Chapter 3 – User Manual
3.1 Connect MerryIoT Hub
You can connect to the gateway via WiFi interface which the SSID and password are printed on the back label by default.
Figure 4 – Back Label
The rule of gateway SSID is MerryIoT_Femto_Lite-xxxxxx where the last digits are the last 6 digits of the MAC address
The PC will fetch the IP address of range 192.168.4.x except 192.168.4.1 assigned by the AP.
3.2 MerryIoT Hub Setting
Open the web browser(ex: Chrome) after connecting to the gateway via IP address “192.168.4.1”
Figure 5 – WEB UI-1
Figure 6 – WEB UI-2
Now you can configure the gateway through the WEB UI.
3.3 SET WAN
The gateway support either “Ethernet” or “Wi-Fi” connection as the internet backhaul.
Figure 7 – WAN connection
STEP 3.3.1 Ethernet Setting
Configure the IP address of WAN.[Static IP/DHCP client]
Figure 8 – WAN connection
ETHERNET STATUS – The information of IP address/Subnet Mask/Gateway/DNS.
ETHERNET SETTING – Configure the IP address of WAN.[Static IP/DHCP client]
Static IP – Setup the IP address/Subnet Mask/Default Gateway/DNS of the static IP.
|Contact the network administrator for the static IP address information.|
DHCP – The IP address/Subnet Mask/Default Gateway/DNS will be assigned by the DHCP server.
Figure 9 – DHCP client
STEP 3.3.2 Wi-Fi
Select “Wi-Fi” to be the internet backhaul connection.
|The gateway WiFi interface is the Access Point by default which SSID is “MerryIoT_Femto_Lite-XXXXXX” printed on the back label. The administrator can only access the WEB UI through the Access Point mode to configure the gateway. The gateway will be the WiFi client and will not be able to access the WEB UI after enabling the WiFi interface as the internet backhaul connection.|
