Do you mean Novatel 6620L can’t work well with B20 after the upgrade? If so please help to open ticket for us to check further.

The Novatel 6620L will not connect to the USB port on the Balance after the firmware was upgraded to 2.5. Peplink has it listed as a supported LTE modem.



It is supported but, we cannot unfortunately control when they decide to upgrade firmware on there devices which is the probable cause.
Engineering team will take a look into this so that we can support the modem on it’s new firmware. Will provide further updates via your ticket.

I understand… I was wondering if you are able to reproduce the issue in your lab?




We do not have the MiFi modem on hand to test with, I have sent instructions to you via the ticket.

The downgrade of the firmware did not fix the issue.
