Summary #

The Network page contains information related to the device’s networking. This chapter is an overview of the Network page in RUTX11 devices.

If you’re having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device’s WebUI, you should turn on “Advanced WebUI” mode. You can do that by clicking the “Basic” button under “Mode”, which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.

LAN #

This tab displays information about the device’s local network(s). The figure below is an example of the Network window: 

Lan Information
NameLAN interface name
IP addressIP address of the LAN interface
NetmaskNetmask of the LAN interface. In a sense, a netmask specifies the size of a network. In other words, it indicates which part of the IP address denotes the network, and which denotes the device
Dhcp Leases
HostnameHostname of a LAN client
IP addressIP address of a LAN client
MAC addressMAC address of a LAN client
Leasetime remainingRemaining lease time for a DHCP client. Active DHCP lease holders will try to renew their DHCP leases after a half of the lease time passes.

Mobile #

The Mobile tab displays information about the mobile connection. The figure below is an example of the Mobile tab: 

Field NameDescription
Sim card slot in useShows which sim card slot is currently in use
IMEIThe IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit number used to identify mobile modules. GSM network operators use the IMEI to identify devices in their networks
SIM card stateThe current SIM card state. Possible values are:
Inserted – SIM card is inserted and ready to be usedNot inserted – SIM card is not insertedUnknown – unable to obtain SIM card state value. Possible communication issue between the the device and the modem
IMSIThe IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit (or less) number used to identify the user of a cellular network
ICCIDSIM card’s ICCID – a unique serial number used to identify the SIM chip
OperatorNetwork operator’s name
Operator stateShows whether the network has currently indicated the registration of the mobile device. Possible values are:Unregistered – not registered to a network and the device is not currently searching for a new operator to register toRegistered (home) – registered, home networkSearching – not registered to a network, but the device is currently searching for a new operator to register toNetwork denied – registration to network denied by operatorUnknown – operator state is currently unknownRegistered (roaming) – registered to network, roaming conditions
Cell IDThe ID of the cell that the modem is currently connected to
Data connection stateIndicates whether the device has a mobile data connection or not
Connection typeMobile connection connection type. Possible values are:4G: 4G (LTE)3G: 3G (WCDMA), 3G (HSDPA), 3G (HSUPA), 3G (HSPA), 3G (HSPA+), 3G (DC-HSPA+), 3G (HSDPA+HSUPA), UMTSN/A – not possible to determine at the moment
Signal strengthReceived signal strength indicator (RSSI) measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate a better signal strength
Carrier AggregationLTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation, CA, is one of the key techniques used to enable the very high data rates of 4G to be achieved.By combining more than one carrier together, either in the same or different bands it is possible to increase the bandwidth available and in this way increase the capacity of the link.
Connected bandCurrently used frequency band. For more information on supported frequency bands
Other signal level measurementsOverall signal quality for different connection types is defined by different measurements. Short explanations and recommendations are provided below. Click here for more in-depth information or click on one of the links below:4GRSRP – reference signal received power, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strengthRSRQ – reference signal received quality, measured in dB. Values closer to 0 indicate a better rate of information transferSINR – signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio, measured in dB. Higher values indicate a better rate of information transfer3GEC/IO – downlink carrier-to-interference ratio. Values range from -20 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal quality/cleanliness)RSCP – received signal code power. Values range from -124 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal stength)
Bytes receivedAmount of data received through the mobile interface
Bytes sentAmount of data sent through the mobile interface
Restart ModemRestarts the devices module

Wireless #

Networking rutx manual status network wireless.png
Field NameDescription
SSIDThe broadcasted SSID (Service Set Identifier) of the wireless network
Wireless MACThe MAC (Media Access Control) address of the access point radio
BandThe band defines which frequency used
SignalThe signal quality between router’s radio and some other device that is connected to the router
Bit rateThe maximum possible physical throughput that the router’s radio can handle. Bit rate will be shared between router and other possible devices which connect to local Access Point (AP)
ModeConnection mode. Can either be Access Point (AP) or Client. In AP mode others can connect to this router’s wireless connection. In client mode router connects to other wireless networks
EncryptionThe type of WiFi encryption used
HostnameDevice’s hostname
IP addressShows what IP address leased for device
MAC addressDevice’s MAC (Media Access Control) address
SignalReceived Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI). Signal’s strength measured in dBm
RX rateThe rate at which packets are received from associated interface
TX rateThe rate at which packets are sent to associated interface
