Hauwei 525 help and questions...


[link to this post]
 
Hi. Iíve been using various mobile broadband routers and antennas for years as our main broadband due to our preference for rural living, mainly with Three. Itís been fine with little tinkering until we moved house a couple of months ago.

Now the speed massively drops, and Iím pretty sure itís a band issue. Sometimes the signal strength indicates good signal (full bars) but I only get 2mbps. When the router shows 2 or 3 bars, I get 30-40mbps.

Is there anything, other than flashing the firmware on the 525 to get band options, that I can do to switch it back to the faster band (and keep it on it)? Is there anyway to see what band Iím on?

We have got iOS devices, if that makes any difference (in terms of apps at).

Thanks.

Thanks.

Ok, I may have answered my own question here...

I have downloaded LTEInspecteur onto my laptop and I have been able to set the router to B3. Back to nice decent speeds again smile

Can anyone tell me, is the setting persistent? Or will the router switch back to B20 at some point?

It will stay around even if you restart the device.

It will return to it's default settings if you reset the device via the functionality in the router homepage (for example if you want to sell it).

Itís not in English, but scroll down till you see the Ďnon-portableí version. Download (the app is actually in English) and install on a Windows machine.

I found the link in another thread on here.

Quite simple really. Band 20 has less bandwidth than Band 3, hence it is slower. Often Band 20 is a stronger signal and picked up in preference to Band 3. In the router settings page, click the 'Settings' tab. Make sure Band 20 is unchecked and click 'Apply'. You will then only use Band 3.

Thanks, I realise that but the 525 I have does not have that option in the settings.

Click on 'Dial-up' and scroll to Network Settings. It's there.

Trust me, it isnít. Most versions of the 525 donít have it.

Itís why people install alternative firmware - https://forums.thinkbroadband.com/mobilebroadband/f/...
