Re: Home Fusion disconnects

got the disconnect just before midnight and within a couple of minutes I had internet access, but the 4G-LTE indicator on the router just kept flashing red. The HBA is `Unreachable'.

I power cycled the HBA (Cantenna) and then the HBR (Router). No change in the flashing red indicator. Issued a reboot on both the HBA and HBR.. Still no change and I did wait 15-20 minutes after the power cycle to trying rebooting. Still showing `Unreachable' to the HBA.

All this time I could still get out to the internet with no problems.

Last thing I decided to do was restore the HBR to factory settings.

Within 1 minute of doing the restore. The 4G-LTE light was flashing green and I could access the HBA and I was showing connected to 4G on the main screen. There is something definitely jacked with the software on the HBR.

What's really sad is, I have no idea who the hell `Technicolor' is in regards to being a router manufacturer. Crap is made in Vietnam.

Why wouldn't VZW go with a a Cisco, Netgear or at least one of the top 3 router manufacturers to build their equipment..

Seems like every damn company these days is cutting corners on quality..

I saw it with ViaSat with Exede, Hughesnet with HNG4, and now even with VZW with HomeFusion..

This is getting pretty bad...

Right here is the product page for the router.

yeah, well I saw that, but it's still not a well known vendor in my book for router manufacturing.. It's must only be exclusive with Verizon products.

I recall having a Technicolor dial-up modem back in the 90s.
I see they also make cable set top boxes.
They must do a lot of custom jobs the top three don't want.
