Getting Started with MTAC-ETH card

To startup the MTAC-ETH card:

    1. Install the MTAC-ETH in the back panel of your Conduit®. Refer to Installing an mCard Accessory Card.
    2. When you boot up the Conduit with the MTAC-ETH card inserted, an additional ethernet interface named either ‘eth1’  or ‘eth2″ appears (depending on which port you used for the card, port 1 or 2 respectively).
    3. By default, it is not configured. You can see it by running ‘ifconfig -a’.
    4. To configure eth1, edit /etc/network/interfaces and add the appropriate lines (see below).
        •        For DHCP/auto configuration:

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

        •         For static address:

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address X.X.X.X
netmask X.X.X.X
gateway X.X.X.X   (specify if you need a route to the Internet for example)

5. Save the file. Then, reboot or run ‘ifup eth1’.

Note: For AEP firmware versions 1.4.x or older, the device does not support any kind of WAN management or configuration from the web UI.
