When your Beambox arrives, it will include the following.

  • 1x Beambox access point
  • 2x Network cables
  • 1x Power socket adapter
  • 1x Mounting kit
  • 1x Instructions manual

Every Beambox is configured and tested in advance, so installation typically takes around 30 seconds. Beambox is also designed to work in any network scenario, with support for both PoE-enabled switches and standard broadband routers.

Connecting Beambox to your broadband router

Beambox is tried and tested with all commonly used routers, as well as 4G routers for businesses that have remote requirements.

  1. Connect the first network cable from a port on your broadband router to the LAN port on the power socket adapter (not the Beambox)
  2. Connect the second network cable from the WAN port on the Beambox to the POE port on the power socket adapter
  3. Wait 5 minutes for Beambox to wake up 😴

Connecting Beambox to your switch

Beambox operates on 24V passive POE, ensure your switch supports this. Alternatively, Beambox can be used using the broadband method above, but with the switch LAN being used instead.

  1. Ensure the port is enabled with PoE and compatible.
  2. Connect a network cable from the switch port directly to the WAN port on the Beambox. LEDs will become active if Beambox is being provided power.
  3. Wait 5 minutes for Beambox to wake up 😴
