How to Configure Pharos Device, 's free Pharos Control allows users to easily manage unlimited Pharos products for complete, unhindered network scalability. Batch management helps simultaneously configure and manage multiple , giving administrators an efficient, cost-effective and centralized management platform for an optimized network.

  Definition: In AP mode, the device acts as a central hub and provides wireless access point for wireless clients.

Take CPE as an example.

Access web management page of CPE

Please follow this link to access the web interface of CPE.

Note:CPE210 is a 2.4GHz device which can only broadcast 2.4GHz wireless network;CPE510 is a 5GHz device which can only broadcast 5GHz wireless network.Here we take CPE510 as example in this article.

Run Quick Setup

Step 1:

Go to Quick Setup-> Choose “Access Point” > Click Next

Step 2:

The default IP Address of CPE is 192.168.0.254,we can change it to other IP addresses to fit in the main router's network.For example,if the main modem/router's IP Address is 192.168.1.1,we can set up the CPE510 as 192.168.1.* (*=2~254)Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 .

It is also fine to leave it as the default value if you are not sure about the main router's IP address,then click Next.

Relocate the CPE

You may now unplug the computer from the LAN port of the PoE adapter,and connect the wired network(internet modem/router) into the LAN port.

Final Computer Setup Reversion(For  OS)

We need change the IP settings back on the computer after the configuration.

Please find Local Area Connection/Ethernet on the computer, if you cannot remember the procedure, please refer to the FAQ again.
