How do I install the A-Series Access Point to a solid wall or ceiling?


  • Datto A-Series Access Points


The A-Series makes it easy to deploy enterprise WiFi virtually anywhere. This video demonstrates how to install the A-Series to a solid wall or ceiling.

  1. To start, remove the rear door and gasket from the access point.
  2. Attach the universal mounting plate to any solid surface with the smooth side against the wall.
  3. If the Ethernet cable is in the wall or ceiling, pull it through the mounting plate; if the cable is outside the wall or ceiling, place it in the cable channel.
  4. Plug the Ethernet cable into the port marked Ethernet 1. 
  5. Next, place the access point over the mounting plate and slide down until it locks into place.
  6. To unlock, insert a small, flat screwdriver into the hole on the side of the access point; slide the access point up until it disengages from the mounting plate.
