Pogoplug v3 Networking
August 15, 2018 11:50AM
Here is my situation, I am now setup at home to run my network tethered to my cell phone as the cable provider I was using was unreliable at best, that being said I have found no way to connect my network to my router which was my plan and if i run my cell as a hotspot my phone provider charges the data differently than if ran as a usb tether which is unlimited, so my new plan, if i can actually do this is to run the usb tether to my pogoplug directly then use the ethernet port on the Pogoplug to run data to my router. I know this is backward but I spent days trying to do this with the router which has a usb but the network will not port from it. I am going to try this on a fresh installed Pogoplug running Debian as I bought 2 just in case I would ever have an issue and I guess now is that time. My first attempt is to actually just plug it in and maybe it will just work but as I have very little luck with that kinda thing I am sure there is a lot I will have to do to make it work even if it will. Any input about this would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

echowarrior,

If I understood you correctly. The USB 3G dongle is plugged in the Pogo USB port?

What you want to do is running run your Pogo NIC in bridge mode.

Well, Before I end up slowing my pogoplug down to a screeching halt and mess it up completely i am going to opt to just tether a router, my old routers were not working with networking in this manner so I got a wrt32x and am going to set it up instead, so really i have no working setup for this to share. Didn't want to waste everyone's time trying to do this when a router is simply a better option:) Thanks!!
