5 Go to the fodler tmp
cd /tmp
6 Decompress the file emw-1.4.2.tgz
tar xzvf emw-1.4.2.tgz
Two files emwadcast and emwadcast.ksp will appear
7 Find the LAN interface
ifconfig
“For example, enxb827eb6b292e”
8 Listen to the communication between WAD-104 and Router
tcpdump -nni udp port 3189 Do not put the <> symbols around the LAN-interface
“For example, ”
“17:08:55.852393 IP 192.168.0.108.37783 > 192.168.0.255.3189: UDP, length 1004”

How to setup Routers and Access Points

Ruckus ZF7372 AP requires to be stand alone router to work with a WAD server that has its DHCP server disabled. That would be the case when using WAD-110 or 120 server with its DHCP server disabled or using WAD-104 always since the WAD-104 does not have a DHCP server.

But many Ruckus products are available with firmware which does not allow the APs to become stand alone routers. They require upgrade of firmware and here is the instruction on how to upgrade the firmware particularly for the Ruckus ZF7372 AP.

  • Download the stand alone firmware 9.7.1.0.32 and firmware 104.0.0.0.1347 into your PC.<.li>
  • Unzip them to .bl7 files.
  • Connect the ZF7372 AP via LAN to a router LAN port to be assigned an IP address. Power the ZF7372 using a 12V PSU directly into the ZF7372 AP. Wait until the power light indicator will become solid green.
  • Connect your PC via LAN to the router LAN port
  • Find the IP address assigned to the ZF7372 AP by the router by entering the Admin account of the router from your PC. The IP address can be found in the DHCP Client List inside the admin account.
  • Next enter the Admin account of the ZF7372 AP. The ID and Password in default are “super” and “sp-admin”.
  • Go to Upgrade in the left column menu. Select “Local” and select the file 104.0.0.0.1347.bl7 from your PC. Press Upgrade.
  • Wait until the upgrade is complete. Then login again to the Admin account of the ZF7372 AP. Go to Upgrade in the left column menu. Select “Local” and select the file 9.7.1.0.32.bl7 from your PC. Press Upgrade.
  • When done, disconnect the ZF7372 AP from the LAN and power connections.
  • The upgrade is complete. The ZF7372 AP is now ready to be configured for use with a WAD server following the instruction.
