I have a 4G Home Router. Neither of the 2 LAN ports are working when i plug in a LAN cable. I have tried to connect for 2 reasons,
1 is to set up a Sonos speaker on the wifi network (which requires a wired connection in the first place to do the initial setup) and neither of the 2 LAN ports will allow the Sonos to be "seen".
2 I have tried to connect an Apple Time Capsule to use as a networked storage device and again the device will not be "seen" when going to configure it in Airport Utility.
I have made no changes to the LAN settings in the 4G device, it is as factory settings.
Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂
Is your router all setup and working over WiFi?

Yes, the 4G wifi works fine. I have had the router for a while and just not had any need to use the lan ports.

Do you have a laptop or PC you could connect to the LAN to see if it can access the internet?
Have you tried a different cable?

When you connect an Ethernet cable on LAN1/2 to a wired device do the indicator lights on the 4GEE home router light up at all? First confirm if the LAN ports are supplying a signal, then you need to determine if DHCP is working and supplying an IP address.
