Installing the AX411 Access Point Mounting Bracket on a Wall

To install the access point mounting bracket on a wall:

  1. Obtain the optional mounting bracket from your Juniper Networks reseller. The mounting bracket is not supplied with the access point.
  2. Locate the place on the wall where you intended to mount the access point.
  3. Use the mounting bracket as a template to mark the locations for two screws that secure the mounting bracket to the wall. If practical, use screw holes on opposite sides or edges of the mounting bracket.
  4. If necessary, install anchors for the screws to distribute the weight of the access point into the wall.
  5. Attach the mounting bracket to the wall using screws appropriate to the wall and anchoring system.

  2. Locate the two pins protruding from the underside of the access point.
  3. Orient the access point so that the captive screw on the rear panel matches the tab on the mounting bracket.

  5. Slide the access point so that the pins engage the narrower portions of the keyhole slots in the mounting bracket.
  6. Secure the access point to the mounting bracket by tightening the captive screw on the rear panel of the access point.
