Loaded 2.1.30 into my 6700 yesterday. All works except WAN access with my IOS devices. I am using 1.3 with my iPhone 8 and iPad Pro. I have been using WAN successfully  with v2.0 since release When connecting I see SmartLink connected (UpnP). When selected it goes back to the "start" page asking me to Tap to connect. This is a Windows 10 machine.

LAN connects work great. I also tried manually forwarding the ports with no joy.

Thoughts?

Solved!

I found I had set my router MTU size to "1400" chasing another problem a few years ago. I set it to "1500" the default size and my WAN connections worked.

It's interesting that the previous v2.0 worked fine with the MTU set at 1400.

Thanks to Dudley who worked side by side with me on this issue!

I'm sure Gerald will give him a big bonus! :)
