Read-only value

Access Point

unknown, last access point

Read-only value. Unknown indicates the unit has never connected to an access point. Otherwise, the last access point the unit connected to appears.

Default Gateway Switching

enabled, disabled

When enabled (checked), the system uses the gateway provided by the Access Point.

Important: When you connect to a third party Access Point, the gateway changes to reflect what is provided by the Access Point configuration. This connection conflicts with your wired LAN settings. This situation does not occur when connecting to a FX80 Access Point. When disabled (not checked), keep the gateway as assigned in TCP/IP Configuration view.

Once the WiFi Selector Switch on the unit is in the CLT position, setting the WiFi Enabled property to true activates the Discover button.
