    Hi @JonasB

    An APN is the name of a gateway between a cellular network and another network, such as the Internet. For the Zyxel Device to connect to a cellular network, an APN is essential. Typically, when you insert the SIM card into your device, the APN settings are automatically configured by the service provider.

    Different APNs may provide different services, such as Internet access or MMS (Multi-Media Messaging Service), and different charging methods.

    Configuring APN 2 allows you to potentially access different services. If you're interested in exploring varied services, you can inquire with your service provider for the specific APN information.

    Hi @JonasB

    Your screenshot shows that your cellular WAN2 is currently disabled.

    Both cellular WAN1 and WAN2 on Nebula FWA510 will be enabled simultaneously when you configure two manual Access Point Names (APNs) on your mobile router. Specifically, APN 1 corresponds to WAN 1, while APN 2 corresponds to WAN 2.

    Thanks for the answer - can it be used to improve performance or only for adding more networks?
