LTE18 upload speed improvments

Post by ScopesNC »

Hi New to this board.

Just bought a new Cudy LTE18. I have it hooked up to a 4 x 4 external antenna system on our 5th wheel camper. In the past I had a LBR20 Orbi which did OK ,but for reasons AT&T wont explain to me was blacklisted after a years use. So I have now gone with the Cudy. It is faster than the Orbi was yes I expected that due to the 4 x 4 external antenna set up. I'm getting a solid 3 bars form AT&T about 2 1/2 miles away. Speed is good at 80 to 90 Mbps downloads. That said I'm trying to get a faster upload speed. It get around 2 to 4 Mbps uploads. Same was true for my old Nighthawk router and the Orbi. I just can't seem to get faster uploads. Are there any settings in the LTE18 that may improve this slow upload speed? What else could I try and do to improve this upload speed? No complaints here I really like the LTE18 and it is simple for this old guy to set up and use. I'm just trying to tweak and gain more upload if possible.

Thanks for any input on this.

Hey Scopes.

I usually default to two things with upload.

First is signal. What are your signal numbers?
Run:
AT+RSRP
...in the AT command page.

Are you generally in a single location for long periods of time, or do you move around a lot? The above may be different every time you move.

If you are getting signal then the tower is reaching you, but are you sure you are reaching the tower? This would effect upload. Signal quality/noise would as well.


Second: What bands are you connecting to? Bands like B41 are TERRIBLE on the upload as a general configuration. It, and some other bands, aren't known for upload provisioning.

Yes as I'm new to using the LTE18 I'm still trying to figure out what all I can see and change in the GUI. Have not found bands and usage of them if it even shows me. I do like the Cudy router though. Straight forward set up and simple turn up.
