Good morning guys,
I have a problem with a Mikrotik wAP LR8 Kit device.
The problem presents itself to me in LTE connectivity. In fact, while inserting the SIM, no LTE interface is activated.
I tried in every way, I also updated the firmware to 6.47 but nothing has changed.
Do you have any ideas about it?

At today, I’ve update the firmware and I can’t see Lora option in winbox (see the pics).

I don’t know how can do!

Hi, wAP LR8 kit is only for IoT, not LTE or any mobile connectivity.

Make sure that you have installed LoRa package on System -> Packages to get LoRa functions.

To get LTE, you need to install a LTE miniPCIe card inside your wAP, but you will can't do it because these port is busy for LoRa card.

So if you need both technologies on same device wAP is not for you and you need a LtAP (not mini).

At this time you have 3 options:

1) Buy LtAP with some LTE card kit (LTE, LTE6 or 4G) and then install LoRa card.
2) Buy LtAP without LTE card and buy it separely (LTE, LTE6, LTE-US or 4G) and install both cards.
3) Buy the new LtAP LR8 LTE kit if you need R11e-LTE and R11e-LR8 cards.

But for LtAP, apparently you need attach Antenna kit for LoRa. I see that it not have internal LoRa antenna, so you need an external one.
