  1. So following some advice earlier this week here I bought an LTE modem, which works great, and I also bought and setup a PFsense router. Currently it is setup as poorly drawn here: Internet works through pfsense device using either internet point and I have experimented with things such as creating a gateway with equal tiers between the 2 devices, or one with a higher tier than the other etc it all functions as expected like that. What I would like is for data such as video (youtube/netflix/amazon) to travel through the wider connection (WISP) and for gaming traffic to travel along the lower latency line. What I believe is the best solution is to make the gateway tier 1 with LTE and tier 2 with WISP, but take a list of ports&protocols and create firewall rules to direct traffic from youtube/video sites to the WISP. The problem is I can't figure out how to setup these firewall rules to do this. Anyone able to help or suggest a better solution, I can't seem to find an example of someone doing anything similar. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the responses. I did buy the Pepwave LTE router as, this is not the first I've heard they are good in reviews. Once I get the service working I will likely purchase one of those prebuilt machines on amazon: Firewall Appliance, as they appear to be essentially designed for this purpose. I will let you know how it all works!
  3. Hey there, I live in the midwest in the country and receive internet through a local 'WISP' at 25mbp/3mpbs. The speed is fine when it works but lately the connection has been dropping all too frequently and no amount of calling and complaining will correct the problem. I would like to buy some hardware and a 2nd connection through LTE over AT&T's network (closest tower). I have read a few similar posts, but usually people are looking for greater bandwidth, my greatest concern is creating a stable connection as we play online games and connection drops can be quite frustrating. I'm looking for recommendations on a few things: Experience with an LTE service provider such as this? There are many options online, but most are atleast a bit shady, I likely will not use more than 25 GB of data over this connection. A good LTE modem with the option for an external antenna if necessary. Some device to join this connection with my other connection and perhaps create one more robust network. Most traffic would need to go to the other connection as I am using about 450GB of data monthly and no unlimited LTE plan would likely accept that. I do own a Nighthawk xr500 router, which I have been happy with, I'd like to continue to use that for WIFI Purposes, but if that is not practical I can get something new. Budget is flexible, but 100/month for the 2nd connection, and maybe 500$ for new equipment is ideal? Thanks.
