Model: Archer MR200  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 1.19.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 210201 Rel.65731n

In Hungary 3G has been shut down since 2022 June 30. Since then, MR200 does not connect to 4G (using default "4G Preferred" setting), it gets WAN IP address and DNS IP addresses from operator, even log states "lte connection up", but it seems there is some mishap as router itself thinks it's "disconnected" and there is no internet available.

 

The only issue-like things I see in System Log is NCSI related timeouts.

 

The device was working fine with same SIM card (since 2 years actually) before June 30.

Well, false alarm, you were right, it was the SIM card....

 

Short story, it is a pre-paid card, and I forgot to perform yearly checkup (in EU you need to verify yearly that you are the user of the prepaid SIM), and provider cut it off from network, but in a strange way (as phone reported same thing as MR200): kinda "ok" is on network, but no data, no SMS and no calls were possible, like a dead card.

 

 

Once verified my ownership on SIM card, and provider turned it back on, all right here.

Tried Tether.app from my Android phone, interestingly it says "All OK" and claims router is online! But, my android phone, on which Tether.app runs claims this WiFi has no internet access as well...

Hi, please try to insert the same SIM card into your smartphone, then check if it receives 4G signal and get internet access via mobile data. If so, please enable hotspot on the smartphone and connect other client devices such as laptop to the phone hotspot to see if internet still works fine.

 

If smartphone and phone hotspot always works fine on 4G, please go to Advanced->Network->LAN Settings, try to set Primary DNS as 8.8.8.8 and Secondary DNS as 8.8.4.4, then save it and test internet access again.
