Primary Antenna
The primary antenna connection on the 882-EVDO modem is a female connector, therefore you
must purchase an antenna with a SMA male connector. Do not select a SMA antenna with
“reverse polarity” or RP-Male. When using a direct mount or “rubber duck” antenna, choose the
antenna specific to your band requirements. Mounting options and cable lengths are user’s
choice and application specific. The AUX antenna connector is installed standard on the 882EVDO modem and can be used for Diversity or True GPS.
The diversity port on the device supports three bands, Cellular (850MHZ), PCS(1900MHZ), and
GPS(1575MHZ). Connect a dual band cellular antenna to this port to implement RX diversity on
the unit and increase receive sensitivity on the cellular network. Connect a GPS antenna, with an
average gain >-5dBi, if using the GPS functionality. If both RX diversity and GPS are required,
install a Cellular/GPS combo antenna.
SECTION 3 – GETTING STARTED
Page 14 of 62
The 882-EVDO modem can be configured via HTML web pages. You will need a CDMA Cellular
account. For TCP/IP please request a packet data account with Mobile IP and optionally Static IP or
Simple IP (SIP). This is carrier dependent.
The modem is configured with default settings and is ready to be configured via HTML. You will need
to activate the modem with your carrier to start moving data; however you will still be able to
access the homepage of the unit and see configurations. Make sure auto-connect is disabled(See
Section 6 – Dial Settings). The default settings are programmed for most operations.

Figure 3.4: 882-EVDO Home Page
The PPP status on the Home page will show DOWN because the new device is not provisioned. Also,
the MDN/MTN or MSID/IMSI (MIN) lines may show an invalid phone number indicating the unit has
not been provisioned. The modem must first be provisioned with the specific carrier before
connecting with the cellular network.
Page 17 of 62
SECTION 4 – VERIZON WIRELESS PROVISIONING INFORMATION (OTASP)
When a new modem is powered up for the first time, most of the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI (MIN)
information is blank or has outdated PRL for that geographical area that should be updated. In order
to use the modem, it must be activated by the specific carrier once the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI
(MIN) have been provided from the carrier for the ESN of the unit needing activation.
Verizon features Over-The-Air Service Provisioning (OTASP) which allows the cellular provider to
provision the modem.
Verizon Wireless Subscribers
 Provisioning must occur in a non-roaming area of the Verizon network with a medium to
strong signal strength.
 Select Provisioning from the side menu bar.
 Confirm the OTASP command reads *22899.
 Click the OTASP button.
If unsuccessful, follow the steps below to enter the information manually. Periodically, you should
locally or remotely make sure to click on the OTASP button to ensure the PRL is updated. In some
cases this may happen automatically by the carrier.
Figure 4.1: Verizon Provisioning Page
Page 18 of 62
Manual-Entry Activation
 If provisioning must occur in a roaming area, make sure to have a medium to strong signal
strength because manual-entry activation will be required.
 Select Provisioning from the side menu bar.
 Input the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI (MIN) given by your provider
 Put 6 0’s (000000) for the unlock code
 Click the Write MDN/MSID button.

SECTION 5 – SPRINT PROVISIONING INFORMATION (OMA-DM)
When a new modem is powered up for the first time, most of the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI (MIN)
information is blank or has outdated PRL for that geographical area that should be updated. In order
to use the modem, it must be activated by the specific carrier once the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI
(MIN) have been provided from the carrier for the ESN of the unit needing activation.
Sprint features Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA-DM) which allows the cellular
provider to provision the modem.
After the account is activated by Sprint, the device will auto-provision after power is applied to the
device for the first time. First, verify on the Home page the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI/MIN are in
the default mode. Then after 3-4 minutes, check again that the MDN/MTN and MSID/IMSI/MIN are
populated with the numbers provided by the carrier. Once this is complete, you can move on to the
next section. If auto-provisioning doesn’t occur, push the OMA-DM button to provision. If both of
these are unsuccessful, follow the steps below to deactivate auto-provisioning and enter the
information manually.

Ethernet IP Address:
This sets the IP address of this device and is the address used to access the configuration pages. If
the IP address changes you will have to re-enter the new IP address in your browser to access the
configuration pages. The default IP is 192.168.1.50 and should be changed for security purposes.
Ethernet Subnet Mask:
This sets the subnet mask for the LAN side of the modem to the device. The default subnet mask is
set to 255.255.255.0.
LAN Masquerade:
When enabled the LandCell directs all Ethernet traffic coming from the tethered Ethernet device to
the Ethernet IP address of the LandCell. This should be enabled when the tethered device is an
Ethernet server, and it does not have the ability to point Ethernet traffic to a gateway.
DNS Resolving
DNS Auto:
Selecting Enable will allow the servers set as DNS Server 1 or 2 to automatically resolve domain
names to the DNS IP addresses assigned by the cellular network. These servers communicate with
name servers by sending DNS queries and heeding DNS responses. Selecting Disable will not allow
DNS Server 1 or 2 to resolve domain names to prevent unauthorized users from web surfing.
DNS Server 1 IP Address:
The Ethernet IP address of the preferred DNS server. The default address is 192.168.1.50, the same
as the LAN Ethernet IP Address of the modem. If the LAN Ethernet ID Address changes, the DNS
Server 1 address will automatically change to the same.
DNS Server 2 IP Address:
Ethernet address of the alternate DNS server. The default is set to 0.0.0.0.
DHCP Configuration
DHCP:
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol; a protocol used by client devices that are connected to the
LAN port of this device to automatically obtain an IP address assigned by this device. Selecting
Enable will configure this device to assign IP addresses to client devices taken from a pool specified
by the values entered in DHCP start range and DHCP end range. Selecting Disable will turn off
this DHCP server functionality to prevent unauthorized users from getting an IP address assignment.

