192.168.112.107
Purpose
Managed switch
Operating System
Hardware
HP PS1810-8G (J9833A)
Version

Additional information
  • Management
    • You need to be on the home network LAN (VLAN5) to access the management interface (web UI). As per the manual if a DHCP server does not exist, you can connect to the switch on 192.168.2.10/24.
  • VLAN information
    VLAN1 (default)
    ports: none
    VLAN2 (NBN WAN LAN)
    ports: none (only used on the router interface)
    VLAN3 (side project LAN)
    ports: 1t, 8
    VLAN4 (guest network LAN)
    ports: 1t, 2t, 7t
    VLAN5 (home network LAN)
    ports: 1t, 2t, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

    If the switch’s management interface cannot be reached (i.e. you cannot access it via your browser, or ping the device) then restart the switch.

IP Address
192.168.112.123 No description for this link
Purpose
Wireless Access Point
Operating System
TP-Link stock firmware No description for this link
Hardware
TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 v5
Additional information
  • IP address

    This device is configured with a static IP address (not acquired via static DHCP mappings) because the TP-Link stock firmware does not appear to support IP acquisition via DHCP.

  • Firmware

    OpenWRT for this device does not appear to support multiple wireless networks (for e.g. guests), in addition to having worse wireless performance (open-source firmware vs proprietary firmware).

  • VLAN information

    The TP-Link stock firmware does not expose VLAN functionality to the end-user. As such, VLAN functionality is not used.
