I just got a 3G Airvana to replace my old Samsung Airave. Unfortunately for me, I am part of a broadband study through http://samknows.com/ (FCC comissioned) and they provided me with a router that has "special sauce" inside it. According to SamKnows all my traffic is supposed to go through the router they provided. Can I hook the 3G Airvana behind it and make it work or do I have to hook it up in front of the router I'm using now? I can post a diagram if needed.
SMCCLOUD, i'm glad to hear that yours is up an running. I can get the Airvana working when connecting directly to the cable modem. Unfortunately when I use the cable modem-->router-->airvana setup I get blinking mobile amber light. I'm using Trendnet TEW652BRP.
glad to know those instructions worked for a couple people...it isn't working for me. My Airave Airvana arrived on Friday and I configured everything this morning but it still has not connected to Sprint's network.
I really do not want to put this device in front of my router, but I may not have any choice... >:(
In addition to those directions try this:
- while in Airave's admin page, select SETUP tab
- while under SETUP tab click on "Use Static IP Address" and add the desired IP address as well as the default gateway address
IP adddress 192.168.X.X
Default gateway: 192.168.X.X
or if we use Justin's example then:
IP adddress 192.168.1.161
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
This did it for me. The Airave has been running with no issues all week. Hope this helps!
