Getting started

M!DGE Wireless Router will only operate reliably over the cellular network if there is a strong signal. For many applications a flexible stub antenna would be suitable but in some circumstances it may be necessary to use a remote antenna with an extension cable to allow the antenna itself to be positioned so as to provide the best possible signal reception.

  1. Install the SIM card
    Insert a SIM card into the SIM socket. Make sure the SIM is enabled for data transmission.

  2. Connect and fit the cellular antenna
    If needed, contact RACOM for suitable antennas and other details.

  3. Connect the LAN cable
    Connect one M!DGE Ethernet port to your computer using an Ethernet cat.5 cable.

  4. Connect the power supply
    Connect the power supply wires to the M!DGE screw terminals, ensuring correct polarity. Switch on the power supply.

  5. Setting of IP address of the connected computer
    By default the DHCP server is enabled, thus you can allow the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on your computer to lease an IP address from the M!DGE. Wait approximately 20 seconds until your computer has received the parameters (IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS server).
    As an alternative you can configure a static IP address on your PC (e.g. so that it is operating in the same subnet as the M!DGE. The M!DGE default IP address for the first Ethernet interface is, the subnet mask is

  6. Start setting up using a web browser
    Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. In the address field of the web browser, enter default IP address of M!DGE (i.e.; initial screen will appear. Follow the instructions and use the M!DGE Web Manager to configure the device.
