Hi all - I have got X3000 router going but I’m stuck on 4G only and a lot lower speed
I’ve tried band locking etc but to no avail
Any ideas how I can back onto 5G (The router is no use to me at these low speeds !!))
I’m in the UK - on the EE - Unlimited data - I normally get 700+ Mbps on 5G but only getting 50Mbps on 4G
Please check if there are any 5G tower.
Can scan 5G tower via the follow function:
Thanks for the response
Yes I have LTE and NR5G-NSA signals available.
However if I try to connect to Band 78 it will not connect
The NSA needs LTE band to work with 5G band.So it can’t use 5G band alone.
Looking at your screen shot you ARE connected to band 78. As @lizh mentioned, NSA connections require a LTE anchor band which is b1 per your screen shot.
Thank you - I have selected the relevant LTE bands and enabled all the NSA ones and yes I am now connecting to 5G NSA - however using the same SIM in the EE router I get really high speeds (500Mbps + ) - However in the X3000 I’m only getting around 100Mbps - There must be some other setting I am missing !
Compare the 5G band in X3000 and EE router.Than lock the same band.
You have the VPN activated. If OpenVPN means max 150 Mbps. Try without.
Yes - That made all the difference - I did not know that OpenVPN had a speed cap (I do now) - I also tried Wireguard but I cannot get my static IP address to work with that - Thankls for your help - after more than a few restless night it’s going back for a refund.