Inbound Port:
This sets the external port number for incoming requests. To avoid conflict, never reuse any of the
same ports as described in the DMZ section above.
Destination IP Address:
The IP address of the tethered device for which the port specified in the inbound port field will be
forwarded to.
Destination Port:
This sets the LAN port number used when forwarding to the destination IP address.
As an example, if it were required that all incoming addresses using port 81 and 8081 be routed to
IP address 192.168.1.222 on port 80 then the following information would be entered.
First, set the mapping name to 1, set the protocol to all, set the input IP address to 0.0.0.0 and the
incoming port to 81, set the destination IP address to 192.168.1.222 and the destination port to 80,
then click the ADD button. This will set the first entry in the table as Item 1.
To route port 8081 as well, enter a mapping name of 2, set the protocol to all, set the input IP
address to 0.0.0.0 and the incoming port to 8081, then set the destination IP address and port to
the same values as before and click the ADD button. A second entry will be created as item 2,
shown in Figure 9.2 below.
Figure 9.2: Port Forwarding Mapping Table example 1
As a second example, add the requirement to forward information from IP address 66.94.234.13,
port 8083 to IP address 192.168.1.223, port 8083 using the tcp protocol.
Enter a mapping name of 3, set the protocol to tcp, set the input IP address to 66.94.234.13 and the
incoming port to 8083, then set the destination IP address to 192.168.1.223 and the destination
port to 8083, then click the ADD button. A third entry will be created as item 3, shown in Figure 9.3
below.

SECTION 10 – DYNAMIC DNS
Selecting Router from the left menu bar, then the Dynamic DNS tab, brings up the dynamic DNS
configuration page. Dynamic DNS is a system which allows the domain name data of a computer
with a varying (dynamic) IP addresses held in a name server to be updated in real time in order to
make it possible to establish connections to that machine without the need to track the actual IP
address themselves at all times. A number of providers offer Dynamic DNS services ("DDNS"), free
or for a charge. For example, a free service provided by NO-IP allows users to setup between one
and five host names on a domain name provided by NO-IP. No-IP is the default DNS service.
NOTE: Dynamic DNS is compatible with the NO-IP service; it is the customer’s responsibility to
verify other Dynamic DNS services are NOIP compatible.
Figure 10.1: Dynamic DNS configuration page
Dynamic DNS:
Selecting Enable will allow the modem to provide the selected service dynamic IP address
information. Selecting Disable will stop any IP information from being sent to the selected service.

carrier assigned IP address. It is recommended to set this interval as long as necessary. Note: Each
update is considered a data call by the cellular provider and could deplete low usage data plan
minutes.
This may not be necessary because every time the IP address is changed, or a reboot occurs, the
device sends out a notification. This can then be usually set at zero.
The SAVE button must be pressed for changes to take effect.

