Accessing the web-based setup page of the Linksys Access Points for Business

The Linksys Business Wireless-N (LAPN300 and LAPN600) and Wireless-AC (LAPAC1750, LAPAC1750PRO, LAPAC1200 and LAPAC2600) Access Points (APs) have the latest Wi-Fi technology to offer a powerful wireless network.  These access points provide a secure, high-speed wireless connectivity, and advanced security and management features so employees can bring their own devices to work, and can stay connected across the workplace.
 
IMPORTANT:  As a security feature, access to the web-based setup page using wireless client devices is disabled.  This feature can be enabled once you have gained access to the web-based setup page of your access point using an Ethernet cable.  If you want to enable access via wireless client, you will need to manually enable this option in the access point.


There are two (2) ways you can access the Linksys Business Access Points via a wired connection.  Click the links below for specific instructions:
