Behaviour
  • Bridged to WAN - Default setting. 
  • Disabled - This option disables Ethernet 2 and 3
  • Behave as Wireless SSID - This option means when you connect a wired client to Ethernet 2 or 3, that ethernet client will be part of the VLAN setting of the SSID you selected in the Wireless SSID dropdown field.  For example: 
sf317466-048_en_v3.png
 
NOTE:  To configure a VLAN ID for an SSID got to Wi-Fi SSIDs, click on Settings for an SSID, click on 
Addressing, enable the VLAN tagging, enter your VLAN ID, and click Save.  It is recommended to 
configure VLAN settings on your network to prevent a wired client from having access to all the 
networks connected to the ethernet ports otherwise just disable the ports. 


VLAN Tagging - Disabled by default.  Select Enabled and enter your VLAN ID, this VLAN ID 
will apply to both Ethernet 2 and 3 when Bridged to WAN is selected.

 
sf317466-049_en_v3.png

PoE out - By default this option is disabled, meaning the Ethernet 2 port can be used as a regular LANport without PoE capabilities.  However, if you want to connect a PoE client, you need to enable this option in the Linksys Cloud Manager in order to provide power to the PoE client.   The access point will need to be powered with an 802.3at PoE+ connection (on Ethernet 1 port located on the back) in order for this option to work.  Powering the access point with a standard 802.3af PoE connection or a 12V,1A power adapter will not provide sufficient power to enable this port. 
 
Local Access Credentials 
To change the admin password of an access point’s local web interface, use this section.  The default username and password is admin for both.
