Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

Recommended Posts

Wonder if I'll be able to return my 2.5 + Airave for this new LTE version? https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/631442/connecting_google_pixel_to_airave/?st=j12dpzpa&sh=47e0f82a

I'm sure you'll be able to.

 

Shoutout to Tim for confirming the LTE airave release will be later this month!

Wonder how easy it would be to get one, and if it is something Sprint would want as many possible to have.

When I got mine years ago it was a 20 minute phone call to get it ordered but I had tons of dropped calls in my house that they were able to look up. I was averaging around 20 dropped calls a month.

I essentially gave up on Airave - not reliable at all, at least in my home here in the NW Chicago suburbs. Voice quality is hideous, and the initial connectivity is iffy, and equipment reliability is terrible, my now inactive unit is #3 after about 3+ years.

 

Its so bad for me (may be better in your area, YMMV), I use my Project Fi phone for calls, force switch to T-Mobile. Its not a perfect solution, but VoLTE is leagues better than Sprint's 1xRTT (or for that matter, T-Mobile's WCDMA)

 

I might have to reinstate my landline...

Anyone ever have issues with their Airave 2.5 being online with all green lights, phone connected to it, but unable to place any calls? I've rebooted my router, Airave, and phone.. nothing helps. Internet is working fine. When I try to place a call, I get the three beeps but then 20-30 seconds of silence and it disconnects.

I've had that issue happen before, but very rarely.  Never anything that persisted over a long period of time anyway.   Usually when I'm in the basement too (router/Airrave is on first/entry floor of townhome)

My Airave is still malfunctioning.. I can send and receive calls, and the person on the other end can hear me fine -- but I can't hear them at all. I don't even hear the ringing tone. I've been working with Sprint over the past few days, and they have escalated my ticket through several tiers, but nobody can solve it. Now apparently Airvana is looking into it. Today they determined that my "MOS scores" are very low--averaging 2.3 out of 5. But when I do tests over the web, all the stats are good scores are significantly higher. Going to reach out to my ISP but I'm guessing they will lean on my web tests showing their network isn't the issue.

 

I've tried asking if this will help me get an Airave 3 any faster, but nobody would bite. ;)

 

The most annoying (amusing?) part of all this is that I have to walk down the street to talk to them, so I can leave the Airave online for testing but still communicate. I think it's all a conspiracy to get me to pay for a landline..

When I still had an Airave, I would use Google Voice integration over Wi-Fi to call support. Think I was using PBXes.org as an SIP gateway at that time, but Hangouts Dialer works today.

I'll update when I hear more, maybe it will help you. Right now they're thinking it's the quality of my Fios service, but all the VOIP test sites I can find give my connection great ratings.

Well after more testing and escalation, Sprint declared my problem to be a "known issue" with the Airave 2.5 and the only solution is to replace it.. which they can't do, because they don't have any in stock and don't know when they are getting more (2.5 or 3). Apparently nobody can pre-order/back-order either one either, so I need to proactively call back every few weeks to see if anything has become available.

 

Seems very odd that they don't at least have a waitlist for those who need to swap out a defective one, but perhaps the transition from the 2.5 to the 3 is complicating things. Sprint still hasn't enabled Wi-Fi Calling that on the Pixel yet either so I'm just going to have to be patient.

Hummm....so I sort of ran into the same problem yesterday...

 

Unfortunately my beloved Nexus 6 "bit the dust" so Asuron shipped me a Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

 

While it is working fine now, yesterday was a difficult story...

 

So while I was on the phone with Tech Support about my issues receiving calls on my new Samsung Galaxy Note 5, I happened to mention that I wanted an upgraded Airave, and I was told twice that I wasn't eligible and then I was told that I had the wrong department.

 

So your 'mikejeep'...what you said seems to be a good explanation as to the reason I seemed to have been stonewalled.

 

Since this Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has Wi-Fi Calling, I may not need the Airave, but if it turns out that I do, I'll take your advice and wait a bit before I ask again.

