Nighthawk disconnects when offloading


Nighthawk disconnects when offloading


My Nighthawk M1 works great until I turn on wifi offloading. It connects to the external wifi fine but stops broadcasting and so I can't connect any devices to it. After a resetting a few times it allows connections again but it's finicky and if I change any setting it'll stop broadcasting again.

When I initially turn on offloading it gives me a warning that I may need to reconnect devices manually. Does anyone know what this means? Could this be the cause of the problem?

I'm running on 2.4 GHz only to allow for wifi offloading.

Re: Nighthawk disconnects when offloading

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Mobile Router products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with mobile routers and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this router forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:
