2. Configuring Wireless WAN Mobile broadband Router
2.1. Installation Considerations
The Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router allows you access your network using a
wireless connection, from virtually anywhere within its operating range. Keep in mind
however, that the number, thickness, and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the
wireless signals must pass through, may limit this range.
Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials used, and background RF (radio
frequency) noise in your home or business.
To maximize your wireless range, please follow these guidelines:
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband
Router and other network devices to a minimum. Each wall or ceiling can reduce the
Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters).
Note: The same considerations apply to your broadband EVDO connection.
2. Keep your product aware from electrical devices (such as microwaves, air conditioners,
and televisions) that emit large quantities of RFI (Radio Frequency Interference).

3. Troubleshooting
This section provides an overview of common issues, and possible solutions for the installation
and operation of the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router.
1. Unable to access the Configuration Menu when I use my computer to configure the
router. Why?
Note: It is recommended that you use an Ethernet connection to configure the
Ensure that the Ethernet LED on the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router is ON.
If the LED is NOT ON, check to see if the cable for the Ethernet connection is securely inserted.
Note: Ensure that the IP Address is in the same range and subnet as the Wireless WAN
Mobile Broadband Router. The IP Address of the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router
is 192.168.123.254. All the computers on the network must have a unique IP Address within
the same range (e.g., 192.168.123.x). Any computers that have identical IP Addresses will
not be visible on the network. All computers must also have the same subnet mask (e.g.,
255.255.255.0).
Do a Ping test to make sure that the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router is responding.
Go to Start > Run.
1:Type cmd.
2:Press Enter.
3:Type “ping 192.168.123.254”. A successful ping shows four replies.
Note: If you have changed the default IP Address, ensure you ping the correct IP
Address assigned to the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router.
Ensure that your Ethernet Adapter is working properly, and that all network drivers are installed
properly.
Note: Network adapter names will vary depending on your specific adapter. The installation
steps listed below are applicable for all network adapters.
1. Go to Start > My Computer > Properties.
2. Select the Hardware Tab.
3. Click Device Manager.
4. Double-click on “Network Adapters”.
5. Right-click on Wireless Cardbus Adapter, or your specific network adapter.
6. Select Properties to ensure that all drivers are installed properly.
7. Look under Device Status to see if the device is working properly.
8. Click “OK”.
2: Why my wireless client can NOT access the Internet?
Note: Establish WiFi Connection. As long as you select either WEP or WPA-PSK encryption,
ensure encryption settings match your WiFi settings. Please refer to your WiFi adapter
documentation for additional information.
Ensure that the wireless client is associated and joined with the correct Access Point.
To check this connection, follow the steps below:
1. Right-click on the Local Area Connection icon in the taskbar.
2. Select View Available Wireless Networks in Wireless Configure. The Connect to
Wireless Network screen appears. Ensure you have selected the correct available network.
Ensure the IP Address assigned to the wireless adapter is within the same subnet as the Access
Point and gateway. The Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router has an IP Address of
192.168.123.254. Wireless adapters must have an IP Address in the same range (e.g.,
192.168.123.x). Although the subnet mask must be the same for all the computers on
the network, no two devices may have the same IP Address. Therefore, each device must have
a unique IP Address.
To check the IP Address assigned to the wireless adapter, follow the steps below:
1.Enter ipconfig /all in command mode
2.Enter ping 192.168.123.254.to check if you can access the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband
Router
3. Why does my wireless connection keep dropping?
You may try following steps to solve.
• Antenna Orientation.
1: Try different antenna orientations for the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router.
2: Try to keep the antenna at least 6 inches away from the wall or other objects.
• Try changing the channel on the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router, and your
Access Point and Wireless adapter to a different channel to avoid interference.
• Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet) from electrical devices that generate RF noise,
like microwaves, monitors, electric motors, etc.
4. Why I am unable to achieve a wireless connection?
Note: An Ethernet connection is required to troubleshoot the Wireless WAN Mobile
Broadband Router.
If you have enabled Encryption on the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router, you must
also enable encryption on all wireless clients in order to establish a wireless connection.
• For 802.11g, the encryption settings are: 64 or 128 bit. Ensure that the encryption bit level
is the same for both the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router, and your Wireless
Client.
• Ensure that the SSID (Service Set Identifier) on the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband
Router and the Wireless Client are exactly the same.
If they are not, your wireless connection will not be established.
• Move the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router and the wireless client into the same
room, and then test the wireless connection.
• Disable all security settings such as WEP, and MAC Address Control.
• Turn off the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router and the client.
Turn the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router back on again, and then turn on the
client.
• Ensure that all devices are set to Infrastructure mode.
• Ensure that the LED indicators are indicating normal activity. If not, ensure that the AC
power and Ethernet cables are firmly connected.
• Ensure that the IP Address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS settings are correctly entered
for the network.
• If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones, X-10 equipment, or other home security systems,
ceiling fans, or lights, your wireless connection may degrade dramatically, or drop
altogether.
To avoid interference, change the Channel on the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router,
and all devices in your network.
• Keep your product at least 3-6 feet away from electrical devices that generate RF noise.
Examples include: microwaves, monitors, electric motors, and so forth.
5. I just do not remember my encryption key. What should I do?
• If you forgot your encryption key, the WiFi card will be unable to establish a proper connection.
If an encryption key setting has been set for the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router, it
must also be set for the WiFi card that will connect to the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband
Router.
To reset the encryption key(s), login to the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router using a
wired connection. (Please refer to “Basic > Wireless (Security–No Encryption)” on page 10, for
additional information).
7. How do I reset my Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router to its factory default
settings?
If other troubleshooting methods have failed, you may choose to Reset the Wireless WAN
Mobile Broadband Router to its factory default settings.
To hard-reset the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router its factory default settings, follow
the steps listed below:
1. Ensure the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router is powered on
2. Locate the Reset button on the back of the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router.

4. Hold for 10 seconds and then release.
5. After the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router reboots, it is reset to the factory default
settings.
Note: Please note that this process will take a few minutes.
8. What is VPN?
• VPN stands for “Virtual Private Networking.” VPNs create a "tunnel" through an existing
Internet connection using PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) or IPSec (IP Security)
protocols with various encryption schemes including Microsoft Challenge Handshake
Authentication Protocol (MS-CHAP) .
• This feature allows you to use your existing Internet connection to connect to a remote site with
added security. If your VPN connection is not functional, verify that your VPN dial-up
configuration is correct.
Note: This information should be provided to you from your VPN provider.
Pressing the Reset Button restores to its original factory default settings.
9. What can I do if my Ethernet cable does not work properly?
• First, ensure that there is a solid cable connection between the Ethernet port on the Router, and
your NIC (Network Interface Card).
• Second, ensure that the settings on your NIC adapter are “Enabled,” and set to accept an IP
address from the DHCP.
• If settings appear to be correct, ensure that you are not using a crossover Ethernet cable.
Although the Wireless WAN Mobile Broadband Router is MDI/MDIX compatible, not all NICs
are. Therefore, it is recommended that you use a patch cable when possible.
