Summary[edit | edit source]

The Setup Wizard is a tool that offers a simplified version of other WebUI pages used to set some of the router's most relevant parameters:

You will be greeted with the Setup Wizard the first time you login, after you have changed the router's default password. On other logins you will be redirected to the Overview page, but you can reach the Setup Wizard any time via the System → Setup Wizard page.

This page is an overview of the Setup Wizard tool for RUT850 routers.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUT850_R_00.01.03.4 firmware version.

Set new password[edit | edit source]

On your very first login you will be required to change the router's default password. This is done for safety reasons. In many cases routers are used to provide access to remote networks and systems. Since many manufacturers use similar default passwords (like admin, admin01, admin123, etc.) it is easy for attackers to gain access to routers that use such passwords and compromise the systems behind them. Therefore, to avoid such malicious attacks, this step is mandatory and you will not able to access the rest of the WebUI before you change the password.

The new password must contain:

  • 8-32 characters;
  • at least one upper case letter;
  • at least one lower case letter;
  • at least one digit.

After you have entered the new password, click 'Save'. Afterwards you will be redirected to the first page of the Setup Wizard.

If you wish to set these setting later, you can find them via the following paths:

RMS[edit | edit source]

This section is used to configure the settings required to connect the router to the RMS (Remote Management System) - a cloud system designed by Teltonika and intended for remote monitoring and management of Teltonika's networking products.

In order to add a device(s) to RMS, get yourself acquainted by watching this instructional video and register an account by clicking here. Each unique device receives a free month-long RMS license when added to RMS for the first time.

Field Value Description
Connection type Enabled | Standby | Disabled; default: Enabled Defines how the device will connect to RMS:
  • Enabled - the device attempts to connect to RMS every 2-5 minutes (every 2 minutes the first hour; then every 5 minutes). If it cannot connect for 14 days, it will enter Standby mode.
  • Standby - the device attempts to connect to RMS every 6 hours.
  • Disabled - RMS functionality is disabled.

When connection type is set to 'Enabled', the router attempts to connect to RMS every 2-5 minutes. To skip this wait, click the 'Connect' button to initiate a connection instantly.

If you wish to set the router's RMS settings later instead, you can do so via the System → Administration → RMS page.

WiFi[edit | edit source]

The WiFi section is used to configure the router's WiFi access point (AP). A WiFi access point is a type of wireless interface that provides WiFi access to connecting clients.
