I’ve been using the new Verizon $70 prepaid unlimited tablet/jetpack plan connected to a hotspot, previously the crummy Mofi device and now Peplink MAX BR1 MK2 LTEA.
This Verizon SIM been working great over the last few months, but just last week stopped working. The Peplink hotspot is connecting to the LTE network just fine, but none of my devices (computers, phones) connected to Peplink can access the internet. The Peplink itself can ping internet resources and passes HTTP health checks just fine. But anything connected to the LAN fails to connect to the internet.
If I throw the same SIM in an cellular iPad, the iPad can access the internet just fine. However, if I try to enable tethering on the iPad, the same issue occurs: no tethered devices can connect to the internet.
Anyone else seeing this? It’s as if Verizon is now blocking tethering/hotspot capabilities on this tablet/jetpack plan.
