Preface
Important
Notice
Due to the nature of wireless communications, transmission and reception of data
can never be guaranteed. Data may be delayed, corrupted (i.e., have errors) or be
totally lost. Although significant delays or losses of data are rare when wireless
devices such as the Sierra Wireless modem are used in a normal manner with a
well-constructed network, the Sierra Wireless modem should not be used in
situations where failure to transmit or receive data could result in damage of any
kind to the user or any other party, including but not limited to personal injury,
death, or loss of property. Sierra Wireless accepts no responsibility for damages
of any kind resulting from delays or errors in data transmitted or received using
the Sierra Wireless modem, or for failure of the Sierra Wireless modem to
transmit or receive such data.
Safety and
Hazards
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in areas where blasting is in progress,
where explosive atmospheres may be present, near medical equipment, near life
support equipment, or any equipment which may be susceptible to any form of
radio interference. In such areas, the Sierra Wireless modem MUST BE
POWERED OFF. The Sierra Wireless modem can transmit signals that could
interfere with this equipment.
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in any aircraft, whether the aircraft is
on the ground or in flight. In aircraft, the Sierra Wireless modem MUST BE
POWERED OFF. When operating, the Sierra Wireless modem can transmit
signals that could interfere with various onboard systems.
Note: Some airlines may permit the use of cellular phones while the aircraft is on the
ground and the door is open. Sierra Wireless modems may be used at this time.
The driver or operator of any vehicle should not operate the Sierra Wireless
modem while in control of a vehicle. Doing so will detract from the driver or
operator's control and operation of that vehicle. In some states and provinces,
operating such communications devices while in control of a vehicle is an offence.

Liability
The information in this manual is subject to change without notice and does not
represent a commitment on the part of Sierra Wireless. SIERRA WIRELESS AND
ITS AFFILIATES SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL
DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, GENERAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL,
PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,

ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY SIERRA WIRELESS
PRODUCT, EVEN IF SIERRA WIRELESS AND/OR ITS AFFILIATES HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR THEY ARE
FORESEEABLE OR FOR CLAIMS BY ANY THIRD PARTY.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Sierra Wireless and/or its

product, regardless of the number of events, occurrences, or claims giving rise to
liability, be in excess of the price paid by the purchaser for the Sierra Wireless

devices from accessing your Wi-Fi network (black list), or to create a list of only
those devices that are allowed to connect to your Wi-Fi network (white list), based
on each device’s MAC address.
Only one list at a time can be active, either a Black List or a White List.
Black List
To block devices from connecting to your Wi-Fi network (black list):
1. On the homepage, click the Advanced Settings icon (
).
2. Go to Wi-Fi > MAC Filter.
3. In the drop-down menu, select Block all in list.
4. Either:
· Enter the MAC address of the device and click Add, or
· Click List of connected devices and select the box beside the device in the
Block column.
5. Click Save.
To unblock a device so it can connect to your Wi-Fi network:

7: Regulatory and Safety Information
Notice
Because of the nature of wireless communications, transmission and
reception of data can never be guaranteed. Data may be delayed,
corrupted (that is, have errors), or be totally lost. Although significant
delays or losses of data are rare when wireless devices such as the
AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot are used in a normal manner with a
well-constructed network, the AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot should
not be used in situations where failure to transmit or receive data
could result in damage of any kind to the user or any other party,
including but not limited to personal injury, death, or loss of property.
Sierra Wireless and its affiliates accept no responsibility for damages
of any kind resulting from delays or errors in data transmitted or
received using the AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot, or for failure of the
AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot to transmit or receive such data.
Safety and Hazards
The mobile hotspot MUST BE POWERED OFF in all areas that may
be susceptible to radio interference, in particular:
•
Prohibited areas
Obey all signs and notices and follow all rules and regulations.
Power off the mobile hotspot when instructed to do so or when
you suspect that it may cause interference or danger.
•
In areas where blasting is in progress
•
Where explosive atmospheres may be present
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are not always
clearly marked. Such areas include gas stations, fuel depots,
chemical transfer or storage facilities, areas where blasting is in
progress, areas where the air contains chemicals or particles
such as grain, dust, or metal powders, and any other area where
you would normally be advised to turn off your cellular phone or
vehicle engine.
•
Near medical or life-support equipment
Medical equipment may be susceptible to any form of radio interference. In such areas the mobile hotspot can transmit signals
that could interfere with this equipment.
•
On board aircraft
In addition to Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) requirements,
many airline regulations state that you must suspend wireless
operations before boarding an aircraft. The mobile hotspot is
capable of transmitting signals that could interfere with various
onboard systems and controls.
71
AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot User Guide
Failure to observe this instruction may lead to suspension or denial of cellular
telephone services to the offender, legal action, or both.
Some airlines may permit the use of cellular phones while the aircraft is on the
ground and the door is open. The mobile hotspot may be used normally at this
time.
•
While operating a vehicle
The driver or operator of any vehicle should not use a wireless data device
while in control of a vehicle. Doing so detracts from the driver or operator's
ability to control and operate the vehicle. In some countries, using such communications devices while in control of a vehicle is an offence.
Caution: Unauthorized modifications or changes not expressly approved by Sierra
Wireless, Inc. could void compliance with regulatory rules, and thereby your authority to
use this device.
Proper Battery Use and Disposal
Note: Improper battery use may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard.
To ensure safe and responsible battery use:
•
Do not open, disassemble, puncture, crush, bend, or shred.
•
Do not expose to water or other liquids, fire, explosion, or other hazards.
•
Use the battery only in the mobile hotspot.
•
If using with a charger, use only the charger supplied with the mobile hotspot.
•
Do not short circuit the battery.
•
When replacing a battery, use the same model of battery that was supplied
with the mobile hotspot.
•
Follow local regulations when disposing of a used battery.
•
Avoid dropping the mobile hotspot or the battery. If dropped and you suspect
damage, take it to a service center for inspection.
Regulatory Information for North America
Caution: The AirCard 763S Mobile Hotspot must be 1 cm or more from users during
operation, to satisfy FCC / IC RF exposure requirements.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.
72
Regulatory and Safety Information
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help
