Data only sim card - getting no service
Looking for some help with sim card not connecting to data service.
Model: ARCHER MR200 v5.2
Firmware: 1.0.0 0.9.1 v1.0 Build 210226 Rel 59749n
I have a Vodafone (Netherlands) data only SIM card with 097...... telephone number.
When setting up, SIM card will request unlock code and seems to unlock fine.
However, no network service is detected - have tried a lot of combinations of APN, manually selecting network and band, etc, but no joy.
MR200 seems to see the networks with data only SIM (e.g. I see Vodafone, KPN, Tele-2, etc when selecting manually)
Have manually set APN 'live.vodafone.com' with and without passwords
Data only SIM card works fine in my mobile phone (iOS14) with no changes to APN settings.
My (Vodafone (NL) 06...... telephone number) SIM card from my phone works fine in the MR200 and automatically starts without any set-up.
Router is in same physical location
I have also tried factory reset & rebooting....still no joy.
I have tried using the saved Vodafone(default:1) profile from the working phone SIM card, but this does not work for the data only SIM either.
Below the last few lines from my log (here you see I manually selected band 3, does not work in Auto mode either)
Any advice/help/support greatly appreciated.
