Connect a Wired or WiFi Device to the Access Point’s
Network After Installation
After you install the access point in your network (see Set Up and Connect the Access Point to Your Router
or DHCP Server on page 11), you can connect a device to the access point’s LAN through an Ethernet
cable or to the access point’s WiFi network over a WiFi connection.
If your device is set up to use a static IP address, change the settings of your device
so that it uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), which enables the device
to receive an IP address from the router or network to which the access point is
connected.
Note

You can connect a computer or other LAN device to the access point using an Ethernet cable and join the