Incoming Friendly IP Address:
This specifies a remote IP address that is allowed to access the modem. A wildcard IP address of
0.0.0.0 allows all remote IP address to access the modem.
Incoming Port:
Sets the port number used to forward incoming traffic to the serial port. Inbound traffic with this
port will be forwarded to the serial port in client mode.
Outgoing Port:
Sets the port number used to send outbound traffic from the serial port. These will be packetized
and sent to an external IP address and the port number specified.
PAD Mode:
Select buttons to set the PAD mode of the modem as a Server or Client.
Server mode waits for inbound TCP connections from remote client or UDP data being sent to the
external modem’s IP address. For example, server mode can be used for mobile termination calls.
When in server mode, it is possible for the connected serial device to make an outbound TCP or UDP
connection when an AT Command is issued (remote IP address: port number, e.g.
ATD*166.23.42.10:5000).
Client mode keeps an always-on TCP connection to a remote server or sends all UDP to the IP
address and port number specified. For example, client mode can be used for mobile origination
calls.
Pad Protocol:
Sets the data protocol of the PAD to TCP or UDP data. If you have set PAD Mode as server you
can choose either to support either type of data packets.
TCP Client Keep Alive:
When in client mode and enabled, TCP Keep Alive packets will be sent from the client to the server
periodically in order to detect a broken connection. The modem will automatically try to re-establish
the connection if necessary. Changing this setting will affect the use of TCP Keep Alive on the next
client session. It will not affect an existing session.
TCP Client Keep Alive Time:
Time in seconds between keep alive cycles. A keep alive cycle will consist of one or more keep alive
probes separated by the keep alive interval. If a keep alive time has no response the unit will send
probes.
TCP Client Keep Alive Probes:
Number of keep alive packets that must fail before connection is considered closed.
TCP Client Keep Alive Intvl:
Time in seconds after which a keep alive packet is considered to be failed (if not acknowledged).
Another packet is sent at this time if TCP Client Keep Alive Probes limit has not been reached.
Server Session Closed On:
This is only available if PAD mode is Server. This option selects under which conditions the server
will terminate an established connection. (If the termination of the TCP current connection was not
received properly by the modem then the connection will hang until the modem reboots or one of
the two below methods is invoked.)
New Client: If a different client attempts to connect, it will be successful and the current client
will be forcibly disconnected, without any warning.
Page 45 of 62
Timeout: A new client will be accepted only after a specified timeout. The duration of the
timeout is specified by the Inactivity timeout, or the Hard timeout, or a combination of both.
The default value is New Client.
Server Inactivity Timeout:
Time after which the current connection with Client will be terminated without warning. This time
starts over again each time the Client sends data to the server. This parameter is ignored if the
session closes on New Client. If PAD protocol is tcp, the timeout is specified in minutes. If udp, the
timeout is specified in seconds. The valid range for either is 1-65535. 0 will disable this timer.
If both Inactivity Timeout and Hard Timeout are enabled, (neither is 0), then a client session will be
terminated when either timeout is met. In this case, the value for Hard Timeout must exceed the
value for Inactivity Timeout. If the Inactivity Timeout is met, the client will be terminated. If the
Hard Timeout is exceeded without meeting the Inactivity Timeout, the client will be terminated by
the Hard Timeout.
Server Hard Timeout:
Time after which the current connection with Client will be terminated without warning. This is a
fixed time from the initial connection, no matter how much or how often the Client sends data to
the server. This parameter is ignored if the session closes on New Client. If PAD protocol is tcp, the
timeout is specified in minutes. If udp, the timeout is specified in seconds. The valid range for either
is 1-65535. 0 will disable this timer.
If both Inactivity Timeout and Hard Timeout are enabled, (neither is 0), then a client session will be
terminated when either timeout is met. In this case, the value for Hard Timeout must exceed the
value for Inactivity Timeout. If the Inactivity Timeout is met, the client will be terminated. If the
Hard Timeout is exceeded without meeting the Inactivity Timeout, the client will be terminated by
the Hard Timeout.
PAD Log:
When enabled, as data passes through the PAD, a copy is stored in a log file located on the modem
at /tmp/padlog. The log will stop saving data when full and data is lost at modem reset. This is only
used for debugging purposes and isn’t normally accessible by the user.
The SAVE button must be pressed for changes to take effect.

Destination Address:
User may enter an accessible IP address or URL that will respond to a ping command.
Secondary Address:
User may enter an accessible IP address or URL that will respond to a ping command. This address
will be used if the entered number of consecutive ping failures using the first address is reached.
Periodic Ping Timer:
User may enter an interval in increments of 10 seconds. The modem will ping the destination at that
interval. Enter 0 to disable this feature.
Fail Count:
The modem will reset if the number of consecutive ping failures is equal to or greater than this entry
and the secondary address is being used. Otherwise the modem will switch from the first address to
the secondary address for the ping test.
PPP Data Usage Estimates
This section tracks the data received from and transmitted to the cellular network. This is a tool that
may be used to estimate network usage. These totals are tracked by the router. Your carrier
maintains separate statistics from which your billing is determined. One way to use this tool is to
track usage over a fairly short period of typical usage. The total then can be extrapolated to
estimate longer time periods. This router updates these statistics once approximately every 30
seconds. Press the Clear button to reset the totals to 0.
Rx Bytes:
The total number of bytes received by the modem from the cell network. All statistics will be cleared
automatically if this count exceeds 1 billion (1,000,000,000).
Rx Packets:
The total number of TCP and UDP packets received by the modem from the cell network.
Rx Errors:
The number of corrupted TCP and UDP packets received by the modem from the cell network.
Rx Packets Dropped:
The number of TCP and UDP packets received by the modem from the cell network that were not
accepted. This may occur due to memory or throughput problems.
Page 50 of 62
Tx Bytes:
The total number of bytes transmitted by the modem to the cell network. All statistics will be cleared
automatically if this count exceeds 1 billion (1,000,000,000).
Tx Packets:
The total number of TCP and UDP packets transmitted by the modem to the cell network.
Tx Errors:
The number of corrupted TCP and UDP packets received by the modem that were meant to be
transmitted on the cell network.
Tx Packets Dropped:
The number of TCP and UDP packets received by the modem for transmit to the cell network that
was not accepted. This may occur due to memory or throughput problems.
