CAT-1 LTE
T
he EN-1000™ is a high-performance, low-cost VPN router designed for Verizon Wireless
LTE public and private networks. This compact IP router provides IP, VPN, firewall,
Ethernet and IP interworking with an embedded Verizon LTE cell module. The EN-1000
supports remote monitoring, video/alarm panel surveillance, business continuity, and
enterprise support.
The EN-1000 router supports cellular data and traditional broadband networks such as DSL,
cable, and Ethernet.
This document provides information to configure the EN-1000 router quickly. Confer with
your network administrator for specific values to used in your network.
Note: The EN-1000™ Quick Installation Guide provides important information for setting up
the EN-1000 hardware. For LED patterns, see the Quick Guide to EN-1000™ LED Codes. You
may download those documents and other EN-1000 documentation at:

Connecting the EN-1000
1
Use an Ethernet cable to connect a management PC to the LAN port on the EN-1000.
2
Power up the EN-1000.
3
On the management PC, open a browser, type the IP address http://192.168.10.1, and
press the Enter key.1

Under the heading Parameters, in the upper part of the Application Configuration
screen, select the Device Mode:
Note: When you select the Device Mode, the screen displays the parameters to
configure for that mode.
a Select Cell Failover for automatic connection via a cellular wireless connection when
the wired connection fails.
❖ The screen displays parameters for this device mode. See Configuring the
EN-1000 for Cell Failover, on page 4.
b Select Cell Router when cellular wireless will be the principal method of connection
to a network.
Note: Configuring the EN-1000 as a cell router also configures the WAN port as a
second LAN port.
The EN-1000 management system’s Status screen may not show IP information for
the WAN port the same way as it does for the LAN port.
❖ The screen displays parameters for this device mode. See Configuring the
EN-1000 as a Cell Router on page 5.
c Select IP Passthrough to send all network IP information from the WAN network or
the cellular network directly to the LAN.
Note: A device connected to the EN-1000’s LAN port will see the IP address of the
cellular port or the WAN port.
❖ The screen displays parameters for this device mode. See Configuring the
EN-1000 for IP Passthrough on page 6.
d Select VRRP Backup to use the EN-1000 as a backup router in a VRRP set.
❖ The screen displays parameters for this device mode. See Configuring the
EN-1000 for VRRP Backup on page 7.

Using the EN-1000’s Configuration
Make sure you have selected the Save & Apply button (in the lower right corner of the
screen). That saves the configuration, reboots the EN-1000, and displays the log-in
screen (recall the EN-1000 Log-In Screen shown on page 1).
11 When the log-in screen is displayed, log in again. (If you changed the password, use
the new password.)
❖ The Status Overview screen is displayed. This screen provides quick information
about the connections in the EN-1000.
EN-1000 Status Overview Screen
12 If you need to reconfigure the device mode (for example, to change the DHCP Server
setting), select the Quickstart tab.
❖ The Application Configuration screen is displayed. The screen shows the current
configuration parameters.
Note: The EN-1000 reboots only after the initial configuration (when the Save &
Apply button is selected). Later configurations also use the Save & Apply button,
but they do not require reboot.
Returning to the Default Configuration
!
Caution: If your EN-1000’s configuration is not correct, try to reconfigure the EN-1000
before returning to the default configuration. Do not perform the action described here
unless there is no other way to resolve problems with the EN-1000 configuration.
1
Power up the unit and wait for 2.5 minutes.
2
On the front of the chassis, insert the end of a paper clip into the hole marked Reset.
Note: The paper clip will stop when it reaches the Reset button.
3
Press the paper clip in slightly and hold the button in, while watching the Sys Status
LED (also on the front of the chassis).
Note: As you hold the Reset button in, the Sys Status LED will flash slowly one
time, then again a second time, then (possibly) a third time. Then it will flash fast.

When the Sys Status LED starts to flash fast, release the Reset button.
❖
At this point, the Cell LED and Net Status LED should flash at the same time.
This indicates that the unit is resetting back to factory defaults.
5
Wait one (1) full minute; then log into the EN™ router’s management system (the GUI
menu) via a web browser.
6
When the Status Overview screen is displayed, select the Quickstart tab (returning
to step 5 on page 2) and proceed again with the EN-1000’s quick configuration.
