The configuration wizard provides a simple way of quickly configuring the device in order to bring it up to basic functionality. The wizard is comprised out of 4 steps and they are as follows:
| name    = RUT900
| series  = RUT9
===Step 1===
| lan      = 1  <!-- For default LAN subnet. Usage: 192.168.{{{lan}}}.1 -->
The first window of Setup Wizard prompts you to change the router's '''[[RUT955 Administration#General|default password]]''' and '''[[NTP|time zone]]'''. Both of these steps are not mandatory but it is '''highly recommended that you change the default password''' because if you don't the router becomes highly vulnerable to online attacks.
| mobile  = 1
| rms      = mac <!-- mac or imei -->
| wifi    = 2  <!-- 5 or 2 (GHz) -->
[[Image:System setup wizard step 1 rut950.PNG]]
| wireless = 1
===Step 2===
The second window of Setup Wizard is used to configure your '''[[Mobile]]''' settings. Most SIM cards will work with the default settings, but some features have special requirements. For example, if your operator provides you with the Static Public IP feature, you must enter an Access Point Name (APN) for it to work, if you're planning on using PPP connection type, you must enter a dialing number in order to achieve a mobile data connection and etc.

===Step 3===
The third window of Setup Wizard is used to configure your router's '''[[LAN|Local Area Network (LAN)]]''' settings. Like all other steps, Step 3 is optional, meaning that the router will work fine with the default LAN settings. If you have multiple routers in your network it is recommended to change your router's LAN IP address to help differentiate it from other routers in your LAN, if you plan on having more than 150 devices connecting to your router, you should also change the DHCP range, etc.

===Step 4===
The fourth and final window of Setup Wizard is used to configure your router's '''[[Wireless|Wi-Fi settings]]'''. If you have more than one RUT router in you home/office, it recommended that you change the Wireless SSID, since SSIDs identical RUT routers are identical. Also, the default Wi-Fi configuration uses no encryption. It recommended that you set up a password for your Wireless Access Point to keep out unwanted devices from connecting to your Wi-Fi network.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with firmware version RUT9_R_00.07.02.7.
Note: click here for the old style WebUI (FW version RUT9XX_R_00.06.09.2 and earlier) user manual page.


The Setup Wizard is a tool that offers a simplified version of other WebUI pages used to set some of the most relevant device parameters:

You will be greeted with the Setup Wizard the first time you login, after you have changed the device default password. On other logins you will be redirected to the Overview page, but you can reach the Setup Wizard any time via the System → Setup Wizard page.

This page is an overview of the Setup Wizard tool for RUT900 devices.

Set new password

On your very first login you will be required to change the device default password. This is done for safety reasons. In many cases devices are used to provide access to remote networks and systems. Since many manufacturers use similar default passwords (like admin, admin01, admin123, etc.) it is easy for attackers to gain access to devices that use such passwords and compromise the systems behind them. Therefore, to avoid such malicious attacks, this step is mandatory and you will not able to access the rest of the WebUI before you change the password.

The new password must contain:

  • 8-32 characters;
  • at least one upper case letter;
  • at least one lower case letter;
  • at least one digit.

After you have entered the new password, click 'Submit'. Afterwards you will be redirected to the first page of the Setup Wizard.


The General section is used to configure the device's time and WebUI mode settings.

If you wish to set the device's time zone settings later instead, you can do so via the Services → NTP page.

WebUI mode can be set in the System → Administration → General page or by clicking the button under "Mode", which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI:

The LAN section is used to configure the device's local area network (LAN) and DHCP server settings. A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server can automatically configure the TCP/IP settings for any device that requests such a service. If you connect a device that has been configured to obtain an IP address automatically, the DHCP server will lease out an IP address from the available IP pool and the device will be able to communicate within the device's private network.

Field Value Description
IP address ip; default: The LAN interface's IPv4 address. An IP address identifies a device on a network and allows it to communicate with other devices.
Netmask netmask; default: 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.
Enable DHCP off | on; default: on Turns the DHCP server on or off.
Start integer [1..255]; default: 100 The starting IP address value. e.g., if your device's LAN IP is and your subnet mask is that means that in your network a valid IP address has to be in the range of [] ( is a special unavailable address). If the Start value is set to 100 then the DHCP server will only lease out addresses starting from
Limit integer [1..255]; default: 150 How many addresses the DHCP server can lease out. Continuing from the example above: if the start address is and the server can lease out 150 addresses, available addresses will be from to (100 + 150 – 1 = 249; this is because the first address is inclusive).
Lease time interger [2..999999]; default: 12 A DHCP lease will expire after the amount of time specified in this field and the device that was using the lease will have to request a new one. However, if the device stays connected, its lease will be renewed after half of the specified amount of time passes (e.g., if lease time is 12 hours, then every 6 hours the device will ask the DHCP server to renew its lease).
The minimal amount of time that can be specified is 2 minutes.
Units Hours | Minutes; default: Hours Lease time measuring units.

If you wish to set the device's LAN and DHCP settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → LAN page.


The Mobile section is used to configure the device's SIM card parameters.

Field Value Description
Auto APN off | on; default: on An Access Point Name (APN) is a gateway between a GSM, GPRS, 3G or 4G mobile network and another computer network. Depending on the contract, some operators may require you to enter the APN just to complete the registration to a network. In other cases an APN is used to get special parameters from the operator (e.g., a public IP address) depending on the contract. Auto APN scans an internal Android APN database and selects an APN based on the SIM card's operator and country. If the first automatically selected APN doesn't work, it attempts to use the next existing APN from the database.
Off: APN Suggestion from device | Custom; default: Suggestion from device Select between a suggested APN from device or enter your custom APN.
Custom: Custom APN string; default: none Custom APN Network Identifier. Cannot start with any of the following strings: "rac", "lac", "sgsn" or "rnc"; it cannot end in ".gprs" and it cannot take the value "*".
Custom: Authentication Type None | PAP/CHAP (both) | PAP | CHAP; default: None The method that your carrier uses to authenticate new connections on its network. If you select PAP, CHAP or both you will be required to enter a username and password.
PIN string; default: none A 4-digit long numeric password used to authenticate the modem to the SIM card.

Note: this table has coloring scheme to indicate which fields can be seen with different configuration.

If you wish to set the device's Mobile WAN settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → WAN page.


The WiFi section is used to configure the device's WiFi Access Point (AP).

Field Value Description
Enable off | on; default: on Turns the WiFi access point on or off.
ESSID string; default: RUT_<last 4 symbols of WiFi MAC> An identification string (name) for the access point. It is how the access point will be seen by connecting devices.
Password string; default: unique to each device A password used to authenticate users to this access point.

If you wish to set the device's WiFi settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → Wireless page.


This section is used to configure the settings required to connect the device to the RMS (Remote Management System) - a cloud system designed by Teltonika and intended for remote monitoring and management of Teltonika-Networks products.

In order to add a device(s) to RMS, get yourself acquainted by watching this instructional video and register an account by clicking here. Each unique device receives a free month-long RMS license when added to RMS for the first time.
