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...

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

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

I did in fact lock the modem to band 2 last night. It seems to now stay on the closer towers 99% of the time, but still has jumped to the distant tower at least once. (As an aside, I've also seen it pick up the distant tower on band 30, which in theory should have, relative to band 12 or even 2, alm...

why is my MC7455 suddenly camping on a weak signal?

I have a WE826/MC7455 setup on the AT&T iPad plan. My antenna is the 1DP1727X15, connected with two short pieces of LMR400. It's all set up inside my house for the moment, as I don't want to expend any time and money on an outdoor setup til I see if (1) AT&t is going to crack down on non-iPad users ...

Have you checked your antenna connections to the MC7455?
