Glad to hear. Any smart home devices, specifically doorbell camera / security cameras? I can't get them to connect!Just disconnected the Cox modem, taking it back tomorrow. Very happy with the T-Mobile service.
T-Mobile Home InternetWe've been having some intermittent issues with Cox for about 2 months now, swapped our owned modem and router for a rented one from them about a month ago and finally had a service call yesterday after it was out most of the day Wednesday. Tech claims it's the interior coax, I find that hard to...bobistheoilguy.com
It might be easier to just plug your old router into the T-Mobile one if it has an ethernet port. Then everything will still connect.We are on day 1 of trialing T-Mobiles 5G home internet. I am still trying to set up our Nest Cam's with the new wifi. No luck. Other than that so far, so good. Have any of you had this service "long term" and stuck with it?
Can you separate the 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz wifi bands? You’d just have to name them something different, like “gregk24” and “gregk24-5G” or something like that. I’ve had devices that don’t like them being named the same exact thing and would refuse to even show the network until I did that.
I went in and split up the 2.4/5. Still no luck on either.There are two models of the T-Mobile gateways, a rectangular black Samsung and a gray Nokia cylinder. I have the Nokia and it won't split between 2.4/5, it does that automagically. In the past I would rename the network the same as old with the same password and everything would just reconnect, but since I was experimenting I went with a new network name and manually signed everything back in. I didn't have any issues, but wow you forget how many networked devices you have! Everything signed in without issue including the Ring doorbell, garage door opener, thermostat, cheap-o ion camera, Alexa, TVs and streaming devices and of course all the phones and computers.
In the past the thermostat was always my biggest challenge but it signed in just fine...apparently Honeywell thermostats are picky about the password you use.
What model modem/router do you have?I went in and split up the 2.4/5. Still no luck on either.
Having these problems, I suspect T-Mobile isnt going to work for you long term unless you are going to put up with it.We started having problems with the signal dropping, and the only way to reconnect was to reset the device. They sent us a new one and we have only had to reset this one twice. Not sure what the root problem is.
Thank you for your input. What is odd to me is that these issues happened suddenly. It’s not like they moved a tower further away from our home. In fact, we have a tower about 1 mile away!Having these problems, I suspect T-Mobile isnt going to work for you long term unless you are going to put up with it.
The signal is no good at your location. Been there, done that, there is no solution unless by some stroke of luck you can find a place in your home with a strong signal. Your tower isnt close enough or updated enough.
Im saying this "blinded" by lack of information as I would have to know what speeds you are getting, morning, late afternoon and night using internet speeds tests. Preferably two of them. If your speeds arent blazing fast, like above 150 ish and better above 200ish (rough numbers) then you will always have an issue, can vary also by season. Winter could get better.
