    also your stay wires should be on the high areas not valleys. Make sure its very well sealed id even look at stainless. With out being rude thee is a reason roof installers screw on the high parts.

    But seeing what you have done im sure u can rig something up or monitor it.

    Yeah I thought I had mounted into high areas not valleys of colour bond otherwise you have major water issues. Did pics show otherwise? Got a spare NH already, and I don't think removing case will help much after pulling one apart. Case is basically needed for lcd etc. Plus without battery the back of the pcb is exposed anyway under the stickers as she's already cooler

    Yea mate 1 pic did.

    To easy Maybee drill the case out abit more even if it’s not for cooling I’d be afraid it will insulate.

    Now you got it down pat I guess u just watch for improved hardware or similar.

    I am here as a result of seeing your link in the Whirlpool thread. I too am chasing a reasonable 4G speed.

    My step 2 used a different method. I went to http://web.acma.gov.au/pls/radcom/site_proximity.main_page

    When you enter your address a location marker will appear - it can be dragged to another location if desired - as well as transmitter sites. These are not labelled so a bit of trial and error is required to find the correct tower(s). Maybe visit oztowers first to locate the towers.

    If a site is clicked a pop-up window will appear giving a lot of information.
    At the bottom of this window is [Elevation Profile]. Clicking this will produce a profile from the tower to your location.

    I usually use the ACMA site too, it's a fantastic tool. It's got the details for every transmitter license, often a viewshed estimator, and for a lot of the transmitters I've been interested in it even had radiated power pattern estimates

    how'd you get a non-selected device to work again?
    I recently purchased the 500GB plan with the B525, and although it's the fastest internet we've ever had (80D 30U), it's the f**king flakiest - the internet has dropped out like.. 30 times, that's no exaggeration. I'm so f**king sick of pointless restrictions! JUST LET US USE A MODEM OF OUR CHOICE FFS
    I've done a sim swap, no change, Monday I ring again and complain..again
    I can induce/repeat a drop-out at will - just pile up 2-3 downloads, and bye-bye internet!

    the problem is optus. go to another provider that is likely more expensive and get better service ...

    IIRC the OP is using what Optus call Mobile Broadband, not their Wireless Broadband product. Even though they're both LTE data services, it's a bit of artificial product segmentation. Mobile telco marketing people will amongst the first against the wall, come the revolution.

    NBN fibre helps us grow.


    Telstra CAN network is the old legacy story that is taught to *some* kids.


    It's just a story now.

    I deal with 100,000+ remotely read sites daily (across all of Australia).
    Big T has the best performance vs Optus and/or Voda
    Regardless of the retail and consumer facing parts of their business, they have the better performing network.

    And side note for ae00711 your abusive PM made me laugh. Did the bad internet man make you cry ?
