FAQs

Q1: How to use Cell Lock on the Deco X50-5G?
Sometimes Deco X50-5G might be switching between different Band combinations, Cell Lock helps to manually set Deco X50-5G to the desired band combination to improve the network speed and stability.
Cell Lock is supported for 4G and 5G respectively. It is under Deco APP>More>Internet>Cell Lock.

To enable it, you need to enter ARFCN (EARFCN for 4G and NRARFCN for 5G) and the corresponding PCI of the desired LTE/5G Cell, which can be found under Deco APP>More>Internet.

Hi David, 

 

Quick update, after I manually selected 4g and 5g band main unit freeze and restarded but so far in last 24 hours no red light and download gone up from 150mb to 250mb average and upload gone from 22mb to 36mb average.

 

Thank you for this beta version, looks like it is right direction for Deco.

Hi, Nice to see you again.

Honestly, I haven't heard any news of Deco X50-4G yet. 

I can double-check with the engineer later and update it here.

Thank you very much and best regards.

 

Update: I'm afraid there hasn't been a plan to support bridge mode on Deco X50-4G.

May I know why you want to set Deco X50-4G in bridge mode?

Thank you very much and best regards.

Hello,

Since the last update my internet speed is slower!

I went from 250mb to arround 150. My ISP has the following bands: B1, B3, B8, N28, N78.  Its a NSA 5G network,before this last update i always had one 4g band and one 5g band agregated, after the update, it only gives me separate B1 or B3 or both at same time in auto, i tried to manually select the following: B1 , N28, N78 it only connects to B1.

It doesnt connect to N28 or N78 anymore.

I tried to install previous firmware and i couldnt. What  should i do?!

Hi, Welcome to the community.

Have you tried to find the Cell ID(PCI/ARFCN) when Deco X50-5G is about 250m/s and locked to this cell tower?

Wait for your reply and best regards.

Hi,

im no internet or network expert, all i can tell you is that before the last firmware update, i always had one 4g band  + one 5g band.

Usually in Auto Band i always had B1 + N78 sometimes B1+ N28, this is the fastest speeds in my case (200-300 Mbps).

After the last firmware update, in Auto Band, all i see is only B1 or only B3 or both B1+B3. I mannually selected B1 and N78, but only displays B1, and the speeds go from 40Mbps to 150.

In Auto Band, the same, i cant reach 200, before i had between 200-300.

Available ISP bands: B1,B3,B8,B20, N28,N78. I didnt trie to lock cells, because i have to put values between ex: 0-1000, i have no clue what to put to the specific cells.

I dont know if the terms im using, are correct as well.

Hi, Thank you very much for the further details.

I would like to forward your case to the senior engineers for further assistance. Please check whether you could receive my email.

 

By the way, firmware 1.1.5 could be rolled to 1.1.3 directly via the web interface:

How to Update the Firmware of Deco ---method 2 via Web UI

(The downgrade process is the same as the firmware upgrade) and you can find the 1.1.3 bin file here:

Wait for your reply and best regards.
