Testing Connectivity to the AX411 Access Point Wireless LAN

After you have installed and connected the AX411 Access Point and configured the SRX Series device with basic settings, test whether the wireless LAN is functioning.

  1. Confirm that the access point is connected to the services gateway. We recommend that you connect the access point to an Ethernet port other than ge-0/0/0.
  2. Confirm that the Power LED on the access point is lit steady green, showing that the access point is powered on.
  3. Confirm that the Status LED on the access point is lit steady green, showing that the access point is being managed by the services gateway.
  4. Use a laptop computer or other wireless device to view the available networks near where the access point is installed. You should find a security-enabled network with juniper-default as its SSID. The default wireless LAN settings are described in Table 1.
  5. Connect to the juniper-default network. When prompted for a WPA2-PSK security key, enter juniper-wireless.
