Spitz x750/EP06 + Verizon / TTL?

Post by dogdragon » Thu Dec 10, 2020 7:54 pm

If this is the wrong board section, let me know and I'll move it!

I have the Spitz all set up with the Verizon unlimited tablet plan, working well. I'm running stock firmware that the Spitz came with.

I had the TTL settings set to 65 as I was instructed, but I noticed after 24gb I was being throttled. Switched it to 64, and got some speed back. I still appear to be losing data through hotspot as well, as it's now showing 27gb.

Am I missing something?? These are the TTL settings I have set currently:

#start 007 rules
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o usb0 -j HL --hl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i usb0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
#startTTL
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o usb0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i usb0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
#endTTL

Please let me know what I should change it to instead. Do I need to flash ROOter or GoldenOrb onto the Spitz instead? I'd rather not have to try and set it all up again, it was a pain and nerve wracking, hah. I'm very new to this.

Just changed the TTL settings to

#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 64
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 64
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 64
#end TTL rules

I have no idea what these things mean, but it looked different to what I had previously. Will see how this one goes tonight in usage...

iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 117
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -j TTL --ttl-set 117
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 117
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 117
#end TTL rules

also make sure to set all DNS setting-this also helped me

Thanks Rocky. The changes I made match what you posted, except with 64 rather than 117. It seems to have helped last night after the change. I'm keeping track of both total usage and hotspot usage now. Went up a little over 2gb total use, only seems to be 0.051gb from hotspot, so I think it's holding ok.

Which DNS settings should I be looking at? Not sure what I've changed or set at this point.

This is from @billa---thanks to you

 it needs to be set in two places, here's how:


Modem > Connection Profile > Default Profile > Advanced > Custom DNS Server1/2 > for Server1 enter "9.9.9.9" without the quotes, and for Server2 enter "8.8.8.8" without the quotes, then Save&Apply

Network > Interfaces > LAN > Edit > Common Configuration > General Setup > Use Custom DNS Servers > enter "8.8.8.8" without the quotes, press "+" and enter  "9.9.9.9" without the quotes, then Save&Apply

LOcation in the menu for: - Spitz x750/EP06 + Verizon / TTL?

So I have a similar setup, unfortunately I am unable to locate the menu for the first item listed: "Modem > Connection Profile > Default Profile > Advanced > Custom DNS Server1/2 > for Server1 enter "9.9.9.9" without the quotes, and for Server2 enter "8.8.8.8" without the quotes, then Save&Apply"

Could one of you IT gurus point me to where I click to get to that point? The second menu "network" was found in the Advanced settings

BELOW WAS LISTED IN THE ORIGINAL POST:

I think those are goldenorb menus. I've never use a GL.inet so I don't really know myself.
