  1. Does anyone here use the Harmony remote and Hub? I have major issues with the hub and connecting to internet via a netgear R9000 router (which is the Nighthawk branded router)... Something about AP isolation I think? I was unable to get internet on the harmony hub, but it DID successfully connect to the SSID. Just wouldn't talk to internet. I tried putting the Harmony hub in the DMZ on the router..still no internet. I wound up using an E2500 (linksys) that I have laying around as a spare SSID..the router is used for my Ubuntu box that I run PopcornOS on. The only thing on that SSID is the Harmony hub and the Roku now..because I couldn't set-up the Roku when it was on a different SSID from the Harmony. The E2500 is running AdvancedTomato..but the Netgear Nighthawk is running stock Netgear.
  2. Long time since I've been active, but I'm still kicking. Got some fiber interwebs now and I spend lots of time in front of my PC so I'll likely see everyone around sooner or later.

  3. Mostly unrelated, but somewhat related... https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/dish-lends-spectrum-to-at-t-during-covid-19-pandemic But, related to T-mo: https://www.fiercewireless.com/operators/dish-lets-t-mobile-tap-its-600-mhz-spectrum-response-to-covid-19
  4. I am not happy with my experience with them. I had them for a few months...then I got my fiber and dumped them.
  5. New security update. Made changes I don't like to the message app (dark mode is gone???) Anyone find dark mode let me know..
  6. Or if not a field test, you're in an area that has been Magic Box capable since it's inception...and suddenly, a closer look at the map is warranted because I'm a mile from the "line" and I can no longer use the magic box...so I must send the 2 I'm using, plus a family member that I referred to get one also must send theirs back. I'm still trying to use the Airave 3 LTE which works fine for a data connection...but does nothing for voice. Wifi calling can sometimes be a joke (fiber 150mbps down, 150mbps up).. I've been overly frustrated with Sprint this past 8 months or so... and mainly because the magic box was working fine for us..then suddenly they realized we are going to cause a huge FCC ruckus here in bumfuct Alabama...a little area with a pop of 5k and no traffic lights... So off with the MB..and back to Sprint they must be sent.
  7. Good!! I can't wait until my router arrives that is wifi 6...I'm not sure on the exact date, but should be the next week or so. I'll be getting a sneak-peak at one of the first consumer-grade routers certified for wifi 6 and also mesh wifi from a well-known company in networking equipment. The only thing I questioned on the specs that we were disclosed about was the requirement of internet speed to be AT LEAST 50mbps in order to function properly. I actually received an email from the person managing the trial that asked specifically for my internet speed, and that I needed to have at least 50mbps for this router to perform properly. Most recent speed test gave me 128mbps down, 141mbps up...so I might be ok.
  8. I hope I'm correct in my thinking that the note 10 is wifi 6 capable... Anyone using wifi 6 yet and know for sure?
  9. I don't understand why my note 10 doesn't do volte on b41 from the airwaveLTE
  10. Why does the note 10 and note 9 see the airwave lte as roaming... but the signal check app says I'm on b41. Does the lte LTE airwave not do cdma voice?
  11. You might want to look over my posts in the last month or 2...I've had to deal with the exact same thing. Chances are, you're in the same type of area that I am in...where they allowed MB to work, then discovered they didn't have the proper licensing for it to operate. I'd be ready to get some return boxes ...they are probably gonna want you to send the MB units back. I just got the S1000 femtocell yesterday...I vowed after the Airvana 2.5 that I wouldn't have another femtocell (charged for data from ISP, just to use that same data on my phone and get charged again)...but with unlimited it doesn't matter much. I only agreed to use an LTE femtocell because I'm having fiber 100/100 installed in about a month when it becomes available to us. On my old DSL, not an option at 6meg down, 0.5meg up. Not very happy with that licensing crap...I was under the impression that Sprint had the B41 spectrum by the reigns for the most part. But apparently i'm in one of those areas where they don't.
  12. It's all over now but the crying. I had the flu last week...but during that time, I found out from George Schnelbacher via email that I'm in a "bermunda triangle" per se... Inside the outlined area below is where (I'm guessing) B41 can't be broadcast by Sprint due to licensing ... I"m not understanding this from the license perspective..maybe someone can divulge what the restraints are for this particular area... and why is it off in the middle of bum$$ck Alabama, no where NEAR a major metro area...but splits an area across 2 counties. Makes absolutely NO sense to me.
