No ethernet on Nighthawk M1

Answered

G'Day,

I set up a Highthawk M1 a few weeks ago with no issues using its 4G internet WAN connection to then get an internet connection on a PC via the ethernet port.

 

It was turned off and put away until now.

 

I try to get an ethernet connection and it is as if the ehternet port is dead. WiFi works perfectly but I must have ethernet access.

 

All I'm trying to do is get the Nighthawk to connet via ethernet to a 8 port switch and then onto 5 PCs Should be easy but.....

 

Can anyone shed soe light on this?

It SHOULD work if you plug in every Ethernet cable and every device (already working) working BEFORE plugging into your your Netgear and then switch it on last. It only enables and searches for Ethernet connections when either started or rebooted. 

 

Thank Netgear for their poor work in R&D for this.
