A warning message of Ethernet information.

Question

The AP is managed by Nebula. It shows online on NCC, and the WiFi service is ok. The stations can access the internet without any issue. However, there is a warning message on the AP information of AP web GUI. What is the situation?

Ethernet: This access point is trying to join a network or find a working Ethernet connection.

Answer

It is because the gateway does not reply the ping request from the AP. Here are the explanations for each message of "Ethernet" item.

1. Ethernet: This access point is trying to join a network or find a working Ethernet connection. <= It means the AP cannot get the response from the gateway. Maybe the gateway is not allowed to ping.
 
2. Ethernet: This access point is directly connected to a local network. <= If the gateway replies the ping request, it will show this message.
 
3. Ethernet: There is no default gateway IP on this access point. <= It means there is no gateway information on the AP.
