Hello, I would like to buy a router as best as possible up to PLN 500 with SIM card support. I do not know much, in general I would like, for example, options of both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands with USB ports, maybe you can advise something? Thanks!
And in what network does it work and what offer, whether there is coverage and on what LTE bands? What should USB support?
PLAY network, redbullmobile 100gb / msc offer, range on all bands, and as for USB is always something interesting in the future you can connect so to the back up. If there is a model that is a little more expensive to add, it will also gladly consider buying
For Play, it is worth buying a stationary router with aggregation of LTE bands, the budget fits E5186 e.g. https://allegro.pl/router-huawei-e5186-lte-advanced-plus-gw-2-05-2018-i7142884117.html or a little more expensive. They have USB to support printers or mass storage. For around PLN 400 you can buy B525 from Play or Plus, these have a USB port. Those with T-mobile do not have it (it is blinded). E5186 works with Toolbox 0.9 and LTEWatchH. B525 with HManager and LTEWatchH. these programs allow them to force specific LTE bands and aggregation of specific two LTE bands. They show BTS CID and signal parameters.
Interesting router, it is difficult to configure these bands? Should it work without band configuration? On which bands is it best to receive LTE? Maybe someone else has something interesting at this price, thanks.
Bands and aggregations are configured with external programs and applications that I replaced after logging in to the router. the applications will show BTS CID and signal parameters. of course, the computer, the phone with programs must be connected to the router. This allows you to choose the optimal band or aggregation of 2 LTE bands that give the best speeds. Play uses 4 LTE bands. The fastest assumption is LTE2600 with 20MHz bandwidth in MIMO2x2 and DL up to 150Mb / s, half on LTE1800, on LTE800 1/4 and on LTE2100 5 or 10MHz in MIMO2x2 and DL up to 37 / 75Mb / s. aggregation of 2 bands causes DL acceleration.
Thanks for the answer, so in total the most important pre-selected router is supported all 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands with the possibility of targeting them, the rest are just facilitating add-ons, so it's best to choose something solid and as popular among users.
2.4GHz and 5GHz in these routers are WiFi connected to the home network. in the router LTE is responsible for the modem and this one is in E5186, b525 6 categories, i.e. it aggregates 2 LTE bands. It supports the above and LTe900, plus 3G from UMTS900 and UMTS2100. On these routers, thanks to these applications you can choose specific LTe bands or aggregation of two specific. E.g. on Play LTE2600 + 1800.
