I have a Asus RT-Acrh13 router that I am trying to tether to a Verizon Hotspot. The Hotspot has USB 3.0 so there no USB version conflicts should be causing this.
What happens is this:
1: I power on the Asus and let it get to ready.
2: I plug in a ethernet cord to the 4th port on the system and connect it to my laptop.
3: I then connect the Hotspot to the Asus. the Hotspot detects that a device has connected
4: I start the Quick setup (for some reason I can't get to the setting otherwise ) and set the device as USB Modem and finish the quick setup.
5: I then go to the network map and see that the Hotspot is there but I have no internet connection.
Unplugging and reconnecting the Hotspot shows that it is dis/connected on the hotspot and on the router but nothing happens. I can set the Hotspot to USB and Wifi but that still does not let the USB connection work. Thinking that it could be the Hotspot that is the problem I tried my cell and it was the same result except that it says that the cable is unplugged ( which it is but that is not the point ) I did some research on it and as luck has it I have a phone that is just incompatible with this router: a Samsung S7. I borrowed a 10S from a co-worker and hers "worked" as in it gets a IP but I still can't get online from our systems.. I updated firmware and tried 4 different cables. the results are t he same. Any tips on this?
