Before we begin the setup, there are a few things to take note of: 


  • Make sure your router supports eSIM. Peplink devices that support 5G/LTE plans will also support eSIMs. 
  • The firmware on your router should be updated to 8.4.0 or newer. 
  • The router needs to be covered under an active Care Plan. 
  • eSIM profiles can be reusable or non-reusable. Make sure you know which type of eSIM you have before uploading to a device. 


Now, let’s get started!
