what is changed from RC3? thanks


Hello @Lai,
We have found a bug in 8.0.1 RC4 in the Peplink Balance 30 Pro for the cellular settings
When attempting to set the “Non-preferred SIM is connected for ## minutes”, to 60 minutes, it keeps reverting back to one (1) minute.

Model Peplink Balance 30 Pro LTEA
Product Code BPL-031-LTEA-P
Hardware Revision 1
Cellular Module 35907406####### (LTE CAT-6 APAC/300Mbps)

Happy to Help,
Marcus :slight_smile:

60 minutes was actually applied to the unit itself, but 1 minute will still be shown in Web UI. Please use 59 minutes at this moment. Otherwise, 1 minute will be applied in next Save action.

Since running this on my BR1 MK2 every couple days I loose WiFi LAN. It just goes away. I power down and re-power and it comes back. Nothing in the event log.

Hello Community,
We have seen some possible issues with Dynamic DNS in the firmware 8.0.1 RC4.
This issue is particularly around the IPs (Public-Facing) at the WAN side of the cellular connection.
It appears that the router is incorrectly notifying the Dynamic DNS server of the previous IP and not the new IP of the cellular WAN connection.

(not actual DNS details)

Model Pepwave MAX Transit LTEA
Product Code MAX-TST-LTEA-P
Hardware Revision 2
Firmware 8.0.1 build 4368

In the router log files it show a successful update to the Dynamic DNS records, though in checking the DNS records at the DNS server, it is the previous IP and not the new IP. Note that the public facing IP of the cellular connection is dynamic, i.e. it may be “” and then 45 minutes later it will change to “” (not actual IPs).
Has anyone else seen this?

@mldowling, may I know there is a public IP or private IP shows on cellular WAN?

Have you see the cellular WAN was disconnected then reconnect in the Event Log?

Hello @TK_Liew,
There is a Public IP on the Cellular WAN (not carrier natted). In the logs, we can see the IP change when the cellular is disconnected and reconnected.
PM me if you’d like the details or to create a support ticket.

Hi, Peplink,

I found the GRE tunnel built in Firmware 8.0.1, but I can not manage it ( and no management page for this feature ) ?


Note: With the help of @TK_Liew, we were able to pin down the cause of the Dynamic DNS issues, it was not related to the Firmware, it appears it was related to a third-party security application.
