Hi anyone had experience changing the inbuilt modem in the wAP LTE kit or the Audience LTE6 kit neither support B28!!!! - Got a project in the countryside but without B28 support I am not going to get very far!

I've never actually bothered opening one up... but I assume the LTE is just standard mini-PCIe? Then it would just be uFL connectors for the antenna?


I do know that you just have to undo one screw at the base and then the board slides out of the case.


Edit: just pick a card that Mikrotik supports obviously.

Yes, I've done it with a Seirra Wireless card and the big no-modem Mikrotik antenna kit. I have not installed long-term yet.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

what model card did you use? and where did you buy it from?

 

I am dumbfounded that the kits are sold in NZ with no B28 support

I've used a Quectel EC25-AU.

Also it looks as though there is some new MikroTik hardware on the horizon with B28 support.
