# Gateway 2.4: Simplified Networking and Internal Components Updates

We are pleased to announce the release of Enapter Gateway v2.4, which is a new version of the gateway software that brings tool to simplify the process of setting up complex network configurations and overall system reliability improvements. This update includes a range of new features and improvements that enhance the performance, functionality, and security of the Enapter Gateway.

Version 2.4.1 was released on Jan 2, 2024.

# Network Pre-configuration

Version 2.4.1 introduces a significant feature: the ability to pre-configure networking settings via a YAML file. This simplifies the setup of complex network configurations, often required by IoT devices operating in diverse network environments. Network configurations can now be predefined and loaded from a USB stick, streamlining the deployment and initial setup of IoT devices. This method not only saves time but also minimizes the risk of manual configuration mistakes.

# Example


In the following configuration examples, please replace MyWifiSSID with your Wi-Fi network SSID and pa$$word with your network's password.

To configure the Gateway for connection to a WPA Personal wireless network, use the following file:

  version: 2
  renderer: NetworkManager
        name: "*"
      dhcp4: yes
          password: "pa$$word"

For more details on how to use this feature, refer to our instructions guide.
