Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

You caught Walter!!! :-) Interesting that Walter's signal strength is worse than the other CID. The strengths of the primary CIDs may be close enough that it is a toss of the dice which one you get. It doesn't use secondaries for deciding that. It is also possible that it is taking away the other CI...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

HA! So you don't *know* which tower the 166 Mbps came from. :lol: That is damn fast, and at such a distance. But it does make me think of searching for Walter in On Golden Pond: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_h8C_rCbgU You know he's out there somewhere now! :lol: Your uploads are suffering with o...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

That *is* a long way! lol The online databases often have incorrect and missing information, so I wouldn't take too much stock in that. The locations, especially, are often very wrong. If you use google maps in satellite mode and find the tower there and get the coordinates from that, then you'll ha...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

That is a different tower than your earlier tests. Look at the CID. Could be same tower and different transmitters, but the band is different too. If it is jumping between towers and the bands are mutually exclusive, you can lock out the band(s) of the one you don't want. You could lock out band 66 ...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

Congrats on the good results! Something weird happened when you disconnected the second antenna. That wasn't just losing MIMO. Might want to try it again to see if those results repeat. You have 20 MHz total bandwidth. Are there possibly other towers you can reach? They might have more bandwidth.

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

That's called SUCCESS! Congratulations! :D And good luck at your place. What is the last screenshot from? The one where it was only 4.64 Mbps down. Your test server was different then too. Regarding coax cable, another option is powering the devices outside in weatherproof enclosures and then runnin...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

There is a build of the WiFiX firmware that apparently has a login option where you can get the signal stats updated in near realtime instead of having to run the command manually in the misc modem screen. I think this would help you greatly in aiming the antennas. If you have a hand held signal met...

Re: Is anyone using T-Mobile Rural with good results?

I did fill out a survey on the site to send to the carriers yesterday and I will let you know what they say from my particular location Can you elaborate more on what type of survey you filled out and on which site? As for my testing, unfortunately, it won't be really soon. I have a car transmissio...

Re: Latency Issues? (Solved: QMI > MBIM)

I don't know if this is a good or bad thing though, makes me feel like my hands are %100 tied when dealing with this. As who can I call to tell them a tower is crap? Basically no one, I just have to wait almost 2 months for things to get better or hope they get better. Why couldn't you call Verizon...

Re: Is anyone using T-Mobile Rural with good results?

If I try it with my phone SIM in the LTE router, I'll report back on the results.
