    Source? This would be a first. And an exciting one at that.

    On a side note OP, have you tried 3CA? I have a config that does 700 1800 and 2600 and it works pretty well, was able to go from 60mbit to 100mbit using a pretty ordinary antenna.

    Config for the NH? Care to share the settings you applied? Happy to test!

    This is the AT Command that I used for 3CA - these are all the bands available at my local tower:

    AT!BAND=6,"700 1800 2600",0000000000000000,0000000008000044,0000000000000000

    Replace BAND=6 with whatever number you want, as long as it isn't already taken. I just had a few configs already. It's actually pretty straightforward to "build" your own AT command, the position and value of the numbers in the middle string determines the high / low band LTE configuration of a carrier aggregation config. If you look at enough AT commands you'll be able to work out what each number and position does (even your OP you can see how it works), and there is a netgear manual that goes over a lot of the bands (I think the modem is Sierra Wireless but my memory is fuzzy).

    Let me know how you go.

    Thanks. Yeah I'd worked them out previously just wasn't sure if you could manually configure more than 2 CA. Guess that answers that!

    Cool beans. I'd be curious if you could get even more speed out of your setup. Only downside is that you have to get on the roof every time you want to test a config, lol

    The folks over at whirlpool say this is extremely unlikely, by the way.

    Hey Yoodaa, any luck with a 3CA configuration?

    Oops probably should have googled it before i bought the adapter.

    Its not a IPEX connector on the board. Turns out its a MS156 and I cant find any short ones that can fit without drilling...

    [edit] found it pretty sure its the 2mm one, my ipex mhf4 connector is about the same size

    Have you had much of a look at the NightHawk M2 for your setup at all?

    So I have no 2600 available to me unfortunately. Setting just 2600mhz and I get absolutely nothing, no connection, etc. So the tri CA is useless to me. Infact even bi CA is useless as I'm primarily using 1800mhz.

    I did just pickup a ubiquiti USG that allows load balancing however, and that means outbound, I can possibly pull more data.... I'll start testing and return the results

    2/3/4/5G is not guarranteed as a fail-over tech. Neither is NBN 4G. Please stop telling your consumers this rubbish people.

    It never, ever has been.

    it's an unreliable option at best

    why are you angry?

    my job is to make sure your local BP/Caltex/etc can do your credit card transaction when you buy fuel.

    the same network that makes this work make your home network get internet.

    I'm a patient bloke Copie.

    PM me your tale so that we don't bore the readers.


    My goal here is to assist future techies to become so, not to breed hippies

    Your original post adds nothing to the thread, and neither do any of your replies, so go take your dribble elsewhere.
