HOW TO: Access the Network Router Management Console

posted 21 Aug 2017, 14:04 by Mobile Onboard System Admin   [ updated 11 Dec 2018, 02:13 by Corbin Adler ]
The Beam BW-Series unit comes with a sophisticated Network Router Management Console (WebFig) to allow you to change almost every aspect of the networking and firewall configuration of the router.  This management console is separate from the BeamOS Admin Panel.

*** IMPORTANT ***
The configuration interface contains settings for the full router configuration.  Any settings altered or removed could cause a fault on the unit which may not be remotely fixable.  Non-accessible units will need to be shipped back to our workshop to be re-configured.  Labour charges may be incurred if the unit is not covered with our Beam Care package.  The WebFig and RouterOS software are licensed on your behalf for your use as the owner of a Beam Wi-Fi unit.

1) If you do not already have it, then please raise a support ticket to obtain the login name and password for the Management Console, quoting the serial number of your unit.  These are not publicly available to keep your unit secure.
- NOTE on the BW100 you should connect to the normal Guest Wi-Fi network as this unit does not have an Accessory network.

2) Connect to the hidden Accessory Wi-Fi Channel network of the unit using a laptop.  If you do not have the details for this then please raise a support ticket, quoting the serial number of your unit.  These are not publicly available to keep your unit secure.

3) Open a Web browser and type http://192.168.49.1 into the browser's URL search bar.  (NOTE on the BW100 this should be http://192.168.42.1)

4) You will be presented with the Management Console's login page.  Login with the user name (normally beam-owner) and password provided.

5) Once you've logged in, ensure that the WebFig button is press in the top right corner.  This will give you access to all of the configuration options.
