Configuring AX411 Access Point Country-Specific Settings

Under most circumstances, you do not need to set any country-specific settings in order to install, configure, and use the access point. However, the following two access point versions are supplied with the country code set to a null value:

For these units, you must set the country code and two other country-specific settings before you can use the access point.

To configure the country code and the two other country-specific settings, perform one of the following procedures before testing connectivity to the access point:

With the Command-Line Interface

  1. Find your country in the country and channel support table in AX411 Access Point Country and Channel Support and write down the following:

    • The two-letter country code in the first column
    • Whether the word “None” appears in either of the Radio 1 or Radio 2 columns (fourth and fifth columns) under the “Channels Supported” header, and, if so, which column in which it appears
    • Whether 40 MHz channel bandwidth is supported for the 2.4 GHz frequency band (Radio 2), shown in the seventh column
    • Whether 40 MHz channel bandwidth is supported for the 5 GHz frequency band (Radio 1), shown in the eighth column
  2. If you have not already done so, establish a console connection with the SRX Series Services Gateway as described in the hardware guide for the services gateway, and log into the CLI.
  3. Enter configuration mode:
    admin@> editEntering configuration mode
  4. Create an access point instance in the SRX Series device configuration:
    admin@# set wlan access-point name mac-address mac_address

    where name is the name you want to apply to the access point and mac_address is the MAC address written on the serial number label on the bottom of the access point.

    For example:

    admin@# set wlan access-point silver mac-address 0012cfc75dc0
  5. Set the country code for the access point instance:
    admin@# set wlan access-point name access-point-options country country_code

    where country_code is the two-letter country code for your location, entered in uppercase letters.

    For example:

    admin@# set wlan access-point silver access-point-options country GB
  6. If either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz operation is not allowed in your country, as indicated by the word “None” in either the fourth or fifth column of the table, use the following CLI command to disable either the 2.4 GHz radio (Radio 2) or the 5 GHz radio (Radio 1) as appropriate:
    admin@# set wlan access-point name radio 1|2 radio-options radio-off
  7. If 40 MHz channel bandwidth is not supported for the 2.4 GHz frequency band in your country, as indicated by an “N” in the seventh column of the table, use the following CLI command to set the 2.4 GHz channel bandwidth to 20 MHz. The default channel bandwidth is 40 MHz, so if the column contains “Y” you can skip to the next step:
    admin@# set wlan access-point name radio 2 radio-options channel bandwidth 20
  8. If 40 MHz channel bandwidth is not supported for the 5 GHz frequency band in your country, as indicated by an “N” in the eighth column of the table, use the following CLI command to set the 5 GHz channel bandwidth to 20 MHz. The default channel bandwidth is 40 MHz, so if the column contains “Y” you can skip to the next step:
    admin@# set wlan access-point name radio 1 radio-options channel bandwidth 20
  9. Commit your changes:
    admin@#> commitcommit complete

With the J-Web Interface

  1. Find your country in the country and channel support table in AX411 Access Point Country and Channel Support and write down the following:

    • Whether the word “None” appears in either of the Radio 1 or Radio 2 columns (fourth and fifth columns) under the “Channels Supported” header, and, if so, which column it appears in
    • Whether 40 MHz channel bandwidth is supported for the 2.4 GHz frequency band (Radio 2), shown in the seventh column
    • Whether 40 MHz channel bandwidth is supported for the 5 GHz frequency band (Radio 1), shown in the eighth column
  2. If you have not already done so, start the J-Web interface by browsing to the IP address or hostname of the SRX Series device.
  3. In J-Web, choose Configure > Wireless LAN > Settings to open the Wlan Settings pane.
  4. On the Wlan Settings pane, click the Add button above the access point list.
  5. On the Add - Access Point dialog box:

    1. In the Access point name box, type a name for the access point.
    2. In the MAC address box, enter the MAC address printed on the serial number label on the bottom of the access point.
    3. In the Country menu, choose the country in which the access point is operating.
  6. At the bottom of the Add - Access Point dialog box, click OK.
  7. On the lower part of the Wlan Settings pane, click the Add button above the radio list. The Add - Radio dialog box opens with the Radio tab at the front.
  8. On the Add - Radio dialog box Radio tab:

    1. From the Radio Type menu, choose Radio 1 (the 5 GHz radio).
    2. If 5 GHz operation is not allowed in your country, as indicated by the word “None” in the fifth column of the table, mark the Disabled radio button below the Radio Type menu.
    3. Click the Radio Settings tab to bring it to the front.
    4. If 40 MHz channel bandwidth is not supported for the 5 GHz frequency band in your country, as indicated by an “N” in the eighth column of the table, click the Channel Bandwidth menu and choose 20 to set the 5 GHz channel bandwidth to 20 MHz. The default channel bandwidth is 40 MHz, so if the column contains “Y” you can skip this step.
  9. At the bottom of the Add - Radio dialog box, click OK.
  10. On the lower part of the Wlan Settings pane, click the Add button above the radio list. The Add - Radio dialog box opens with the Radio tab at the front.
  11. On the Add - Radio dialog box Radio tab:

    1. From the Radio Type menu, choose Radio 2 (the 2.4 GHz radio).
    2. If 2.4 GHz operation is not allowed in your country, as indicated by the word “None” in the fourth column of the table, mark the Disabled radio button below the Radio Type menu.
    3. Click the Radio Settings tab to bring it to the front.
    4. If 40 MHz channel bandwidth is not supported for the 2.4 GHz frequency band in your country, as indicated by an “N” in the seventh column of the table, click the Channel Bandwidth menu and choose 20 to set the 2.4 GHz channel bandwidth to 20 MHz. The default channel bandwidth is 40 MHz, so if the column contains “Y” you can skip this step.
  12. At the bottom of the Add - Radio dialog box, click OK.
