Hi we have just installed an X11 and a QuWireless QuSpot for Teltonika rutX11 on a Yacht (BTW these are amazing devices and quality engineering). So far we are just trying to get the device to use a long range wifi network as the wan and the X11 as the default gateway on the lan. The device is POE powered on port 1.
The use case is to have a 'permanent' internet connection available either by getting the X11 to connect to a long range WiFi connection as the primary when we are in port. Or, to use a LTE connection when out of range of normal WiFi hotspots and automatically failover to the LTE connection once the WiFi drops.
Various onboard devices (Laptops, Phones, Tablets, Amazon FireTV, Cameras <-> Boats WiFi access point <LAN PORT> <POE ADAPTOR> <-> X11 provides DHCP for LAN devices [Remote WiFi network as client/LTE] <-> Internet
It appears that we have to put the wireless mode as Client and connect to the remote WiFi router. We connected both 2.4Ghz [wwan] and 5Ghz [wwan1] both connected fine. When we tried to get out to the internet from a lan client by using the X11 IP as the default gateway we could not get out.
When we configured the Relay option and specified either wwan or wwan1 (not both) as the interface then we could get out to the internet. This did seem to bridge the remote WiFi network to the LAN network. We can connect a virgin device to the onboard WiFi AP and all is well and we can connect to the internet so it must be getting the default gateway info correctly.
We are not sure this is the correct way to go about this and we may have accidentally found a way to make it work. Can anyone provide us with a reasonably simple way to make our use case robust and de-mystify the configuration. One of the things we are scratching our head with is the WAN interface which simply shows as Stopped.
Once we can get the basics configured we will be installing the Zero-Tier package as the onboard Nav Computer and the Camera feeds need to be reachable. It is then possible for the shore staff to both see the camera feeds and also consume the realtime nav data to follow the yacht.
Thanks for your consideration if you have read this far. I am happy to provide further info but maybe the above is enough. We have full control of the X11 and LAN devices.
Any help appreciated.
