CBA850 frequently reboots

Post by willow » Sun Dec 22, 2019 4:00 pm

I have a CBA850 with LP6 modem and I'm using a Visible SIM. I have updated the router firmware to 7.0.50 and the modem firmware for Verizon to 02.30.01.01_VERIZON,002.052_000. For the most part, it works, but frequently, it will reboot and I can't figure out why. The log only shows events starting with the current reboot. I do have a fairly weak signal:

Signal Strength 82
RSSI -84 dBm
SINR 9.2 dB
RSRP -112 dB
RSRQ -10 dB'

Could that be the cause? If not, does anyone have any suggestions for determining the problem?

Many thanks!

Signals are not the best but I have seen worse.

What reboots, the modem or the router?

Do you have the Default Connection State as Always On?

I have seen instances where the modem would no idle and the software would reboot the modem to reactivate the connection.

Thanks for the reply!

It's the router that's rebooting... it drops its connection to the web UI, signal strength lights turn off, main light turns amber, etc. I was actively using/testing the internet connection, so I'd assume that that the modem would not have had a chance to go idle.

I figured out how to enable USB logging, but it didn't reveal anything (that I could see), Here's a sample:

When you upgraded the router software to 7.0.50, did you check the box to reset the router to default factory settings?

Just to eliminate the software being the issue, I would download a fresh software image and reflash the CBA850 again, and be sure to set the router to factory defaults.

What power adapter are you using?

I've reset to factory settings and re-flashed the firmware a couple of times already. The power supply is something I had not considered (its a cheap 12v 2A - Model LX-1202). A bad one would perfectly explain what I've been experiencing! I've got another one. I'll try it out for a couple of days and see what happens. Many thanks! Merry Christmas!

A faulty power supply as well as one with the improper 2.5mm (as opposed to 2.1mm) barrel tip connector can and will cause issues.
