Frequent modem disconnects MC7455/WG3526

Post by Vegas » Fri Jan 18, 2019 6:42 pm

The modem drops connection frequently, seems to correspond with a new or returning device accessing wifi. Other wifi devices can still communicate to the router, but no internet service. I setup connection monitoring with modem reconnect which brings it back up very quickly.

I've already reset and reconfigured the modem to MBIM and added the Sprint OTA. No change. Using Calyx Sprint SIM.

Any ideas?

What does your signal stats look like while connected. It is possible that the signals are less than optimal, and it is connecting on Band 41 at 2500HMz and the 2.4GHz (2400MHz) may be interfering and/or interrupting the quality of signals being received by the modem.

Also, try disabling Connection Monitor.

While it is connected, run the following command and post the results:

Code: Select all

AT!GSTATUS?

Without connection monitoring, it does the same thing but requires intervention to reconnect... resetting the router or modem.

Your antenna stats are usable.

Your issue could be related to the MTU value being too large for the tower you are using. This seems to affect some and not others.

This are recent discussions on the GoldenOrb Forum concerning this type of Sprint connection issues. Start on the bottom page and read forward.

I changed to n.ispsn and set the MTU value to the one suggested in the forum... still disconnecting. I'll see if disabling the wifi and setting up another router as an AP will be smoother.

It's definitely workable... it reconnects so quickly it doesn't even stop video streaming. Every once in awhile I'll notice a website take too long to load and I know it's resetting, and see it in the logs, but I can live with that. I just wish I could pin point the cause.

What did you finally use for the MTU value? You might also try 1428.
