High Guys,

 

I had a similar issue to some of you?

 

I'm mid cell for band 20 and edge cell for band 1 and the MR600 router normally connect 4G+ on bands "1,20" and I got really good download(65Meg) and upload(15Meg) speeds?  Over the last weekend it looks like some maintenance took place as the mast was down early hours Sunday morning and when I checked the MR600 router it connected as 4G "20,1" and my download and upload speeds are now really bad.  It looks like band 1 was tweaked to give a slightly stronger signal?  I then installed the beta software and selected "Band A - 20" and "Band B -1" and now get 4G+ on bands "1,20" again and everything working as before smiley

I've been using https://www.cellmapper.net/ to get an idea on my local cell towers and the bands they use. Around me (UK) most are 3 with the odd 7 or 20 which are on the edge of my location.  My question is would there be must use in me specifying a band other that 3,3 (or just just leave auto) if my location is not served with multple different bands?

You can make a few tests by choosing different bands and see which one gives you the best performance. Or if you haven't had problems on auto just leave it on auto.

My tower is 3,3 - I do have one that offers 20,3 but will never connect... 3,3 it is...

@darant @john.awad Thanks guys,  I take it to get a 4G+ you need to be connected to two bands? (3,3 or 3,7 for example)

 

Out of interest sometimes on the basic page of the router settings my internet shows 4G+ in blue and sometimes 4G+ in green, does anyone know what the difference is?

Oh good catch. I don't think I noticed this color change yet. I'm wondering the same thing now..

Hi.

 

Good improvement, most likely with few minor bugs on the drop down list boxes for bandwidth selection (that I did not experience in my case).

 

I really appreciate the effort ! Thanks for that.

 

As further improvement, it would be very useful for many users to see the enodeB Identifier: in my case I have 2 enodeB close to my house, one with (1,7,20) and one with (3,7,20), and if I select (7,20) as frequencies I have no idea to which enodeB I am connected. For example, in case of fault of one enodeB (suppose the one with (3,7,20)), I could select band 1 first, and later change it with (7,20), and I should still be on the enodeB (1,7,20) - at least I hope that it works like that :-)

 

Thanks.

Nicola.

@Nicola_IT Use CellMapper dot NET to see if you can tell... It has phone apps too.. In my case, my 4G via the MR600 only connects to the same 3,3 mast yet my phone and other devices switches.. My MIMO antenna also onlt connects to the 3,3 one...

@darant thank you for the suggestion. Problem is that the 2 enodeB close to my house have the same common frequencies (7,20), and then I can't understand what is the eNodeB the router connects, without having the enodeB Identiffier. Other router brands provide this information. I don't think it is difficult to write it somewhere in the router configuration pages.Once I know the enodeB Identifier, using "lteitaly" web site for example, I may know the exact enodeB.

@Nicola_IT 

Hi Nicola,

In the meantime if you install the "lteitaly.it" app on your smartphone and login your account he'll tells you which eNodeB you are connected to by router.
