Ports & LEDs

ANTENNA CONNECTORS – There are five total antenna connectors for the IBR1100 and three for the IBR1150:

  • Two for the integrated 3G/4G modem (SMA)
  • One for GPS (SMA)
  • (IBR1100 only) Two for dual-band dual-concurrent WiFi (RSMA)

Be careful to correctly distinguish between SMA and RSMA connections. Antennas WITH pins must attach to connectors WITHOUT pins, while antennas WITHOUT pins must attach to connectors WITH pins.

Also, the MAIN modem connector may have better performance than the AUX connector, so attach the better (or single) modem antenna to the MAIN connector if that is relevant in your setup.

ETHERNET PORTS – By default there are two LAN Ethernet ports and one WAN Ethernet port. All three of these ports are LAN/WAN configurable.

POWER/GPIO CONNECTOR – This connector has four pin slots: power, ground, input, and output.

Connector pinout – view into router (rear view of cable connector):

RESET (power and factory reset button)

  • On – Press and hold for one second to turn on. Multiple LEDs turn on to signal that the router is on. RELEASE THE BUTTON BEFORE FIVE SECONDS TO PREVENT THE ROUTER FROM TURNING OFF AGAIN.
  • Off – Press and hold for five seconds to turn off. The USB and modem lights turn red to signal that the router will turn off upon release. RELEASE THE BUTTON BEFORE TEN SECONDS TO PREVENT FACTORY RESET.
  • Factory reset – Press and hold for ten seconds to factory reset the device. The USB and modem lights turn amber and blink twice to signal factory reset. This returns all settings to factory defaults.

NOTE: Using the reset button for turning the device on/off is typically unecessary: the device powers on by default as soon as it receives power, and it can be configured to sense vehicle ignition with a timed delay for power off.

RS-232 (serial port) – This is a serial DE-9 (commonly called "DB-9"), 9-pin female connector. The pins are numbered from the top right as shown here:

LEDs


imagePOWER

  • Green = Powered ON.
  • No Light = Not receiving power. Check the power switch and the power source connection.
  • Flashing Amber = Attention. Open the administration pages (see Accessing the Administration Pages) and check the router status.

imageWiFi BROADCAST

These two LEDs indicate activity on the WiFi broadcast for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

  • 2.4G (green) = 2.4 GHz WiFi is on and operating normally.
  • 5G (blue) = 5 GHz WiFi is on and operating normally.

imageEXTERNAL USB MODEM

Indicates the status of external USB modems.

imageINTEGRATED MODEM

Indicates the status of integrated modems.

Both integrated and external USB modems have the following LED indicators:

  • Green = Modem has established an active connection.
  • Blinking Green = Modem is connecting.
  • Amber = Modem is not active.
  • Blinking Amber = Data connection error. No modem connection possible.
  • Blinking Red = Modem is in the process of resetting.

imageSIGNAL STRENGTH

Blue LED bars indicate the active modem’s signal strength.

  • 4 Solid Bars = Strongest signal.
  • 1 Blinking Bar = Weakest signal. (A blinking bar indicates half of a bar.)

ADDITIONAL LED INDICATIONS

  • The USB and modem lights turn amber and blink twice to signal factory reset.
  • Two of the modem LEDs blink red in unison for 10 seconds when there is an error during firmware upgrade.
