eWON Config Post 2b: Configure eWON Internet Access (Cellular)

In this post, we'll go through the steps required to get your eWON connected to the Internet (Cellular). This post assumes you've already taken the preliminary steps of Updating eBuddy, Upgrading eWON Firmware, and Setting the eWON IP Address.

With your PC configured such that it can reach the eWON LAN IP, type in the eWON LAN IP into your browser to reach its web configuration. You'll still be using device defaults "adm" username and "adm" password until you configure otherwise. You should see the following page.

After selecting "Configuration" at the top right of the above screen, you should now see the following:

Selecting "Wizards" leads you to this.

Next you select the button for "Configure INTERNET Connection" and for Cellular Internet utilizing a SIM card inserted in the eWON you select "Modem Connection" as shown below. Ensure the check box for "Initialize configuration first" remains checked and select "Next > >"

On the following page, you configure the GSM Modem connection properties. For AT&T, all that is required is the APN which you should have received from the party that activated your SIM. Hit "Next > >" again.

Here you can configure the "Go Online" trigger which controls when the eWON connects to the cellular network. Users attempting to minimize cellular data usage should consider the options presented here. For the purposes of this lesson, we continue here with "Maintain connection" such that the eWON will connect at the end of the Wizard without any additional configuration.

Even if selecting "Maintain connection" you may configure some parameters here to avoid a persistent cellular connection when no data is passing through the eWON.

The next screen allows you to test your Internet connection. Leave the "Test online address" option checked and select "Test > >" The eWON will step through a series of tests and if all goes well you should see the following.

This confirms that your eWON is successfully connected to the Internet. Let's continue by Configuring eWON Connection to Talk2M.
