Agent Configuration - Convert Agent from Wireless to Wired

Once an agent is configured as wireless, it will remain as a wireless agent. If you would like to reset the agent and convert it to wired, follow these steps:
 

For NetBeez branded agents:

  1. Remove the wireless card and unplug the Ethernet cable.
  2. When the agent appears as disconnected on the dashboard, delete the agent from the dashboard.
  3. Plug a mouse into any of the USB ports for 90 seconds.
  4. Reboot the device and unplug the mouse.

 For RPi 3/3+

  1. Run the following command on your RPi using an ssh session:
    • curl -L -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/netbeez/agent-installation/master/agent_setup.sh;
      sudo bash agent_setup.sh --modify-interface
    • When prompted, choose to disable the wireless card.
  2. Unplug the agent from the network.
  3. When the agent appears as disconnected on the dashboard, delete the agent from the dashboard.
  4. Reboot the device and plug in the ethernet cable.

Notes:
  • You can convert any wireless agent to wired, but if you do not have a license for an additional wired agent, it will not connect to your dashboard.
  • When the agent is reset from wireless to wired, both of its interfaces are converted to DHCP.
