Has the TTL respond with different number other than 64 after reboot?
No. Still 64. I can re-run through the different TTL settings and try to uncheck the enable ttl like we did before. But if that doesn't work then it's a reflash I'm guessing.

I would imagine so if others didn't have problem with it. It's also the reason you are leaking hotspot data.

OK. So here's the update so that maybe it can help someone else. I did not have to reflash. What I did have to do was some trial and error with my custom rules thanks to some posts on this site and the FB site. These custom rules below now have me pinging ttl 117 with no errors in my iptables/ip6tables when I run <root@WiFiX:~# /etc/init.d/firewall restart> like I was getting before.

Most importantly I've also completely stopped leaking hotspot data since I inserted the new custom rules and had no impact to performance. Thanks for all the help and guidance and others on the sites who have unknowingly contributed. Here's the custom rules:

#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 117
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 117
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 117
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 117
#end TTL rules

Note: Running WG3526P, EM12G modem on Verizon.

Benn able to do this in the past with my Verizon phone sim in a Quectel EP06. But for some reason couldn't get this to work on a EM12G. Don't know why, odd Especially since bigmac79 got it to work.

It was a lot of help and trial and error. Happy to share my settings if it helps you any.
