Are you locked-out from the Canopy Software? Well, here's a guide for you to override it so that you can change the settings again.  :cool:

Again, I will not be responsible for any damages this may cause you. Use at your own risk!

This override plug resets the LAN 1 IP address to The plug allows the operator to access the module through the default configuration without changing the configuration. The operator can then view and reset any non-default values.

Acquiring the Override Plug

To fabricate an override plug:

1. Install an RJ-11 6-pin connector onto a 6-inch length of CAT 5 cable.

2. Pin out all 6-pins.

3. Short (solder or twist together) Pins 4 and 6 on the other end. Do not connect any other wires to anything. The result should be as follows:

Pin 1 → white / orange ← Pin 1

Pin 2 → white / green ← Pin 2

Pin 3 → white / blue ← Pin 3

Pin 4 → green ← Pin 6

Pin 5 → blue ← Pin 5

Pin 6 → orange← Pin 4

here's how you should number your RJ-11 6-pin socket..


Using the Override Plug

The operator can regain access to the module as follows:

1. Insert override plug into the RJ-11 GPS sync port of the module.

2. Apply power to the module through the Ethernet cable.

RESULT: The module reboots with the default IP address of, password fields blank, and all other configuration values as previously set.

3. Set passwords as desired.

4. Change configuration values if desired.

5. Save the settings.

6. Remove the override plug.

7. Power cycle the module.

hope this helps.. :wink:

here's my default plug pics:






hope this helps.. :wink:

this is so noobie... why not just get 1 wire and  put 1 end to the number 6 slot and the other to number 4 coz thats the main idea here wtf hahahah

My family is signing up for Xplornet Wireless (after using their Ku-band satellite for two years, I am forcibly against this, but its either this or dialup (and I have a dialup modem just in case ;) )) and I was wondering which options are favourable to change in the SM config. The only things I can think of after reading the SM manual are NAT (so my router gets an IP from the AP and not the SM), and setting power control to normal, so there isnt an 18dB attenuation. Is there anything Im missing? I'm trying to read up as much as possible beforehand, so I know what Im getting myself into.

Also, there is a site mentioned in the Manual that sells the override plugs:


Unfortunately I dont have a credit card, so I cant order one and see what the quality is like, but I would assume they at least work.

Outta curiosity, why are you guys using all six wires and just twisting the two together? Personally, Id just crimp a jumper between 4 and 6, and glue a boot over the plug to give you something to grab onto.

Whatever floats your boat then. personally, I'd use all 6 wires, since I'm not that good at crimping because my hands have become shaky.

hi, im trying to override my canopy, im not sure if its still working or not because its been hanging around for 1 1/2yrs now, its not giving up IP from dhcp anymore. hoping that override can to the trick, how long will i need to stick the plug on the slot after powering it up? btw, im not using an actual rj-11 plug for it, just a wire..
