Using Visible for Mobile Internet: A Guide

Hi everyone, I have recently configured a mobile internet setup using a USB-tethered Visible Wireless cellphone hotspot, a travel router, and TTL mangling to get unlimited, unthrottled internet in my apartment. Having used it for approximately a month now, I wanted to post my solution to get this se...

When you have set ups like this almost have to have two to make it dependable. Like one on visible and one on AT&T
I completely agree, we're considering some different options right now, particularly T-Mobile's Home 5G plan.

Re: Visible Wireless Sim work??

I have a phone USB tethered to an AR750S, and as long as I'm not being deprioritized I pull ~15Mb/s, sometimes even as high as 50mb/s late at night. While deprioritized though it can drop as low as 1-3mb/s. For example, there was about an hour this past Wednesday where max DL was ~300kb/s , but that...

Re: Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Hey everyone, It's working now! Turns out I hadn't downloaded the opkg that allows TTL mangling, so none of the custom firewall rules were taking effect at all :oops: . This rule ended up being effective: # update packages opkg update # download mod package opkg install iptables-mod-ipopt # Start-IP...

Re: Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Great suggestions, thank you both. Here are the lines I tried without success (add->Save->Restart Firewall): iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o eth0.2 -j TTL --ttl-set 64 iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o eth0.2 -j TTL --ttl-set 65 iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o eth0.2 -j TTL --ttl-set 66...

Re: Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Oh wow, that's interesting, I wouldn't have thought to try higher TTL values. I wonder why your setup requires 88? I have tried the following lines so far: iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o br-lan -j TTL --ttl-set 65 iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o br-lan -j TTL --ttl-set 64 iptables -t mang...

Re: Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Thanks for the response. As for the hashes, when I applied each rule they did not have a hash in front of them, that's just so I can keep them all in the config file for reference. I just tried the rules you posted, the Wi-Fi speedtest still came back throttled unfortunately, though I do appreciate ...

Visible TTL mangling - a poor noob down on his luck

Hello everyone! First time poster, so I hope this is the right place to post this. I have read quite a bit of information from these forums about TTL mangling (including the very helpful guide by @didneywhorl: https://ltehacks.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2752 ), and I feel like I'm very close to succee...
