Sprint Netgear 341U Support in 6.4.3
Q:

Support for Sprint Netgear 341U and how to Use the Feature?

 

 

 



A:

Description of the Feature

 

  • Starting from AOS 6.4.3 we support the Netgear 341U model as a backup USB cellular LTE uplink on the controller.
  • This is supported with the controller being in any mode: Standalone, Master, Local, (BoC)
  • This uplink is NOT supported as the primary uplink during branch office controller initial bringup.
  • This has been supported on the Sprint LTE network in North America.
  • How to Use the Feature

 

341U modem runs in two modes: NAT mode and IPT.

–Nat mode: Modem acts like a natting device.

This is the default mode out of the box.

WAN IP is on the modem and a DHCP server on the modem hands out an IP in the 192.168.1.x/24 subnet (Usually 192.168.1.4)

While using this mode, make sure that no other interfaces have the same subnet.

–IPT: IP Pass through / Bridge mode.

WAN IP is on the controller directly

 

 Modem parameters

–Connect modem to laptop and visit http://sprintmodem or http://192.168.1.1   while the modem is in NAT mode. Default password is : password

–From here you can change the subnet, mode and other parameters.

–Tool to change from IPT mode to Default :
