MC7455 + WE826 - Slow Speeds (VZW)

So I setup a MC7455 in a WE826 router. It’s up and running but I’m having issues with speeds. On my Note8 I get 40-60 Mbps down easily. On my router setup, I’m connected and only getting between 5-15 Mbps down (upload is always higher, 10-20). I verified I’m connected to same tower and on the same band (B4).

Any ideas/advice is much appreciated.


Hi mathena2,

Throughput is affected by many factors, network/signal/band, USB interface/driver, host, etc.

Can you share more info:

  • Which driver and how data connection is established on WE826?
  • Any chance WE826 is using PPPD?
  • Does same issue happen when you test MC7455 connect to PC (over USB)?
  • Please check and share “AT!GSTATUS?” return?

And you may get some info from similar post below using same WE826:

What is PPPD?

Do not have a a USB enclosure for it. It’s hooked up inside router

Sorry, I don’t have info about WE826.

But seems like signal is not good, maybe you can check (or try different) antenna?
