3/8/17 UPDATE: Stability issues were found in version 1.0.1 which causes the CPE to lock-up after a 15-day runtime. The link has been replaced with version 1.0.3 which is a stop-gap version until the stability bug is fully resolved. Version 1.0.3 adds an automatic reboot feature which reboots the CPE every 7 days.

BaiTip of the Day - January 19th, 2017 - Upgrading UE Firmware

This one is not for the 2.5GHz ODUs, right?


This version is for 2.5GHz ODUs as well. :slight_smile:


Having an issue after updating firmware, it does not complete after waiting for 15 mins then when I click out of it , I can’t log into the cpe via Any thoughts? CPE still has connectivity to internet tho.


CPE IP address will change to after upgrade.


Do the CPE units not get/give a LAN IP while not associated to it’s LTE AP? I’m looking to upgrade firmware in-shop before deploying customer equipment.



By default, the CPE has DHCP server enabled and will hand out an IP address over the LAN interface. Please note that the CPE IP address changes to after the upgrade.

I have also updated the post to link to version 1.0.3 as version 1.0.1 has a critical stability issue.
