Re: Building Home WI-FI

In situations like yours I think the ultimate goal would be to get an external antenna up as high as you possibly can. Best bet is above the tree line with direct line of site to the tower. In determining which antenna I would start with the provider and cellmapper. Use cellmapper to get an idea of ...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

I believe OMR does support direct connections, however, I'm not sure if it can handle multiple as i've never tried. Also the OMR box is already extremely busy with everything else so I'd recommend keeping the modems separate. It all depends on how fast you want your setup to go really. LTE equipment...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

I have between 4 to 5 LTE modems running at any given time. They all plug into the Protectli running OMR. Example Modem/router setup: WE1326 router with internal EM7565 modem RBM33G router with internal EM20G modem WRT32X router connected to RBM502Q-AE modem in USB3 enclosure connected to WRT32X usb...

Re: EM160R-GL antenna pin outs?

Good point. I didn't think of that. Matter of fact there are A LOT of settings in Quectel modems that are handled in this way. You must first 'enable' the ability to change a setting to be able to actually change the setting. IMO, the most important command for checking signal strength/integrity see...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

The H721 may have a capable internal slot as that is one of the few I've not tested. I will say this however, these new modems are power hungry lil turds and in my personal experience, I've had trouble with about every setup with the random disconnects and such. Most of the time these modems are des...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

I love the idea of the RBM33G, but I've heard people have SO MUCH trouble w/ getting either ROOTer or OpenWRT on it. Same for you? No trouble here after figuring out what is trying to get accomplished. If you know how to use ssh and have a spare router around with rooter/GO installed you should be ...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

I doubt anyone has tested all the different routers, but if you had a resource with your opinions on the ones you have tested, that would be SUPER useful. Could you share any highlights from your experience so far, good and bad? Uh lets see. My first was the WE1326. She's still in use with an EM756...

Re: What's your ideal OVERKILL setup?

As far as bonding goes, I'm fond of the Protectli Vault 4 running OMR. As far as modem setups, a modem in the usb 3 enclosure plugged into a WRT32X running rooter/goldenorb is by far the fastest/snappiest I've tested. I've not tested all of the different routers for rooter/GO but I've dabbled in my ...

Re: EM12G - Smart Device Connection Issue

Were you able to figure out which protocol both were running in and try switching the new modem to the same protocol as the old modem from Didneywhorl's suggestions? Sometimes it can be as easy as that but that be to easy right. If you can, try to post system logs of both and we can try to compare a...

Re: EM12G - Smart Device Connection Issue

Sounds like a DNS issue. Typically smart devices like to look up and phone home using there own settings and path. You might look at DNS settings between the 2 and see if something is changing that is causing the problem?
