Buzzard 1 roaming


In Tenerife and I can't get my buzzard 1 to connect.

Roaming is switched on.

My ee account page states that roaming is being switched on and will take 24 hours.

It's now been 24 hours,the router page ( roaming is switched on.

Status page is where I try to connect but it just says disconnected.

I have un plugged etc several times.

The dongle just flashes blue.

The status page says orange 4g.

Not sure how,but it looks like I have had an update to the software running the buzzard 1.

Logged in this morning and the very basic 192 home page  changed to an ee mobile broadband home page.

Much more detail on this page , it was showing roaming off.

The previous software was stating on.

Anyway all ok now, worth checking before you leave to get the update?

Just checking before travelling abroad again and the homepage shows the basic settings and not  the mobile ee homepage settings.


I have now found that you need to enable the desktop site checkbox on your chrome android browser,this opens the ee homepage with all settings available 🙂


Usefull information which may help anyone travelling abroad and taking the buzzard 1.
