AR300M not reconnecting

I recently bought a GL-AR300M on firmware 2.27 which I am using as a repeater for a cellular hotspot’s wifi. Unfortunately the hotspot needs to be rebooted every day. I have the checkbox for “auto scan and reconnect” checked but the GL-AR300M never does reconnect automatically. I have to go through the portal at and hit the connect button manually. All well and good if I’m home but not so good if I’m not. Is there something I can do to fix this?

Could you ssh into the router and issue ps | grep gl_health | grep -v grep? Any result output? If not, maybe the reconnect process has exited with exception. You need to reboot the router.

It’s been over 7 years since I used Linux so I don’t remember how to do that. But I’ll see if I can figure it out.

Please refer to online docs about ssh SSH to the router - GL.iNet Docs
