Update On Grid Antenna Issue - An Apology

Click for full size
This is in reference thread - »Grid Antenna Issue - Maybe?

So I posted quite awhile back on a drastic signal degradation issue, and possible amp issue that I was speculating on. Basically the problem fixed itself, it was indeed the tower. Also, my 0.02Mbps upload issue was also the tower. I want to aplogize, especially to Max, for anyone who suggested tower issue and I doubted it.

Anyway, here is my latest signal strength above. As you can see, rocking 100%, -63dbm, usually is most steady at -67dbm. Very good signal, even at this, tower load is definatley evident. Also, I see Sprint lied about the network upgrades. The network upgrade site had 2-4 tower near me saying speed upgrade, now they are gone, and no upgrades have been made.

I should note, Verizon has 4G near me now, but I want my 50GBs, so until Sprint brings 4G near me, I am sticking around with 3G. Also, the new revision 6 Cyfre amp does wonders.

Thanks

Hi, sorry to be a little off topic, but how did you get ec/io to show up on the mbr-1000? I have 2.0 firmware, and the 760 Verizon modem, maybe it doesn't work with this modem. Glad to see your signal return, wish my ec/io was that low, mine hovers near -10 which kills my speeds, good to see you own up to mistakes to.

Yeah, it takes guts, integrity and - most rare of all these days - humility to post an apology, and I respect you for it. You're alright, Dex...

Hey when I first had my Cradlepoint MBR1200 and UML290 setup I was pulling my hair out after a week when I had a lot of disconnect problems and dropped connections. I called Cradlepoint and they informed me there was a known issue with the 4G VZW network (after I had checked/doublecheck everything..). So I learned early on that some issues occur on the providers network ! But we usually (engineers suspect the equiptment with recent hardware or config changes.

I have no problem with owning up, I was just so frustrated that after everything I tried nothing worked. I think the issue was one of the panels on the tower goes down or has issues, the panel that aims down my valley, because if I went 2 miles down my valley the issue was not there, must be a different panel there.

Wow if I remember correctly I thought they must have re aimed a panel . Turns out the panel was bad . Glad to know I do know my stuff . Glad your issues are resolved.

Yes, you do know your stuff. I still I wish I could find my tower, so I could call it in when it has issues.

This is a good question... My mbr-1000 never showed the Ec/IO either :-/
