4G LTE Modem Network

The 4G LTE Modem Network section indicates the current status of the 4G LTE connection for a Firebox with an LTE modem.

Modem Status

The first part indicates if the LTE modem is enabled or disabled in the configuration.

The second part indicates the status of the SIM card and LTE connection:

  • Ready — A SIM card is installed, but not yet connected to the cellular network.
  • Not Ready — A SIM card is not installed.
  • Connected — A SIM card is installed and connected to the cellular network.
  • Locked — The SIM card is locked by the manufacturer to prevent unauthorized use. A PIN is required to unlock the SIM card.
  • Unlocked — A PIN has been successfully specified and the SIM card is unlocked, but not yet connected to the network.

    You can unlock a SIM card in Fireware Web UI or Firebox System Manager. For more information, see 4G LTE Modem Status.

Modem IP

The IP address of the LTE modem.

Signal

The name of the cellular service provider and the signal strength of the cellular connection.

Firmware Version

The firmware version of the LTE modem.

Signal Status

Reference Signal Received Power (RSRP)

Indicates the received signal power in decibels per milliwatt (dBm).

Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ)

Indicates the ratio of the received signal power (RSRP) to all levels of signals on the same frequency in decibels (dB). A higher RSRQ value indicates a better signal to noise ratio.

Wireless

The Wireless section displays information for each wireless network and connected wireless clients. For more information, see Configure Firebox Wireless.

SSID

For each SSID, you can view this information:

Name

The name of the wireless network.

Sent

The number of bytes sent through the wireless network.

Received

The number of bytes received through the wireless network.

Total

The total number of bytes sent and received through the wireless network.

Clients

The number of clients currently connected to the wireless network.

Wireless Clients

For each wireless client associated to an SSID on the Firebox, you can view this information:

MAC Address

The MAC address for the client device.

IP Address

The network IP address of the client device.

Host

The host name of the client device.

Sent

The number of bytes sent by the client device.

Received

The number of bytes received by the client device.

Signal Strength

The wireless signal power level of the wireless client.

Strong signal strength results in more reliable connections and higher speeds.

Signal strength is represented in -dBm format (0 to -100). This is the power ratio in decibels (dB) of the measured power referenced to one milliwatt.

The closer the value is to 0, the stronger the signal. For example, -40 dBm is better signal strength than -60 dBm.
