What make/model router do you have your extender connected to?  Have you enabled IPSEC in your router?

Here is a capture of an old solution:

We are a school trying to set up a Samsung Verizon Network Extender 2 in an area where there is no cell service off of our network. We have worked with our network team to do the necessary port forwards and have so far been unsuccessful getting the device to get past Step 8a: Connecting to Verizon Network.
On the admin page, I have noticed that the IPSec will go from Reachable to N/A to Unreachable to Reachable about every minute or so. We are curious to know whether this is by design of the product or if this is a fault?

Called the Verizon Helpline. After hours of working with them, they sent me a replacement.
The LTE Network Extender they sent wouldn’t connect either. Eventually I just did a factory reset on my Netgear R8000 and the extender connected. No idea what really changed in the router settings?!
