TravelNet’s Cellular Router System is Preconfigured

And Ready to Install with these Easy Steps

Installation Instructions:

1. Install the TravelNet Router and Edimax Router equipment in a convenient place such as upper cabinet (Velcro works well on the base of the each unit). Mount

the unit so that the diagnostic lights can be viewed without moving the TravelNet Router and the Edimax Wireless Router.

2. Locate the 2 antennas on the roof away from other obstructions

Also, you will need sealant as recommended by your coach manufacturer, stainless screws (4) to anchor the aluminum ground plane to roof, cable clips to anchor cable, cable entry cover plate.

Warning – You must connect antennas to the SMA style antenna connectors on the TravelNet Cell Router before turning it on. Failure to do this could result in erratic start up behavior and could possibly damage the unit.

Figure 1

Position the antennas near the cable entry point. Here the TravelNet unit was located in the front overhead (Figure 1) with the antennas mounted close by on the roof.

To connect your Windows Vista computer to your wireless network

View and connect to available wireless networks

Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.

Connect to.

2.In the Show list, clickWireless.

You'll see a list of the wireless networks currently available. If you do not see a network listing similar to this example: TravelNet 1234, it may be necessary to reset power on the WiFi router, wait 45 to 60 seconds and refresh the “View Available Wireless Networks”.

You'll see a list of the wireless networks currently available.
