Quick Start Guide
1. Download and install the latest version of BlueVue Device Manager from www.redlion.net.
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):
2. Click on the DIAG button located at the top left to navigate to the
Modem Diagnostic screen. Click on the Refresh button at the bottom and check the phone number reported by the modem under
Modem Identification: it should match the MDN provided by SaskTel.
Troubleshooting: If the above does not occur, then the modem most
likely has no account. Contact the wireless service provider who provided you with the account and ask them to confirm that the phone
number and MIN/MSID assigned correspond to the modem's ESN (electronic serial number), and that the account is ready to be used.
3. 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
Troubleshooting: If BlueVue displays “Detecting Modem at
192.168.0.1” indefinitely, then:
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
• Make sure the modem is powered on.
• Close all other network connections (such as WiFi)
For more advanced modem configuration, consult the support section
on our website. Visit our support page at www.redlion.net to access
the modem’s documentation, as well as configuration help, troubleshooting and firmware & software updates. Or contact Technical Support at 1-877-432-9908 or support@redlion.net.
• Set your computer to obtain an IP address automatically
INSTALLATION AND HAZARDOUS AREA WARNINGS
• 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.
4.
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: 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.
5.
The modem should be ready for use as a basic internet access point.
