I get wireless Internet connection with device called "air OS". I can access it through the webpage, and from there enabled SSH access.

However, trying to SSH in is not working (using this command):

ssh [ip-address]

It wants the root password from me which I have never defined, and I can't get any help in the company website. I am stuck here and any help would be appreciated.

You couldn't access root account , it can be access only by manufacture company and best way to access it is :

[user@]hostname [command]

No, with the UBNT air OS you are the root user. We use hundreds of these for both repeaters and routers. –  dashboard Apr 11 '13 at 18:58

your problem is that you didnt specify a username, you have to run your ssh command like this:

ssh (your router username)@(your router ip)
