Activating vpn with easytether


When using easytether with v3 admin and trying to connect to VPN, I’m getting a “Not connected to Internet” error. Any workaround for this?



Could you ssh to the router? Then execute mwan3 status, please show the output here.


Yes, output below:

Interface status:
 interface wan is offline and tracking is active
 interface wwan is unknown and tracking is down

It seems the device not Internet connection. Did you confirm the Internet is available before start VPN?


Yes, I can access the internet with these settings. When using easytether, the router doesn’t recognize a connected interface, but I am still able to access the internet.


Does it help if you reboot the device? Which version and model are you using for?


Rebooting doesn’t help. I’m using the GL-MT300N-V2 with the 1227 firmware.
