My MR200 (latest firmware) does not seem to want to connect to the internet using my EE SIM card, although it works fine with other network's SIM cards.

When I insert the EE SIM I get the following information:
Internet Status: Disconnected
Unknown failure reason. Please make sure your configuration is correct.
SIM Card Status: SIM card prepared
Network Type: LTE
Data: 46.826MB (Total Used)
Signal strength: 75%
IP Address: 0.0.0.0
DNS Server: 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0

First I used the auto detected APN settings for EE which were
Profile name: EE (default: 1)
PDP Type: IPv4
APN: everywhere
Username: eesecure
Password: secure
Authentication Type: CHAP

I then tried a combination of changes, raging from no username/password to using PAP instead of CHAP but still no connection

I currently use the SIM in a HUAWEI E5776 mifi mini router which works fine. The APN settings on this are:
APN: everywhere
Username: eesecure
Password: secure

Could it be the MR200 just doesn't like the EE SIM card or is something being blocked? Anyone else using the MR200 with an EE SIM?

I am having the same issue. Exactly the same issue.

Is anybody at TP-Link looking into this?

Hopefully the people at TP-Link look at these postings?

Unfortunately my need for a decent 4G connection means that I haven't got time for TP-Link to find a fix, so I have ditched the MR200 and bought a Huawei E5186 which works fine with my EE SIM and is a far superior bit of kit.

I have done exactly the same. EE has good coverage where I am, so I returned the MR200 and bought the Huawei B315 - which is working well with the EE simcard

In my case it seems this was an issue with the EE SIM's IP version request. It seems EE have now fixed this issue and their data SIM now works fine again in my Archer MR200.

I would like to signal this thread:
http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?96349-Archer-MR200-non-connecting-with-Alternatyva-SIM-CARD

the problem seems similar, always involving MR200 and CHAP APN authentication.

The user newfoundglory reported a successful connection.
Some TP-Link device has 20 chars username limit.

Please could you tell us how many chars is your username long?

I solved my problem sending back the MR200 to Amazon and buying the MR6400 that worked perfectly.

Hi All,

I seem to be having the same problem.. EE carried out network maintenance a week or so ago, now my MR200 is close to being useless... the only problem is I cant find the receipt to return it so have to stick this blame process out. I have spoken to EE who basically turned round and said if your not using our device we cant help you.

If I can get something firm to go back to EE with then maybe they can be pushed.... but I am getting the impression from reading through everything that this is a possible device issue...

Any guidance of input from tp-link?


Thanks
Mike
