With seamless roaming, installation simplicity and sensible pricing, the XWC-1000 is purpose-built to meet the needs of the residential and light commercial custom installation professional.

Installation and Setup
Read Me First
The XWC-1000 Wireless Controller is compatible with several different models of Luxul Access Point, but they must be running firmware version 5 or newer. If your APs are not running version 5, you will need to manually upgrade AP firmware before installing the Wireless Controller. Follow the guide at luxul.com/ap-upgrade to upgrade AP firmware.

Wireless Controller Setup
- Use an Ethernet cable to plug the XWC-1000 Wireless Controller into the network. Do not connect any APs to the network yet.
- To access the Setup Wizard, open your web browser and enter the Wireless Controller’s default 192.168.0.19 IP address in the address field. Log in to the Wireless Controller using the default user name and password:
- Follow the built-in Setup Wizard in the Wireless Controller. The Wizard will direct you to power the APs on at the appropriate time and walk you through completing the setup.
Note: Be sure a DHCP server is present on the network and that all Luxul APs and the XWC-1000 Wireless Controller will share the same subnet. If your network uses a 192.168.0.X IP address scheme, you are ready to start the setup process. If not, you will need to manually change the IP address of your computer to be able to configure the XWC-1000 Wireless Controller so that it is on the same subnet as your network. For help setting the IP address of your operating system, visit luxul.com/ip-addressing.
Default IP: 192.168.0.19
Note: If there is another device on the network already using the 192.168.0.19 address, you’ll need to either temporarily disconnect or reconfigure that other device, or manually configure the Wireless Controller on a separate isolated network.
