Why is my router slower than my phone?

  • Modern phones support faster LTE technologies than most Teltonika-Networks devices as they are made and used for different purposes. Most of the speed discrepancies are due to carrier aggregation (CA). To see how CA and other factors can affect LTE speeds, please refer to the LTE Speed Discrepancies page.

username: admin

password: admin01

How can I restart RUT/TRB device's particular service via SSH?

  • On the RUT/TRB devices, it is available to restart a particular service by executing command in the router's Secure Socket Shell (SSH).
  • SSH is a network protocol that gives users, particularly system administrators, a secure way to access the device.
  • To see how a particular service is named please type ls /etc/init.d command in SSH.
  • Here is the example of listed files that are located on init.d directory
ls command
  • For example in order to restart OpenVPN service you have to specify directory location and add command "restart".
  • Example: /etc/init.d/openvpn restart
  • After you execute this command your service is immediately restarted. Also, you can use start/stop commands which accordingly start or stop service.
  • Example: /etc/init.d/firewall stop

How can I install packages on my device?

  • Some packages, which are not as commonly used, are excluded from firmware files in order to save the device flash memory space.
  • You can install these packages using either Package Manager in WebUI or using opkg CLI command.
  1. To install a package using Package Manager, simply login to routers WebUI and navigate to Services Package Manager Packages
    • You can either select a package from the list or use search bar located on the upper right corner of the screen.
    • Once required package is found, press '+' button to install.
    • Additionally, if the device does not have internet connectivity, package files for specific device firmware version could be downloaded on our wiki from here and uploaded offline by navigating to Services Package Manager Upload
  2. If a package is unavailable in package manager or installation through command line interface is required - opkg command can be used.
    • Before using opkg, source list must be updated using the following command: opkg update
    • To list all available packages use the following command: opkg list
    • To install a package use the following syntax: opkg install <PACKAGE_NAME>
    • For example to install DNP3 package: opkg install dnp3
  • You can find the newly installed Teltonika Networks devices packages configuration section in the device WebUI at Services → <PACKAGE_NAME>.
  • Note: Since the RutOS operating system is based on Linux OpenWRT, it is possible to install additional packages from OpenWRT using OPKG. However, please note that some of those packages might not have WebUI support and might not work as intended.

What are the differences between RUT2xx series devices?

If we compare RUT200, RUT240, and RUT241, we will see equal measurements, interfaces, and most of the hardware specifications; However, there are some differences under the hood:

  • RUT200 - CPU: Mediatek MIPS 24KEc 580 MHz / RAM: 128 MB / Module: QUECTEL;
  • RUT240 - CPU: Qualcomm Atheros Hornet MIPS 24Kc 400 MHz / RAM: 64 MB / Module: QUECTEL or MEIG;
  • RUT241 - CPU: MediaTek MIPS 24KEc 580MHz / RAM: 128 MB / Module: QUECTEL or MEIG;

There are also differences in the certifications and standards they support. RUT240 has the most certificates and can be utilized worldwide. RUT241 and RUT240 go hand in hand; however, if compared, RUT241 currently has fewer certificates than RUT240; Nevertheless, eventually, RUT241 will catch up with RUT240 in the number of certifications and standards. Out of RUT2xx series devices, RUT200 has the least certificates and can only be operated in certain regions.

You can find more detailed information about all available RUT200, RUT240, and RUT241 certificates here.

What are the differences between RUT95x series devices?

CPU is the only hardware difference between the lower 95x series:

  • RUT950 - CPU: Qualcomm Atheros Wasp, MIPS 74Kc, 550 MHz.
  • RUT951 - CPU: Mediatek MIPS 24KEc 580 MHz.

Higher-end models include an additional hardware change related to memory expansion:

  • RUT955 - CPU: Qualcomm Atheros Wasp, MIPS 74Kc, 550 MHz and SD card support.
  • RUT956 - CPU: Mediatek MIPS 24KEc 580 MHz.

Currently, RUT950 and RUT955 have more certifications than their alternatives and can be used more globally, however, eventually, RUT951 and RUT956 will catch up certification and approval-wise.

Why do the RUTX12, RUTX14, RUTX50, and TRB500 models feature varying numbers of main and AUX mobile antennas?

  • The RUTX12, RUTX14, RUTX50, and TRB500 models feature different configurations of main and AUX mobile antennas due to variations in their mobile modules and modem architectures.
  • The RUTX12 is distinctive for housing two CAT6 LTE mobile modules, each demanding one main and one AUX mobile antenna. These antennas can individually achieve speeds of up to 300 Mbps without bonding.
  • In contrast, the RUTX14 comes equipped with an LTE CAT 12 mobile module capable of reaching speeds of up to 600 Mbps independently. To optimize its performance, it requires one main and three AUX mobile antennas.
  • On the other hand, both the RUTX50 and TRB500 boast new 5G mobile modules. However, their modem architectures necessitate different antenna configurations. The RUTX50 requires four main mobile antennas to attain speeds of 3.3 Gbps, while the TRB500, due to comparatively weaker hardware, requires only one main mobile antenna to achieve speeds of 1 Gbps.
