4.2 Network Interfaces
The network interfaces on the EZR23 router.
After log in to the router, go to
Interfacesto view and manage the network interfaces.
The brief information of each interface is listed under the second column, including MAC address, Rx (Download), Tx (Upload), Uptime, and IP address.
Overview of EZR23 network interfaces
Stopthe LAN interface or
Deleteany of the interfaces. It will make the router mis-functioning.
- The color on each interface is not corresponding to its connection status.
- Rx/Tx indicates the realtime data stream instead of the speed of internet or intranet.
This is a virtual interface that only appears when the
Mobile (wwan0)interface is using
QMI protocoland connected to mobile internet networks. You can find the IP address obtained by the mobile modem on the row of
Uptimeis the lasting connection period with the mobile network, which depends on the timeout period released from the mobile carrier.
This is the physical interface of the local intranet network. It is assigned to the physical RJ45 port
eth1by default, which also has the PoE power input. Refer to the below section to configure the local intranet networks.
This interface is bind to the physical mobile modem. On the row of
SIM, you can find the current working SIM card. The
QMIrow indicates the mobile operator, mobile network, and signal strength (dBm). If it's showing
UNKNOWN, there is no SIM card or SIM card installed incorrectly.
The 4G router automatically connects mobile network when started up, and you can manually Stop or Connect the 4G modem by clicking the related buttons. After successfully connected to the 4G network, Rx/Tx shows the realtime data stream and shows the IPv4 IP address obtained from the mobile carrier. The IP address shows on the Mobile_4 interface while using the default QMI protocol.
WANport is bind to the
eth0RJ45 port by default. To input the WAN Internet signal from the PoE port into the EZR23 router, you can bind
eth1to the WAN port on the
DHCP client protocolis enabled on the WAN interface, and it can automatically obtain the IP address after connected to the LAN port on the internet router or landline modem.
This is the virtual interface for the Wi-Fi relay connection. The WWAN interface will appear after successfully connected the EZR23 router to another Wi-Fi master hotspot.
