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--??

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