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 RUTX11 routers.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUTX_R_00.01.06 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 'Submit'. Afterwards you will be redirected to the first page of the Setup Wizard.

General[edit | edit source]

The General section is used to configure the router's time settings.

If you wish to set the router's time zone settings later instead, you can do so via the Services → NTP page.

LAN[edit | edit source]

The LAN section is used to configure the router's local area network (LAN) and DHCP server settings. A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server can automatically configure the TCP/IP settings for any device that requests such a service. If you connect a device that has been configured to obtain an IP address automatically, the DHCP server will lease out an IP address from the available IP pool and the device will be able to communicate within the router's private network.

Field Value Description
IP address ip; default: 192.168.1.1 The LAN interface's IPv4 address. An IP address identifies a device on a network and allows it to communicate with other devices.
Netmask netmask; default: 255.255.255.0 A netmask is used to define how "large" a network is by specifying which part of the IP address denotes the network and which part denotes the device.
Enable DHCP off | on; default: on Turns the DHCP server on or off.
Start integer [1..255]; default: 100 The starting IP address value. e.g., if your router’s LAN IP is 192.168.1.1 and your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 that means that in your network a valid IP address has to be in the range of [192.168.1.0..192.168.1.254] (192.168.1.255 is a special unavailable address). If the Start value is set to 100 then the DHCP server will only lease out addresses starting from 192.168.1.100.
Limit integer [1..255]; default: 150 How many addresses the DHCP server can lease out. Continuing from the example above: if the start address is 192.168.1.100 and the server can lease out 150 addresses, available addresses will be from 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.249 (100 + 150 – 1 = 249; this is because the first address is inclusive).
Lease time interger [2..999999]; default: 12 A DHCP lease will expire after the amount of time specified in this field and the device that was using the lease will have to request a new one. However, if the device stays connected, its lease will be renewed after half of the specified amount of time passes (e.g., if lease time is 12 hours, then every 6 hours the device will ask the DHCP server to renew its lease).
The minimal amount of time that can be specified is 2 minutes.
Units Hours | Minutes; default: Hours Lease time measuring units.

If you wish to set the router's LAN and DHCP settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → LAN page.

WAN[edit | edit source]

The WAN section is used to configure the router's SIM card parameters.

Field Value Description
APN string; default: none An Access Point Name (APN) is a gateway between a GSM, GPRS, 3G or 4G mobile network and another computer network. Depending on the contract, some operators may require you to enter the APN just to complete the registration to a network. In other cases an APN is used to get special parameters from the operator (e.g., a public IP address) depending on the contract.
Important note: an APN Network Identifier cannot start with any of the following strings: "rac", "lac", "sgsn" or "rnc"; it cannot end in ".gprs" and it cannot take the value "*".
PIN string; default: none A 4-digit long numeric password used to authenticate the modem to the SIM card.
Authentication Type None | PAP/CHAP (both) | PAP | CHAP; default: None The method that your carrier uses to authenticate new connections on its network. If you select PAP, CHAP or both you will be required to enter a username and password.

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

WiFi[edit | edit source]

The WiFi section is used to configure the router's WiFi access points (APs). The router supports two types of WiFi: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. 2.4 GHz WiFi provides better coverage and works at a longer range, but has lower data transfer speeds when compared to 5 GHz WiFi.

Field Value Description
Enable off | on; default: on Turns the WiFi access point on or off.
Channel WiFi channel number | auto; default: auto WiFi channel used by the access point. When this field is set to 'auto', the access point will choose the least populated channel.
ESSID string; default: RUT_<last 4 symbols of WiFi MAC>_<frequency> The Extended Service Set Identifier (ESSID) is an identification string (name) for the access point. It is how the access point will be seen by connecting devices.
Encryption No encryption | WPA-PSK | WPA2-PSK | WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Mixed Mode | WPA-EAP | WPA2-EAP; default: WPA2-PSK The type of encryption used by the access point.
Cipher auto | Force CCMP (AES) | Force TKIP | Force TKIP and CCMP (AES); default: Force TKIP and CCMP (AES) An algorithm for performing encryption and decryption.
Key string; default: unique to each device A password used to authenticate users to the access point.
802.11r Fast Transition off | on; default: off Enables fast roaming among access points that belong to the same Mobility Domain.

If you wish to set the router's WiFi settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → Wireless page.

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.
Hostname host | ip; default: rms.teltonika.lt Address of the RMS server. If you're using regular RMS, just leave the default address (rms.teltonika.lt).
Port integer [0..65535]; default: 15009 Port number for connecting to RMS. If you're using regular RMS, just leave the default port (15009).

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