About this task

To replace an existing WRG1830 Gateway, complete the following steps:


  1. Backup the WRG1830 by referring to the Backup and Restore section of the WRG1830/ZFR183x Pro Series Wireless Field Bus User’s Guide (LIT-12013550).
    Important: Failure to back up a WRG before replacing may force a physical reset of all WEFC connected on that PAN. This is due to security certificates now mis-aligned between WRG and WEFC.
  2. Disconnect power from the WRG1830.
  3. Disconnect the connected ZFR1831 Coordinator Radio.
  4. Disconnect the network Ethernet cable.
  5. Remove the USB Wi-Fi dongle.
  6. Verify replacement WRG has the latest released firmware before connecting to wireless network.
  7. Replace with new WRG1830 and follow the steps in Installing the WRG1830 Wireless Router Gateway. Once the WRG Gateway is operational, the WRG Gateway automatically updates the firmware on the ZFR1831 Coordinator Radio if required.
  8. Allow up to 15 minutes for the WEFCs to rejoin the network.
