3.  Can I manually upgrade the firmware of my Linksys Business Cloud Access Point?
 
If you are managing the access point via the Linksys Cloud Manager, you can only perform firmware updates via the Cloud.  To learn how to do this, click here.
 
If you need to do a manual firmware update, you can do so via the local interface but you will need to disable the Linksys Cloud Manager first, which will reset your access point's settings.  You will also need to delete the access point from the Cloud and add the access point again into the Cloud.  To learn how to upgrade the Linksys Business Cloud Access Point's firmware though the local interface, click here.
 
4.  Does the Linksys Business Cloud Access Point support bandwidth limitation?
 
Yes, the administrator can set the bandwidth limitation.  To learn how, click here.

 5.   What are the TCP or UDP ports used by the Linksys LAPAC1750C in the Cloud?

The access point will communicate to the Cloud with port TCP/8002.  In case port TCP/8002 is closed, the access point will change and use port TCP/443 instead.  

NOTE:  Port TCP/443 is a fallback port.  If the access point uses it to connect to the Cloud, it will not use port TCP/8002.  Port TCP/443 is the same as ports used by HTTPS applications.  It should be open by default in most networks.


TROUBLESHOOTING

1.  Why is my Linksys LAPAC1750C showing Offline in the Cloud?
 
The access point will display offline due to one of the following reasons:
  1. If the access point is down or is not connected to the internet.
  2. If the access point was reset. 
  3. If the Linksys Cloud Manager was disabled or re-enabled.
To fix these, follow the troubleshooting tips below: 
 
TIP 1:  Confirm the status of the access point by logging in to its local interface.  If the access point has the Cloud module enabled, then you can check the LAN settings or use the Ping test tool or check the network connections.  Once the access point will be able to reach the internet via TCP/8002 or TCP/443, it should get the configuration in less than 3 minutes (time needed by the access point to apply the configuration). 
 
TIP 2:  If the Cloud button at the top right-hand corner of the local interface shows Enable Cloud Manager, this means that the Cloud Manager is disabled.  You need to enable it and delete it from the Cloud Manager.  To learn how, click here Once deleted, add the access point back into the Cloud Manager.  To learn how, click here

2.  How do I delete an access point from a network?
 
Follow the steps below to delete an access point from a network.
 
Step 1:
Log in to the Linksys Cloud Manager.  To learn how, click here.
 
Step 2:
In the Networks page, select a network and click Access Points tab.
 
Step 3:
Select your access point, click the ellipsis icon, then click Delete.

Step 4:
Click Delete to proceed.

 
3.  There are no Wireless SSID slot names to select for the access point, what could be the problem?
 
To add a Wireless SSID slot, a Wireless profile must first exist.  To create a new Wireless profile, go to the SSIDs page to create it.  To learn more, click
here.
 
4.  How do I change the settings of a Wireless profile?
 
To learn how to change the settings of a Wireless profile, such as changing the password or bandwidth limit, click here.
 
5.  How do I reset my Linksys Business Cloud Access Point to factory defaults?
 
To reset the device to factory default settings, press and hold the reset button for longer than 15 seconds or until you see the light indicator is blinking red.
