Hello,

I want to use my rrc 1258 mk2 with ic7100 front panel, using my smartphone a20 Samsung as router (all working fine with laptop and others).
This donít work, thereís a possibility or not? The rrc with wifi from a router with 4G (using the Sim card of the smartphone) or with adsl fiber or normal works fine. I donít understand why no connection with smartphones (I try also with iPhone, another Samsung without success).
When searching the wifi from smartphone the rrc find it, i make the right config, but then the rrc doesnít connect to the smartphone. Suggestions?

Thank you

Mauri Iz2mgn

Hi

The most common reason for this problem is that the user assumes that the phone use the same LAN settings as the home router. If you set DHCP = Yes in The RRC it will adapt automatically to the Phone LAN settings

Hi

Setting the DHCP in the RRC now works fine! Thank you!

My wife and I both have Galaxy S21+ cellphones. The wifi scan sees her phone, but not mine.
