  • How do I perform a factory reset?
    • Hold the reset button for 5-10sec.
    • This will reset the AP and require a controller to re-adopt the unit. This is not recomended for general troubleshooting!
  • How many networks can I run off of this one AP?
    • Up to 8 per Radio
  • Does this AP come with a PoE injector for use on a non-PoE enabled switch?
    • Yes!

NOTE: The 5pack version of this AP does NOT come with PoE injector, it is recommended to use them with a PoE enabled switch like the UniFi Switch 8-150W or better.
