Re: WiFi from an SXT [SOLVED]

Yes reading back it's unclear, I'm not an IT professional so perhaps not using the correct terminology. Is there a way I could get it working perhaps by bouncing to another unconnected point in a garden shed in the middle?

Re: WiFi from an SXT [SOLVED]

I spoke to supplier today and they say that SXT's mentioned are only for point to point and no good to simply further distribute a network connection to an area such as a garden. They say there are no truly reliable ways of doing this as the max distance they would recommend id 60 metres and for tha...

Re: WiFi from an SXT [SOLVED]

On my sxt LTE I have two ports one is Poe in. Are you saying I can use a patch cable out of the other port to the SXT wifi version (which I will purchase) that presumably has Poe in, patch to that and effectively power two units from one Poe injector?

Re: WiFi from an SXT [SOLVED]

Thank you that's very helpful. So the LTE version will power the WiFi SXT through the other port on the LTE version? No need to increase the ampage of the existing PSU? Any idea if it'll cover 200mtrs?
Thanks.

WiFi from an SXT [SOLVED]

I have a SXT LTE mounted on my roof which enables me to get a reasonable internet connection at my remote location. I have a dead WiFi spot at the end of my garden 150meters or so with line of sight view to the SXT. The question is is there a product that I can piggy back off the extra port in the S...

SXT R Signal strength dropped

I purchased a SXT R in UK about one month ago which was running an EE sim, with the unit mounted on a pole on my roof. It had 4 bars, I was achieving 60mb and was running perfectly then about a week ago and for no apparent reason it dropped to two bars, all cells still available, checked with my mob...

Re: SXT LTE +CME Error: 100 using EE

AS an update to anyone reading this I resolved the problem. It seems EE is alone in requiring an APN setup - I used the following (think its just username and password needed which I put in as CHAPS):
Name: EE internet
APN: everywhere
Username: eesecure
Password: secure

Re: SXT LTE +CME Error: 100 using EE

Any help greatly appreciated. I have now tested in two locations and it is obviously a sim specific problem. I've checked with EE who advise there's no locks on SIM or any other reason it shouldn't work.

SXT LTE +CME Error: 100 using EE

I'm in the UK and trying to set up SXT LTE using an EE sim. I have tried an O2 sim and it kicks straight in no problem despite the O2 signal not being so strong. When I insert either of two EE sims I get an error +CME Error: 100. Everthing is at default - I have not added any APN, as was advised it ...

4G LTE Confusion

I live in a relatively rural location in the UK. Although I have to rely on a relatively flaky Radio Broadband connection in my home I do get a great data signal outdoors on my phone, (I always assumed it to be 4G). I now therefore want to use this signal to improve my broadband connection but am co...

Re: Access my External published Ip Internally

Really appreciate your help. I suspect the "network engineer"!! Who set this up has made a right pigs ear of it.. If I go to the externally published address without any port - it goes straight to my Router login page, which I doubt is a good idea!!! Ive attached what it currently looks like (I just...

Re: Access my External published Ip Internally

No its not port forwarding think it may be something called Hairpin or perhaps NAT Loopback?

I am a real beginner and would appreciate a really simple explanation using the Webfig how I can access my CCTV (or anything else for that matter) which sits on port 88 by using my externally published IP. e.g So internally it sits on say 198.168.0.50:88 Externally it sits on 247.250.211.96:88 If I ...

Re: Seeing My CCTV from inside the network

Ok, The example you give "https://192.254.6.50:8080 it open my monitoring map" is an internal address.
In my case lets say the external address is 123.23.123.23 and the cctv actually lives on 192.168.0.5 at port 81
Where would I put these numbers.
Thanks again...

Re: Seeing My CCTV from inside the network

THanks very much for your help but your not understanding my problem at all. Its not a port forwarding problem, I know how to do that. Its a Nat loopback issue. Heres the Wiki definition of Nat Loopback: "NAT loopback, also known as NAT hairpinning or NAT reflection, is a feature in many consumer ro...

Re: Seeing My CCTV from inside the network

Apologies, perhaps i'm not clear. Forget the CCTV thing as that's largely irrelevant.
Simply put MY public Ip is not visible internally.
Google "NAT LOOPBACK" thats what I need to achieve I believe.

Re: Seeing My CCTV from inside the network

Yes I know that. And that is set up fine.
The pain is I need to use the internal IP address to view the cameras when I am at home and the External (Published) IP address when viewing externally.
I understand that Nat loopback enables the external IP address to be viewed internally??
