About this task

These instructions are for additional settings that are required when you connect the CEG to an Ethernet network. You can change these settings after you complete the steps in Connecting the CEG to Wi-Fi for the first time.

You can use static or manual settings rather than automatic settings with your CEG. However, if you do so, you must contact your IT department for all necessary manual settings to ensure that your CEG works on your company's network.


  1. Connect an Ethernet cable to the router or cell modem.
  2. Determine if you must use Auto DHCP or static IP settings.
    • By default, Ethernet and Auto DHCP are set to On.
    • If you use a cell modem, you must use DHCP.
    • If you use a LAN connection, check with your IT department whether you must use Auto DHCP or static IP.
  3. While the CEG is connected over Wi-Fi, log on to the CEG UI, navigate to Settings and click Ethernet.
  4. Set Ethernet to ON and apply the settings as determined in Step 2.
  5. Click Save.
    By default, the CEG is configured to dynamically receive an IP address from your network through DHCP. Take note of the address that automatically appears in the IP Address field.
  6. Check that the ETH ACTIVITY LED and ETH LINK SPEED LED are blinking to verify activity.
  7. Enter the IP address that you noted in Step 5 into your browser address bar to access the CEG from other devices connected to the Ethernet network.


You can now use your CEG through the Ethernet connection.
