Official Airave 4 LTE / Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

Recommended Posts

I think SeanK was looking to see what the blavk ethernet cord plugged into the netgear not the bottom. If your switch does not have enough ports you may need a bigger one.

lilotimz i think is guessing the black wire goes to the airave is plugged into the netgear. But the netgear you have to pay for a new ip on each port. So if you pay one ip then it will go to the white wire until it is off then go to the black wire.(guessing white ethernet wire eero and black ethernet wire airave plugged into netgear)

My setup:

I placed the modem -> Airave

modem -> eero -> switch -> which has multiple computers/Xbox/Hue hub connected

I had to remove the Airave from the eero network because it wouldn't work, but does work with the modem. I didn't bridge my modem since eero doesn't suppose PPPoE yet.

L-net and LTE never went green. So I can try blocking the Airave from the Eero network?

Did you try plugging the Airave to the ethernet ports on the modem and see, while still having the eero hand the other network? You will want to do a factory reset to the Airave just in case so it can activate.

I tried plugging both the Eero and Airave into the modem but they fight over the ip address and only one ever works.

No no no! 

Ok, look at my setup. https://imgur.com/yxvJBZr This is how I got this figured out.

I want you to do this.

Modem has 4 ethernet ports, plug the airave into the first port with the black cable, now plug the eero into the second port with the white cable, now the eero has an extra port, plug the ethernet cable to the switch yellow cable, then the blue and yellow cable for the tv/tivo can be connect to the switch.

That won't work unless he has multiple static IP addresses.

The A4 itself will need 2 IP addresses. One for the CDMA network and one for the LTE network. It needs to be placed behind a router in a typical setup and a CM1200 is not one as it's strictly a D3.1 modem with multiple GBe ports. 

The Eero may need to be modified to do port forwarding and in the worst case scenario may need to place the A4 into a DMZ net.

Odd because mine does and I don't have multiple static IPs. 🤔

Do you have a CM1200 modem or a modem + router + access point combination unit (gateway)?

Modem/router combo, but I disabled all the router part and have the eero do all the work.

@SeanK_ I did a similar combination before (can't remember which went into the modem first). However, I'll try it again with the A4 plugged in first. Last time, It seemed like the Eero and A4 fought over the internet access because when the internet went down, the A4 started to gain lights (again, everything but Lnet and LTE). @lilotimzAny other suggestions? You mentioned port forwarding or DMZ net?

Port forwarding:

Open UDP ports 53, 67, 500 and 4500 bi-directionally

How do you port forward on the Eero

You shouldn't need to port forward. And in fact, you can't with the 4. It's assigned two IP addresses, one for LTE and one for CDMA. Both use all of those ports, and you can only forward to one IP.    

 

 

I hate that Sprint gave that forwarding advice. It may break other things (53 is DNS and 68 is DHCP). What they meant to say was make sure that those 4 ports aren't blocked outbound on your firewall. Which unless you're on an enterprise, corporate, or public network, they won't be. You would have had to explicitly block them. Outbound on those ports is always allowed by default.

Well I tried @SeanK_ setup and it didn't work. Only WAN stayed green. The closest I've gotten was plugging the A4 before the eero into the switch all lights except for lnet and lte went green. Any suggestions? Should I delete those port forward rules?

We'd need to see how the Eero software is configured. It just seems like something isn't right with your setup, and I'm not sure what it is. Can you post the IP addresses of a few devices connected to the switch? Just to make sure that everything is getting a local IP.

I would delete the forwards. What IP are you forwarding them to? Remember the Airave 4 has two IPs, so either way you'd only be able to forward to either CDMA or LTE, not both. They each use an independent ipsec tunnel using ports 500 and 4500. So at best the forwards would only work for one.

Screenshots of the port forward setup  can be seen in the link below.

How can I easily get the IPs of the devices connected to the switch?

Thank you!

[mention=21091]ingenium[/mention] or anyone else, i really dont want to give up, i get no reception in my house....any suggestions?

Factory reset your Eero and redo everything from the ground up is what I'll say.

 

Something about the eeros current configuration is blocking the A4 and just doing these Config edits are not helping much.

 

So factory reset it to the basics and make sure the A4 works with that. Then slowly add custom settings and rules while ensuring the A4 is operational.

It's hard to make further suggestions without being able to play with your router directly and see exactly what settings are enabled and disabled, or getting a packet capture to see what's happening. Lilotimz's suggestion is probably your best bet for now.

      I'm stuck having to use an Airave in my apartment because ever since my landlord moved in downstairs and did major renovations, we've not been able to get much if any Sprint signal up here. I hate it because it's 3G only. Is there any chance Sprint will get it together and offer an LTE Airave? I'm guessing not, but it would be cool if they did.

      Hey all cant find anything searching the Forums. So I am wondering if someone can help me out here.
       
      I currently have a Belkin N750 DB Wifi Dual Band N+ Gigabit Router and an Airave unit. Both units are right next to each other.
       
      My home is about 1500sf ft.
       
      Using both bands on the router; 2.5ghz and 5ghz.
       
      Since PCS is at 1900 I am correct to assume this is close to 2.5gbs aka 2500?
       
      During they day my wireless signal drops to just about nothing that is usable by my TIVO, Note2, Sony 3100 BluRay Player or Wii etc etc etc.
       
      How likelly is it that the 2 units are severely interfering with each other?
       
      What distance should I place one from the other?
       
      Thanks for the feedback.

      Hello all, I have a question about my sprint airave. The closest tower to my house is approximately 4 miles away if I'm correct. So what I'm wondering is when this tower is eventually upgraded to 4G, will my phone be able to connect to it? Or will my airave being a stronger signal override the 4G signal?
      Side question: are 4G signals stronger or weaker than 3G signals necessarily? Thanks for any insight you guys can supply

      So as we all know Sprint offers the Airave devices to help in-home coverage issues. It requires a high-speed Internet connection and creates a miniature cell site inside your home (femtocell).
       
      Sprint has offered these for free or deeply discounted for quite a while to customers with little to no coverage in their home. The requirements for determining eligibility have changed according to what I've heard. There hasn't been an official communication to retail employees as we don't deal with Airaves directly, so do take it with a grain of salt, and remember it can change again at any time.
       
      This information comes from a conversation with a member on the Airave team that determines customer eligibility to assist our store in providing accurate information to our customers that we refer to their team for coverage issues.
       


      To be eligible for a FREE Airave, the account must have 4+ active lines.
       
      Otherwise, the account is eligible for purchasing the Airave at full retail price ($280), or with a 2-year contract commitment for a discounted price ($130).
       

      My assumption is that since Network Vision is ramping up to full speed and should be completed within the next year or so, the increase in coverage availability from the 800MHz deployment and enhanced capability of the new equipment in general is anticipated to remove the need for Airave devices for most customers.

      Hello, just letting you guys know that I did my reset for my airave today and it is using a different set of channels for zip 15235 in Pittsburgh, PA.  Before, it used 75 and 225, and after the reset it now uses 100 and 150.  This may be a response to the users who have had issues with the NV upgrade locally affecting the airave.  Reset yours today and find out!
