Nighthawk M2 MR2100 Not working with EE


Nighthawk M2 MR2100 Not working with EE

Strange one this. My M2 was purchased unlocked from new. I have been using with EE for over 12 months with no issues. 


Over the last few weeks, whilst travelling, there have been areas where my M2 does not receive any signal, though my phone shows 3-4 bar signal strength.


To make matters worse, I have a Huawei E5577cs-321 and when I put the sim card from the M2 into the Huawei I get at least 4 bar strength signal.


I have the latest firmware version and after searching the forums I see other EE related  issues but not this one. Are there problems with EE and the Netgear M2?

Re: Nighthawk M2 MR2100 Not working with EE

EE MR2100 has been EOL already and the FW release is quite old. When the EE M2 was released, the band settings were following EE's requirements, which may limit the device's capbility to roam on other network. 

If you can provide which roaming network you were using, I can help to check.

Hi John, my MR 2100 was bought unlocked from Amazon, I have a number of phones on an EE account so I purchased a SIM card for the MR 1200 unit. In exactly the same location the MR 2100 would not connect to the EE network, but it would connect when the SIM card was put in the HUAWEI unit that I have as a spare.
