BT‐6800 CELLULAR MODEMS
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 with the modem. Troubleshooting 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.

Download and install the latest version of BlueVue Device Manager from: www.bluetreewireless.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): Setup is complete! The modem should be ready for use as a basic internet access point. For more advanced modem configuration, consult the documentation section of our website www.bluetreewireless.com In BlueVue Device Manager, click on the WAN button Set the Username and Password if provided by the carrier Set the APN as provided by the carrier Click Submit 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.
