826-T MC7455 Sprint Painfully Slow

Post by stlsvt » Mon Dec 31, 2018 10:40 am

I have posted on the FB page about my issue but figured some of you might not see it there. I just put this together a few days ago using 826-T with Sierra MC7455 and flashed openwrt-we826-GO2018-09-02-upgrade.bin and set the APM to n.ispsn. I have a Sprint sim removed from a working Iphone on my personal unlimited Sprint family plan, I removed the sim and installed it into this new router, I followed the tutorial to the letter and it works. Trouble is it is extremely slow compared to another Sprint phone in side by side testing the phone will see 25-30M down with around 5-6 up and ping is usually around 100. The router will not even break 1M down and usually times out before anything can finish. I have had a few try and help from FB and believe me it is very much appreciated. I am not sure if this is the best that I can expect or if there is something off with my setup?

Signal stats look good.

Can you try a wired ethernet connection to the router, to see if it is any faster? I'm wondering if you have interference or something on the wifi side.

What should I be using for APN for Sprint?

Some of the thoughts are that it is in some sort of tether mode or maybe it has something to do with IPV6? I found a command to enable IPV6 and tried to run it and it only gave an error each time I tried it.

I'm not really sure to be honest, sprint LTE issues are always very odd to me.

You could try a speed test from openwrt as well, just to rule out anything else.
