ARCFlex 5GHz 300Mbps MIMO CPE

Product page

The FCC IDs for this device are likely Z2B-AFM1 (RT3050 board)

and Z2B-AFM2 (RT3572 module).
  • Dual Radio - 2.4GHz AP (21dBi), 5GHz MIMO CPE (25dBi) w/ 18dBi antenna
  • 802.11bgn (150Mbps), 802.11an (300Mbps), all outdoor enclosure
  • POE Passthrough up to 24V, polarity independent

The same hardware is likely used for the FreeStation 2.

Assumed A8:87:ED OUI...

Per ARC Wireless' wiki...

  • the default SSID is arcweb (for both radios?)
  • the default IP is apparently if connected via the installer network
or if connected via private wireless or by Ethernet
  • the default password for the UI and telnet are admin/admin and user/user
  • PoE input port is eth0, output is eth1 (but PoE passthrough is disabled by default)
