Re: I have a Huawei B818 modem that daily looses connection to the network

Have same problem. Why does it not reconnect like a mobile phone. That does require a switch off and on.

Re: I have a Huawei B818 modem that daily looses connection to the network

I have found by setting "Mobile Network Searching" to 4G only and in "Network Settings" turn off Auto Select Network. My B818 stays connected. I reside in a 4G area.

What about the network search mode - is that on auto or manual?

Re: I have a Huawei B818 modem that daily looses connection to the network

Ok I lost my post again...

I went through such hassle to exchange my mobile wifi and been hours on the phone with Optus tech support (useless) ... and it still dropped out this morning. 

So to summarize, are the following settings correct?

AND switching off the "auto-select network"

If you live in 4G area, also change Auto in "Network Search Mode" to 4G.

Thanks, there is only "Manual" and "Auto" option under the Network Search Mode.

 

Which one do I choose?

The 2 settings you have to change are:-  

Network settings - Internet connection - Auto-Select Network - Turn Off.

Mobile Network Searching - Preferred Network Mode - Select - 4G only.
