Configuring Ruckus Access Point(s)

  1. Plug in your EdgeSwitch to power and connect an ethernet cable from the EdgeSwitch to the PoE port on the Ruckus wireless access point.

    Alternatively you can use a 12V, 2.0A, 48W power adapter. Double check that your models are the Unleashed devices.

  2. Wait a few minutes for the Ruckus wireless access point to boot up.

  3. Under your wireless network settings, connect to the “Configure.MeXXXXXX” wireless network.

  4. Once connected to the wireless network, open a web browser and navigate to

  5. You should be led to a page that shows “Your connection is not private”. Select Advanced then “Proceed to 192.168.X.XXX”.

  6. If prompted, enter the default username of “super” and password, “sp-admin”.

  7. Double check that Typical Install is selected, click Next.

  8. Enter the name of the device (i.e. Hudl Replay Bench), select the country where the device will be used, and be sure to check the box next to Mesh, then click Next.

    This is not the same thing as the network SSID, that will be added later.

  9. Be sure to leave the IP settings on DHCP unless otherwise consulted and click Next.

  10. Enter the desired SSID and password for the wireless network. Write this information down or take a screenshot to ensure you’ve got the correct settings, then click Next.

  11. Set up the Ruckus wireless access point administrator username and password. This is used to configure any settings after the device has been initially configured. Write this information down or take a screenshot to have this information later on and click Next.

  12. Confirm that your settings match this configuration guide, then click Finish.

  13. Click on Yes to restart the access point.

  14. Viewing iPads cannot be more than 25ft/8m from the Ruckus Access Point(s). Once you’ve confirmed that the new wireless network is available, connect your iPad to the access point.

  15. Turn off WiFi on your MacBook Pro running the live capture and connect the machine with an ethernet cable to the EdgeSwitch. Confirm your MacBook Pro is connected via ethernet and configured with DHCP instead of manual configuration.

  16. Use an ethernet cable to connect the stadium's network to the EdgeSwitch and unplug the Ruckus wireless access point.

  17. Take the Ruckus wireless access point to the bench area or secondary stadium network location for usage of Hudl Replay wirelessly.

  18. Power up the Ruckus wireless access point and connect it to the secondary ethernet location on the same stadium network as used above. You may need to use a DC power adapter or additional powered EdgeSwitch if no POE is available on the stadium network side.

  19. At this point, the network should be configured correctly. Follow this tutorial to get Hudl Replay running over the network.
