I just purchased a Balance 30 LTE a couple of days ago. Since the Balance 30 LTE is not capable of WiFi, I am trying to use a Surf SOHO with it. How should I properly configure the two pieces of equipment to work together?
The Balance will provide the internet via Cellular (this is working), and the SOHO needs to provide the WiFi connection.
I’ve tried disabling DHCP on the SOHO. I then connected an ethernet cable to a LAN port on the SOHO, which then connects to a LAN port on the Balance. This doesn’t appear to work properly, as devices connected via LAN on the SOHO cannot access the internet. I did not get a chance to test internet on WiFi devices connected to the SOHO.
Basically, I want the Balance to handle all of the DHCP on the same subnet for both the Balance and the SOHO. I also don’t want to run into a double NAT scenario. Basically, I want to make the SOHO act like a dump switch, with WiFi, if possible.
Balance LAN IP: 10.0.0.1
SOHO LAN IP: 10.0.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
What is the best way to configure this to work? I tried messing with the AP Management stuff on the Balance, but I don’t think it does anything to the SOHO.
