Weird router problem I couldnt find anyone else who was having.

I did not manage to find a topic about a problem like mine, so basically my LTE router (Huawei CPE-B593) I think is loosing its connection to the isp even though it has a constant 3 out of 5 bars, it's also more frequent if I play a game and use Discord. Also if I remember correctly the mode light turns red whenever it happens altough don't qoute me on that as it's been a while since I last checked it during one of the outages. I am also usually the only user on it and have tested it with multiple different cables, which made no difference whatsoever. If anyone needs more information like pictures or if I put this in the wrong part of the forum just ask/tell me. :)

If you're that far away from a service tower I wouldn't have used this method of internet. It's possible what signal you do have is being saturated while under load. Then it just crashes and reconnects. Did you ever previously have a fiber or coax connection? Is one not available?

Sadly there is no other options for internet as there are 3 others here and the adsl is way to slow. Also im only 1.61km away from the tower (according to google maps). Also thank you for helping me, I really appreciate it :).

1- Location of the router: if you live inside a building, which i presume you do and that you’re not a free spirit living under the stars, there is a considerable amount of concrete and metal bars that ruin your LTE signal. I suggest placing the router near a window facing the tower if possible.

2- Wi-Fi: are you hooked up to Wi-Fi or Ethernet in your home? Your best bet is an actual cable as the 2.4 ghz Wi-Fi spectrum tends to be crowded and that can cause issues. If you absolutely have to use Wi-Fi, are you able to get on the 5ghz band and change the channel?

 

my suggestion is almost always never to use the same device for LTE reception and Wi-Fi transmission. Grabbing a dedicated Wi-Fi spot that supports the 5ghz band, and attaching it to the LTE modem might be a good idea.

 

pictures of the setup would be nice

The darker cable is not in use at the moment, and the other cable (going to my pc) is just going about 3 meters on the floor (I have tried multiple different cables just in case) i'll also try moving it around to try and get a better connection. (It also randomly switches between 3 and 4 bars, which I just realised so i'm guessing it's on the edge between the two)
