I recently picked up a Peplink Max BR1 Mini. Updated firmware to the latest, so should be good there.
My symptom is that when I try to connect to the Wi-Fi of the unit, many times I get an authentication error and unable to connect. This could be from my Samsung phone or my Mac laptop. Sometimes the Wi-Fi won’t even show up as something to connect to.
I can literally be sitting 2 ft from the unit and have connection issues. Other times it works fine. If I connect using an ethernet cable it works like a champ.
The stereo in my RV (school bus conversion), don’t see the access point to connect to… But the stereo we’ll see the access point coming from Starbucks across the street. Which makes me think that the antenna itself is probably having a problem…
Has anyone dealt with this before?
Anything that I should be aware of, before I buy a replacement Wi-Fi antenna on Amazon?
Is there anything software related that this could be from?
I’m assuming that I could buy any old 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi antenna on Amazon. Perhaps ones with a higher DB of gain?
