Wall-Mounting

Grounding the EdgeSwitch (Optional)

The EdgeSwitch is grounded through the Power Adapter; however, you can add optional ESD grounding for enhanced ESD protection.

Connecting Power

Connecting Ethernet

Note: PoE is disabled by default on all numbered ports and is not available on the Management port. To enable PoE on the appropriate ports, use the Ports tab in the Configuration Interface.

Accessing the Configuration Interface

Connect to the Configuration Interface:

  1. Ensure that your computer (or other host machine) is connected to the Management port on the EdgeSwitch.
  2. Note: By default, you can configure the EdgeSwitch via any port; however, we recommend the Management port. (Access to the Configuration Interface can be limited to the Management port only. You can configure this setting on the Device tab.)

  3. Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet (e.g., 192.168.1.100).
  4. Launch your web browser. Type https://192.168.1.20 in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  5. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Login.

The Configuration Interface will appear and allow you to customize your settings. You can enable PoE on the Ports tab.

You can also manage your device using the Ubiquiti® Network Management System. UNMS lets you configure, monitor, upgrade, and back up your devices using a single application.