I recently had a executive at sprint working on my account cause of some billing issues. After being able to resolve that issue, I had asked her about the airave 3. I wanted to know if i could get the 2.5 plus model switched out and she had told me that she couldn't order any some with the magic box and they wasn't shipping them out until next year. So I had gotten ahold of sprint through twitter, asking about the airave 3 and switching them out. Moments later I had a phone call from another sprint executive asking about the old 2.5 plus model. I just told her it didn't like to play friendly with any of the phones me or my family and friends had. She tried to sell me on the magic box which I would have liked, but had gotten denied for cause of the coverage. So she ordered me a return kit to ship back the old one, and ordered the new airave 3. still haven't gotten the return kit but the new airave came earlier which surprised me. Everything but the LTE light is green and solid the LTE light will connect and then start blinking again. So i'm going to leave it go all night and see what happens in the morning.

Just curious, when did you place that order for the Airave 3?

Does the LTE light stay red and then blink again? I have been having this issue with my dad's Airave 3 for a few weeks now. They swapped it out once and the new unit is doing the same thing. I really think this is more of a backend issue than the devices.

I do think that it is it is odd that not only was I turned down for the Magic Box, but apparently I am also not eligible for the new version of the Airwave.

 

Since my new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 does have WiFi Calling, it is not that urgent for me to get the new Airwave, so I will wait for a bit and push the Sprint Reps more the next time I call.

Yea the LTE will stay red, then start blinking again. It has connected but maybe for 10 mins and then goes back to blinking. So i actually just unplugged it. might mess with it more tomorrow when im off work.

I called today about the airave 3. They said they're 4000 units backordered and the system won't let them put in more until mid September or so.

      I'm stuck having to use an Airave in my apartment because ever since my landlord moved in downstairs and did major renovations, we've not been able to get much if any Sprint signal up here. I hate it because it's 3G only. Is there any chance Sprint will get it together and offer an LTE Airave? I'm guessing not, but it would be cool if they did.

      Hey all cant find anything searching the Forums. So I am wondering if someone can help me out here.
       
      I currently have a Belkin N750 DB Wifi Dual Band N+ Gigabit Router and an Airave unit. Both units are right next to each other.
       
      My home is about 1500sf ft.
       
      Using both bands on the router; 2.5ghz and 5ghz.
       
      Since PCS is at 1900 I am correct to assume this is close to 2.5gbs aka 2500?
       
      During they day my wireless signal drops to just about nothing that is usable by my TIVO, Note2, Sony 3100 BluRay Player or Wii etc etc etc.
       
      How likelly is it that the 2 units are severely interfering with each other?
       
      What distance should I place one from the other?
       
      Thanks for the feedback.

      Hello all, I have a question about my sprint airave. The closest tower to my house is approximately 4 miles away if I'm correct. So what I'm wondering is when this tower is eventually upgraded to 4G, will my phone be able to connect to it? Or will my airave being a stronger signal override the 4G signal?
      Side question: are 4G signals stronger or weaker than 3G signals necessarily? Thanks for any insight you guys can supply

      So as we all know Sprint offers the Airave devices to help in-home coverage issues. It requires a high-speed Internet connection and creates a miniature cell site inside your home (femtocell).
       
      Sprint has offered these for free or deeply discounted for quite a while to customers with little to no coverage in their home. The requirements for determining eligibility have changed according to what I've heard. There hasn't been an official communication to retail employees as we don't deal with Airaves directly, so do take it with a grain of salt, and remember it can change again at any time.
       
      This information comes from a conversation with a member on the Airave team that determines customer eligibility to assist our store in providing accurate information to our customers that we refer to their team for coverage issues.
       


      To be eligible for a FREE Airave, the account must have 4+ active lines.
       
      Otherwise, the account is eligible for purchasing the Airave at full retail price ($280), or with a 2-year contract commitment for a discounted price ($130).
       

      My assumption is that since Network Vision is ramping up to full speed and should be completed within the next year or so, the increase in coverage availability from the 800MHz deployment and enhanced capability of the new equipment in general is anticipated to remove the need for Airave devices for most customers.

      Hello, just letting you guys know that I did my reset for my airave today and it is using a different set of channels for zip 15235 in Pittsburgh, PA.  Before, it used 75 and 225, and after the reset it now uses 100 and 150.  This may be a response to the users who have had issues with the NV upgrade locally affecting the airave.  Reset yours today and find out!
