Re: WE826-T2 - Installing Modem Manager

Does this work with an original 826, or just the version 2?

Also, it sounds like this can support multiple modems? Can I plug my DSL modem into one of the ethernet ports and configure the software to use it if and only if the cell connection is down?

Re: WE826/MC7455 connected but losing upstream ipv4 connection

I have the same hardware on the iPad plan, set up by the well-known eBay seller who used to advertise on Facebook constantly. (I didn't do it myself because I was curious as to whether he might have some other plan than the iPad one that might not be subject to deprioritization.) At least once a wee...

What is the difference between the 2018-09-02 and 2019-01-13 versions of GoldenOrb? Just bug fixes, or different features?

tablet wont hold connection to WE826

I have a cheap tablet (Sero 7 Pro) that's still running like Android 4.0 or 4.1 (seriously). It will connect to my WE826 but any time I try to move lots of data, it disconnects. Sometimes it reconnects automatically, other times the tablet's wifi goes completely offline and needs to be reenabled fro...

Re: MC7455 in a Mofi4500 / WE826T *No Signal*

Gotta ask, are you sure your antenna connections to the modem are good?

Re: why is my MC7455 suddenly camping on a weak signal?

Since I set it to not use band 30 it's been behaving as expected. Only problem is that I'm over the 22-gig mark and getting deprioritized a lot til my next month starts. The previous month I was also over 22 gig early and didn't notice it at all. I suppose a bunch of people got new phones for Christ...

Re: why is my MC7455 suddenly camping on a weak signal?

You shouldn't need to unplug the power, but every time I've changed bands I've had to reset the router, not the modem, to reestablish internet traffic even though the modem was connected to the tower. No idea why. I originally thought it was a Sprint thing but it happens with AT&T too.

Re: 4K HTPC Network Setup

What device did you put it in and why? I put it in a WE826/MC7455 setup, because it seemed to be the cheapest option to leave plugged in permanently (I don't want to have to babysit a battery-powered hotspot) and the cheapest option with decent antenna connectors. (The new AT&T hotspots can suppose...

Re: why is my MC7455 suddenly camping on a weak signal?

I don't have time for a detailed reply, but I'm getting the tower information by taking the eNB ID from the status screen (I don't know what command to use to get this, it doesn't seem to show up in the gstatus output) and plugging it in on cellmapper.net. (The tower locations there are crowdsourced...

Re: 4K HTPC Network Setup

I bought my AT&T Prepaid SIM from Best Buy and they didn't offer to activate it for me.
