New EnGenius ECW220v2 WiFi 6 Access Point Review

« Benchmarks and Observations | Final Thoughts »

Software and Management

To manage the EnGenius ECW220v2 you need to register the device on https://cloud.engenius.ai/ If you already have an account with EnGenius all you have to do is log in and register your AP. From cloud management, you are able to perform most of the functions such as radio settings and SSID creation. Once the device is online it will “call-home” to the EnGenius cloud and show up under your account.

Note: Following ports are needed for a successful connection to the Cloud to be made.

Cloud Device Cloud Services Source IP Destination IP Ports Protocol (TCP/UDP/ICMP..) Direction (Inbound / Outbound /Bi-Direction)
AP,SW, Ensky Periodical Cloud communication, Firmware Upgrade, Real-Time Meter Your Networks any 443 TCP Outbound
AP,SW, Ensky Persistent Cloud communication Your Networks 44.224.197.174 80 TCP Outbound
AP Cloud Radius Your Networks 44.225.123.183 1812/1813 TCP & UDP Outbound
AP,SW, Ensky NTP time synchronization Your Networks any 123 UDP Outbound
AP,SW, Ensky Remote Tunnel Your Networks 44.230.110.152 22 TCP Outbound

Management of your Network is a breeze with the EnGenius cloud. The dashboard will show your new AP and you can start configuring it the right-a-way. If you have multiple APs and Switches on the network you can manage them all here as well.

When you click on the ECW220v2 you will be brought to the access point page where most of the informational settings could be found. One of the great features the AP portal provides is the live status of the device and its usage.

Configuration of the Radio settings for 2.4 and 5GHz channels could be done in the Radio Settings menu on the left. Here you can see I have modeled settings recommended by the EnGenius team. To configure key encryption and SSID settings you would need to navigate to the SSID menu on the left and perform the required changes.

As you can see all of the settings are done through the EnGenius Cloud console however actual AP does have a local interface as well. Once you found out whats your AP IP address is (by use of third-party tools) you can navigate to the IP address in your browser and you will be able to log in to the local configuration pages. There isn’t much here to play around with except the general settings of the AP such as name, interface IP address, and VLAN configuration.
