WE826T Won't Connect

Post by effinpissed » Sun Mar 28, 2021 2:48 pm

We experienced a high wind storm on 3/26 and lost our connection with AT&T. I tried restarting numerous times since then without success. I turned off WiFi in the router using an Ethernet connection to my PC. I entered the system log and it looks like I may have inadvertently changed a crucial setting.

I had to spend 1/2 hr to type all of this manually on my android since I have no WiFi. It wouldn't let me copy and paste it from a .odt file copy of the system log I transferred from my pc to my phone. I have 3 more pages of output I could post manually but I have a life.

I discovered the wind storm had nothing to do with me losing my connectivity. My wife's excessive data usage due to streaming videos all day got our unlimited tablet plan flagged by AT&T.
