ( until you re-assign it a new static IP address (and specify a static IP addressing policy) or until a DHCP server is
brought online.

If both of the above does not work, they would have to console to the AP using RS232 cable.
The terminal is connected to the RS-232 port on the 9160 G2 .
This port is normally set to operate at 115,200 baud, 8 bits, 1 stop bit, no parity.
To comply with Part 15 of the FCC rules for a Class B computing device, only the cable supplied (P/N 19387) should be used.

The command to set IP on CLI is as below.

set management dhcp-status down 
Set management static-ip 
Set management static-mask

To Factory reset the CLI command is as below.


Without console cable, the only option would be to send it to depot to factory default the AP.
