Using the GX LTE 4G as failover.

Hi,

Just bought a GX LTE 4G modem and have connected it to my CCGX. The CCGX is already connected to my LAN which has a router connected to the Internet. The router however needs 230V which it gets from my Inverter. The plan is to use the LTE modem to power the inverter on and off to save power in the winter.

The LTE modem is working fine, but I have to reboot the CCGX to make it switch between the LAN router and the modem. So if the CCGX uses the router and I shut down the inverter I loose connection because the CCGX needs a reboot to switch to the modem.

The manual states that there is a failover between the modem and WiFi, but not between modem and LAN..

Any bright ideas out there? :)

Hi thank you for your answer and it might do the trick. Some further reading of the manual reveald another possibility. The CCGX can be set to automatically reboot if it looses Internet connection after a set periode of time. Will try this....
