No matter what I do, the Balance 20X WILL NOT CONNECT.
I’ve purchased a Peplink Balance 20 X. I tried the Surf Soho mk3 but the throughput is to low. I then switched to the Synology RT2600ac and 2 of the MR2200ac and they work great. Fast fast fast. I was never sure if I really had the network secure. So I stepped up and purchased this 20 X. Even though the throughput is a little slower than the RT2600ac. Whereas the Synology is like a sprinter, fast and fleeting, the 20 X is like a Quarter horse or a Clydesdale. Might be a little slower but it will get you there and the power is tremendous, not to mention SECURE.
Somehow a few weeks ago, I bricked the first 20 X. No matter what the good folks at Peplink and the Five G Store, where I purchased the device did to help, the 20X stayed in a perpetual “connecting” state. Which we now believe to be ALL caused by freaking Comca$t. After roughly two weeks of following their directions, Peplink authorized a RMA and 5G sent me a replacement. Which sits in the box.
I just use the internet at home for everything all of us use the internet for. No, not porn. Lots of music, Streaming movies, security cameras, thermostats and other IoT devices. As all of you know being able to separate all of this into different Vlans helps keep the network safe. Thank you PEPLINK/PEPWAVE! Or so I’ve read by Mr. M. Horowitz at Routersecurity.org. It’s because of him I’ve purchased the Peplink devices I have. For the little I know, everything he says on his site makes sense when it comes to security.
So, the main question.
Can someone, please help me set up this Balance 20 X properly with SECURITY being the main focus?
I understand perfectly why men & women whove busted their arses studying about all of this Networking and WiFi and the like are unwilling to help some noob. In my home town I’ve called every Networking outfit to ask for help and offered money. None of them will help. Most just hang up. Laughing. Why can’t regular folks have security like the enlightened?
Why is UnP and Nat-pmp disabled, as it should be out of the box but Intrusion Security has to be enabled. Why aren’t there guidlines from Peplink printed for at least basic security for their devices? I ask rhetorically only because NO company does this.
What you see here is the limit of my knowledge. If noone will assist. I’d like to sell all of this equipment.
Fustrated beyond belief.
