strength, while slowly rotating and tilting the EXPLORER 510 in the direction of the
satellite.
4. Push the power button briefly to accept when you have obtained the highest possible
signal strength (or, if you are using the web interface, click Accept).
The EXPLORER 510 now starts to establish a connection to the BGAN network.
CAUTION! After accepting the signal strength, keep the minimum safety
distance of 0.6 m from the antenna front face. The antenna may radiate
microwave power as soon as the signal strength is accepted.
Audio assisted pointing
You can set up whether or not you want a sound to indicate the signal level during pointing
(Audio assisted pointing). The sound pattern is as follows:
•
Poor signal strength:
•
•
Good signal strength:
•••••••••••••••••••
•
Optimum signal strength:

Chapter 3: Operation
To configure the connected equipment for PPPoE
How to configure your equipment depends on the type of equipment. Refer to the user
documentation of the equipment. As a minimum, you need to configure the following
parameters in your equipment in order to make PPPoE work with the terminal:
•
User name and password.
The user name and password can be left blank (or insert user name: void and password:
void). Then the registration on the Access Point is most commonly done in such a way that
the data connection is established with a dynamic IP address from the airtime provider.
To request a static IP (if subscribed to) from the Access Point you must type in the user
name and password from your airtime subscription.
Note for MAC OS: User name and password are required. Use user name void and
password void. This works for some ISPs. Contact your airtime provider for further
information.
•
For setups that have a check box for “Enable LCP extensions”, deselect this.
No further configuration is needed to make a Standard IP data connection to the Internet.
See the table below for information on how to configure specific services for your PPPoE
connection.
If you need a certain service, for example a Streaming class, you must type in a specified text
string when asked for a service name. The following table shows the service names supported
by the terminal.
Text to type in the Service

the following format for activating and deactivating a connection:
•
ACTIVATE <name of network user group >:<name of profile> <password>
•
DEACTIVATE <name of network user group>:<name of profile> <password>
• <name of network user group>: default group
• <name of profile> standard (presently, only standard is supported)
• <password> Defined in the web interface under Advanced > Remote management.
Example: To activate a connection for remote management with the standard data
connection and password=1234567890, send an SMS to the terminal with the
text: ACTIVATE default:standard 1234567890
If you have selected SMS confirmation, you receive a response including the IP address to use
when you access the terminal from a remote location (see the next two sections).
Example: A confirmation SMS after sending an activation SMS may look like this:
Activation: Succeeded,. IP 161.30.181.31
Remote access with the web interface
Note
When using remote access, the web interface may take a long time to load the pages
if your Internet connection speed is slow.

enable or disable the use of a SIM PIN on page 57.
If a smartphone, tablet or computer is connected when you start up the terminal, you can
access the web interface and enter the SIM PIN here.
To enter the SIM PIN
If your SIM card requires a PIN and the PIN has not yet been entered, you must enter it before
you can make calls or access the Internet. Until you have entered the PIN you cannot access
the network, but you can still configure your terminal.
To enter the PIN, do as follows:
1. Access the web interface.
If the terminal needs a PIN, a popup window tells you to enter PIN.
2. Type in your PIN and click OK.
When pointing is completed and the correct PIN is entered, you are ready to make calls or
access the Internet.
To cancel the SIM PIN
If you select Cancel when you are asked for a PIN, you can use the web interface as normal,
but you will not be able to access the network to make calls or data sessions. Only emergency
calls will be possible, and only if the network allows it.

