Monitoring Data Usage & Setting Bandwidth Allowance on Pepwave

Modified on Fri, 20 May 2022 at 10:14 AM




This article explains how to check how much bandwidth you have used on your Pepwave device over a period of time in total. This article also covers how to set bandwidth limits on your Pepwave device to avoid hitting data caps that may cause suspension on your data account. 





Step 1Open a web browser and visit for MAX routers: 192.168.50.1 and for Balance routers: 192.168.1.1 .
 


 




Step 2: Login to the web admin using your login credentials. The default credentials are username "admin" password "admin" however the password may have been changed as the first time you login to the device it requires you to set a new password.



 



Step 3:  navigate to the status tab as shown at the to of this screenshot below. Once on the status page click on the "Monthly" tab under "Usage Reports" which we will use for this article.  



This screen will show you all of the monthly usage across all of your WAN sources. Before you begin to explore the data we recommend you select the specific SIM card you wish to explore. Then we recommend selecting the GB view which will sort your data usage in Gigabytes which is easier to match up to what your data provider is allowing for usage. See below screenshot for details.








Disabling SIM Cards When a Specific Data Limit Is Reached



Step 4.1:  Navigate to the Dashboard tab of your administration console and select the cellular details tab next to the cellular modem you wish to enable limits on.






This will open the cellular details popup window that shows you all of the details associated with your cellular modem and sim card. Scroll down to the Cellular Settings section and then look for the Bandwidth Allowance Monitor section.



Step 4.2: Check the box to enable the Bandwidth Allowance Monitor. See screenshot below, note that setting below may be different than your modem, please only update the settings under the Bandwidth Allowance Monitor unless otherwise instructed to do so. 





   Step 4.3: Lastly scroll down to the bottom of the page and his Save & Apply. This step is very important. See screenshot        below. 



Your bandwidth allowance monitor is now active! Nice work!
