I am trying to learn a system that has already been configured by others which is always harder than starting from the beginning.
On 192.168.25.1 I have a Balance one. On 192.168.50.1 I have a BR1.
The BR1 has a SIM card in and the SIM card has plenty of data.
When I connect to the Ssid provided and input the pw it gives me an IP address in the range xx.xx.25.xx and a router of xx.xx.25.1.
I am unable to connect to the internet with these settings either by WiFi or by devices such as TVs connected by wire.
On my phone if I use a manual up setting and keep the IP and subnet the same, but this time change the router to xx.xx.50.1 I get internet instantly. I turned off cellular data on my phone to check and it still works with data off.
There is a strange thing that the internet was working when connected by WiFi 1-2 days ago … the system rebooted (or something) around a similar time.
So my question is, what’s going on?
When connecting to the WiFi, the correct ip/router etc should be passed to my phone?
Why when I put in the direct IP address of the Pepwave does it work?
Any suggestions or places to look would be greatly appreciated.
