Relayed? Follow These Settings

Problem:

Helium Explorer is showing relayed status.

Solution:

  1. Login to your router
    • (ie., 192.168.1.100/192.168.0.1/)

  2. Locate DHCP Reservations/Servers, usually under Local Network
  3. Turn off UPnP
  4. Open Port 44158 via TCP / Inbound / External
  5. You will need to reboot in the following order to ensure the settings have been applied.
    1. Unplug everything (Modem, Router, Miner)
    2. Plug everything back in the following order.
      1. Modem ==> Wait until fully online to move to step 2.
      2. Router ==> Wait until fully online to move to step 3.
      3. Helium Miner

Congratulations, you should be be out of ‘Relayed Status‘ in a few hours due to Helium Explorer API not updating fast enough, do not worry, just keep checking every few hours.

Please note:

In Step 1 and Step 4, Helium Miners have 2 MAC-ID’s, one is for Wi-Fi connections, the other is for Ethernet connections.

If you are plugged in VIA Ethernet, you will port forward connections for the Helium Miner based on Ethernet only.

If you are connected VIA Wi-Fi, you will port forward connections for the Helium Miner based on Wi-Fi only.
