How set mini 4G Router for cheating Camera

Using a mini 4G Router can give you an advantage because the router is smaller than a mobile phone and thus you will hide it more easily on your body. In terms of performance there is no difference: the camera will work just as well with both a mobile phone and a router.
If you choose to use a router you must make sure that it is not an older model that only works on 3G. There is a diverse range of brands and models on the market, you just have to check that it is compatible with 4G networks. The most commonly used brand is Huawei.

During the operation of setting up the router, the cheating mini button camera must be turned off.

Due to the fact that the configuration menus differ from one manufacturer to another we can only describe in detail the setting mode. Basically, you need to set up the Router by creating a Wi-Fi network called net caffe and the password copiat2019. The camera will know how to connect to any Wi-Fi network that has this name and password.

When choosing the Router you must take into account:

  • Buy the router in the country where you want to use it in order to be compatible with the GSM networks in your country.
  • For new Router models, if you buy it from the country where you want to use it, it will recognize the APN, Username and Password settings automatically for almost all GSM networks.

However, in some cases it may be necessary to enter the settings manually on a certain network. You may find that you have to enter APN, Username and Password manually given the fact that when you are on the Router settings page it does not connect to the GSM network.

In Romania, for example, if you use a Vodafone card for the first time in the Router, you will have to enter the APN, Username and Password in the Dial-up Router settings (search through settings until you find where you can enter APN manually because the menus differ).

You can search the internet settings of the network of your SIM card on Google or you can call customer relations in the network of your SIM card.

  • To be compatible with 4G LTE networks
  • Not to be blocked (coded) on a certain network – so you can always choose another GSM network that can have a better signal in the area where you want to use the camera.

In order to set up the router you need:

  • a Laptop or a Desktop Computer,
  • the 4G router that has a charged battery,
  • data cable from MicroUSB or Type C router as appropriate.

First option: Setting the Router with Data Cable

Check that the camera is turned off
Disconnect the internet cable from the Computer (Laptop) or disable the network card. If you use your laptop and are connected via Wi-Fi to the internet disconnect from all Wi-Fi networks or disable the wireless network card – A Very Important Operation!

You must have a SIM card that you will initially insert in your Mobile Phone.
When you start, the phone does NOT have to ask you to enter the PIN code. If this is required, after the phone starts, you will have to enter the security settings and disable the PIN code.

Warning: This operation is very important because if the SIM card has the PIN code enabled, when you insert the card in the Router and turn it on, it will not recognize the card.

Insert in the Router the SIM card with the disabled PIN code that has credit or an enabled internet option

On the Router, somewhere under the battery or on the back cover you will have to find a label where you will find information about Model, Series, IMEI Code, MAC Address, Serial Number, Wi-Fi network name and factory default password, but also an IP address like: 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.8 – this address differs from one manufacturer or model to another. Write down this IP address!

If you can’t find this IP address, you will have to see what brand and model of Router you have, go to Google and search for the IP connection address for your router.

On the label you will have to find a Username and a login password in the settings menu.

Usually if you have not changed them, they look like: User: admin Pass: admin or User: root Pass: admin. If you can’t find them on the label, go to Google and search it according to the brand and model of the router you have. Write down the Username and Password

Turn on the Router and connect the data cable to the Router and to the USB Port from the Computer (Laptop)

Wait 1-2 minutes. During this time, accept and install all requests if they appear on the screen – the drivers and the router application are installed and sometimes your consent may be required.

Open the Browser and type the IP address of your router,

Use the Username and Password previously noted to log in to the settings menu,

A page where you will have to search through the settings for the Wi-Fi Menu will load. The menus differ greatly from one Manufacturer to another.

When setting up the Wi-Fi network for your camera, you need to consider:

  • The Camera Works in the 2.4 GHz Band – so in the Wi-Fi setup menu if you have the option to choose between 2.4GHz and 5GHz choose 2.4GHz.
    Warning: The camera will NOT work on 5Ghz
  • Wi-Fi network name (SSID): net caffe
    Warning: all characters in lower case (including the first letter) and WITH space between words!!!
  • Wi-Fi network password (Password Key): copiat2019
  • If you leave the net caffe network without a password (Open) the camera will not be able to connect!!!
    Warning: All characters in lower case (including the first letter) and NO space!!!

Be very careful when entering characters, any wrong character, extra or missing space or capital letter entered will cause the camera not to recognize the Wi-Fi network!!!

Some Router models also have the function of hiding the Wi-Fi network: check the box where it says: SSID broadcast or Hide Device. This feature will make the created Wi-Fi network visible only to your camera.

Save the settings

Open another Browser page and try to enter a web page to check if the internet works.

To test if the new network is functional, search for available networks from your mobile phone. You will need to find the net caffe network, connect to it with the password copiat2019 and browse the internet to see if it works.
Warning: if you ticked the box with Hide device when you search on your phone you will not find the net caffe network. You will need to click Add Network + from the Wi-Fi menu of your phone and enter the net caffe network name and password copiat2019 manually.

Now only your phone and camera will see the new net caffe network.

