How to configure Intesis WMP AC gateways with Ubiquiti Unifi Wi-Fi
Problem: Intesis WMP type interfaces (eg. PA-RC2-WMP-1) can’t see a Ubiquiti Unifi wireless network with WPA encryption.
Solution: With the Ubiquiti Unifi there is a trick.
Before starting the network configuration process, please be aware that there is a difference between 1st and 2nd generation Intesis WMP devices
- 1st generation Intesis devices (MAC address starting with 001D) only support 802.1b mode
- 2nd generation Intesis devices (MAC address starts with CC3F) support 802.1b/g/n
Please log in to your router configuration page and review the configuration settings for 2.4GHz band - see screenshot below.

- If you are using Ubiquiti Wi-Fi it may be necessary to enable and set the 2G "minimum data rate control" to 1Mbps.
