5G Home Internet Gateway incredibly slowwwwww......
I just received the T-Mobile 5G Home Internet Gateway and can’t wait to return it to a local store. Upload and download speeds reached (*measued at intervals within a 24-hour period), as compared to what is advertised, was in fact, so far off it was a joke.Did the reset a few times, removed the SIM card and placed it back in. Noteworthy, I have a 5G tower a short distance away from me directly to the North and the signal strength on the gateway, no matter where I placed it in my two-story house, showed good to very good signal from the 5G tower. The signal from the gateway was always excellent, no matter where I moved my main laptop around in my house.Just an example on how bad (low) the speeds were was single digit Mbps average up and down and a few times there was no upload speed registering and one time the download speed was in the, UGH, Kbps. One test exhibited a much higher upload than download speed.Maybe I got a defective unit or perhaps there are some serious problems going on
all pdn ip connection failure
So after the recent update it seems like anytime I connect to a Sprint tower (that I having been using for months. B26 and B25).I don't get this error if I connect to a tower much further away from my house (that's a T-Mobile tower) no problem, no errors, other than of course terrible speeds because of poor signal.Just wondering if this is a known issue?One thing to add is my cell phone connects to the sprint tower no problem, so it seems like a issue for just TMHI / "trashcan".
2.4g devices not connecting to T-Mobile Home Network
Recently I set-up a T-Mobile 5G Home Internet and am discovering that not all my devices can connect. My Shark IQ Robot vacuum is one device that will not connect to 5G, it says it can only connect to 2.4G. Does anyone have an idea how I can get this to work?

MLB The Show does not work on my T-mobile 5g internet box.
MLB The Show does not work on my T-mobile 5g internet box. It will say “Challenge Failed” when trying to play an online match. The game works perfectly fine when i bring my xbox to my parents house. But when i bring it back to my wifi, it doesn’t work. I test the NAT type until it’s open, I reset the router, etc. I’ve done everything I can think of and there no solution. Does anyone have this same problem? This is the only game that won’t work either. This and NBA 2k brought me some issues. But i can play COD or shooters on my wifi… but cross play sports games seem to bring the issue
Connectivity Issues with T Mobile Gateway and Intel Evo Laptop: Seeking Solutions
Dear forum members,I come to you today seeking advice and solutions to a connectivity issue I've been experiencing with my Intel Evo laptop [https://www.lenovo.com/sg/en/faqs/intel/intel-evo-platform/] and T Mobile Gateway. As a frequent traveler and remote worker, I heavily rely on a stable and fast internet connection for my professional and personal needs. Unfortunately, I've encountered some challenges when attempting to connect my Intel Evo laptop to the T Mobile Gateway, and I'm hoping someone in this community can shed some light on the matter.Here are the specific issues I've been facing:Limited Connection Range: I've noticed that the range of the T Mobile Gateway's Wi-Fi signal seems to be limited when trying to connect with my Intel Evo laptop. Even when in close proximity to the gateway, the signal strength fluctuates and sometimes disconnects. Are there any known compatibility issues or settings that I need to adjust on either the laptop or the gateway to optimize the conne
Adding TP-Link RE315 extender - problems
Hello, I read and tried many of the suggestions in other posts, but some things aren’t proceeding the same as my situation. I’m trying to link up a TP-Link RE315 extender with my TMobile router, KVD21. On the TP-Link device, I connected wirelessly thru my laptop and I went in as admin and added the SSID, pw for the TMobile modem/router and have the 2g and 5g buttons lit. Somehow, yesterday my phone picked up the up the TP-Link wireless network, but no internet connectivity, but today it’s not even showing as an available network. I’ve tried ethernet connecting and the Tethering app, but, though it sees the RE315, it doesn’t pick up the TMobile KVD21 router as a device, even though there’s an ethernet cable from between the 2 devices. I’m usually not inept at this stuff, but today? I cry uncle!! Has anyone has these issues, who can help? Thanks!
HULU doesn't play well with TMOBILE home internet
I was happy to try tmobile home internet and it worked great for about a month. I had one incident where HULU thought I had moved only to find that tmobile IP address had changed. Hulu was able to match the new ip address which gave me a temporary fix. Over the last two weeks, however, service has been spotty and my IP address was changed 4 times. Tmobile service says “sorry, it doesn’t support a static IP address and doesn’t have a work-around for use with Hulu. Question: When selling tmobile home internet, can tmobile be open about the problem and tell potential customers that if they use Hulu, they should choose another service provider?
Copatiible Wifi Extender with the TMobile 5G Internet Gateway?
I am looking for recommendations on the best Wi-Fi extender for the 5G home Gateway. I have both a TP Link RE 220 and a Netgear EX3700. They both fail to connect due to MAC address issues… even though they work fine with my current modem/router. I am looking to move away from my Xfinity service but need a Wi-Fi extender in my garage to connect some of my outdoor enabled devices. Thanks!
With happiness, why has FTP started to work with T-Mobile home internet?
I’ve had T-Mobile home internet several months now. Having made it through several issues I’m glad I stayed with T-Mobile. Because T-Mobile maps IPV4 over IPV6, FTP did not work. To use FTP I had to subscribe to a VPN, turn it on when FTP was needed then turn off again. I’ve been using NordVPN for that. However, just now I attempted some file transfers and they worked! All my FTP logins work without using the VPN. This is wonderful.So I’m wondering if anyone knows what changed. Was it T-Mobile? Was it something else? It isn’t the FTP servers or protocols or the internet in general. I use multiple FTP servers. So it has to be T-Mobile.
Hello,This is my first post. Glad to meet everyone. I didn’t even know T-Mobile had a forum until I got the home internet and found how limited the gateways are and began searching for tips and tricks.I wanted to see if anyone had tried building their own modem. I have been running a IPFire firewall and router box for a while now since I had DSL. So why not use it for T-Mobile too? I don’t even know if it will work, but in theory I think it should. IPFire has a decent amount of options for connecting to a service.I would be using my computer that is currently running the firewall and router Adding a PCI-E M.2 adapter Attaching a 5g module to that adapter SIM card into the adapter Plug the Waveform antenna to the module Configure the “Red” adapter in IPFireIf this works, I should have no double NAT and many other features like DHCP address control, VPN, and Intrusion Prevention in one unit.It would be about $100 in parts I need to get so less than one of the pre-built 5G routers.O
IP Location issue
So apparently I cannot connect to sites that need to verify your location because my new tmobile internet service shows me as being located in a State that is different from my actual location.Been on hold for 50 mins to speak to someone, not sure if I will get anyone tonight and this is not looking good for customer service support that you don’t have a different number specifically for tech issues like this.
Has anyone had a problem with T-Mobile 5G Wifi where you have to reboot devices in order to reestablish internet connection. With my iPad I find on a regular basis that I have access to a site, exit the site and they come back shortly after to that site or another site any unable to connect. I have to reboot my iPad and they I am able to connect. I’ve also experienced on my MacBook Pro connection problems that are only resolved when I clear out my history, after which I connect without any problem.I switched several months ago from xfinity internet and never had this problem until T-mobile. My T-mobile router shows a strong Internet signal and my download/upload speeds, when connected, are more than adequate.
