LAN port

LAN port allows you to configure the settings for the LAN port. You can configure the following options:

  • Wired LAN port: Shows the name of the LAN port.
  • Enable: Turn the specified LAN port on or off.
  • Speed & duplex: Select the speed & duplex type for the specified LAN port. Auto allows the access point to choose the best settings. LAN ports can operate up to 2500 Mbps for all AP6 access points except AP6 420, which can operate up to 1000 Mbps. Full-duplex allows the simultaneous transfer and receiving of data packets.
  • Flow control: Turn flow control on or off. Flow control pauses new session requests until data processing is complete to avoid overloading the access point under heavy traffic.
  • 802.3az: Turn 802.3az on or off. 802.3az is an energy-efficient ethernet feature that turns off unused interfaces to reduce power usage.

Port trunking

Port trunking is only available on the 840E access point.

Port trunking, also called link aggregation, increases network bandwidth by combining the access point's physical LAN ports into a single logical interface. To turn on port trunking, do as follows:

  1. Go to Network settings > LAN port > Port trunking.
  2. Click Enable.
  3. Scroll to the top of the page and click Apply.
