The question is HOW did you get to that?

I can't see any of that, and appears to be locked out to AS customers.

You will break the Airstream Connect app because it has a hard coded login and password that will no longer work as it has been reset to the default. However, you will have access to the default login and password and the web management pages of the BR1. You will also have access to make setting changes that will cause the router to stop working so ....

Just had Airstream Connected installed at JC. Not only was a GPS antenna left behind in a box but also three other antennas... I know GPS is working, so that is OK, but should I be concerned about the other three antennas?? Was told by the tech that installed the system that they are not used.

They have turned off WiFi as LAN, but so far performance is so bad sitting here in the TerraPort that the system is unusable. Can't even get email to load. Have to switch to my phone hotspot to use the Internet. A tech support guy is coming out to my trailer at lunch to check things out.

Are you saying that they did not hook up the other three wires to the Peplink or that you have threee wires in the box or three short antennas in the box? I'm confused.

Do you have four wires hooked to the back of the Peplink?

Sorry for confusion. There are four wires hooked to the back of the Peplink, one labeled 2.4 /5 GHz MIMO that is not hooked up (extra?), and three short antennas and a GPS antenna in the box.

Thanks,

Steve

Sounds like you are hooked up right. AS had to go north to find ATT signal when they tested the system. Have you looked at a map? JC is out in nowhere! If you go a bit further north you will find roads missing from your gps map!

So, are you saying I should not worry that so far here at the TerraPort the system is borderline useless, that once I leave this area I should see an improvement?

Thanks,

Steve

Yea, I would not worry, but it is sad that you can't test it properly. Looking at several cell tower sites and Jackson center has no tower. Closest is east at Indian "something" and west off of the interstate. One or no bars are reported at the factory. "Poor" service overall.

Now get yourself a second wireless router to make this sing!

Note: I have not performed these steps myself - just reading about it in the manual. I have full intention of checking it out next time I'm at my trailer in storage or on a trip with it.

The AT&T account is an LTE account. ALL LTE access is TDMA access even if the base phone is CDMA. This means that if you have a cellphone that is LTE capable, it has a sim card in it somewhere even if it is a Verizon phone (which uses CDMA).

When I compare the LTE footprint of AT&T and Verizon, they are mostly similar, but some differences do exist.

The BR1 mini modem, per the manufacturer, can be used with AT&T, Verizon, or T-mobile. If you have a Verizon or T-mobile phone, you can swap out the AT&T sim card in the BR1 modem for your Verizon/T-mobile sim card and it will work.

You may need an adapter as my iPhone SE uses a micro sim card. Most phone comapny stores will have those adapters.

Your Airstream App may not work because it is tied to the AT&T site in many aspects, but you should be able to perform a speed test.

I do not know which sim card in the BR1 mini needs to be swapped. I assume is is slot 1, but since I haven't physically tried this yet, I don't know for sure.

Has anyone tried moving the AT&T SIM to an AT&T or unlocked hotspot as a backup?

They are not used. I had the same ones "left over" after our install. The GPS one is for testing only or temp use and the other three are not needed because of the new Mimo antenna on top of the AS.

You are good!

What speeds are you getting and from where?
