NanoStation M2 Setup As An Access Point

I decided to upgrade my Nanostation 2 to the Nanostation m2.

I was so happy with the performance of the Nanostation 2 that i wanted to upgrade to include wireless N .

The Nanostation M2 mode includes IEEE 802.11 B/G/N mixed.

I have set this up as an indoor Access point

I found that the my modems wireless worked well upstairs but would not do the whole house as well as the downstairs area including the garage. I wanted something that just worked everywhere.

I disabled the wireless on the modem and configured the Nanostation m2.

I had a network connection downstairs, so it was simple to connect to the existing network.

Nanostation M2 default IP addres or

The default username and password is ubnt

I configured the Nanostation as a wireless access point then created a wireless password.

Don't forget to change the Nanostation username and password which is ubnt.

Most people change the wireless password but forget to change the device password.

If you are having issues connecting to it even though the passwords are correct you may need to disable airMax in airMax settings and also set the channel width to 20.

This is the best wireless access point I have used.

Here is some snapshots of my configuration.
