Pepwave Max BR1 Pro startup Problem

Upon startup, my Max BR1 Pro allows network traffic like it is a switch for about 30 seconds, then kills all traffic for about 30 seconds while it initializes. Is this the expected behavior? Is there a way to stop it from killing nework during this time?

I don’t have that device, but is there a spanning tree setting on that router? If so, you could try enabling it. It should block traffic while it goes through its algorithm. Just a shot in the dark… I didn’t see people jumping to save the day.
