I've got a couple of older 4g Vodafone mobile hotspots (R215 and R216H) that I'm planning to use with my Boost Sim for a few weeks.
The Sim is recognized (I either bought them unlocked or unlocked them myself, can't remember) but the performance seems pretty bad. Couple of tests I ran were 2 and 6 mbs download and 3 up both times. My regular phone is also on boost and same location getting 22 down,14 up. Although it's a VODA unit, it does allow admin user to set a custom connection, which I've done. The screenshot below is a generic one, not my settings.
The settings I've added are:
IP Type: IPv4
..and that's it.
The unit is capable of 100 or 150 Mbs down, so I'm assuming it's not faulty, so is there anything else I should add to the settings that might improve things?
