Firmware 8.1 enables the SpeedFusion Cloud. Achieve unbreakable connectivity from anywhere in the world using just a single Peplink device.
Wireless Tech provide 5G solutions using Peplink products with the aim to connect people, businesses, and objects around the world driving innovation to a whole new level.
You need to provide Wireless Tech the MGT port MAC address and serial number of the mesh router node.
Hitachi ABB will provide temporary password together with the reset user strings like the one below.
This tutorial will help you connect your computer to a Peplink Balance router using the console port.
Before you start
Before you start you will need a RJ-45 to usb console cable; alternatively you can use a combination of a RJ-45 to DB-9 console cable and a USB to RS-232 cable.
Now available the future proof router, the SDX Pro. Flexible enough for nearly any deployment, powerful enough for most operations.
It comes with 2x module slots for flexibility, up to 2TB of storage for edge computing for increased responsiveness, 24Gbps of throughput, and much much more!
Enable for Peplink Balance, MAX, FusionHub, and Surf SOHO
Devices using Firmware 6.0 or above
Login your Web Admin Interface as an administrator. By default, it is set as:
192.168.50.1 (MAX and Surf SOHO)
Click the “Turn on” link under “System Information”, as specified by the following screenshot:
- Connect to the Web Admin Interface with a web browser.
- Go to Status > Device. Click the Download button next to the Diagnostic Report field.
- A prompt will appear for saving the file containing the Diagnostic Report to your computer.
Australia (and New Zealand)
Australia uses the 915 MHz to 928 MHz wireless network frequency band and thus manufacturers of devices using the Microchip LoRaWAN module RN-2903A must load the correct firmware from Microchip to make the devices function properly.
SpeedFusion and PepVPN can operate in layer 2 mode, bridging both ends of a VPN to create a single Ethernet LAN. This allows you to extend your local network and easily run applications that are LAN-only or difficult to route, such as:
- Zeroconf / Bonjour
- Windows printer and file sharing network discovery
To use this feature, navigate to Network > Network Settings and select the interface you wish to bridge
Available from firmware version 8.0 for Peplink routers with a SpeedFusion WAN Smoothing license.
When using multicast applications on lossy WAN connections the performance can suffer. To overcome these problems Peplink introduced WAN smoothing, but WAN smoothing has an overhead of at least 50%.
This is not always desirable when there isn’t enough bandwidth available. Peplink has therefore introduced Forward Error Correction in Firmware 8.0
FEC is a cousin of WAN smoothing but it consumes less data. It is useful for bandwidth sensitive applications such as mobile streaming.
