Why do people do it if it's not necessary?
Some don't know it isn't necessary. Others likely do it as a precaution in case it ever becomes necessary.

Re: Can someone explain how local resellers work?

How is it price gouging when someone is offering a service that I really want and I have the money and I am 100% OK with paying for it? I've been leasing multiple lines from different people for the past year. On the service it feels shady only because it's new and not something most people ever ha...

Re: Fastest Modem for Upload?

For example, if my phone here was directly connected to a cell tower configured the same, upload/download speeds between those towers should be identical. If I could amplify my broadcast to even 1% of that tower however, I’d be in the 3mbps UL range, 30mbps DL rather than .07mbps UL, 30mbps DL But ...

Re: Can a Sim card be provisioned to only work with specific router equipment

Sounds like you hit the limit for hotspot data. Solution should be simply playing with the ttl setting until it no longer registers as hotspot data but as device data. I think 65 is what generally works but don't quote me on that. You should find the setting in the firewall section.

Re: New ZBT WG1608 5G-ready router + GoldenOrb firmware

There's apparently a 12/02 goldenorb up now... Anyone done any analysis on the differences? Changelogs sure would be nice, but with all the routers they're supporting I suppose that would be far too much to ask.

Re: DMZ - Alternative to Bridging a Router

Try "any" or "1-65535"... That should cover all ports.

Re: Can someone explain how local resellers work?

Unless they're changing imei's then there's likely nothing illegal going on. Definitely violating TOS and the huge markups might be borderline price-gouging, but there's nothing to be done about it other than attempting to educate others to avoid them.

Re: Question on antenna

Actually it does list the gain... 20-25dbi if you were to believe the description... DO NOT BELIEVE THE DESCRIPTION. There's not an lpda on the market with anywhere near that much gain. Most are 9-11dbi.

Re: TTL with external router?

That is normal... The value you see on a ping test is actually the remaining ttl on the return packet. If you didn't have custom firewall rules overwriting the ttl then it would vary a lot depending on the sites you're pinging and how many hops it takes along the way. Since the mofi is setting it to...
