This guide will walk you through the process of configuring your Pepwave On-The-Go SUS-AGN1 router for use as a WiFi Client that will bridge an internet connection from a Host Router to a MiniTrack. This type of setup is useful for Gatorless splits. This configuration is best used with a Pepwave already configured as a Host.

- Provide power to the Pepwave and connect it to your PC using an Ethernet cable.

- Now enter 192.168.20.1 into your search bar and press enter.
- Click Settings, then select the Misc. tab.

You are now ready to use your Pepwave Client Router to connect a MiniTrack to the internet.
To test configuration, insert a USB modem into the Host Router and power it on, plug the Client router into a MiniTrack using the USB cable, and then connect the Client router to the controller with the Ethernet cable. Wait for both the routers' and the modem’s boot sequences to complete. This can take a couple minutes, depending on the modem you are using.
Finally, attempt to establish a connection on your MiniTrack, first ensuring that the Server address is set to 188.8.131.52.
