Internet access via UMTS with a bintec R1200wu
This FAQ describes the configuration of an internet access via UMTS (T-Mobile) with a bintec R1200wu with bootimage 7.4.10 patch 3

1. Preliminary Notes

  • The bootimage for the bintec R1200wu has to be 7.1.10 patch 3 or higher.
  • This example uses a bintec R1200wu with bootimage 7.1.10 patch 3.
  • Only UMTS cards which are compatible to the R1200wu may be used (info at www.funkwerk-ec.com, PRODUCTS, Router, R1200wu).
  • This example uses an UMTS card "Multimedia Net Card GPRS/UMTS/W-LAN" (OPTION GT Fusion+) from T-Mobile with an appropriate serial number.
  • The configuration of the UMTS interface is done in the Setup Tool, in the "UMTS6-0" menu, the internet connection in the "WAN Partner" menu.
  • This configuration is only permitted with inserted UMTS-card.

2. Configuration

2.1 UMTS-Interface

As soon as the UMTS-Card is inserted correctly, the UMTS menu will be available.

R1200 Setup Tool                       Funkwerk Enterprise Communications GmbH
[UMTS]: Settings                                                         r1200

        UMTS Adminstatus       : enable
        UMTS PIN               : ****

        Additional Initstring  : ATX3E0
        Access Point Name (APN): internet.t-mobile
        Incoming call action   : isdnlogin

        Current Modem Status   : up
        UMTS Network Provider  : T-Mobile D
        UMTS Signal Quality    : -91 dB (low)
        Last Modem Command     : AT+CSQ

          SAVE                                         CANCEL
The UMTS card is activated by entering the correct UMTS PIN.
For the correct "Access Point Name (APN)" please ask your provider.

2.2 UMTS WAN-Partner

The configuration of the UMTS WAN Partner corresponds to ADSL- and ISDN- Internet WAN Partners (as Dynamic Client, incl. NAT, Default Route etc.). In order to monitor the connection, the PPP Keepalives may be activated.
