cnPilot R-series Home Routers Important Configuration Parameters

Before I starting on the subject on this article I wish to highlight some important changes intoduced in the recent firmware releases starting 4.3.4-R8 and beyond. In case users are finding difficulty accessing their devices post an upgrade, they must review this information and proceed.

Note 1. By default, http access is disabled. Only https is allowed.
Note 2. By default, UI access over WAN is disabled for security concerns. Can be enabled if required.
Note 3. By default, SNMP access over WAN interface is disabled for security concerns. Can be enabled if required.
It is recommended to change the administrator password before enabling any one of the above.

Below is the list of important configuration parameters for R-series along with their descriptions.

These can be pushed via the "User Defined Overrides" in cnMaestro. For details refer to the article below.

How do you enable more SSID’s

Hi @SKYNET360. I don’t have the commands on hand but a good way to find this for any configuration setting is to export the full configuration from a test device, make the desired changes on the device’s web GUI, and then export the full configuration from the device again.

Compare the two configuration files with a diff tool to see what changed and what commands should be used in a Template or AP Group’s Advanced Configuration.

Hi @SKYNET360, If you want to enable SSID from device override, these are the commands:
Maximum 4 SSID can be enabled for each radio band.

SSID1=${SSID1=2.4G_Name}
SSID2=${SSID2=2.4G_Name2}
SSID3=${SSID3=2.4G_Name3}
SSID4=${SSID4=2.4G_Name4}
WPAPSK1=${SSID_PASSWORD1=default}
WPAPSK2=${SSID_PASSWORD2=default}
WPAPSK3=${SSID_PASSWORD3=default}
WPAPSK4=${SSID_PASSWORD4=default}
RTDEV_SSID1=${5G_SSSID1=5G_Name}
RTDEV_SSID2=${5G_SSSID2=5G_Name2}
RTDEV_SSID3=${5G_SSSID3=5G_Name3}
RTDEV_SSID4=${5G_SSSID4=5G_Name4}
RTDEV_WPAPSK1=${5G_SSID_PASSWORD1=default}
RTDEV_WPAPSK2=${5G_SSID_PASSWORD2=default}
RTDEV_WPAPSK3=${5G_SSID_PASSWORD3=default}
RTDEV_WPAPSK4=${5G_SSID_PASSWORD4=default}
