Warning

The LAN ports do not support the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). Two or more ports connected to another Layer 2 switch, or connected to 2 or more different interconnected switches, could create a flooding loop between the switches. This can cause the router to stop functioning until the loop is resolved.

Other Ports

  • Power (12 VDC with threaded locking connector)

  • Recessed Reset Button (performs a reset to factory default)

  • USB 2.0

  • Micro SIM

  • Console (Mini-USB)
