MiMAX Pro RG231 (Indoor Gateway)

Please make sure that you have the latest firmware installed before configuring the device; the firmware upgrade procedure is described in the user guide. By default, the device has fixed IP address of 192.168.1.1; set your machine to any 192.168.1.X address and connect it to the gateway with the Ethernet cable. Management is mostly done over http at port 80 (but can be also performed over the telnet session).

GENI Configuration

The device needs custom WiMAX configuration that is not described in the manual. In order to get to the set of pages for WiMAX configuration log in with (case is important):

  • username: Operator
  • password: oper1234

You should now get extended menu that includes WiMAX menu button once you switch to Advanced Settings mode as shown in Figure 1.

Additional WiMAX menu (only when logged with operator account)

  1. Select WiMAX and go to the "Profile Settings" on the sub-menu (should be the default page once you select WiMAX) and set it to match your configuration. For most sites it should looks something like this:
  1. Home Operator ID: 44:51:db
  2. Operator Name: GENI
  3. Operator Restrictions: none
  4. Add the list of frequencies and bandwidths for your site
  5. Enable Authentication: unchecked

The filled-in page should look like the one shown in Figure 2 and 3.

    2. Operator Name: GENI
    3. Enable: checked

and hit Add button (Figure 4).
