How can I change the APN on Nighthawk M1

Answered

I am going overseas on a holiday and want to take this device with me and use a local SIM. I have done this in the past with previous Telstra products. In this case the Nighthawk, which is a Netgear MR1100 will allow me to create a new APN, but won't let me deselect the Telstra one. As I am on a contract, I gather the device is already unlocked.

 

Any ideas?

I tried all the documented ways and didn't get anywhere. Apparently I am not alone.

 

Finally created an APN with a new name, but Telstra APN details, rebooted, made default. All ok. Then edited the new APN put in other carrier's APN, reboot, all good. 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

there should be a + symbol on the APN screen which will allow you to add another one
