Hello can someone please confirm what the internal IP is of the access points and default username and password. I have just had 3 AP350 arrive & 3 AP330 but want to set there IP address and access each AP?

Also on the Hive manager how do you remove old devices? I had my Hive active for testing and those test units are still there.

Hi Martyn,

The default uaername and password for new Aerohive devices out of the box or after being reset will be admin/aerohive. For your reference, this can be found in our help system (and I believe it should have been included on the quick start guide that came in the package with your Aerohive devices):
For your network security, change the login password for your configured Aerohive devices: This is the password for the root admin to use when logging in to a new device. The default password is aerohive.
http://www.aerohive.com/330000/docs/help/english/6.1r5/hm/full/help.htm#home/start.htm

Regarding your question about the default IP address, Aerohive APs and switches are set to obtain a DHCP address if one is available on the VLAN to which they are connected and is the recommended method of configuration. Aerohive routers will hand out a 192.168.85.0/24 address by default on the LAN side, though the WAN port is configured to obtain an address from DHCP.

If no DHCP server is available on the VLAN to which you are connecting the devices, please do the following:
  1. Console into the device (applicable only to the AP121/141/230/320/330/340/350/370/390, BR200/200-WP and SR2000/2100 series switches)
  2. Enter the following commands to set the mgt0 IP address of a layer 2 device
    1. int mgt0 ip <ipv4 address>/<netmask> (ex: int mgt0 ip 10.200.20.80/24)
    2. int mgt0 vlan <mgmt vlan> (ex: int mgt0 vlan 20)
    3. int mgt0 native-vlan <native vlan> (ex: int mgt0 native-vlan 10)
    4. ip route default gateway <default gateway ip> (ex: ip route default gateway 10.200.20.1)
    5. dns server <dns server ip> (ex: dns server 10.200.20.20)
    6. At this point your layer 2 device should have connectivity and should be able to reach out to the redirector for provisioning
  3. Enter the following commands to set the eth0 WAN IP address of a layer 3 device
    1. int eth0 ip <ipv4 address>/<netmask> (ex: int eth0 ip 1.1.1.2/24)
    2. ip route default gateway <default gateway ip> (ex: ip route default gateway 1.1.1.1)
    3. dns server <dns server ip> (ex: dns server 8.8.8.8)
    4. At this point your layer 3 device should have connectivity out to the internet and should be able to reach out to the redirector for provisioning
To remove old devices from your HiveManager, simple tick the checkbox next to the device, click the "Device Inventory" button, then "Remove". Prior to HiveManager 6.1r2 you would just see a "Remove" button.

Hope this helps

I am not sure about the default IP address, but any AP tries DHCP first. So an easy way is to connect it into a Network with a DHCP server and look up its IP on the server's leases table. You can then access it via HTTP/HTTPS as well as SSH.

Default username is admin, password is aerohive. If that doesn't work, give it a default reset (press the reset button until the LED starts to go off for half a second)

To remove a device from your HM... are you using HM-Online, or your own Hivemanager?

With your own HM:

- Remove the AP via GUI:



HOWEVER: You need to do 2 more things:

- Make sure that the redirector entry is changed / deleted (If you don't have your own redirector account, ask your reseller / diestributor)
- Default reset your AP (via GUI / Utilities, or CLI "reset" command, or reset button)

Ideally you do these 2 steps first, then you remove it from your HM.

With HM Online it's easier, the GUI-remove deletes the redirector entry at the same time.

Hi Martyn,


I haven't done this since back in the 3.4 days when HiveUI was still kicking around (I've always found a console cable much easier but to each their own), but if memory serves, the APs will default to a 192.168.1.0/24 address. I want to say it's .10 but I could be mistaken. Worst case set a static ip on your client in the high 100-200 range and just run "nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24" from the terminal/command prompt to determine what address the AP has given itself.

The answer to this question, which I realize is old but others will google it, is: Username: admin  Password: aerohive