If the internet does not work after saving the settings made, go to the main page (Home) of the router settings – the data cable between the Router and the Computer (Laptop) must not be disconnected all this time. Here you should have available information about the signal, type of network: 3G or 4G, data traffic and whether the

Router is connected to the GSM network. Some router models have attached a Display on the front where you can see this information without having to connect to a computer in the settings window, but you can only make the settings by connecting to a computer in the Browser on the settings page of your router.

If the GSM signal appears on the Home page but says it is disconnected, you will most likely have to manually enter the internet settings of your card’s network. You have to search through settings where you can enter APN, Username and Password.

Each GSM operator has its own settings that should automatically be recognized if you use a newer model router.

There may be rare cases when they need to be entered manually, if you use an older router or if it is purchased from a country other than the one where you want to use it. Go to Google and search for the APN, Username and Password settings for the network operator of your SIM card, or you can call your SIM card customer service and ask for this information.

Remember that different GSM operators have different settings: some, for example, may only have an APN and the Username or Password must be left blank – not all fields are required.

If this time the internet doesn’t work either, try to look for a video on Youtube in which you can see exactly how your Router model is set.
If the internet works, disconnect the Router from the computer (Laptop) by removing the data cable.

The second option: Setting the Router via Wi-Fi

This method involves using a Laptop or any Desktop Computer that has a wireless card. You can also use a Tablet or Mobile Phone but in this case the information will be visible on a smaller window, as the navigation and identification of the menu buttons are more difficult than on a Computer or Laptop.

On the Router, somewhere under the battery or on the back cover you will have to find a label where you will find information about Model, Series, IMEI Code, MAC Address, Serial Number, Wi-Fi network name and factory default password, but also an IP address looking like: 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.8 – this address differs from one manufacturer or model to another. Write down this IP address!

If you can’t find this IP address, you will have to see what brand and model of Router you have, go to Google and search for the connection IP address for your router.
We are interested in the following information on this label:

  • Standard Wi-Fi Network Name (SSID)
    Standard Wi-Fi Network Password (Key)
  • Connection IP address in the settings menu: Example: 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.8
  • Write down all this information because you will need it in the next steps!
  • On the label you will have to find a Username and a login password in the settings menu.

Usually if you have not changed it, it looks like: User: admin Pass: admin or User: root Pass: admin. If you can’t find it on the label, go to Google and search for the brand and model of the router you have. Write down the Username and Password

The steps to follow when using a Computer or a Laptop via Wi-Fi are very similar to those of the first version with the data cable:

Check that the camera is turned off
Remove the internet cable from the network card. If you use your Laptop and are connected via Wi-Fi to the internet disconnect from all Wi-Fi networks or disable the wireless network card – A Very Important Operation!

You must have a SIM card that you will initially insert in your Mobile Phone.
When you start, the phone should NOT ask you to enter the PIN code. If this is required, after starting the phone, you will have to enter in the security settings and disable the PIN code.

Warning: This operation is very important because if the card has the PIN code enabled, when you insert the card in the Router and turn it on, it will not recognize the card.

Insert in the Router the SIM card with the disabled PIN code that has a credit or an internet option enabled

Turn on the Router and wait about 1 minute,

Go to Computer or Laptop at the Wi-Fi network and search among the available Wi-Fi networks the name of the network you wrote down earlier

Connect to the Router network using the password written down earlier,

Open the Browser and type the IP address of your router written down earlier,

Use the Username and Password written down earlier to log in to the settings menu,

A page where you will have to search through the settings for the Wi-Fi Menu will load. The menus differ greatly from one Manufacturer to another.
When setting up the Wi-Fi network for your camera, you need to consider:

The Camera Works in the 2.4 GHz Band – so in the Wi-Fi setup menu if you have the option to choose between 2.4GHz or 5GHz choose 2.4GHz.

Warning: The camera will NOT work on 5Ghz

Wi-Fi network name (SSID): net caffe

Warning: all characters in lower case (including the first letter) and WITH space between words!!!

Wi-Fi network password (Pasword Key): copiat2019

If you leave the net caffe network without a password (Open) the camera will not be able to connect!!!

Warning: All characters in lower case (including the first letter) and NO space!!!
Be very careful when entering characters, any wrong character, extra or missing space or capital letter entered will cause the camera not to recognize the Wi-Fi network!!!!!!

Some router models also have the function of hiding the Wi-Fi network: check the box where it says: SSID broadcast or Hide Device. This feature will make the created Wi-Fi network visible only to your camera.

Save the settings

Open another Browser page and try to enter a web page in order to check if the internet works.

To test if the new network is functional, search available networks from your mobile phone. You will need to find the net caffe network, connect to it with the password copiat2019 and browse the internet to see if it works.

Warning: if you ticked the box with Hide device when you search on your phone you will not find the net caffe network. You will need to click on Add Network + from the Wi-Fi menu of your phone and enter the net caffe network name and password copiat2019 manually. Now only your phone and camera will see the new net caffe network.

If you want to set up the Router with a Phone or Tablet, all you have to do is connect to the factory-set Wi-Fi network – you can find it on the label on the router. Open the Browser and enter the setting IP address that you find on the router’s label. The rest of the steps are the same if you connect from a Laptop or PC via Wi-Fi.
