A visual presentation of our network is displayed below. The EnGenius Home Switch 8p is connected to the Internet and both the already installed ECW230 and ECW230S are connected to the switch so they are able to connect to the Internet. Of course both ECW230/ECW230S can be working at Mesh connection to further improve reception.
Each EnGenius device has its own control panel that can be used to view various information and of course change settings. There are also logs available for admin to view, like firmware updates etc. You can also turn off the included lights for stealth operation. All Engenius Cloud devices have one year of PRO features for free. What the Pro functions do? Well they add several important for admin features to make their life easier. In order to activate the one year of free PRO functions you need to head over the Inventory & License, and under the feature plan select from BASIC -> PRO License. You can view here, what he PRO license offers and it costs $50 per device (AP or Switch).
Since the control panel is wide, click at each photo for a larger view. As with all EnGenius devices, users can select/adjust most of its features via the EnGenius Cloud.
Under the Diag Tools, the ECW230S has all what we have already seen with the ECW230, like real time AP activity, trace root, like clients, channel utilization
Firmware releases from EnGenius are often and can be selected, either Stable or Beta channel or when the firmware update will occur automatically.
