GL-AR750S bypass Verizon throttle by changing TTL

So im trying to help a friend who lives in a rural area that has good cell signal, but zero options for fast internet. He’s wanting to provide internet for his kids and to be able to stream Netflix.

He has a GL-AR750S Router and using his Verizon phone to tether his mobile data (unlimited). He wants to bypass his hotspot data limit of 15gbs.

I’ve tried two different sets of code that I’ve found among other forums (Here & Reddit). While the internet works, and speed is great, the code has not prevented Verizon from tracking his mobile hotspot data.

I added the following code to the firewall custom rules, and reset firewall & rebooted the router.

Attempt #1:
“iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING 1 -j TTL --ttl-set 65”

Then I tried this…

Attempt #2:
#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o usb0 -j TTL --ttl-set 65
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i usb0 -j TTL --ttl-set 65
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o usb0 -j HL --hl-set 65
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i usb0 -j HL --hl-set 65
#end TTL rules”

Could using a VPN make it work? Can someone please help us out, im lost at this point.

Thanks in advance.

If you tethering your phone’s data, seems that the carrier knows that. So it does not matter what you do on the router.

Easytethering is developed for this purpose. But it should be a paid app.
