3G Cisco Microcell DPH-154
I have been using a Cisco DPH-154 Microcell for about 4 years with no problem. It was CAT5 connected directly to my Xfinity Cable/Modem (running DOCSIS 3.0) ethernet port. I installed a new 3rd party gateway (Netgear CM1150V Cable/Modem) and connected the Microcell the same as before with an ethernet connection. Now the Microcell will not register the internet signal from the new gateway. I now have connected the Microcell directly into one of the internet ports on my Eero WiFi hub and the Microcell connects immediately and starts working. However, I would prefer to run the Microcell directly from the new Netgear gateway.
My question is: would the reason for no internet signal from the new Netgear gateway be that it runs the latest DOCSIS 3.1 instead of 3.0 which the Xfinity gateway was running? Is it possible I need to change some setting on the new gateway or the Microcell?
Any information would be appreciated.
