Band 28 is the 700mhz spectrum and isn't supported by this device, this is not a common band as most used Band29 as the lower end (800mhz).   Im guessing by the 700mhz band you are geolocated in Asia, this band is usually for the APT carriers.

 

However the Bands 40 and 41 (2300 - 2500mhz) are both common and supported by this device.  That should give you good 4G signal. 

 

Sadly you cannot change the bands, these are hard fixed by the device itself and the carrier you have selected.   As you are getting a connection this device does support the higher carrier bands your provider requires.

 

Band 28 is a FDD LTE band, where 40 and 41 are TDE bands.   These are different technologies so its either one or the other, you cant use all 3 bands.  It appears the TDE is the better option for you on Bands 40/41.  This is likely what you are connected too.

 

Below is a screenshot of the supported bands

 

 

It does sound like the device is working for you.  If you are inside try moving the location of the router, closer to a window or higher up (attic or upstairs) is usually the best position.

 

Bands are not your issue here, furthermore you cannot change them

Yes, I am located in Asia. There is no other way to lock or choose bands? Even if I upgrade my firmware? I really need to try some of your bands and see if it will suit the band that I'm looking for. I already tried to change the location of the modem and it is still the same. Hope you can send me a manual upgrade of hardware v3.

I live in EU so the firmware may be different, however below is a link to the India site to get the latest firmware, it is quite a bit newer than you are running

 

https://www.tp-link.com/in/support/download/tl-mr6400/v3/#Firmware

 

 

In terms of the band you are connected too, this is not chosen by the device.. rather the carrier (operator) you are using.  The MR6400 will support multiple bands, which one it uses is determined by the carriers sim config.  

 

Assuming you could force this onto a differenbandl, then the device would be unable to connect to your carrier unless you used the channels it recommends.   Without knowing your carrier specifically, its safe to say if you are connected at present, then you are on the correct bands.

 

All I can recommend is try to update the firmware, if that doesnt help then try a different carrier and see if that improves anything.

Is it ok to download the APAC version? Because the one I'm using is Mr6400(EU) V3 You're right I need to change bands if I'll insert another sim.
