Advanced Gigabit Ethernet Router
QUICK START GUIDE
Thank you for purchasing the Ubiquiti Networks® EdgeRouter ™ X. This Quick Start Guide is designed to guide you through installation and also includes warranty terms.
- For indoor applications, use Category 5 (or above) UTP cabling approved for indoor use.
- For outdoor applications, shielded Category 5 (or above) cabling should be used for all wired Ethernet connections. To enhance ESD protection, attach a ground wire (not included) to the back panel of the EdgeRouter X.
We recommend that you protect your networks from harmful outdoor environments and destructive ESD events with industrial-grade, shielded Ethernet cable from Ubiquiti Networks. For more details, visit www.ubnt.com/toughcable
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose the EdgeRouter X to rain or moisture.
Note: Although the cabling can be located outdoors, the EdgeRouter X itself should be housed inside a protective enclosure.
|Green||Link Established at 10/100/1000 Mbps
Flashing Indicates Activity
|eth0/PoE In||RJ45 port accepts 24V passive PoE and supports a 10/100/1000 Ethernet connection.|
|eth1‑3||RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections.|
|eth4/PoE Out||RJ45 port supports passive PoE passthrough and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet connection.|
Passive PoE Passthrough
The EdgeRouter X can be powered by either method:
- Power adapter
- 24V passive PoE on the eth0/PoE In port
Passive PoE output on port eth4/PoE Out works as a passthrough and depends on the input power source.
If the included Power Adapter (12V, 0.5A) is used, there may not be sufficient passthrough to power another device because the EdgeRouter X can consume up to 5 watts on its own.
We recommend using a more powerful input power source (not included); here are a few examples of viable power input options for passive PoE passthrough:
|Power Input||Passive PoE Passthrough|
|24V passive PoE (on eth0/PoE In)*||≈23V, 5W|
(ERLite-3 Power Adapter)
(ERPoe-5 Power Adapter)
* Not compatible with 24V, 1A Gigabit PoE Adapter.
|Reset||There are two methods to reset the
EdgeRouter X to factory defaults:
Runtime Reset (Recommended)
The EdgeRouter X should be running after bootup is complete. Press and hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds until the eth4 LED starts flashing and then becomes solidly lit. After a few seconds, the LED will turn off, and the EdgeRouter X will automatically reboot.
1. Disconnect the Power Adapter from the EdgeRouter X.
2. Press and hold the Reset button while connecting the Power Adapter to the EdgeRouter X. Keep holding the button until the eth4 LED starts flashing and then stops flashing after a few seconds.
|Ground||ESD grounding for enhanced ESD protection. The ground wire and screw with washer are not included (recommended screw size: M3-0.5 x 4 mm).|
|Power||Connect the Power Adapter.|
Place the EdgeRouter X on a flat, horizontal surface or mount it on a wall (mounting screws not included).
WARNING: FAILURE TO PROVIDE PROPER VENTILATION MAY CAUSE FIRE HAZARD. KEEP AT LEAST 20 MM OF CLEARANCE NEXT TO THE VENTILATION HOLES FOR ADEQUATE AIRFLOW.
Follow the appropriate instructions for your installation:
Connecting Power Using the Power Adapter
Connect the Power Adapter to the Power port of the EdgeRouter X. Then plug the Power Adapter into a power outlet.
Connecting Power Using PoE
Connect the PoE cable of a PoE switch or adapter to the eth0/PoE In port of the EdgeRouter X.
Accessing the Configuration Interface
- Follow the appropriate instruction for your installation:
• If you are using the Power Adapter, then connect an Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port of your host system to the port labeled eth0/PoE In on the EdgeRouter X.
• If you are using PoE, then connect your host system to the PoE switch or adapter.
- Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
- Launch your web browser. Type https://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
- The login screen will appear. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Read the Ubiquiti License Agreement, and check the box next to I agree to the terms of this License Agreement to accept it. Click Login.
