Cnmatrix, how do I apply a static IP? It currently errors out

I have a network of 172.16.11.64/27 programmed for my test lab with a gateway of .65.

I am trying to program my cnmatrix switch with the following:
172.16.11.66/27
Default gateway: 172.16.11.65

But it errors out as shown in the picture above. How do I fix that?

ERROR: default gateway should be on a directly connected network

Hi,

have you tried from command line? This could be a GUI error (maybe a bad js?).

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.16.11.65

I have not encountered the same error on the switch running 4.4-r3. Please see below.

Verify the setting on the swith via CLI

Can you type the command ‘show ip route’ to confirm the setting of default gateway?

WorkBench-Test# show ip route

S 0.0.0.0/0 [1/1] via 172.16.11.65
C 172.16.11.64/27 is directly connected, vlan1

Hi, the ip address and default gateway look correct in the switch. Is there any problem?

@TamN thank you for responding. I opened a support ticket (337558) and I am working on several configuration issues/bugs now. It appears that Cnmatrix switches just really are not meant to be programmed from the GUI and need to be programmed via the CLI i’m guessing. I’ve ran into a few bugs now that hopefully are submitted.

I am having a very frustrating experience working with these. From the awful UI to the massive POE issues we are seeing I’m not sure these are the switches for us. The Mikrotik switch we are evaluating is much more polished and intuitive. Coming from the Mikrotik/Netonix/Ubiquiti world, I’m not happy with the performance of these for the premium price.

Hi JoeG, I am sorry to hear you are facing obstacles with our switches. I would like to have a call with you to understand your concerns, and hopefully to clear up/resolve them. Appreciate very much for your time and feedbacks. Please let me know when and how I can reach out to you. My contact is tam.nguyen@cambiumnetworks.com.

Best Regards

Thanks @TamN e-mail sent

I just want to update this post. @TamN went above and beyond and guided us through a remote session. Once I used Cnmaestro to configure all the settings everything works as expected. Great support from Cambium.

Thank you, Joe. We are continuing to improve our Web GUI to make the configuration more intuitive. We appreciate your feedbacks and take them seriously. Looking forward to working with you again.

Best Regards,
Tam

It’s confirmed it was a GUI’s bug?

Hi, it is rather a kronwn limitation in the IPv4 Quick Start. The configuration applies to the default VLAN 1. Unlike a L-2 switch, cnMatrix supports inter-vlan routing and dynamic routing and hence there can be multiple vlan subnets. In the future release we can add ability to specify the management vlan to apply the IP setting on.
