Airave and Wireless Router Interference

Recommended Posts

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.

1st thing is that your wireless router runs on 2.4 and not 2.5. 2.4 is and open frequency. Cordless phones, wireless cameras, and wireless home security systems usually cause the problems. If you have none of these then he issues of dropped wireless seem more like a firmware update. If you have never done a firmware update and need some help just let us know.


Good luck

      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.

      Came across a youtube video of a wireless device dated from 1922 on British Pathe

      If SoftBank/Sprint were to expand into Canada and Mexico, and offer Unlimited Roaming Data, with a an industry first Transnational voice+text+data Plan, wouldn't that be the most amazing thing ever?
      What would those specifics be? Isn't there still a CDMA1x network still in operation in Canada? Couldn't Sprint buy out that network?

      And in Mexico, a CDMA1x/EV-DO carrier is still active, with an iDEN network as well...
      The 2.5Ghz frequency is has been open for business in Mexico for quite some time... Will Sprint buy that too? It it available for telecom use in Canada?
      My post is not well thought out. I don't want to take the time to research compatible frequencies.
      So help me out. I have the idea, now as a community, help build out this transnational vision!

    • I just had to renew my Sprint Corporate discount last week. 
    • You do know that T-Mobile makes money with the Tuesday app right? T-Mobile makes money when you use it for any 'free' items.
    • Not necessarily. Depends who bids for it, how much they get and what they have to pay for it. Had the merger not occurred (with Masa failing to infuse any cash into the business), Sprint would be in an even worse position as T-Mobile could have picked some up, unless AT&T or Verizon grabbed it all. Sprint was already circling the drain. This would have finished them off in my opinion. Sprint didn't have the money for lowband, and it wouldn't have had the money for this spectrum either. The efficiencies realized through merger synergies should allow T-Mobile to pick up some if it wanted to.
    • And there goes T-Mobile spectrum advantage between that, CBRS and C-Band. 
    • Personally I'd keep the Airave 4.  All the femtos are the same when it comes to VoLTE. Your resets are definitely delaying it getting reactivated. I know it sucks, but you just have to leave it be for 3 weeks. Eventually VoLTE will get turned back on.   If your S10s are on Sprint (check the PLMN in the engineering screen, or use an app like Signal Check Pro), then they will eventually find the Airave again. The network completely controls what your phone connects to, unless you lose service completely. You will not end up on the Airave unless the network tells your phone to connect to it. Usually it takes up to a few weeks for the Airave to get integrated into the network and for the towers around you to know about it. Once they do, they'll allow handoffs and will move your phone to it when it's in range.   As to why the other phones see it and connect, there are a number of possible reasons. One of which is because it doesn't have VoLTE enabled (I've found that devices that use VoLTE will avoid moving to something that doesn't have VoLTE enabled). But basically it will be inconsistent until the network has integrated it. Every time you factory reset (ie, the PCI changes), it wipes this and has to start over again with integration.
