Hi there- new to Peplink products and I am either having trouble understanding how these work or there is something going on with this unit.
I purchased this unit used and activated a sim card to pair with it. At first, I could not access the web interface.I checked the default gateway and it was set to an address the previous owner must have set up. After a hard reset, I could now log in to the interface via 192.168.50.1 using admin/admin. But what I have found is that as soon as the router receives a data connection, the admin/admin login does not work and says “invalid username or password.”
I’ve read some threads and thought maybe I need to purchase a license to use the device and maybe its locking me out? I set up a peplink account and tried to register the device by serial number- but the site said this serial was already registered to another company.
Did someone sell me a unit that I cant use? Or am I doing something wrong? All I need this for is for a backup internet connection in case our service goes down. I may possible add a 2nd SIM card to it.
If anyone could provide some info that would be great!
