WiFi as WAN
Posted on 2013-11-15
I am trying to set up what I'm told is a WiFi as WAN. I have a Sierra Wireless Overdrive Pro Mobile Hot spot and I need a couple of Ethernet ports, which the hot spot does not have.
I bought a cradlepoint MBr95 wireless router, Their website does not list my hot spot as a supported product, but the vendor, who has been trying to troubleshoot the situation tells me that any wireless router would do the trick.
We've gone through the wireless as wan set up on the router. To test, once the WiFi antenna on my laptop is turned off and connected to the router using Ethernet cable we still cannot access the internet through hte Ethernet connections on the router,
Any suggestions are welcome to get the ethernet ports working. It is important to note that I do not know what I am doing.
P.S. The router and modem do not have conflicting IP addressed any more, The router was assigned a new address.
