IP address and authentication data of LANCOM devices in the factory state


Description:
This document describes the IP address and authentication data required to access LANCOM devices.



IP address in factory state:

1) LANCOM routers and access points:
  • If an unconfigured router or access point is connected to a network with a DHCP server, the device will obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.
  • If an unconfigured router or access point is connected to a network without a DHCP server, the device analyses the broadcasts to detect the network. The device uses the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and sets its number on this network to 254.

    Example:
    A broadcast is received from the IP address 192.168.1.15. The device in this example sets the IP address to 192.168.1.254.

Please note:
If this IP address is already assigned, this will result in an IP address conflict and lead to communication problems!
  • If the network has neither a DHCP server nor any other network participants, the device sets its own address to the default 172.23.56.254.


2) LANCOM switches:
  • If an unconfigured switch is connected to a network with a DHCP server, the device will obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.
  • If the switch is connected to a network without a DHCP server, the device sets its own address to the default 172.23.56.250.

Please note:
If this IP address is already assigned, this will result in an IP address conflict and lead to communication problems!



Authentication data in the factory state:

1) LANCOM routers and access points:

Administrator: root

Password: There is no password set.
    Note:
    If no administrator is specified, the device implicitly uses the user root. If this user is to be used, the field can be left empty.


2) LANCOM switches:

Username: admin

Password: admin


Catchwords: Standard; Default; Passwort; IP-Adresse; IP; Werkszustand
