After you have clicked Save and Set APN as Default, please go back to the LTE Connect Status and turn that ON.

At the top of the screen click on "Reset Connection Settings" if it doesn't connect right away.



Remove the APN.  let it auto-detect.



Also, here are the steps from the LTE activation guide:

ACCESSING CELLULAR SETTINGS 

1. Ensure SIM card is inserted in the appropriate slot of modem or router 

2. Power up the WiFiRanger system with embedded LTE modem(s) 

3. Connect over ethernet or wirelessly to the WiFiRanger’s network SSID

(Instructions for this can be found here: https://wifiranger.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/wifiranger_quickstart_sky_lostdocs_rev8.pdf )

4. Access Control Panel of the WiFiRanger and select the “Setup” tab

Check and see if there are any updates and perform the update.


Try a carrier-specific firmware

  1. Log into the MOFI Router by connecting a phone, tablet/iPad, computer, etc. to the MOFI network (regardless if the router is giving off an internet connection or not), opening a non-Chrome browser (Safari, Internet Explorer, or FireFox), and typing 192.168.10.1 into the browser's address bar, which will bring you to the MOFI Router's login screen

Included here are basic troubleshooting steps for the Mofi4500.  The detailed instructions for each individual suggestion can be found in separate articles listed here in the Knowledgebase.

1. Check Signal Strength 

2. Confirm APN Settings

3.  Try a carrier-specific firmware

4.  Update Firmware

5. Update phone number and SIM ID

6. Reset Sierra Module

7. Factory Reset



It is wise to be in the latest firmware. You could either do a remote update if you have a working internet in the MOFI router by going to System and then remote update and perform remote update. If you want to do a manual upgrade (if you do not have a working internet in the MOFI router), follow this video tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7g8SGYDNVbw


At this point make sure the SIM is inside the router. Now log into the router and go to Network and then MOFI internal modem and then all the way to the bottom of the page click on Press here to reset the Sierra module. Once the router is up, perform a factory default. The internet should work automatically. If not, make sure the APN you are seeing is correct You can check APN from MOFI Internal Modem, all the way to the bottom of the page you should see your current Access Point. If we are good on that side, go ahead and check your signal strength. Go to Overview from the top left-hand corner on the list. On the middle of the page, click on Check Signal Strength.

If the signal isn’t good enough, you can try to perform band lock as well. To perform band lock, follow the instructions located in the Knowledgebase for "Band Lock"

MoFi - Band Lock

Carriers broadcast their networks on several Bands, or ranges of frequencies. They offer different bands in different areas depending on signal, tower, and population density. The different bands offer differing speeds and coverage ranges. The bands with the highest frequencies offer the highest speeds, but smaller coverage areas. Below is a table of the most common bands/frequencies used in the US.

Carrier

Scanning for available Bands
Use the band scanner to identify which bands are even visible to the MoFi.

  1. Log into the MoFi's web browser at 192.168.10.1. The default username is root and the password is 'admin'.
  2. In the left-hand menu, Select Network --> Internal Modem --> Band Scanner
