Main ssh commands for Unifi Access Point

I will put here the ssh commands for Ubiquiti WiFi AP that I use.

Connect to AP via ssh

Ubiquiti Device Discovery

If you don't know how to get the IP Address of your APs, you can use the Ubiquiti Device Discovery tool to find it.

Set temporary Network Configuration

To be able to download last firmware, it can be useful to know how to set networks parameters.

UBNT-BZ.v4.3.21# ip addr add 192.168.1.143/24 dev br0
UBNT-BZ.v4.3.21# ip route add default via 192.168.1.254
UBNT-BZ.v4.3.21# echo "nameserver 192.168.1.254" > /etc/resolv.conf
