48. MU-MIMO
The HUMAX router has multiple user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) technology for improved wireless performance.
Each antenna communicates with each device to provide improved capacity over existing MIMO technology.
T9_MU-MIMO_1

Existing MIMO technology uses the SU-MIMO, causing communication to go to one device first and then to go other devices sequentially when multiple devices are present. However, the HUMAX router uses MU-MIMO technology which allows simultaneous communication to all devices at optimal speeds, increasing wireless capacity usage.
T9_MU-MIMO_2

This allows simultaneous streaming of multimedia services to multiple devices.
49. Restart & Factory Reset
The HUMAX router allows you to restart the device or return the router to the original factory settings.

50. Configuring Dual WAN
The HUMAX router has a two wide area networks (WAN) with a dual WAN capability.

Configure dual LAN by the following steps.

Note: To use both WAN, connect the LAN cable from the modem to the router and connect another USB mobile broadband modem or Android device to the router.
T9_ConfiguringDualWAN_1

Note: Internet service charges may occur from using mobile 3G, 4G, LTE, etc. WAN services.

Step 1
Open the browser of your preferred device and type http://dearmyrouter.net or http://192.168.1.1 in the address window to connect to HUMAX WEB UI.
Step 2
Go to the ‘NETWORK’ menu and click ‘Internet.’
(The menu may look different according to router model.)
T9_ConfiguringDualWAN_step2

Step 3
Enable ‘Dual WAN’ and select the primary and secondary WAN.

Configuring Dual WAN Fail Over
To enable the Dual WAN function, configure the Dual WAN Type to “Fail Over.” The primary WAN is the main WAN to use and the secondary WAN is a backup for use when the primary WAN internet connection is disconnected.
T9_ConfiguringDualWANFailOver

Both primary & secondary WAN support Ethernet, USB, and Android tethering.
1. Ethernet: The common WAN using an internet cable for communication
2. USB: A mobile modem with a USB port for communication (ex. HU7600, LG SD711, etc.)
3. Android tethering: An Android OS-based device using the tethering function through a USB port for communication (ex. Nexus 5X, Galaxy Note 5, LG V20 etc.)

Fail Over Type
When both WAN are connected to the internet, communication is through the primary WAN. If the primary WAN is disconnected from the internet, the secondary WAN is used to connect to the internet to minimize communication stoppage. If only one of the WAN is connected to the internet, communication is though that WAN.

The following shows the Ethernet as the primary WAN and an Android tethering as the secondary WAN.
T9_FailOverType

Configuring Dual WAN Load Balance

When using the Dual WAN function, configure the Dual WAN load balance. Select which will be the primary and secondary WAN. HUMAX recommends using the faster speed WAN as the primary WAN.
T9_ConfiguringDualWANLoadBalance

Both primary and secondary WAN support Ethernet, USB, and Android tethering.
1. Ethernet: The common WAN using an internet cable for communication
2. USB: A mobile modem with a USB port for communication (ex. HU7600, LG SD711, etc.)
3. Android tethering: An Android OS-based device using the tethering function through a USB port for communication (ex. Nexus 5X, Galaxy Note 5, LG V20 etc.)

Load Balance Type:

If two WANs are connected to the internet, both WANs are used. Therefore, both internet bandwidths are used, increasing internet speed versus using just one WAN. Each WAN communicates equally. There may be a difference in speed according to bandwidth, line status, connection status type, etc.

In the case when only one of the two WAN is used, communication is through the connected WAN.
The following shows an Ethernet WAN and USB Modem configuration.
T9_LoadBalanceType
51. Configuring Android Tethering WAN
The HUMAX router allows tethering of an Android device to the router’s USB port as an internet connection. The following shows the steps to configure Android Tethering WAN.

Note: To use the Android Tethering WAN, connect the Android device to the router with a USB cable. (Note: Android Tethering may not be supported by all Android versions, and the process may be different for your preferred Android device.)
