Peplink/Pepwave Compatibility Chart

This list contains the compatible modems for use with the Pepwave and Peplink routers. If your modem is not on the list, read this before ordering!

WiFi-as-WAN Devices

The Pepwave Max, Surf SOHO, and Surf On-The-Go routers support "WiFi as WAN," meaning they are capable of connecting to an external WiFi hotspot as its source of internet connectivity. If you have a device that broadcasts WiFi - like the Verizon Jetpacks or a smartphone with the hotspot feature active (phones like the iPhone and many Droid devices have this option) - you can connect those routers to your hotspot/phone via WiFi as WAN. Your hotspot/phone will not tether directly to the router, but the router will pick up your device's WiFi signal and create a network from that. The Balance routers do NOT support this feature.

1 - These 3G/4G modems are supported, BUT you will need to manually switch between 3G and 4G (the router cannot auto-switch between 3G and 4G modes with these modems). For the Verizon UML290, you'll need to follow the instructions on this page to lock it to 3G.

2 - These hotspot devices will not tether directly to the router via USB, but you can connect this router to your hotspot/phone via WiFi as WAN. The router will pick up your device's WiFi signal and create a network from that. (NOT SUPPORTED ON THE BALANCE ROUTERS!)

3 - Before using the AT&T Momentum in a router, it is recommended that you disable "modem shutdown" to minimize disconnects. Changing this setting first will allow the Momentum to connect each time without issue:

  1. In the Sierra Watcher sotware, click the "Menu" icon and select "Options".
  2. Click the "General" tab and select "Startup/Shutdown".
  3. Select "Do Nothing" from the "On Exit" drop-down menu and click "Apply", then "OK".

4 - The UML295 works with the Peplink Balance/Max routers for basic use, but full support is not available. We do not recommended using the UML295 with a Peplink router for remote applications because manual resets may be necessary.
