TTL for Verizon (tablet sim) hotspot detection

Post by RockyinNM » Sat Apr 13, 2019 8:12 am

Hello,
I'm running a WE826-T2-7455 modem--it is flashed with-- LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-18.228.31946-f64b152) / GoldenOrb_2018-11-03 ( OpenWrt 18.06.1 )
I DID NOT BUILD THIS MYSELF__disclaimer!!

That said, I'm running a couple different (Verizon) sims--I is unlimited data (prepaid) side--NO problems there, but a bit pricey--
The other, that I would like to dial in is a (tablet) sim on the (postpaid) side)---BUT it is limited to 15 gbs, as a HOTSPOT.
Has anyone had any success with Verizon, being able to mask there hotspot use--I have tried custom TTL settings so far of (65-64)--no luck yet!
I'm open to any thoughts/tips--Rocky

PS When using the tablet sim, in (router) it still shows up as a tablet on the Verizon post-paid site--when using a different device on the postpaid side--it will show the modem being used-sierra 7455.

You might try changing the TTL to 117. It is not included in the drop down selection so you will need to add the rules manually.

Go to NETWORK > FIREWALL > CUSTOM TTL SETTING > and enable with TTL to 65 and Save & Apply.

Next go to the CUSTOM RULE (top of page) and copy the two lines between #startTTL and #endTTL.

Then go back to the CUSTOM TTL SETTINGS and DISABLE and SAVE & APPLY.

Now go back to the CUSTOM RULES page and paste the two TTL lines you copied.

Change the 65 on both lines to 117 and RESTART FIREWALL.

copy and paste--I have a few questions--??

(after copying--do I cut the 2 lines out--or leave them??)

Then go back to the CUSTOM TTL SETTINGS and DISABLE and SAVE & APPLY.

Now go back to the CUSTOM RULES page and paste the two TTL lines you copied.

Change the 65 on both lines to 117 and RESTART FIREWALL.

Thanks, Rocky

When you disable the TTL settings the lines will disappear. That is why you will need to manually place the code in the custom rules.

Thank you for your detailed instructions!!
I was NOT able to implement the NEW code until 2:30pm DMT--so it may take until tomorrow before I can tell if it is working.
You will be one of the first to know--
again, many thanks, Rocky

PS: working GREAT--many thanks, Rocky

I have a flasher in Kansas that's been doing my jetpack/usb modem device custom firmware flashes for years.
His custom files are in his private collection and not released to the public. He just did 2 Jetpack 8800's, and I've been using a 7730L he did last year for me. I use just under 400GB's a month in my mobile office (ps4, laptop, 3 android devices), watch live 1080p video streaming all the time. He also mods the nighthawk mr1100 so they perform better on AT&T's network with carrier aggregation and bypass their network management throttles without using another device. Gets about 180Mbps down where he lives with that one.

It's more of the latter. xD He's probably talking about Rich Hathaway, known about him from the old CDMA forum days (which is now dead anyway). He does some custom flashing work but all private stuff, which is really not in the open spirit of this forum. That stuff may have been of interest before OpenWRT, but now it's a moot point. Next! ;D

Is it possible to get in touch with for his services?
