Need to tether the 6620L Jetpack to TP-Link MR3040

I have a couple of the 6620L jetpacks and I love them.  I can tether the Jetpack to a Pepwave Surf on the Go router.  But I really need to tether this to a TP-Link MR3040.  The MR3040 supports 3g/4g connections to modems.  But I can not get the Jetpack tethered and I have tried many things.  Like I said, it tethers to my Pepwave just fine but it is not battery powered like the MR3040.  Others have tethered the 6620L to a Ranger Wifi router so it can certainy be done.  Is there a s specific APN, Dial number, and username/password that must be used when tethering?

I would greatly appreciate any help that can be provided.  The 6620L Jetpack shows that a device is tethered, but when I am in the control panel of the MR3040 it just shows "connecting" and never actually establishes an internet connection while tethered.  I am thinking that the issue can be resolved by setting the correct APN, Dial number, username and password.  I guess it is possible that the other routers are connecting by use of Firmware instead of actual user data that is being input.

Thanks!

It can be quite challenging to use a tethering option on a router with the mentioned issues, Tdurhamjr. Let me help as much as possible. I would love to get you connected. However, the manufacture of the modem you are using would need to contacted to advise of the issue. They could see if there’s a compatibly issue or a driver/firmware update that is needed to resolve the issue. I regret any inconvenience this may have caused you.
