Change IP Address

You can change the IP address of the MA Network Switch.
The IP address will be used to reach the web interface.
The current IP address is displayed at the upper right corner of the front display and in the title bar of the web interface.

If you change the IP address and the new IP address is within another subnet, it is necessary to set the IP address on your computer to connect to the web interface.
If the computer and the switch are in different subnet, the connection to the web interface is not possible.
Make sure that every device in the network has its unique IP address. If two devices have the same IP address in a network, the devices might not be reachable.

Requirement: Connection to the web interface.

  1. Click Tools / Edit General Settings.
  2. Type the new IP address in the IP address field.
  3. Click Apply settings and stay where you are or Apply settings and leave edit.
    The new IP address is displayed at the front end display of the switch.

The IP address is changed and saved in the startup configuration. To access the web interface, type the new IP address in the address field of the browser and press Enter.
