Connect a device via LAN port

Hi,

I have a NR5101 with 5G cellular connection as the internet provider.

Via wifi everything works okayish but when connecting a device through LAN port I do not get any connection...

From my device (Zimaboard) I can see orange light blinking and status to be connected but no internet is provided to the device. I tried both ports on the modem and device with different cables without any better results.

Should I configure something to make this possible?

    Hi Justice,

    What does orange blinking on Zimaboard mean?

    Also, what is the IP address on Zimaboard?

    Regards,

    Bob

    Hi Bob, I have the same problem with my Samung Smart TV : connexion is not possible. Maybe I have to create a manual connexion : in that case what DNS Server and IP Gateway have I to note? I can' find it. Thank you !

    Hi FlrntQr,

    If DHCP server is enabled on NR5101, supposedly your smart TV should receive an IP address from the NR5101 automatically.

    If you're going to set a connection manually, the IP gateway is the same as your NR5101's LAN IP address, for example, 192.168.1.1. For DNS server, you may use the NR5101's LAN IP address, but this requires a corresponding settings on the NR5101; another safe setting is to set the DNS server that your Internet Service Provider uses/allows, for example, Google's DNS server (IP address: 8.8.8.8).

    Regards,

    Bob
