I was able to get the external antenna wired up and outside. I'm getting anywhere from 20-25 down right now.

Nice! I'd suggest getting a secondary antenna. You could potentially get double the download speed (upload will stay the same cause it only uses MIMO and one antenna).

Also, you'll have more signal diversity, so if your signal for some reason gets into a deep fade, it will still work.

Thanks Jim,

I was able to use this forum to get my WG3526 with the MC7455 working. I had been using a Verizon sim card form my work iPad and had no problems. But when I switched to a TMO sim card from another tablet my speeds were less than .5Mbs. After much searching I finally found these instructions,

NETWORK > FIREWALL > CUSTOM TTL SETTINGS and ENABLE for Value 65. SAVE & APPLY

Once I did this and rebooted my speeds went to 20Mbs up and 7Mbs down.
Thanks again,
Mike

Hello jmattivi,

Unless if I mistaken, you don't precised if you change the power supply from "12V 1A" to "12V 2A" ? Because I guess the Sierra EM7565 has an equivalent power consumption than the Sierra EM7455.

https://ltefix.com/shop/routers/lte-rou ... te-router/
"We strongly recommend upgrading to our top quality 12V 2.5A (30W) power adapter when using the Sierra Wireless EM7565 CAT12 modem. One must not underestimate the importance of providing adequate power to the router and modem."

I study that configuration because I try to flash my WE826-T for EM 7455, but I've a problem with the "software OpenWRT-OS-V1.0" which isn't allowing to have access to the root account. For the moment I wait for the seller answer, but I've doubts about his participation to fix the glitch...

I hope that will improved the quality of signal reception. My solution was to create an extension from my ATX computer power supply, but the WE826-T stay stuck.
