The LTE modem ODU works with an encryption key for secure communication between the outdoor ODU and indoor IDU units. If the outdoor unit is constantly restarting for some reason after an update, you need to update the encryption key. There are two ways to do this:
1. Make the router factory default by clicking the RESET button for 15 seconds on the indoor IDU unit and wait for the indoor and outdoor units to restart and resume communication (it takes about 6 minutes).
2. You can also try to update the encryption key in Device Management> System> Encryption Key. Than you will see Encryption key screen and do update!
If the modem still does not communicate with the external unit after the update, try to load an alternative firmware from the Polish operator PLAY into the modem B2368_V100R001C00SPC057T
