Re: Sierra Wireless Modems - Programming Carrier Bands

Can anyone tell me what AT! command would tell me what Bands my Sierra modem is detecting? Not which bands it's capable of, but which bands are available/ detectable from my tower. Thanks!

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

High frequency signal loss especially above 1Ghz, even in low loss coax is quite significant on longer cable runs of over 30 feet (about 10 meters), in fact it increases almost exponentially with the cable length. As a test I would attach the "stick" antennas which came with the router, and run som...

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

Got a new SIM on the way home from work today. All is well. Speeds are consistent. I agree, I will likely let things be for awhile before dabbling into band locking. So far it likes to sit in 66 at 10mhz. Getting ish 30 down and 8 up. BTW, running 100 feet (per antenna) of coax. Curious just how muc...

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

getting 30-70 down right now and 6 to 12 up with my MIMO yagi setup. no channel locking yet. tower is 5 miles away.

A little better than I was getting on my ZTE hotspot. Hoping this Cat12 modem is a huge upgrade.

Can anyone confirm the rumor that using an adapter effects the Cat12 modem potential?

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

Both slots seem to have worked. (Which is cool to know that the internal slot is also usable). It seems to be the SIM card that was the issue ::JIM ROLLS EYES:: possibly along with the APN. It's odd because the SIM that doesn't work, works fine in my other device. The APN I used was NXTGENPHONE. I'm...

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

I am up and running! Thank you so much for your help. I will test and tweak/ fine-tune for the next few days and see what happens. I will head into AT&T tomorrow and try to get a new Sim. REALLY appreciate your help, logic, and quick responses. PS: I will need a PC (non Mac) to channel/ band lock co...

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

So first, good idea. This new Sim is not throwing error codes. I'm getting a lot of "OK" now. But the modem is still not connecting: "Wed Feb 26 17:33:25 2020 : Attempting to Connect Modem #1 (Sierra_Wireless,_Incorporated Sierra_Wireless_EM7511_Qualcomm®_Snapdragon™_X16_LTE-A) Wed Feb 26 17:34:06 2...

Re: WE-826 T2...Sim card does not stay in the slot

If your modem adapter has a built-in sim tray, try that instead of the one in the router. Might be a stab in the dark, but you'll never know till you try it. Bill, I thought the same thing. I saw the port when I took the modem back off. Well I just went ahead and tried. No bones. Was definitely hop...
