Node internet access

What are the correct Set up settings for a node to have internet access for the purpose of the AREDN map?   We have a Pi on the node that sees the internet but for some reason after clicking  "Upload data to AREDN Servers"   I receive the message  :  ERROR  Cannot update map.  Please ensure this node has access to the internet.
Thank you-

The node would need to have

The node would need to have its WAN port plugged into a connection that has internet access (either via a breakout switch for most devices or the AirRouter already has it broken out) OR there would need to be a meshgw providing internet access.

Thank you KC6JEI,  Is there a write up on the AREDN site that gives detail on the proper way to set-up the nodes  "Mesh Gateway"  for mapping purposes if the node is just part of the AREDN mesh and does not have an internet connected swiitch?
