I have myself a MikroTik "LtAP LTE Kit" running RouterOS v6.47.6.
I managed to connct to LTE (by entering the SIM PIN and the respective data to the APN setting) but i can't for the life of me connect to anywhere via LTE.
I also wondered why I cannot select the "lte1" interface in the dhcp-client, it only gives me ether1 and wlan1 as options. If i try to add the interface manually, i get
I do get an IP address and I also get a default route with the below settings, but traceroute stops after the first hop:
> ip dhcp-client add interface=lte1 input does not match any value of interface
I should mention that the SIM is a Vodafone CDA type, so in theory I should be able to connect from the Internet to the router via LTE (which is what I ultimately want - the router should serve as a remote access device for an existing installation)

The IP address of lte1 seems to be correct, at least it's the same one as in the vodafone customer portal:
And i also have a default route, but as shown above, traceroute fails, so this may be the culprit?
[admin@MikroTik] > ip address print detail Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic 0 D address=10.0.0.3/32 network=10.0.0.3 interface=lte1 actual-interface=lte1
So from here I would like to assign a dhcp-client to lte1, but it win't let me and I honestly don't know why ...
