Longtime fan of the PepWave SOTG, first time posting… not sure I have all the words & references to functions & fields right, but here I go.
We work on the Internet for a living and live in a motorcoach. When we travel around, we need good, fast Internet. Because we move now and then, I have all my rig tech tied to the AP SSID of the Pepwave. When we pull into a place, I figure out how to get 1) a local camp wi-fi, or 2) a ATT / Verizon hotspot (have 1 of each), or 3) an Ethernet cable (one or the other) connected up and then everything usually just works - pretty awesome actually.
In this place (Mahwah, NJ) , we’ve signed up with a local ISP (Optimum) who just came out and ‘installed’ their service. I now have ARRIS cable model with a blazing fast 200MB capability I want to 1) connect into the PepWave SOTG and have the PepWave behave as an Access Point (AP).
I’ve done this before with no hassle, but alas… today - she gives me trouble.
Wiring from the pole to the cable modem looks good, cable modem to 1000GB switch looks good, the connection from the switch to the Pepwave looks good - except for the solid red ‘RDY’ light and the strength bars are flashing.
I can get to the 192.168.20.1 Dashboard (from my cell via wifi) and look at / update settings. They all look right. Reboot (a couple times) and it still is red/flashy. I cannot access the Pepwave via the wired connection yet. Have before, but it’s not letting me now.
The manual is dated, I’m on the Version:1.1.1 build 1357, so I’m past being able to look it up & figure it out by myself.
What else can I share to help diagnose this?
