4.6 Recovery

Reboot

Like a regular computer, the mobile router is a Linux-based operating system. Rebooting the router can solve mysterious problems, fix Internet connectivity issues, and improve security.
The Internet provider assigns a temporary IP address which can be changed when timeout. If the router misses the change, the Internet connection might become slow. The same can happen if too many devices are connected to the router. The routers found channels with less traffic during a reboot and raised the performance speeds.

Soft Reboot

After accessing the router, go to "System > Reboot" for a soft reboot.

Hard Reboot

To run a hard reboot, please unplug the PoE injector wait a couple of seconds, and then connect it again.
Do not disconnect from the PoE injector while flashing firmware and resetting the router.

Backup & Restore

The router provides an easy way to back up and restore the previous configurations. Please back up your router configurations before making changes to the router.
Backup Configurations
After accessing the router, navigate to "System > Backup / Flash Firmware > Action: Backup." Click the "Generate Archive" button to download the archive of current router configurations.

Restore Configurations
To restore previously saved router configurations from the local PC, please navigate to "System > Backup / Flash Firmware > Action: Restore." Click the "Choose File" button to load the previously downloaded archive file. Click the "Upload Archive" button to upload the archive.