2. At Internet connection mode, select Modem mode or Router mode. Router mode
is the default setting and is recommended for most purposes.
• Select Router mode if one or more computers are connected and the EXPLORER 510
should act as a router. When Router mode is selected, the EXPLORER 510 uses the builtin NAT module for making the necessary address translations.
• Select Modem mode if only one computer is connected, and the EXPLORER 510

3. Under Local IP address, type in a new IP address if you want to change the Local IP
address of the terminal. This is the address used to access the web interface. The default IP
address is 192.168.0.1.
Note
If the EXPLORER 510 is in modem mode and connected to the BGAN network
(see previous step), you cannot use this address to access the web
interface, because the network dynamically assigns the IP address for the
EXPLORER 510.
So to access the web interface in modem mode, you must do one of the
following:
•
Access the web interface when there is no data connection on the BGAN
network
•
Check the IP address of your connected equipment and add 1 to the last
number. This is the IP address to access the web interface. (See the drawing
in the previous page).
4. To enable automatic activation of your data connection, select Automatic activation.
• When you select automatic activation and connect to the WLAN interface, the data
connection is automatically established as soon as the EXPLORER 510 and its BGAN
connection are ready.
Note
You are charged for the data transferred. You may want to disable automatic
updates in your WLAN device to avoid unnecessary charges.
• When you disable automatic activation (default), you can control the data connection
manually from the startup page  .
5. Under DHCP, select DHCP Enabled (recommended for most purposes).
• If you select DHCP Enabled, the terminal assigns dynamic IP addresses to devices
connected to the terminal.
• If disable DHCP, you need to set up a static IP address in the connected device.
1. Note that in modem mode the local IP address is assigned by the external network (see drawing
in the beginning of this section), so when the terminal is connected to the external network you
cannot access the web interface with the usual local IP address. When the external network
is disconnected, the local IP address falls back to the address mentioned in step 3. (next step).

The new package should now appear as a new tile on the startup page.
To change the APN for a connection package
By default a connection package is set to use no IP Header compression and to use the APN
(Access Point Name) from the SIM card. This is suitable for most applications.
Note
It is recommended to leave IP Header compression disabled. This means that the
data packets are transmitted more reliably with less data loss. However, you can select
IP Header compression with the risk of less stability.
If you want to use a different APN, do as follows:
1. Click  in the right side of the tile with the connection package that you want to change.
2. Select Parameters.
3. Next to APN, select the source of the APN.
• SIM default (default and recommended setting): The APN is taken from the SIM card.
• Network assigned: The APN is assigned from the network.
• User defined: APNs are provided from the Airtime Provider. Type in the APN next to
User defined name.
4. If your APN uses a password, type in the User name and Password provided from the
Airtime Provider.

To ensure accurate display of the battery capacity, you can run a “learning cycle” at first time
use. The learning cycle must be performed between 20°C and 30°C.
Do as follows:
1. Fully charge the battery.
2. Remove external power and fully discharge the battery:
Use the EXPLORER 510 and/or leave it on until it turns off automatically. This way the
EXPLORER 510 “learns” the complete capacity of the battery. Note that it may take several
hours to discharge the battery if it is not in use.
3. Recharge the battery.

300 GHz including the frequencies used for communications signals (radio, television,
cell-phone and satellite transmissions) or radar signals.
S
SIM
Subscriber Identity Module. The SIM provides secure storing of the key identifying a
mobile phone service subscriber but also subscription information, preferences and
storage of text messages.
SIP
Session Initiation Protocol. An application-layer control (signaling) protocol for creating,
modifying, and terminating sessions with one or more participants. Used e.g. for Internet
telephony.
U
USB
Universal Serial Bus. A specification to establish communication between devices and a
host controller (usually personal computers). USB is intended to replace many varieties of
serial and parallel ports. USB can connect computer peripherals such as mice, keyboards,
digital cameras, printers, personal media players, flash drives, and external hard drives.
UTC
Coordinated Universal Time. The International Atomic Time (TAI) with leap seconds
added at irregular intervals to compensate for the Earth’s slowing rotation. Leap seconds
are used to allow UTC to closely track UT1, which is mean solar time at the Royal
Observatory, Greenwich.
V
VPN
Virtual Private Network. A network that is constructed by using public wires to connect
nodes. You can create networks using the Internet for transporting data, using security
mechanisms so that only authorized users can access the network.
W
WLAN
98-143082-A
Wireless LAN. A wireless computer network that links two or more devices using a wireless
distribution method (often spread-spectrum or OFDM radio) within a limited area such as
a home, school, computer laboratory, or office building.
