First Setup using a Computer or Mobile Device

The diagram below shows two example setups where the ISP provided modem/router is running in a bridged mode and the UDM/UDM-Pro is using a public IP address on the WAN interface. 

udm-pro-topology.png

Setup process when using a mobile device (Bluetooth) or a wired network client to connect to the UDM-Pro. The UDM-Pro can be connected to the ISP modem/router using either the RJ45 WAN port (9) or the SFP+ WAN port (10), depending on your setup.

udm-topology.png

Setup process when using a mobile device (Bluetooth), a wired network client, or a wireless network client to connect to the UDM. The UDM can be connected to the ISP modem/router using the RJ45 WAN port.

Depending on your ISP, the method with which the UDM/UDM-Pro connects to the Internet will differ. Often, ISPs such as Comcast Xfinity and Charter Spectrum will provide you with a cable Modem/Router that you may or may not have access to. Other times, the ISP uses a Fiber ONT or other Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) device. If you are unsure of the Internet connection method that your ISP is using, please contact either the ISP or the building/property manager.

The most ideal setup is when the ISP provides you with a modem/router or CPE device that can be configured in bridged mode. This means that the UDM/UDM-Pro will be able to obtain a public IP address on the WAN interface.

Troubleshooting Internet Connectivity Issues

Refer to the troubleshooting steps below if you are seeing a No Internet Detected message when using the setup process on either the UniFi Network app (Bluetooth) or a compatible browser browser (https://setup.ui.com).

Depending on the configuration method used, the UniFi Network app or browser will show the following for the UDM-Pro:

udm-pro-mobile-no-internet-1-2.png

udm-pro-no-internet.png

And the following for the UDM:

udm-mobile-no-internet-1-2.png

udm-no-internet.png

If the UDM/UDM-Pro does not have Internet connectivity, either of the following options can be the cause:

 tools.png  Possible Cause #1 - ISP provided modem/router is not successfully set to bridged mode.

Try restarting the ISP provided modem/router and select the Try Again option after the device has fully booted. You can also try resetting the ISP modem/router to factory defaults and reconfigure the bridged mode setup. If this does not fix the issue, then consider reaching out to your ISP for more information or to obtain setup documentation/assistance.

 lan.png  Possible Cause #2 - ISP provided DHCP lease is still assigned to previously connected modem/router.

In this case, the ISP has assigned the DHCP lease to the previously connected modem/router and does not reassign it until the next renew cycle. Try restarting the ISP provided modem/router. If this does not fix the issue, then consider reaching out to your ISP to clear and renew the previously assigned lease. Another option is to simply wait until the lease is automatically renewed.

 lock.png  Possible Cause #3 - ISP has locked the Internet access to the previously connected device or router.

In this case, the ISP has locked the Internet access to the MAC address used by the previous device. For example, the old router that was previously connected or the client workstation that was used earlier to test the Internet connection.

This is a common scenario when using Verizon/Frontier FiOS. Consider reaching out to your ISP to clear the previous MAC address entries so that the UDM/UDM-Pro is able to connect.

 settings.png  Possible Cause #4 - ISP connection type does not match the settings configured on the Dream Machine. 

In this case, the ISP uses a different connection type such as PPPoE or static IP assignments instead of DHCP. The UDM/UDM-Pro is configured as a DHCP client on the WAN interface by default, however it is possible to manually change this to PPPoE or a static IP address using the Advanced Internet Setup section below.

Another possibility is that the ISP requires a VLAN to be configured on the WAN interface. It is possible to manually add a VLAN on the UDM/UDM-Pro using the Advanced Internet Setup as well. If this does not fix the issue, then consider reaching out to your ISP to verify if the settings (PPPoE credentials, VLAN or static IP address) you are configuring match the ones in their records.

 support.png  Different Cause - Issue is not caused by any of the above.

If the issue persists after trying the steps above, then consider reaching out to your ISP for troubleshooting assistance. There may be an issue affecting your Internet connection that is not related to the UDM/UDM-Pro.

Advanced Internet Setup

This section describes the steps needed to configure the Advanced Internet Options on the UDM/UDM-Pro. These steps are necessary when your the ISP uses a different connection type such as PPPoE or static IP assignments instead of DHCP. In this case, the UDM/UDM-Pro will display a 'No Internet Detected' message as shown in the Troubleshooting Internet Connectivity Issues section above. The UDM/UDM-Pro is configured as a DHCP client on the WAN interface by default.
