I'm beginning to lean toward something that's a little more flexible than the M1 but not overly complicated. What are some good routers / devices that support openWRT AND usb>card modem? Or is this a bad idea?

Re: Travel Data Sounds Sketchy

I tend to stay away from resellers as most of who read my threads know. Now, if the concern is only in that devices from them can be used on Verizon, that is not a surprise as Verizon does have an IMEI whitelist process. For example, if any of you were to take one of the "pre-approved" Quectel non "...

Re: Mifi 8000

This is true, but that router can USB tether hotspots/phones innately without goldenorb. It can also do modems in USB enclosures but lacks the drivers for proper performance. It works better with hostless hotspots. True, however, as a practical matter, for example, when using hostless hotspots, my ...

Re: Using phone plans in routers

I'm not sure what agenda you're pushing with that $13/gb number you throw into every thread. My agenda is to inform the people here about ATT (mis)management and any information I hear about them so that the people here are protected from sudden, rapid account terminations that leave them without a...

Re: Mifi 8000

It's a asus rt-ac68u It's a beefy router but uses Broadcom chipsets including its WiFi chipset and hence not the best match for GO. I request you to read: https://ltehacks.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1495#p10118 The other option is, as Bill mentioned, RNDIS but that limits you to your hotspot allocati...

Re: Using phone plans in routers

AT&T doesn't care about ttl True. do you know how they distinguish between phone data and hotspot data? APN, port, protocol and DNS. YOu can bypass all of this via a VPN but that lands you on a special list. To a select few users on a special list, the traffic is redirected through additional scrut...

Re: Cricket Unlimited Plan

I get the message "Yay! your Sierra Wireless EM7565 is compatible" or something along those lines. Anyone using this plan in a modem? Many people are. Looks like the Cricket $60 ($55 with autopay) plan now has speeds of 8.2-45.9mbps 1. What's the latency like? 2. How does the speedof.me graph look ...
