I didn’t read all the way through this thread. I too have installed another router off of the Arcadyan gateway - so it’s essentially operating as a modem. Which is fine. However, what I haven’t seen is if there’s a reason to turn off the Wi-Fi from the Arcadyan. Does it improve performance (either general throughput or reducing Wi-Fi conflicts, or other)?

I got my T-Mobile Home Gateway Arcadyan KVD21 and was shocked to learn that there is no admin login possible via the web interface. Luckily I found https://github.com/christopherjnelson/Arcadyan-5G-Web-Admin which you can just run locally and which uses the API (basically like the phone app) to control this gateway but also allows disabling both WiFi channels.

Are you able to turn off both channels?   I can disable only one.  If I try to do a second, it never ‘takes’.   I can do the 2.4g but then the 5.0g won’t disable, and vice versa.  I can never have them both disabled at the same time. 

I connected my Apple AirPort Extreme to the T-Mobile gateway with a long ethernet (in the wall) cable, and that works perfectly. I did NOT turn off the WiFi on the gateway. I connected the AirPort to the gateway with an ethernet cable. Then I reset the AirPort. When it came back up it automatically did the setup to extend. Make sure you name the AirPort network the same name and use the same password as the gateway. No loss of speed, and now I have strong connections throughout my long house. When I’m near the gateway, that is the connection. When I’m near the AirPort, then that is the connection.

Are you still having success with the AirPort and the T-Mobile gateway?  I am debating if I should buy my own router/WiFi so I can use a VPN to change my city location so I can watch my local MLB team.

Where can I find some instruction on how to take this git and run it locally?
