The m106 comes with a pre-installed SIM, and the SIM number, aka ICCID, can be located on the bottom of the retail package.

Apply light pressure to the existing SIM card and it will pop out easily for you to replace

How to locate and replace your SIM

To turn it on, press and hold the power button on the side of the device (not the LED), for 3-4 seconds. The m106 will take approximately 1 minute to fully boot up with service. To turn it off, press and hold the power button until you see all the LED lights turn off.

How to Power on/off your device

Your battery level is shown on the LED icon on the far left that looks like 4 dots. With your m106 device powered on or off, simply press the power button quickly, and the battery lights will light up showing the current battery level.

You can perform a network reset by pushing and holding the button inside the reset pin hole for 3 seconds. If you need to factory reset your m106, press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds, and the router will do a hard reset back to factory settings. All user data will be cleared. Another option for resetting your device is by logging into your online device management portal. Detailed instructions can be found in your User Guide here.

Static IP’s can be purchased and assigned by the service carrier. The device will then need to be set to use the new APN. Once you have obtained a static IP, please follow the steps below for configuration:

1. Connect to the router.
2. Open a web browser and navigate to
3. The username is root and the password is on the bottom of the router.
4. Once on the dashboard, in the Verizon group, choose Manual Setup.
5. Change the APN value to the required static APN (should be in the form xx01.vzwstatic. This is based on region, so it is different based on location of customer. Your Verizon rep should have provided this information as well.)
6. Click Apply.

There are 2 ways to change your wifi password. You can log into the goodcloud instance and on the first page select the modify button under the 2.4G WiFi status widget and change it there or you can log into the unit directly using either ethernet or WiFi and direct a browser to and using the login root with the password printed on the bottom of your unit. Once logged in you will need to click on the wireless tab on the left and then click the modify button in the middle. Alter the Wi-Fi Key setting with your new password then hit apply.

IP Passthrough is also sometimes referred to as bridge mode. This turns the router into a device capable of passing the connection through to another device to handle the main routing for your internal network. To enable IP passthrough:

  2. Open a web browser and navigate to
  3. Enter the username root and the password shown on the bottom of the router.

  6. Choose auto subnet mode and Apply the changes.
  7. To put your m106 back into standard router mode, press and hold the reset button  for 15 seconds to revert back to factory settings.

Placement can be key in receiving a decent signal with minimal interference. Best practices are closer to external walls of the building and or near windows. Try to stay away from sources of interference like microwaves and florescent lights and heavy electrical devices. If necessary, an external antenna can be added to reach other areas able to find a cleaner signal. A site survey can also go a long way to remediating any signal issues you may be experiencing.
