Flex 6600 and T-Mobile 5G home internet

ColoradoJay Member
edited April 2022 in Networking
Hi, I live out in the country and got T-Mobile 5G home internet as my current provider's service is a bit hit or miss. I have been running the 6600 plugged into the router via LAN and running the PC on WiFi with no problems. When I plugged the 6600 into a LAN slot on the 5G and had the PC on the 5G WiFi I get a no connection message and SSDR won't come up. Any ideas out there?

    Hi Jay, it sounds like you need to plug both the radio and pc into the router. If you don't have enough slots, a 4 or 8 port network switch could be used. I use a Netgear GS 108 8 port switch for all the junk at my house.

    i suspect it is IPV6 or some sort of firewall or L3 routing between the WIFI and PLUGGED Network.

    Check your IP´s of both Flex and PC . Both must be in the same IPV4 subnet

    Thanks guys. I did indeed end up using LAN from both the PC and the 6600 to the T-Mobile 5G box. Also seemed to do wonders for reducing max latency. I will need a port switch as the 5G box only has two LAN ports.
