Question / Issue
Using the Verizon Wireless / Pantech UML295 with the LAN-Cell 3

Answer / Solution

Before using the Pantech UML295 modem in the LAN-Cell 3, Proxicast recommends making several configuration changes to the modem.

  • Insert the UML295 modem into a PC.
  • Open a web browser to http://192.168.32.2 access the modem's configuration page.
  • If you are presented with the option of installing the "Enhanced App", Proxicast recommends that you do not install it.  Use the web browser based interface instead.
  • Select the Settings menu (Figure 1).
  • On the Settings tab select the Auto Connect Device Connection Preference and click the Save Settings button.

  • If you require remote access (inbound) connections to devices attached to the LAN-Cell 3, please see this article on additional configuration required for the UML295 modem:
    http://www.proxicast.com/AbsoluteFM/?f=272
  • You may now remove the UML295 from your PC.

 

NOTE: The UML295 requires LAN-Cell 3 firmware version 5.3.2 or later

  • On the LAN-Cell 3's SETUP>WAN>USB screen, set the Connection Type to "4G DirectIP Modems", the Modem Brand to "Pantech", the Modem Model to "UML295" and the APN Type to "Auto" (Figure 2).

  • Click Save Settings at the bottom of the screen.
  • Insert the UML295 modem into the LAN-Cell 3.


The LAN-Cell 3 will now begin communications with the UML295 modem. You may observe the USB interface going up and own several times while the initial connection is established. Once complete, the USB WAN section of the status column will appear as shown in Figure 3, and the Router Status screen will be similar to Figure 4.

Since the UML295 defaults to use 192.168.32.0/24 subnet, you must not use this subnet on the LAN-Cell or any other networks accessible by the LAN-Cell.

The UML295 has two external antenna ports. For best results, use the "top" port (Figure 5). Use antenna pigtail ANT-104-290 for this port.

 IMPORTANT NOTE:

By default, the firmware currently available on the Verizon Wireless/Pantech UML295 modem does not allow “inbound” initiated connections from the Internet to the modem. For remote access applications such VNC, pcAnywhere, camera and DVR viewing, etc. additional modem configuration settings are required. To work around this issue, you must obtain a public static IP address from Verizon Wireless and modify the UML295 parameters as outlined in this article:
http://www.proxicast.com/AbsoluteFM/?f=272 

Or you can have the LAN-Cell 3 initiate an outbound VPN connection to a VPN server (e.g another LAN-Cell, Cisco, Juniper, SonicWall, etc.) to create a two-way communications tunnel.

The UML295 does permit all types of "outbound" Internet connections. It is appropriate for shared Internet service among multiple users, Wi-Fi HotSpots, or other applications where data is "pushed" from the LAN-side to a remote server.

These limitations may be removed in a future firmware release from Pantech, but no timeframe has been announced.
