Re: Line drops under load (random)


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
Got my ZyXel VMG-1312-B10D today and it works well with a 3 dongle. It was Zen branded so after I cleared the ROM I was able to upgrade the firmware to the latest. I'm not 'allowed' to put it on my line because OR and Uno are monitoring DSL and also I want my 3db SNR back.

Sod's law, but what speed is that giving?

That was my point about the BQM. It didn't drop, which suggests the main PPP session was still up. Although replacing it may have been in process?

I cant speedtest as I am out of data but it is only a 3g dongle so can only visit three.co.uk.

My router reconnects in 30 seconds, so you are not gonna see that on the BQM.

What did you get it for, if you have already used up all the data allowance? And, with a non-exhausted data allowance, you can visit anywhere. Huh??

Its a backup dongle with replaceable SIM. If my line is down and I need a couple of hours I will top up, duh.

Worth trying an unlimited SIM in it, with a couple of weeks to cancel?

I suspect 3g will be pretty slow and I've never needed it this year. I haven't seen any 4g dongles only routers. I want my BB sorted first.

There are plenty of 4G dongles. Most mobile networks have been providing them for a long time. I have a 6 year old Vodafone one here. In 4G terms they are old (Cat 3).

You should be aware all networks have reduced capacity on 3G significantly.
