Configure Prism’s network interface and encryption options by opening the Network menu from the web UI.
WIFI Mode (WiFi only) -
- Access Point (AP): Prism acts as its own dual-band access point, allowing you to connect your device directly to Prism’s AP network, and for bonding multiple cellular devices for increased bandwidth.
- Client: Prism and your mobile device connect to the same local wireless network. Client Mode is typically used for normal WiFi operating and connecting to your local router
IP Mode -
- Dynamic (DHCP): When set to DHCP, Prism requests an IP address and configuration from the network’s DHCP server.
- Static: When set to Static, you will need to manually configure the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server to connect to the network.
- MTU (Wired or Modem only) - MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) represents the maximum packet or frame size that can be transmitted via Ethernet. The larger the MTU of a connection, the more data that can be passed in a single Ethernet packet.
Authentication (Node II/USB Modem only) -
- Auto: The modem is automatically detected and configured. Prism Flex/Mobile supports many modems worldwide using his setting.
- PAP (Password Authentication Protocol): Requires a username and password to establish a network connection.
- CHAP (Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol): Authenticates a user or network host to an authenticating entity (e.g., an internet service provider).
