FortiAP 221B Unable to direct connect to default IP



I have a few old 221B's that I wanted to use to set up a temp wifi network. I connect to them direct with my PC. I can get the login page, and admin with no password (default) will attempt to go to the main page, then kicks right back out to the login screen. I have 3 units, they all do the same, they have all been reset to default.  Java and flash have been set to allow. Browsers are Chrome and Safari. 


Any ideas?

First of all, did you set a static IP on your PC withing Then accessed it, right?

Did you try admin/admin? If the firmware is v5.0.9 or older, it's admin/admin. 5.0.10 or older admin/(no password).


Hi I have the same problem and done all the steps you have said but nothing is changing. Any ideas?
