How to configure APN settings for Dusun 2G/3G/4G IoT Gateways

How to configure APN settings on Dusun 2G/3G/4G IoT gateway will be presented here.

Dusun 2G/3G/4G IoT gateways can connect the internet through 2G/3G/4G cellular networks. Dusun IoT gateways support 2G GPRS, 3G WCDMA, 4G LTE, 4G LTE-M(Cat-M, 4G NB-IoT technique. Users will need to configure APN settings when they want to connect Dusun 2G/3G/4G IoT gateways to the internet by 2G/3G/4G network. The APN or Access Point Name is the network Dusun 2G /3G/4G Gateway uses for internet access. You should get the APN (Access Point Name) settings from your mobile Internet service provider before doing this. This article provides steps on how to configure APN settings on Dusun 2G/3G/4G IoT gateway.

1. Configure an APN for Dusun 2G/3G/4G gateways


1) Launch a web browser from a device that is connected to the gateway. The device can be a computer that is directly connected to the gateway (figure1: connection type 1).
