How do I change a Pelican gateway from static back to DHCP?

Follows these steps to reset the gateway back to DHCP:

  1. Remove the Ethernet cable from the gateway’s Ethernet port.
  2. Power up the gateway. 
  3. Look for a solid LAN light on the bottom of the gateway.
  4. Plug in the Ethernet cable into the gateway’s Ethernet port within 5 seconds after seeing a solid LAN light.
  5. The gateway is now in DHCP mode.
Note: If you do not plug the Ethernet cable back in within 5 seconds after seeing the solid LAN light, the gateway will revert to the static IP address and not DHCP.
