5g home internet - some sites won't load
My big gray cylinder 5G Home internet has good signal and works reliably. But some percent of websites I visit simply refuse to load via the TMo 5g device, yet they work fine if I use my Verizon cellphone data, or a coaxial cable modem (which I have not canceled service on yet). I am guessing it’s either a DNS issue between my Mac and the T-Mobile cylinder (eg: settings requiring technical help or updates), or a problem in the T-Mo network that is blocking some sites. After spending too many hours on the phone already with Tmo tech support for 5G Home, I am not excited about the prospect of engaging on the phone again. It takes too long, and the agents need more training and support. Has anyone experienced and solved this issue? Do you have technical insights? Is there actual written documentation somewhere that I could access? Thank you. (Honestly Tmo, you need to rethink your support infrastructure for 5G Home.)

PSA for anyone unable to register T-Mobile ID for home internet: quick fix that support is not aware of
After going through several useless support specialists none were able to help me. However, the after seeing a suggestion from another user to capitalize he first letter of your email address worked. There is a major bug in their system that is not registering emails when the first letter is lowercase. Use this link to set up your ID, make sure its the sign up page that asks for the phone number associated with the account - the home internet sign up page will not work at all. https://account.t-mobile.com/signin/v2/enterPhoneNumber?redirect_uri=https:%2F%2Fwww.t-mobile.com%2Fsignin&scope=TMO_ID_profile%20associated_lines%20billing_information%20associated_billing_accounts%20extended_lines%20token%20openid%20vault%20role%20consent&client_id=MYTMO&access_type=ONLINE&response_type=code&approval_prompt=auto&prompt=select_account&state=eyJpbnRlbnQiOiJMb2dpbiIsImJvb2ttYXJrVXJsIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly93d3cudC1tb2JpbGUuY29tL2FjY291bnQvZGFzaGJvYXJkIn0&loginId=&fp_clien
I recently upgraded from the silver Gateway to the new black one. The black one is an Arcadia KVD 21. You can find that information on the back of the black Gateway. I was able to reconnect all my alexa's, all my smart plugs, my blink security system, my ring doorbell, and my wireless printer. My Aladdin connect, garage door opener would not connect. After spending 3 days trying to get it to connect I finally reached someone at Genie Door Company, the manufacturer of Aladdin connect. They tell me that Aladdin connect will not work with the new T-Mobile Gateway model KVD 21. Anyone else had this problem?
How to handle lack of WPS button on new Home Internet Router
Hi, I got the new Home Internet Cylinder router. Pretty simple setup but the speeds are good and the price is right. I have a few devices I have always used WPS to connect. Some extenders and some indoor cameras. Can’t figure out how to do it now. I do not see a WPS button.Am I missing something? The interface is so simple but maybe it will get better with time.Thanks
on and off
I don’t understand I’ve had T-Mobile internet for almost 2 years now but lately I’m having nothing with problems. Sometimes it’ll work perfect and then out of nowhere it acts nutty and won’t play or stream anything on any of my devices. It won’t even work my phones. What am I doing wrong? Please help!
VPN Issue on Sagemcom Fast 5688W Gateway
I found a lot of complains about the Sagemcom Fast 5688W Gateway with VPN. I have the same problem. My firmware version is SGJi10202-1.2.74.VPN does not work from my Windows PC, but it works with my iPhone and iPad!!!I found out that it could have something to do with the MTU packet size. This MTU value can be changed under Windows. Until now I didn’t have time to dig into this. Does anyone know how to do it and tested this?The firmware of the Sagemcom Fast 5688W Gateway is absolutely poor. I think everyone should contact T-Mobile and complain about this firmware. T-Mobile needs more pressure to enhance this black box.
Error Codes Wan005 and Wan002
Does anyone else using the T mobile Home Internet model KVD21 have this happen to them? My internet worked great for the first month, and about 2 days ago or so the internet just drops randomly and won't reconnect and will give me error codes Wan005 and Wan002 until I factory reset it. Turning it off and on again multiple times doesn't fix the error either. And when I do factory reset it, whenever it goes to reboot it gets stuck in a cycle where it keeps restarting over and over until randomly it finally reboots after unplugging and plugging it back in multiple times. This is super frustrating as you could probably imagine and I have no idea why out of nowhere it started doing this. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, if it continues I guess I will try to see about getting a replacement unit. Thanks for any input or thoughts on what could be the issue!
What happened to 360 protection?
I’ve been using 360 protection since it came out, replaced many damaged phones, 100 dollars, new one in mail. I’ve just upgraded to a Samsung S23 Ultra, which by the way has the cheapest glass, no wonder they did free upgrades. The screen cracked in my pocket, and T-Mobile wants me to go to a store, that’s an hour away, in a bad neighborhood. Now I’m forced to break the phone in pieces so I can do a claim on the whole phone, still will come out cheaper than traveling over an hour, using up a half day, getting robbed, commuting costs, etc. Are T-Mobile Reps not good enough to replace glass? T-Mobile only has 3 locations in a city of more than 7 million people? Plus, those replacement glass they put on in the stores are even 1000 times cheaper than factory, you can tell every single time, and how it cracks again. Now where’s my hammer so I can get this claim done quickest way. Thank you for listening to my rant.
T Mobile Home Internet & Google Home & Alexa
Help. I am battling to connect either Google Home Speaker or Alexa (Echo) speaker to T Mobile Home Internet. I have reset the devices but nothing. Both try to connect but can’t finalize the instal and can’t finalize setup connection. Any ideas please.Also...how many devices can you add to home internet. I have the high speed internet gateway (grey tower). I have read conflicting numbers. 10 or 20 (10 on 5g 10 on 2.4g) or 64.
smart tv connection to tmobile home internet
Tmobile home internet can't connect to my roku tv. It's visible. But it won't let me connect. I tried my new password, the admin password, and the wifi key. None of them work. When I turn my S21 ultra into a hotspot, that seems to connect just fine to my tv.
How to Determine Data Use by Device
How do I find out how much data each connected device on my home wifi is using? The app only shows devices connected with no names just numbers and it doesn't shout the data usage. The T-Mobile app shows the total usage for my home wifi router but not which devices are using the data. Something is using up my data and I can't figure out what
Very slow home internet download speed
January 17 was my one-year anniversary as a T-Mobile Home Internet customer. I wish the story could be all good news but unfortunately that is not the case.I received the Nokia 5G21 gateway on 01-17-2022. Installed it and had it receiving internet data without any problems. I was slightly disappointed with the download speeds for the first few days that were 40Mbps. But after over twenty years with 6Mbps DSL, 40 was an improvement at over six times faster.Five days later, on January 22 the download speeds increased dramatically and ranged from the low 200’s to the upper 300’s, needless to say I was more than happy.The speeds stated above and in the following paragraphs were acquired with the latest version of Ookla Speedtest on a quad core PC running Windows 10 connected to the Nokia gateway via Ethernet cable.Everything stayed in the happy range until late September early October. A test on October 2 at 12:41pm returned a download speed of 15.6 Mbps, a speed I had never seen any time
Endless Voicemail Notification
This was never an issue when I was with sprint and is unique only to T mobile. From my research, this has been a common problem for over 2 years that T mobile won't fix. Everyday, I get at least 40 voicemail notifications from (805) 637-7243 which is 805-MESSAGE. You clear the notification, it pops up again 10 secs later, and again, and again, then goes quiet for about 5 minutes. Then the process restarts. T-Mobile doesn't allow you to turn off the notification and only gives you the option to silence it for about 2 hours. This is harassment at this point and I wish Sprint never switched to T Mobile.
