Change access point IP


Access points must not use the factory-set IP address.


This requirement refers to the fact that factory-set IP addresses are well-known, publicly available and documented by manufacturers. If access points use these default IP addresses, it becomes easier for attackers to locate and eventually exploit them. Changing the default IP address makes it more harder for unauthorized individuals or attackers to access specific devices.
