- BEC 6300VNL 4G/LTE VoIP Wireless Broadband Router
- A Quick Start Guide
- A CD containing the user manual
- One RJ-45 Ethernet cable
- Two 4G/LTE detachable antennas
- One power adapter
1. Connecting the Supplied DC Power Adaptor
Plug in the supplied power adapter to the wall jack, then the other side to the 6300VNL. Press the power ON button to the 6300VNL and you will see the lights on the front panel light up. Wait 4-5 minutes for the unit to complete its boot cycle before trying to connect to the Internet.
2. Using a LAN Connection
Connect the supplied RJ-45 Ethernet cable to one of the Ethernet ports, and the other side to the PC’s Ethernet interface.
3. Phone Connection
Connect RJ-11 cable to the router’s “Phone 1” or “Phone 2” when connecting to an analog phone set. Both ports (“Phone 1” and “Phone 2”) can make VoIP calls simultaneously, but only one phone is allowed to make one call at the same time.
4. Using a UPS Battery Unit
Power OFF the power source button and plug the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to the device; it’s an electrical apparatus that can provide emergency power when the main power source fails.
Connecting the Router
- The default IP of modem is 192.168.1.254 with subnet 255.255.255.0. Make sure the attached PC to this router is in the same subnet and has an IP address in the range between: 192.168.1.1 ~ 192.168.1.253
- Open a web browser and type http://192.168.1.254 in the URL address bar.
- URL Address bar: type http://192.168.1.254
- The login prompt will appear. Input the default username “user” and password “user”.
Front Panel LEDs
Rear Panel Connectors
1. None of the LEDs are on when you turn on the router
Check the connection between the adapter and the router. If the error persists, you may have a hardware problem. In this case you should contact our technical support.
2. You have forgotten your router login and/or password
Try the default login and password (user/user). If this fails, you can restore your router to its factory settings by holding the Reset button on the back of your router for 6 seconds.
3. Can’t ping any PCs on the LAN
Check the Ethernet LEDs on the front panel. The LED should be on for a port that has a PC connected. If it is off, check the cables between your router and the PC. Make sure you have uninstalled any software firewall for troubleshooting. Verify that the IP address and the subnet mask are consistent between the router and the workstations.
