We have recently purchased a PepWave MAX BR1 (LTE) router, and everything seems great on it.
We have 2 specific requirements that the device doesn’t seem to support, and wanted to request if they could be considered.
We need to be able to disable the onboard DHCP server, and instead configure the device to act as a DHCP relay, and configure a DHCP server address for it to relay too.
I understand others have requested this too, so i’d like to put my vote behind it
Disabl****e NAT on Cellular Connection
We current have remote site offices that have a number of computers. They use a 3G router which connects them into a private IP VPN by Telstra, which allows all of our sites to talk back to our datacentre, as well as each other. They do not access the internet via the 3G connection, so we need to be able to disable NAT on the cellular interface.
We want to use the PepWave MAX BR1 (LTE) router as a replacement for our 3G devices where a 4G service is available. I understand we are able todo this on the WAN port, by changing the “Routing Mode” to “IP Forwarding” from “NAT”.
Currently we are using a Billion router, which allows to plug in an external USB 4G dongle. But this still has the ability to disable NAT on the USB/4G interface.
Here is a screenshot of the option to disable it on the Billion router
There is also the option on a NetGear 4G device. (http://media.netcomm.com.au/public/assets/pdf_file/0009/96084/3G41WT-User-Guide.pdf) See page 19/45. With the “NAT Masquerading” option.
Are we able to get this option too? As we REALLY would prefer to use the PepWave device, as it’s a much sturdier device, but this specific option is stopping us.
