BeamOS – Setup Wizard


Summary #

The Setup Wizard is a tool that offers a simplified version of other WebUI pages used to set some of the router’s most relevant parameters:

You will be greeted with the Setup Wizard the first time you login, after you have changed the router’s default password. On other logins you will be redirected to the Overview page, but you can reach the Setup Wizard any time via the System → Setup Wizard page.

This page is an overview of the Setup Wizard tool for BEAM WiFi routers.

Set new password #

On your very first login you will be required to change the router’s default password. This is done for safety reasons. In many cases routers are used to provide access to remote networks and systems. Since many manufacturers use similar default passwords (like admin, admin01, admin123, etc.) it is easy for attackers to gain access to routers that use such passwords and compromise the systems behind them. Therefore, to avoid such malicious attacks, this step is mandatory and you will not able to access the rest of the WebUI before you change the password.

The new password must contain:

  • 8-32 characters;
  • at least one upper case letter;
  • at least one lower case letter;
  • at least one digit.

After you have entered the new password, click ‘Save’. Afterwards you will be redirected to the first page of the Setup Wizard.

General #

The General section is used to configure the router’s time settings.

If you wish to set the router’s time zone settings later instead, you can do so via the Services → NTP page.

Mobile #

The Mobile section is used to configure the router’s SIM card parameters.

BeamOS Networking setup wizard mobile screen

Field NameValueDescription
APNstring; default: noneAn Access Point Name (APN) is a gateway between a GSM, GPRS, 3G or 4G mobile network and another computer network. Depending on the contract, some operators may require you to enter the APN just to complete the registration to a network. In other cases an APN is used to get special parameters from the operator (e.g., a public IP address) depending on the contract.
Important note: an APN Network Identifier cannot start with any of the following strings: “rac”, “lac”, “sgsn” or “rnc”; it cannot end in “.gprs” and it cannot take the value “*”.
PIN numberstring; default: noneA 4-digit long numeric password used to authenticate the modem to the SIM card.
Dialing numberstring; default: noneA dialing number required to establish a mobile PPP connection.
MTUstring; default: nonestring; default: noneSets the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size. It is the largest size of a protocol data unit (PDU) that can be transmitted in a single network layer transaction.
Authentication methodCHAP | PAP | None; default: NoneThe method that your carrier uses to authenticate new connections on its network. If you select PAP or CHAP you will be required to enter a username and password.
Service mode2G only | 3G only | 4G (LTE) only Automatic; default: AutomaticPreffered service type.
Show mobile info at login pageyes | no; default: noWhen this field is checked, information about the router’s mobile connection will be displayed in the login page.

If you wish to set the router’s Mobile settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → Mobile page.


The LAN section is used to configure the router’s local area network (LAN) and DHCP server settings. A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server can automatically configure the TCP/IP settings for any device that requests such a service. If you connect a device that has been configured to obtain an IP address automatically, the DHCP server will lease out an IP address from the available IP pool and the device will be able to communicate within the router’s private network.

Field NameValueDescription
IP addressip; default: LAN interface’s IPv4 address. An IP address identifies a device on a network and allows it to communicate with other devices
Netmasknetmask; default: netmask is used to define how “large” a network is by specifying which part of the IP address denotes the network and which part denotes the device
IPv6 Prefix Lengthip; Default: 60Delegates a prefix length for this interface
ULA Prefixip; Default: ” “Prefix used for the Unique Local Address
DHCPv6 serverEnabled | Relayed | Disabled; default: EnabledState of DHCPv6 server
RA serverEnabled | Relayed | Disabled; default: EnabledState of Router Advertisement server
NDP serverEnabled | Relayed | Disabled; default: EnabledState of the Neighbour Discovery Protocol server
Enable DHCPoff | on; default: onTurns the DHCP server on or off
Startinteger [1..255]; default: 100The starting IP address value. e.g., if your router’s LAN IP is and your subnet mask is that means that in your network a valid IP address has to be in the range of [] ( is a special unavailable address). If the Start value is set to 100 then the DHCP server will only lease out addresses starting from
Limitinteger [1..255]; default: 150How many addresses the DHCP server can lease out. Continuing from the example above: if the start address is and the server can lease out 150 addresses, available addresses will be from to (100 + 150 – 1 = 249; this is because the first address is inclusive)
Lease timeinterger [2..999999]; default: 12A DHCP lease will expire after the amount of time specified in this field and the device that was using the lease will have to request a new one. However, if the device stays connected, its lease will be renewed after half of the specified amount of time passes (e.g., if lease time is 12 hours, then every 6 hours the device will ask the DHCP server to renew its lease).
The minimal amount of time that can be specified is 2 minutes
UnitsHours | Minutes; default: HoursLease time measuring units

If you wish to set the router’s LAN and DHCP settings later instead, you can do so via the Network → LAN page.

WiFi #

The WiFi section is used to configure the router’s WiFi access point (AP). A WiFi access point is a type of wireless interface that provides WiFi access to connecting clients.

Important: If your device batch number is lower than 034, Key and Cipher default values may differ from shown examples below.

Field NameValueDescription
Enable wirelessyes | no; default: yesTurns the WiFi access point on or off.
SSIDstring; default: BEAM_(last 4 symbols of WiFi MAC)The Service Set Identifier (SSID) is an identification string (name) for the access point. It is how the access point will be seen by connecting devices.
ModeAuto | 802.11b | 802.11g | 802.11g+n; default: 802.11g+nWiFi access point’s operating mode. Different modes provide different data throughput speeds and and security options.
ChannelWiFi channel number | auto; default: autoWiFi channel used by the access point. When this field is set to ‘auto’, the access point will choose the least populated channel.
EncryptionNo encryption | WPA-PSK | WPA2-PSK | WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Mixed Mode | WPA-EAP | WPA2-EAP; default: WPA2-PSKThe type of encryption used by the access point.
Cipherauto | Force CCMP (AES) | Force TKIP | Force TKIP and CCMP (AES); default: Force TKIP and CCMP (AES)An algorithm for performing encryption and decryption.
Keystring; default: unique to each deviceA password used to authenticate users to the access point. New devices have a unique WiFi password which can be located on a sticker on the bottom of the device.
Country codecountry code; default: 00 – WorldUses ISO/IEC 3166 alpha2 country codes to define some WiFi parameters.


This section is used to configure the settings required to connect the router to the RMS (Remote Management System) – a cloud system designed by Teltonika and intended for remote monitoring and management of the BEAM WiFi routers.

When connection type is set to ‘Enabled’, the router attempts to connect to RMS every 2-5 minutes. To skip this wait, click the ‘Connect’ button to initiate a connection instantly.

If you wish to set the router’s RMS settings later instead, you can do so via the System → Administration → RMS page.
