ezMaster software provides users easy monitoring and managing tools. You
will be able to determine if the switches or access points are down,
offline, and/or busy. There are 3 management tools that can be used to
view the status of the switches and access points:

 

Please make sure that ezMaster software is active/running on a host
computer

Login to ezMaster software: (default username is admin and password is
“password”)

Select your project

Go to Device Management and click Summary.

This page will show you how many devices are in your Project (switches and
access points). This screen also shows how many managed devices are active
vs. offline.

Go to Visualization Tab to determine which switch or access point is
active or offline on your network.

Topology View:

This page will show you how access points are physically connected to the
switches. You can toggle the “Show Port Info” to determine
as to which port the access points are connected. The User/Installer can
then export and save the topology for specific purpose (i.e.
troubleshooting or debugging).

If you have an EWS Switch deployed in your network, you will be able to
see a visual view of the topology of all supported EWS devices in the
network. The EWS Switch will automatically map your network deployment,
and displays the device relationships across your network infrastructure.
 This is an essential feature for troubleshooting network issues that
would otherwise require manual mapping, overlay monitoring software, or
manually keeping track of MAC address tables.

Use the directional pad and the plus / minus buttons to navigate your view
of the network. You can also search Access Points in the network via their
IP or MAC address. Check the Show Port Info box to show or hide port
information.

Navigating Tips

Useto
scroll up, down, left, or right.

Useto Zoom
in/out. Alternatively, you can use the mouse to navigate by clicking and
dragging the left
mouse button. Use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out.


Mouse over a device to show information about the device.

Left click on the Switch bring up a menu where you can redirect to switch
or collapse topology tree.

Left click on the Access Point to bring up a menu where you can configure
AP settings, remove AP from
management list, reboot AP, redirect to
the Active Clients page or redirect to troubleshooting page.

You can search for an Access Point using the IP Address or MAC address.

Click onto
show or hide port information on the Controller.

Click onfor the Controller to save the current network topology. Changes will be
displayed upon
detecting a topology change.


Note: The EWS Switch can only generate topologies with EnGenius L2
Series switches. Non-EnGenius
switches will be marked as
“Uncontrollable LAN Switches” in the generated topology.

Map View:

Make sure that your browser/s support/s MAP plug ins/extension (Google MAP
for instance).

This page will show the geographical locations of the access points and
controller.

Color indicates the status whether the device is
online,
busy,
and/or,offline.

From here, you can view a geographical representation of Access Points in
the network. Click AP List to
display the list of Access Points
managed by the selected project then simply click-and-drag the AP
marker
to the desired location on the map.

Navigating Tips

Useto
scroll up, down, left, or right.

Use the slider bar to zoom in/out. Alternatively, you can use the mouse to
navigate by clicking and
dragging the left mouse button. Use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out.

Use the Search box to search for locations by typing an
address or the name of a landmark.


Use the Locate button to pinpoint the map to your
current location. Note that the location provided is calculated based on
your IP address and results might be inaccurate.

Click onfor the settings to take effect.

Floor Plan View:

After importing your floor plan image, you can distribute markers that
represent the APs to the correct
locations by clicking on AP List and dragging each marker icon to its
correct location on the floor plan. Individual plans for multiple floors
for a multi-story facility can be loaded.  Also, Wireless Coverage
Display can be toggled on to indicate the coverage range of each AP,
assisting IT managers to easily and accurately plan and deploy wireless
networks in any indoor environment. Click on Save Plan when done to save
settings.

Settings Tab can show the access point information (i.e. IP address, MAC
Address, number of users connected). It also allows user/installer to
simulate the RF Coverage (RSSI Range and Value) of the access point per
radio band (2.4GHz and 5GHz)

AP Info
AP Information: Select to toggle on/off AP
detailed information to be shown on your floor plan.
2.4GHz / 5GHz:
Select whether to display signal coverage of 2.4GHz or 5GHz radio. The
wireless
coverage displayed will be based on the transmit power
settings of the Access Point.
Scaling Tool: Use the scaling tool to
determine the exact distance on the floorplan.

Signal Indicator: The colored indicator displays the reference signal
strength covered.


RF Coverage:
Enable: Select to display
wireless coverage on your floor plan.
RSSI Value: Adjust RSSI value
to emulate using the slider bar.
Calibration Offset: Use the slider
bar to adjust the offset value based on the deployment.
RSSI Range
Simulate: Check the RSSI Simulate box to display RSSI reference on your
floor plan. Adjust
RSSI coverage range to emulate using the slider
bar.

Note this tool does not account for coverage effects from walls or
other structure in the environment.

managing.

The number in the marker represents the number of wireless clients that
are currently connected to the
Access Point.
