Hi all,

 

 

 

I currently have a 3g "enhanced" connection from Netspeed. They are a great friendly ISP with very cheap pricing.

 

 

 

The modem provided by them was a Huawei B315s-607 which currently runs off a 12v setup. Now the modem works for what it does, however, it lacks many advanced features for what I need. Especially a QOS system. For example, the moment anyone uploads something, it will immediately max out our connection and slow everything and everyone else connected to a halt.

 

 

 

I am looking for a modem that runs off 12vDC that would offer more advanced features and have a 3g/4g modem built in. It would also need support for an external antenna, as this is what our setup looks like:

QOS over 3G/4G?

 

 

 

I solved our issue of 'maxing out' by shifting to a 4G connection with more bandwidth.

 

We have been told Spark currently don't yet offer native QOS over 4G so I imagine Vodafone don't either.

My connection does not support 4g, however, I can still get 4g signal. I theoretically have an unlimited 3g connection.

The SIM will be TAC locked, so you will not be able to use in alternate hardware.

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I already checked this out, my ISP can shift my connection to an "unlocked" SIM so I can use my own hardware.

As you only want 3G the Mikrotik wAP LTE is probably your best bet. It does also do 4G but not 700MHz.

 

Of course learning RouterOS may be a stumbling block it really depends what your networking knowledge is like.

Maybe something like the Netgear LB series modems. Mainly because the Netgear support page says that they can do bridge mode. Then connect it to an Edge router lite for your router. The Edge router will run on any voltage between 9V and 24V, So you can power it directly from the float voltage of a lead acid battery bank.

 

The Edge router supports Fq-Codel. So that is QoS sorted. It can also run multiple DHCP servers, and do things like re route DNS packets. So you can also configure it to bypass geoblocked streaming sites. It runs a modified version of Vyatta, so you can do some powerful things with it.
