Frequently Asked Questions


ER-1000VZ and ER2000-VZ-CAT1 routers are compatible with Verizon One talk.

In order to configure the WAN port to act as a LAN port, you would need root access to the device using SSH.  

1. SSH into the device with your login credentials of the device.  The credentials by default are Username: root Password: password.
2. Navigate to the /etc/config/ directory by issuing the following command from the command line; cd /etc/config
3. Use your favorite text editor to edit the "network" file.  vi or vim works well, :  vi network would be the command using the vi tool.
4. Delete the "config interface 'wan'  interface from the file and change the LAN interface ifname to "eth0" see below in red.

cd /etc/config

vi network

config interface 'lan'
        option ifname 'eth0'
        option force_link '0'
        option type 'bridge'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''
        option ip6assign '60'
        list dns ''
        option macaddr '8c:c7:aa:00:c3:a5'

5. Add the following lines to the end of the file:

config switch
        option name 'switch1'
        option reset '1'
        option enable_vlan '0'

config switch_vlan
        option device 'switch1'
        option vlan '1'
        option ports '1 2 3 4 5 6t'

Once you have finished editing, press the esc button, then :wq! to save the changes.  Reboot the router, and your WAN port is now converted to an usable LAN port. If you have multiple devices requiring this configuration, you may create a backup of the configuration using the steps in the manual and restore the settings to any of the other devices.  This may be done via the Connected IO device management portal.

note: once you make these changes, you will no longer be able to use the WAN port for internet connectivity.  If you wish to revert these changes, you will need to reverse the steps above and add the WAN interface back to the file, or Factory reset the device to restore the default configurations back to the router. 

Default IP Address of the EMU Router is  The default username is root and password is password.

Open Terminal application, and type in the following command: sudo arp -a -d

In order SSH or HTTP into your ER1000 router remotely, you must first ensure you have a IP address that is reachable from the outside world.  Most cellular carriers provide you with a private IP address on their network.  That IP address is not reachable from the outside world.  Contact your cellular provider to obtain a public facing IP address then test the IP by bringing the router online and trying to Ping the IP from outside the network.

A WAN connected to another internet service provider normally has an reachable public IP address, so the forwarding rules would apply and allow access to your device over the WAN.

Steps for port forwarding:

1. Log into your ER1000 Router using the LAN connection by entering the the default IP address is in your browsers web address bar.
2. Enter your username and password to log in.  Default Username is root and default password is password. 
3. Click on the Networking tab and select Firewall.
4. Click "ADD NEW PORT" to create your port forwarding rule.
5. Enter a Description of the forwarding rule in the first box labled "description" 
6. Enter a port number you would like to use from the remote location outside the network to forward the request to. Something like 9000 would be fine.
7. This next step is important for http: and SSH connections, Enter the loopback IP address of the router in the "Destination IP" field, generally .  
8. Finally, add the internal port you would like to be forwarded to.  For SSH , the default port is port 22 .
9. If you have additional ports to forward, you may click "add new port" to add additional forwarding rules.

Once you review the entries, you may now click "Change" Once you click change, you will need to click the blue apply button that appears at the top right of the navigation bar.  

note: it may be necessary to reboot the router for some port forwarding rules to take effect.
