A firmware update for the 7100LG might not go amiss either, you certainly aren't on the latest.

Cheers. As jchamier suspected, it seems this router can't run a L2TP tunnel over LTE. If you want to continue using this router, then it would have to piggy back off the EE router, ie you would let the EE kit handle the LTE side of things and the Netgear will do the L2TP tunnelling.

However...if you are determined to have a 1 box solution then you will need to buy the Asus 4G-AC86U or 4G-AC68U. These have a VPN 'app' built-in and are almost 100% guaranteed to do waht you want. You could even get rid of A&A L2TP service and get a proper, almost bullet proof VPN service (OpenVPN based) from Private Tunnel (these were the guys who created the OpenVPN protocol) or AirVPN. But on the other hand OpenVPN based VPN services take a big hit on speeds (due to heavy encryption) so its a bit of a balancing act.

You would need to download the latest firmware and upgrade manually:

But I very much doubt using the latest firmware would magically enable L2TP over LTE, though of course its always good practice to use the latest firmware.

Which one is best Highlander and would you possibly help me set it up and point me in the right direction if i proceed with this upgrade.

The 2 router configuration is not what i want, and to be honest this provided EE white box router is extremely limited and has very little setting you can change.

Seems AAISP are correct then when i said to them i am finding it difficult to set up, apart from the first replay to the post when i think jchamier or someone said that AAISP are telling me porkies smile

Once again at the moment i thank you for your time Highlander and Jchamier for all your help in this matter.

Because i would really like to get this working i will most likely fork out for this Asus router providing i buy the right one and i hope it uses the same type sim as what's in this Netgear.Micro i think ?,Nano in the EE one.

Shame really as i really do know around Netgear products and there interface and i suspect the Asus will be different.

When i say [I know] I mean i get by ?

The only good thing about the EE router in my opinion is in the fact when we first signed up for the 4G contract and they provided that router, it has 2 aerial sockets for outside mounting of the aerial and i could achieve 4g speeds of 100mbps.

Sadly i don't use this anymore and get around 30 to 40 which is fine ,as most of the other third party routers do not facilitate this option.

Had to pay EE or whoever £100 for the outside Aerial ,the other downside is your only allowed 5mtr max cable and no more.

The 4G-AC86U is far superior to the 4G-AC68U, so if you can, buy the former. But it doesn't seem to be available anywhere just yet, I think its because its only just been announced. Maybe give Asus a call to ask when/if this will be released in UK. Otherwise go for the AC68.

Its fairly easy to set up VPN on Asus routers, I'll do my best to help you 👍

Looks like the Asus mate smile
