OK, so I think the HTTPS issue has finally been eliminated by TK Liew. Thanks, TK. However, I started having lots of DNS errors after the last settings adjustment he made (it was fine after he did it but it kept getting worse and worse). I was able to eliminate those by doing a factory reset and everything seems to be fine again (and I really hope it continues).
However, I came across another issue and one that might have been causing some of these issues before. It has to do with my PepwaveMAX OTG (which is WAN2 on my Balance One) so maybe I should post this elsewhere. Anyways here is the issue with the MOTG…
I am using Wifi as WAN with a hotspot device that doesn’t allow for tethering. It works fine most of the time but I live in a mediocre signal area so the signal is not always consistent (especially with bad weather that we are currently experiencing). Anyways, after I did the factory reset on the Balance One, I ran the “Setup Wizard” and connected to the MOTG and with the factory settings still intact, the WAN connection of the Balance One vanished (i.e., total loss of Internet connectivity).
I investigated and found that the Wifi as WAN on the MOTG caused it. The Wifi as WAN device clearly was not connected to the 3G or 2G or any network (and obviously connecting other devices directly to it, resulted in no Internet). It not only had no bars of signal strength, it also was showing an error that no network was available. However, the MOTG was showing that it was passing its health checks even though it clearly shouldn’t.
As soon as I disabled the Wifi as WAN as an active WAN on the MOTG, the WAN connectivity to the Balance One was instantly restored. Below are the settings that I am using for it on the MOTG but I don’t know how they could result in a passing health check when there was absolutely no connectivity on the device but I am pretty burnt out now after dealing this and some other stuff today so I am not thinking too clearly at the moment (long day haha)…
Therefore, I am not sure if the Health Check is working on my MOTG or if I need to change the Health Check settings or what but any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
