Teathered connection via iPhone (6+) was working a couple months ago then stopped. When I plug the lightning-to-usb cable, a “eth2” device is identified, and the “connect” button is active. Press “connect” and it does nothing, then times out with a …“connection failed” message. I upgraded to the latest firmware 3.203-0701, reset to factory defaults, and re-configured the router. Rebooted the iPhone. Tried 2 different cables. Same issue.
There are some steps to troubleshoot this problem.
First, you always need to change another lightning cable.
Second, the correct steps to set up:
- Connect eth2 and wait, until connect or failed
- Turn iphone hotspot off, wait several seconds and turn it on again, and wait to see if router connect
repeat the above
thanks, that helped!
