MobilityPro™ BT-5800 Series
Wireless Modem
1 Setup a data account for the modem
Contact your cellular provider (carrier) and request a data
account. The carrier should provide you with a SIM card to
insert into the modem, along with the APN/username/password
for data connectivity.
2 Insert the SIM card
1. Locate the SIM slot on the right side of the modem.
2. insert the card with its cut side facing forward and on the left
3. Using the tip of a pen, push it in until it clicks.
Troubleshooting
If BlueVue displays “Detecting Modem at 192.168.0.1”
indefinitely, then:
 Make sure the modem is powered on
 Check the Ethernet Link LED on the modem. If it’s off, it
usually means you have a problem with the Ethernet cable or
with your computer’s network card.
 Close all other network connections (such as WiFi)
 Set your computer to obtain an IP address automatically
5 Confirm that the modem is acquiring a cellular signal
The Signal LED should be on or flashing, indicating that the
modem has a signal. BlueVue Device Manager displays signal
information in the top right of its window; a minimum of 1 bar is
required to connect to the carrier with the modem.
Troubleshooting
3 Wiring and power-up
1. Connect the modem to your computer using a standard
Ethernet cable. Alternatively, the RS-232 or USB ports can
be used for setup.
2. Connect the cellular antenna to the Antenna connector.
3. Plug in the power connector to power-up the modem.
4 Start BlueVue Device Manager Software
1. Download and install the latest version of BlueVue Device
Manager from: www.sixnet.com.
2. When launched, it will attempt to connect to 192.168.0.1 by
default, once connected to the modem the Modem
Diagnostic window will open (Note that 192.168.0.1
connects to the Ethernet cable. To connect to the USB port
use 192.168.111.1):
If the Signal LED is off, then there may be an issue with the
antenna or cellular coverage might be too low in your current
location.
6 Set the WAN data connection
1. In BlueVue Device Manager, click on the WAN button
2. Set the Username and Password if provided by the carrier
3. Set the APN as provided by the carrier
4. Click Submit
5. Confirm the modem has successfully connected to the
cellular network:
 The WAN LED will be on or flashing
 In BlueVue, click the DIAG button, the WAN IP
should indicate the IP address assigned to the
modem by the cellular network.
Setup is complete!
Setup is Complete!
The modem should be ready for use as a basic internet access
point. For more advanced modem configuration, consult the
