Ruckus Zoneflex to Unleashed

This guide will walk you through converting an access point on Zoneflex software to Unleashed. 

Getting started:

Ensure the access point has had about 5 minutes powered up to boot. Do an IP scan with a program like Angry IP Scanner to find the APs IP address then log into it by typing https://ipaddress

Note: you must add an s to the end of http otherwise it will not load.

Note: If you are adding this to a system already running Unleashed the AP will adopt into the system and you are done with this guide. If this is going to be a new install then give the AP 6 minutes to fully boot and load Unleashed. Also it would be best to open a private tab when trying to log into the AP for the first time.
