It looks like the balance router should recognize the Pepwave automatically, but this is definitely not happening for me. The video that Peplink sent to me
didn’t clarify much since it talks about menu options that I don’t have. The manuals also offered little insight.
Exploring on my own, and trying to use information from the forums, this is what i’ve been trying:
On the pepwave mini, in System/Controller I entered the IP of my Balance 20.
I’ve made sure the webadmin admin name and password are identical on my Mini and in the AP/Settings Section on the Balance 20.
on the dashboard of the balance 20 it says there is an inactive Access Point in addition to the 300M that it already controls.
when i go to the AP menu/AP status (there is no WLAN menu under network, although the Peplink video says their should be–is the video inaccurate,
outdated, or not applicable to this router?), I see the 300M but not the Mini.
FWIW, my Balance 20 does have an IPSec VPN established with a Balance One at my house. Could this be preventing the AP control from working?
Frustrated. I’d hoped the Pepwave Mini’s would be a nicer solution for me management wise than using old apple airport base stations, but i’m about ready to return the two minis that I bought because I can’t get them configured.
