we826 mc7455 and thanks for the help

i can lock to band 2 or any of the others .when im unlocked and getting my best speeds it is auto connecting to band 2 with band 12 and i get real good speeds. but for some reason it likes to connect to band 4 which is really slow.and say i just lock to band 2 it is better than band 4 but nothing like if it can mix band 2 and 12 . and need the bitmask (i guess thats what it is called ) for band 2 and band 12 mixed?. coudnt seem to get the speadsheet to work

Have you tried the Spreadsheet, selecting Band 2 and Band 12 from the drop down.

Band 2 & 12.png

Take the group of bands once created in the spreadsheet and go to MODEM > MISCELLANEOUS > AT-COMMAND TERMINAL and program the group run these commands (run on line at a time).

Code: Select all

AT!entercnd="A710"
AT!BAND=10,"2 & 12",0,802
AT!BAND=10
AT!RESET
 
Give it few seconds after the last command and do a power off/power on reboot.

When the router comes back online, you can check the band settings to assure they were properly applied by running the AT Commands:

Code: Select all

AT!entercnd="A710"
AT!BAND?
Which return the 2 & 12 Group of the bands.

you typed in :

Code: Select all

AT!entercnd="A710"
AT!BAND=10,"2 & 12",0,802
AT!BAND=10
AT!RESET
One command at a time, slowly?

Then after the reboot typed:

Code: Select all

AT!entercnd="A710"
AT!BAND?
And:
Index, Name, GW Band Mask L Band Mask TDS Band Mask
0A, B2, 0000000000000000 0000000000000002 0000000000000000


OK
