Yes, the WAN port of a home router can be connected to the LAN (yellow) port of the V4.
Do take note the IP range of your home router does not coincide with that of the range of the gateway which the V4 will further connect to. There will still be internet access but no access to the devices on the same range.
For example if your home router range is 192.168.0.X and the V4 has a ZTE MF823 4G stick connected via the USB port, which by default is 18.104.22.168, your devices connected to the home router will have internet access, but will be unable to connect to the ZTE MF823 4G stick for configuration.
The EZhotspot Extender is a unique product that allows a smartphone or tablet to access it easily wirelessly for configuration. You never need a LAN cable with the EZhotspot Extender.
Even if you do need a LAN cable to connect additional devices, it is very likely the length you need is 3 meters and above and this cable is not able to fit into the standard box of the EZhotspot Extender and hence has to be ordered separately from your reseller , from our websop or easily purchased from any IT or accessory retail shop.
The EZ-WUSB150 was briefly offered for a small project requested by our partner for firmware version below 4.12. Since, it is no longer supplied or supported since 2018-01-15 because:
- the newer firmware has better features and that the USB dongle will hinder the development of better firmware releases.
- the release of our V5 which has 2 wireless possibilities on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.
- the performance of the USB dongle is not as expected.
- the failure rate of the USB dongle is high.
We do not know the current firmware version you are using, but for older firmware version when you plugged in the USB dongle, the Ezhotspot will reboot once to load the the USB dongle into operation. Similarly, it will reboot once if you remove it. This is normal.
To enjoy future firmware updates, we suggest you to use the V4 without the USB dongle. You should quickly contact the seller to request the return of the USB dongle if possible or the bundled combination and make a new purchase. Our sellers usually offer a minimum of 14 days cooling period.
