wimax keeps disconnecting

Honestly, here in Atlanta with my Sprint GS2, I've been having trouble with Wimax the past two days as well. My first, knee-jerk reaction thought was that they were decommissioning wimax sites. But, as Sprint has an agreement with Clearwire to keep them going through...what was it..2014? 2015?...then I know it can't be that. But interesting that in wildly differing parts of the country we are experiencing similar issues.

No idea. I turn it on and i wont even move, it wont try to reconnect after it loses wimax. I leave it alone for a long time to see if it would try and connect but it never does.. I have to turn it off then turn it back on or re-scan and then it connects.. LTE really needs to get into gear!

I have to keep searching for the signal every few minuts. Is there a way to make the phone connect to it automaticly?? Its real a pain and I don't even want to bother with it..

 

Well theres always this to make it rescan faster and more often

 

NOTE: This is for the original Epic 4G only, there are other guides for other phones (I adapted one for the NS4G).

 

Want Faster Speeds?? This hack can double your 4g speeds and increase your connectivity by a great factor!!

 

You will need your MSL, Call Sprint or follow this:

1. Dial ##3282#

2. It will open a menu, click WiMAX and enter MSL. Note: 4G radio must be on.

3. Go to extensions and Hold EntryRX and Write Extension

4. Change the Value from -89 to -110 (The Lower the weaker the signal can be for the phone to connect.)

5. Change EntryCINR to 0004

—————————————————————————

If you are tired of the Radio taking forever to reconnect once you loose your 4G signal, then:

1. Change Scan Retries to 00015

2. Change Scan attempt timeout to 0002

 

You will now have a somewhat faster and much stronger 4G signal!!!

EDIT: Easier Way to get MSL. Okay so you have to download connectbot from the Market

1. Open ConnectBot

2. Agree Next Next Yada Yada

3. Press SSH and select Local

4. type in whatever you want by local and press enter

5. ok once you see a black screen and to the left a cash sign, type in “getprop” without the quotes

6. You should see a lot of words, scroll up all the way at the top.

7. Near the middle of the screen until you see [ril.MSL]

8. It will be 6 digits and that’s your MSL

It brings me to a screen that says enter MSL and what ever it put in it says invalid lock code so im stuck in that part.

Did you get your MSL? (look at bottom edit for how)

I have looked up and down that screen a few times. Is i called anything else other then [ril.MSL]?

 

If you didn't see it there you may have to use CDMA workshop to get it, which is a total PITA.

 

Try some of the get my MSL apps on the android market and see if they work.

Ok, i got one of the "get my MSL" apps and it worked . I set the new values. Will this also work with EVDO and LTE?

I did this when I had my Nexus S 4G and it did help alot. At the office I was getting disconnected, updated to -110 and bam no more disconnects!

    • I was down in southern TN last week when the update hit and then noticed that all of a sudden when my brother and I drove back down to Huntsville - knew I'd never seen the UC addendum before, now I know why.
    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use.
