Hello, I have been using the MIFI routers since around 2019 with success. However, I just received a batch of them and their circuit board is completely different. Here is a link to what I have been buying:
As you can see, it has GPIO right above the cellular module, as well as a 2-pin connector to power the board internally. The latest boards I received are completely different, here’s a picture:
The GPIO’s above the cellular module are now missing, and the battery connector is a 6-pin! GL Inet support says this change was made in 2018, however I didn’t start buying these until 2019, and after over 500 units purchased, have never seen this style. It’s a problem for me because I need to be able to power the board internally due to a special use-case I have. It is difficult getting a hold of support, so I’m wondering if anyone else has run into this? I want to remove the battery completely and power the board via the battery connector somehow.
