    I don't really understand this question. You'd need to setup a wireless network to use this, there isn't a controller (AFAIK) like with Ubiquiti (but maybe) to setup a network and use this.

    What is confusing you?
    was it when I asked if anyone has seen this product before?
    or is it because I said I didnt know what I was getting into with setup of this.



  • The stat sheet says it uses a cloud controller - so is it like Meraki? i.e. if you don't pay them for access to the cloud controller, it's just a rock?

    What are you asking about these specifically?

    How to use it. that's my guess - he's never heard of or seen one of these before.

    How would someone who's never heard of something begin to work on it? Look it up and see what information is available on it.

    (I've never heard of these either, but I can operate google)

    Yeah - he was cheating - asking to see if someone else had experience and could just point him in the right direction...





  • Y'all are being pretty aggressive with @WrCombs today. Some of the ways that things have been communicated today in various threads I wouldn't tolerate in a professional environment, and others that just aren't terribly kind. Just my opinion. Do with it what you will.

    Some of the things that ask within the past day or two have been absolutely insane we know that he is capable of substantially more and yes everybody is willing to learn at all times but somethings just don't make sense like what is specifically being asked here.

    Corrected for voice to text

    So you're saying Don't use the Fourm to ask questions about products to short cut?

    Next time you post something I'll comment and say Google works just fine ; why not google it.

    This is fucking ridiculous.

    You're obviously not here to help ; rather just talk shit and be a miserable dick.

    you wanna help, Great. Im open to listen and take advice.

    And if not then I don't need you on my shit and you can get bent.



  • @WrCombs yes, I work with Datto equipment and they are alright. But yeah it uses a controller.

    Which is the right way to do it because it would lead to a shorter turnaround time for him to turn this up and get it done

    OK so maybe tell us what to do to get a controller you answer the question but didn’t actually help move it forward. I personally never work with these so I have no idea



  • @JaredBusch I will once I am settled, I was on the road and now I am home and able to answer this.

    I know the vendor, they are well known in the backup / DR world. Was not aware of them having networking equipment. Their HQ used to be across the street from my office on a back street in Connecticut. <- Random personal anecdote.

    Yes, they do now the following:

    • Datto Networking Switches
    • Datto Networking Wifi
    • Datto Networking EDgerouters

    Who did they acquire? Or did they do this all in house?



  • To answer the question that @WrCombs was asking. THe first step I need to know if this Access Point was purchased by your boss through a Partner or Directly (Which is rarely the case). The Datto Access Points (AP) are managed through the Cloud Portal of the MSP that usually manages them.

    The AP60 is not the latest and should be on AP62 now.

    I missed one more, they do also Managed Power. That said, to answer your question they acquired OpenMesh for this

    That does not sound promising. Do these units work if they cannot reach the controller? I mean after they’re programmed the first time.

    Without the controller the device cannot be managed as there is no interface to manage standalone.

    You probably edited your post after me since I quoted only what you posted. But I will answer it shortly.

    it was given as a gift from a vendor and she brought it in.

    She just told me that we dont have to use it ; But I'm running out of time and options here...

    it was a partial answer to the question, though -
    If they can't reach the controller they can not be configured to work - So in a sense he did answer the question ; At least from my View ; I dont know about yours.
