Summary

The Network page contains information related to the device's networking features. This chapter is an overview of the Network page in RUT955 devices.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the RUT9XX_R_00.06.06 firmware version.

The Mobile section displays information about the mobile connection and the SIM card in use. The figure below is an example of the Mobile page:

Networking rut9xx manual network mobile information 4g v2.png

field name description
Data connection state Indicates whether the device has an active mobile data connection
IMEI The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit number used to identify cellular modules. GSM network operators use the IMEI to identify devices in their networks
IMSI The IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit (or less) number used to identify the user of a cellular network
ICCID SIM card's ICCID is a unique serial number used to identify the SIM chip
SIM card state The current SIM card state. Possible values are:
  • Ready - SIM card is inserted and ready to be used
  • Inserted - SIM card is inserted
  • Not inserted - SIM card is not inserted
  • Unknown - unable to obtain SIM card state value. Possible communication issue between the the device and the modem
Signal strength Received signal strength indicator (RSSI) measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate a better signal strength
Cell ID The ID of the cell that the modem is currently connected to
Signal level measurements Overall signal quality is defined by different measurements for different connection types. Short explanations and recommendations are provided below. Click here for more in-depth information or click on one of the links below:
  • 4G
    • RSRP - reference signal received power, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strength
    • RSRQ - reference signal received quality, measured in dB. Values closer to 0 indicate a better rate of information transfer
    • SINR - signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio, measured in dB. Higher values indicate a better rate of information transfer
  • 3G
    • EC/IO - downlink carrier-to-interference ratio. Values range from -20 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal quality/cleanliness)
    • RSCP - received signal code power. Values range from -124 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal stength)
  • 2G
    • RSSI - received signal strength indicator, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strength
Operator Network operator's name
Operator state Shows whether the network has currently indicated the registration of the mobile device. Possible values are:
  • Unregistered - not registered to a network and the device is not currently searching for a new operator to register to
  • Registered (home) - registered, home network
  • Searching - not registered to a network, but the device is currently searching for a new operator to register to
  • Network denied - registration to network denied by operator
  • Unknown - operator state is currently unknown
  • Registered (roaming) - registered to network, roaming conditions
Connection type Mobile connection connection type. Possible values are:
  • 2G: 2G (GSM), 2G (GPRS), 2G (EDGE)
  • 3G: 3G (WCDMA), 3G (HSDPA), 3G (HSUPA), 3G (HSPA), 3G (HSPA+), 3G (DC-HSPA+), 3G (HSDPA+HSUPA), UMTS
  • 4G: 4G (LTE)
  • N/A - not possible to determine at the moment

WAN

The WAN section displays information about the Main and Backup WAN connections. The figure below is an example of the Mobile page:

Networking rut9xx manual network wan information v1.png

Field Description
Interface WAN type. Possible values are:
  • Mobile
  • Wired
  • Wireless
Type Connection type or protocol. The value displayed in this field is dependent on used WAN type. Possible values are:
  • Mobile WAN or USB modem
    • Qmi2 - Qualcomm MSM Interface, a proprietary protocol used between Qualcomm cellular processors and their software stacks
    • PPP - Point-to-Point Protocol; uses a dialling number to establish a data connection
    • NCM - Network Control Model, a protocol by which USB hosts and devices can efficiently exchange Ethernet frames (this is the connection type when using a Huawei USB modem)
  • Wired WAN
    • DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol; the WAN network interface controller acts as a DHCP client, meaning that it receives a dynamically assigned IP address and other network configuration parameters
    • Static - WAN network interface controller configuration parameters are set manually (used when the WAN gateway is not a DHCP server)
    • PPPoE - Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet; used to establish a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) Internet service connection
  • WiFi WAN
    • DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol; the WAN network interface controller acts as a DHCP client, meaning that it receives a dynamically assigned IP address and other network configuration parameters
    • Static - WAN network interface controller configuration parameters are set manually (used when the WAN gateway is not a DHCP server)
IP address Router's WAN IP address
WAN MAC MAC address of the WAN network interface controller (WiFi radio or WAN Ethernet port). This field is only visible if main WAN is set to Wired or WiFi
Netmask 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
Gateway Gateway of the default route - an IP address through which the router reaches the Internet
DNS DNS servers used by the main WAN connection
Connected Currently used WAN connection uptime
Ports Displays an image of the router's back panel with highlighted Ethernet ports that are currently in use
WAN Failover Status Displays the router's current WAN failover status
