My connection has stabilized somewhat. Don’t lose Internet anymore, knock on Wood, and can live with T-Mobile. Morning downloads 100 plus, busy afternoons and evenings, 35-45 MBS. My uploads speeds have always been bad, 2-4 MBS. I’m happy for now, sure beats AT&T DSL. Good Luck..
iTinkeralot Thank you very much, bunch of great info. I did notice my N71 secondary has switched from PCI 320 to 359. I found the tower site #125290 SE of me. Have you tried external antenna? I know, I don’t want to do it either but would like to see what kind of improvement I got. Would like to try one of the new Gateways. Thanks again and I’ll keep working on it. Great support!
Hi Tinker and thanks for the reply, good information. I've been using the Nokia for about 7 months now. This is my second one with no change in performance. The unit is in a window in my garage. Best signal I can get is 2 bars but sometime will get 3 bars on the secondary which is connected to N71, PCI 320. The secondary is always on N71. The primary is connect to B2 or B66 and I get the faster uploads on B66, PCI 328. Is the different PCI numbers different towers? My computer is connected directly but the other 5 devices are via 2 or 5G. At most only 2 devices are active at one time. The system will cook along well for several weeks until I add more demand on the system. If wife is on a Fire Stick watching Paramount HD stream it works great until I connect to YouTube on the shop PC. In a few minutes it disconnects the Internet. Happens all the time. It is still connected to the tower, same signals but no Internet. Re-boot will bring it back. Of course the wife does not understand and
Same issues here. I still have a good connection with the Tower but No Internet. A power cycle on the Can will bring back the Internet. Seems to happen more often if wife is watching a movie on TV and I start surfing the Internet. This is my second Trash Can and they both had the same problem. Download vary from 120Mbs in AM to 30Mbs in the PM. Uploads have always been slow, 4Mbs if I’m connected to B66 and less than 2Mbs on B2. I’m testing a VOIP phone service and it works great but afraid to cut off land lines until this stabilizes. That being said, it’s better than DSL for sure but I wish they would get it fixed.
