Subnet Mask
Enter the subnet mask in dotted decimal notation. The default is
Destination IP address
Enter the IP address of the hotspot or service gateway.
Enter the port number that the SP-200E uses when communicating with the hotspot
or service gateway. The hotspot or service gateway must also use the same port
Turn on the encryption to encode the communications between the SP-200E and the
hotspot or service gateway. When you use the encryption, the data is unreadable to
anyone that does not know the secret key. This protects against people stealing
account information or creating illegitimate accounts. To use encryption, you must
also configure the secret key in the following field and on the hotspot or service
Secret key
When you use encryption, enter a code here. You can use up to 8 ASCII characters.
You must also configure the same code as the secret key on the hotspot or service

4.3 Firmware Upload
To upgrade the firmware, you first have to download the latest firmware from www.zyxel.com and then
use the web configurator to upload it to the SP-200E. The firmware will include the device name (SP200E) and end with a .bin extension.
SP-200E User’s Start Guide
After you enter the user name and password and click Firmware Upgrade in the login screen, you need to wait
a moment and click Continue to display the Firmware Upgrade screen.
Specify the name of the firmware file in the Local PC File Path field or click Browse to locate the file and click
Apply to start the file transfer process. The firmware must be a binary file and should have a .bin extension.
Do not close the browser or disconnect or turn off the SP-200E, as interrupting the file
upload process may PERMANENTLY damage the device.
When the upgrade is completed successfully, click Re Login to return to the login screen where you can check
the firmware version.
