Question

Can Open Mesh access points work without an internet connection? 

Environment

  • Datto Access Points

Answer

Our access points are designed and tested with a working and reliable internet connection in mind. They are not recommended for use with networks that have no internet connection. If you still plan on deploying the access points to a network with no internet connection, the following steps must be taken first:

  • All access points must be connected to the internet so they can be configured. There is no local interface to configure the access points.
  • You must also disable the the “Internet Check” feature so that the SSIDs will remain visible while not connecting to the internet. In CloudTrax go to: Configure > Radio > Disable Internet Check.

Keep in mind that CloudTrax Support is not able to troubleshoot access points installed on an offline networks
