HOW CAN I USE MY OWN WI-FI ROUTER WITH 4GAS?

 

To get started, make sure your Internet Device is connected, powered up and is displaying a green WI-FI signal in the front panel of the device and / or the green Ethernet light

 

In order to connect a secondary wireless router to your Internet device, your device must have a 4G light active. (See Example):

To start this process we recommend to have the following handy:

  • Your Laptop or Computer
  • Your 4GAS Internet Device
  • 2 Ethernet Cords (1 is provided with your 4GAS Device)
  • Your Wifi Router, factory reset this device first before starting the process.

Follow the illustration below to connect the ethernet cables to the correct ports:

After the devices are all connected, wait a few minutes and then we can continue to the next step:

Step 1. Open an up an Internet browser such as Google Chrome. This will take you to the default wireless router page. We will use a Netgear Wi-fi router for this example:

Step 2. The wireless router should detect your 4GAS Internet device as seen below, in the menu you below you have the option of setting your wireless router as an Access Point or as a router. (See Example): We recommend you choose Access Point as the 4GAS Internet Device controls the DHCP and assigns local IP addresses.

Step 3. Your new wireless router can be assigned a local IP address by your 4GAS Internet device or you can set a custom IP. (See Example):

Remember if you choose to make your own IP for the wireless router, use must use something other than the 4GAS Internet device default IP address, you can you anything from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254 but it can not be 192.168.1.1 because that is assigned to the 4GAS device.

Step 4. Your wireless router will now finish the final configuration steps. This may take up to 2 minutes. (See Example):

Step 5. Your configuration is now complete of your wireless router. Make sure to record your default passwords as you will need them to access your new wireless network. (See Example):

 
Now it is recommended to shut off the 4GAS Internet device internal WI-FI when using an external wireless router, these steps will show you how:

 

Step 1. In your Internet browser, type in the following information in the URL section of the web browser, 192.168.1.1 and then hit enter. (See Example):

Step 2. Enter the password to access the modem, the default password is the word "admin". (See Example):

 

Step 3. You will now be at the 4GAS Internet device home page, now look for a section that says NETWORK SETTINGS and click on the link that says WI-FI settings. (See Example):

 

Step 4. After you click on the WI-FI settings link above, you will now have access to disable the WI-FI Switch, click on Disable and then hit apply. (See Example):

Your 4GAS Internet device's WI-FI is now disabled, and will no longer display in your network searches. The 4GAS Internet device may need to be rebooted.
