I got my 4GEE Home router yesterday and it works well, however I want to use that SIM in a mikrotik external LTE antena. But whenever I put the sim in it never works, I've tried a SIM from BT + Three and they work so I know it's not the device, but the EE SIM which came with my 4GEE will not work (CME ERROR 100) at all.
Are the SIM's locked to the device, if so how do I go about removing that lock please?

@castlemaster The EE sim is not locked to stop it from using in a different device. Can I just ask can you put this EE SIM card in to a mobile phone? If you can does it work.

Hmm you are right, works fine in my mobile, hmm wonder why it wont work with this sim then, I setup LTE bands to 1,3,7,20 and APN is internet (no user/pass) so not sure why it's not working.

SIMs are not locked to devices & are free to be used in any unlocked or locked to EE device. It's devices that may be locked to networks.

@XRaySpeX it’s not locked if it can use a 3 and a BT sim

I tried IPv4 only , made no difference, put the SIM back in the 4GEE router for now which brings me to my next question.
What does the WAN port on the back of the router get used for? I'm trying now to get my router (mikrotik) to route my traffic through the 4GEE router but suspect i'm hitting a double nat issue as it's not giving me any traffic.

It's not a WAN port. It's a LAN port for connecting a device to the router by Ethernet rather than wireless. The WAN is the mobile SIM.
You could try connecting the LAN port of the 4GEE Home Router to the WAN port of your other router. Double NAT or more precisely CGNAT shouldn't come into it. That only affects unsolicited incoming connections.
