Hi!

So recently I bought this modem for temporary use while waiting for my Fiber line to be connected. It has been a tedious 3 day tweaking and finding the right set-up and spot for the modem to get the best signal strength and speed that I can. A lot of the threads that I have read on this thread are asking about how to get the best speed and signal for there modem and not explaining the basics of what to look at on your settings. So I'm creating this thread to atleast make you readers aware (if your still not) that this are the things that you should look at and not just the signal.

This is simple yet efficient way to read your modems signal. By having a balance of every "Good" or "Excelent" numbers of each measurement, you can have a stable and consistent connection. You can click the link if you still want to read on about this.

Now little bit of backgroud, the past 3 days was hell. Inconsistent connection, abrupt speed test, high latency and everything that you can think of when configuring your modem. So I decided to do something about the modem and try accessing the full admin settings. By the way. I'm using the Globe Home Prepaid Wifi ZLT S10G model. I chose this model for it's easy openline and full admin access tutorials. I won't bother giving the tutorial here, kindly search you way on how to do those things, it's all over the web (and even here in this forum).

Now the steps that I did to achieve my stable signal and connection:

NOTE: ALL OF THIS ARE SETTINGS THAT YOU CAN ACCESS ON FULL ADMIN MODE

1. Find a spot for your modem. Some say that signal strength is irrelevant and you should not focus on this. But as bit a of OC person, I like my signal to be max as much as possible. So look for a spot for you modem that has atleast 4-5 bars of signal strength on the spot.

Quick tip: Try using the app OPEN SIGNAL. It can show you the nearest Cell tower in your area and try facing the antennas for your modem there.

2. Look for the best Band frequency for your modem. Again, you can access this once you have the full admin access on your modem. This is the most critical part of what you should find for your modem. Every area has a different signals of Band, try to find the best signal of Band on your area. Choose one and speed test, rinse and repeat until you can get the highest download and upload speed. Once you get one, lock that Band and proceed to the next step.

3. Cell locking. This is an optional set-up, if you live in a bustling and very busy city (like I do), chances are all the cell towers are congested. If you want to have a stable connection and stop your modem on hunting cell towers, Cell locking is the key. BUT in order to have the best result, you must first get the best cell tower in your area. The technique here is using the app NET MONITOR, this app will guide you on the list of the cell tower and cell id in your area. Try looking for GREEN cell tower and ID and lock that. It's a tiresome task but once you get your cell tower and ID, everything will be smooth from here.

Quick tip: There's an option on the setting of NET MONITOR app that you can categorize the Cell ID according to BAND name. This is very useful especially if you already got the best Band frequency for your modem.

4. WiFi frequency channel. Again, using a less congested channel for your modem is the key for a good and stable connection. Use the app NETGEAR WIFI ANALYTICS for this one. It will show you the least congested channel for your WiFi frequency.

5. APN. For the modem that I use, it is very tricky to add an APN, so just search it again and be done with it. It's okay to use the standard APN of the modem, this is just an optional setting that you can tinker with if you have the time and patience.

So those are the things that I tinkered on my modem to get the best possible result of RSRP, RSRQ, SINR and RSSI on my modem. This is not a full guide post per se, but the things that I have listed are the tools that you may need to get a start from it. The rest is up to you if you have the patience for researching and reading about this.

Or just stick the stock settings and let the modem do the job for you.

Here's the modem measurement that I have right now, I change between BAND 3 and 41 depending on the time and have a stable locked Cell ID.

Mabuti naman at nakuha mong mai ayos yung connection mo, ako minsan hindi ako nag re-rely sa figure/reading na nasa gui/dashboard ng modem hindi rin madalas accurate yun once mag speed test ka or sa actual habang nag bu-browse, strêâmïng or download ka ng file

yan yung S10G ko

even walang bar sa signal indicator ay yan yung actual speed

Oo bro, dami kong ni read up para sa modem na yan. Na stable ko naman na yung connection tho hindi ko talaga kaya ipalo yung speed ko past 25mbps. Pero okay na din as long as stable siya.

Discretion mo na yun sir kung gusto mo yan gamitin. Nilatag ko lang yung facts about how to read the numbers doon sa modem.

If mas malakas yung red, go lang sir. Pero I suggest trying to ping test your connection muna, just to check consistent yung latency mo. If you're into gaming kasi too much request time out sa ping ko is a deal breaker kahit sobrang bilis ng speed.

If you have a laptop or pc, connect mo lang then go to:
Start > search bar > type CMD > type ping 8.8.8.8 -t

Monitor mo lang if madalas yung request time out sa connection mo.
