Configure a Mobile Network
Configure Global Mobile Network Settings
Step 1. Log in to the web-based utility and choose Networking > WAN > Mobile Network.
Step 2. Connect the USB Modem to the USB port of the router.
Note: If the modem is supported, it is automatically detected and appears on the Mobile Network page.
Step 3. Click a radio button from the Connect Mode area. The options are:
- Auto (USB is backup WAN) — This option lets your modem establish a connection to the Internet automatically. When this option is chosen, set an idle time (in minutes) in the Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time field. This will terminate the Internet connection of the USB modem when the idle time is reached. This option is useful when you do not want to rack up charges to your USB broadband Internet subscription. If you want to keep the connection active, choose Keep alive.
- Manual (USB is primary WAN) — This option uses your USB broadband Internet connection as the primary source of Internet. It lets you connect your USB modem to the Internet manually.
Note: In this example, Connection Mode is Auto, Keep Alive.
Step 4. Verify that the Card Status area shows your mobile card is Connected.
Step 5. Under the Mobile Network Setuparea, choose the Configure Mode. The options are:
- Auto — This option lets the USB modem connect to the Internet automatically. This is typically selected when the supplier of the USB modem did not provide you with login credentials for Internet connection. Proceed to Step 10.
- Manual — This option lets you configure the settings of the Internet connection manually. This option is typically selected when the supplier of the USB modem provided you with credentials that accompany the USB modem. Proceed to Step 6.
Note: In this example, Manual is chosen.
Step 6. (Optional) Enter the access point name in the Access Point Name (APN) field. This is the access point name provided by the service provider of the USB modem.
Note: In this example, the access point name is CiscoAccessPoint.
Step 7. (Optional) Enter the number to be dialed for the Internet connection in the Dial Number field. This is the telephone provided by the service provider of the USB modem.
Note: In this example, the dial number is 1234567890.
Step 8. (Optional) Enter the username in the Username field. This is the username provided by the service provider of the USB modem.

- Auto — This option automatically detects the authentication used by the Internet service provider of your USB modem.
- PAP — This option is also known as the Password Authentication Protocol. It uses a password to validate users before they are allowed to access the resources of the server.
- CHAP — This option is also known as Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol. It authenticates a user to an authenticating entity, which can be your ISP.
