Re: Huawei B818 - DO NOT update to latest firmware 10.0.5.2!!

Hi Dev66. Are you in direct line of sight to the tower for your 5G modem? I was considering upgrading but I read that line of site is important for good performance. I am 132m from the tower but obstructed by a building.

Thanks @Casey_YC . Cheeky I know, but a bit frustrating when we are trying to help each other.

Hi @Dev66 You may be interested in this "Archer D9 - TP-Link Wireless Dual band ADSL2 Modem Router" modem I have on Gumtree.

Ad ID is *****

I give up. No idea. This is simply a Gumtree ad number. That keeps getting starred out

Re: Huawei B818 - DO NOT update to latest firmware 10.0.5.2!!

Sorry, had people over today and they brought a Penfolds 389, a st Hugo's, a Moss Wood Cab Sav and a Merrill Reserve Shiraz. Obviously I didn't check back here for quite a few hours! So I've just seen the asterisked messages.

How about this. My username on whirlpool is at: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/user/358196 if this current message stays up you could pm me there if you also have a whirlpool account. I could then coordinate the modem being passed around between us and anyone else from there and just report results back here.

My 5G works great. Download I now get somewhere between 200 and 300mbps off peak and 100mbps peak and 20 to 30mbps upload anytime. The tower is 1.9 km from my house. I can't see it, there are trees in the way as I live on acreage. There aren't any building around me, but plenty of trees. Apparently, I'm not in a 5G area as my address is too far away, but the actual house is no where near the street address and everything works great.

Best,

Dev

OK, @digitizernz1 doesn't need my unit now (got to test with another unit this evening), but the offer is still there for anyone else? Just let me know.
