Re: NEXP1GO + telit help!

Thanks for the help, Didney. It could very well be that my signal just isn't strong enough. Although the signal I was receiving on B2 was comparable to B14, only 14 worked. I'm currently locked on B14. The lm960 is is 4x4, so is that RSRP and RSRQ for the first set of main and diversity antennas? O...

Re: Affordable Low-loss Coax cable type for outdoor antenna!

In regards to your antennas, the wilsons are good, the Baosity not so much. Its a wifi antenna with RP-SMA connectors rather than an LTE antenna with SMA connectors. I highly doubt that it hits 25DBI gain either. Plus it is designed to cover the wifi spectrum and you need it to cover the LTE spectru...

Your frequency and pci are incorrect. For instance, take a look at your 'servingcell' output. The frequency would be '67086' and your pci is '164'. Also, if you lock to 1 band then no CA. you would need to lock to all that you 'may' use in CA. I've played with locking and things didn't go as well as...

Re: Slow Speeds on RM502Q-AE

Are your 'per connection' results from a direct connection to the modems or are the results based on what you are seeing through speedify? If you know how to send AT commands, can you post your results of AT+QENG="servingcell" ? First thing I would do if not done already is eliminate the a...

Re: High ping

I never actually used the phone for services or VoIP. I only used it for latency& speed tests. Right, however, the phone still may have the ability to prioritize certain packets differently than a data only modem/router setup. I'm not saying this is what is happening, just offering that it may ...

Re: RM502Q-AE based cell scanner

[*] Should I reset the modem after changing the heading (AT+CFUN=1,1) or will the modem settle on a new better cell eventually by itself? I want to avoid having the modem stuck to an inferior but useable cell because then I won't have accurate metrics for that heading. [*] Will 4x4 MIMO only kick i...

Re: High ping

I've had a few plans across pretty much all of the providers typically used and usually see anywhere from 25ms to 100ms latency. 25ms is about the best I've seen in a few years. If using an MVNO provider they are even higher latency due to additional routing on their end of things through different ...

Re: T-Mobile Gateway Signal Question

I dont think there is anything to 'fix'. What you are seeing is what would be expected from connecting an external antenna to only certain ports. B12 is a low frequency band, therefore, you will hardly ever see a secondary connection to the 5G band n71 since it is also a low frequency band. In my ne...

Re: T-Mobile Gateway Signal Question

Sounds like you are having the same issues as I have been fighting for months. For starters, cellmapper doesn't have 5G info available as far as I know so that would explain why you can't find matching PCI. Tmo service works in ENDC mode which uses a combination of 4G and 5G signals, 4G being the pr...

Re: T-Mobile Gateway Signal Question

Does it make a difference? I was reading that the modem chooses which antennas to use on which band and can switch between all 4 any time it wants.. in other words, doesn't matter which ports you connect to.. Any antenna can be used for any band.. I do not know much about your particular modem, how...

Re: MC7455 produces differnt speeds in differnt devices?

Just remoted into my rbm33g at home and the file I was thinking of is 'atlog' but it looks like it only stores recent history.

Re: MC7455 produces differnt speeds in differnt devices?

- in the RBM33G, i place the modem in the left-most slot, furthest from the USB port. I'm aware of the jumper to disable USB2.0 in favor of the middle pcie slot, but i'm not using either of those. - I would think USB2's max speed of 480Mbps would not be a bottleneck at the speeds I'm seeing (under ...

Re: MC7455 produces differnt speeds in differnt devices?

How is it connected to the RBM33G? Did you install in one of the internal slots or did you connect via usb port? I think I ended up running mine in the pcie slot closest to the outer edge of the board. If you want usb3 speeds you will have to run it via usb port as the pcie ports are usb2 at best. M...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

Having said that, you do need to be careful with cellular connections that you're not trying to combine two identical devices from the same carrier. Two identical modems on the same data plan, hitting the same tower, will aggregate poorly -- and likely will be no faster than they would be individua...

Re: Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Surprisingly, this doesn't get mentioned much but the TTL modifications need to have the correct interface or its really not doing much of anything. In your case the device talking to the internet is the MR1100. The MR1100 is connected to the routers WAN port (eth0.2). Since you are using it in this...

Re: EM12-G: MIMO vs CA

Not RSSI, but RSRP. It shows the power of the reference signals within and across the band it is connected to. CA is different than MIMO. CA uses different frequency bands (for the most part and for general understanding purposes) such as 700Mhz and 850Mhz connections from the tower and MIMO is just...

Re: We826 t2 possibly flagged?

If I remember correctly, the apn for prepaid phone plan is 'nxtgenphone' and not 'broadband'. I think broadband apn is for hotplot/tablet type devices. Might try changing apn and see what happens? Also might try to ping another device from the router to verify it is using correct TTL.

Re: Visible 5Mbps Throttle workarounds

Running things through the VPN would add at a minimum 1 additional hop so I guess makes sense that when you add one or more to your TTL it works.

I was not implying to not change the TTL at all, I was implying there isn't a reason to use a "new" number such as 88 when what has been used in the past whether it be 64, 65, 66 etc. should work. Maybe, maybe not, if anything bumping the TTL up by one should do the trick I would think sin...
