I have an unstable Optimum FIOS connection at home, it disconnects as many as 20 times a day but sometimes it never. Disruption can be from a few minutes to half an hour. T-Mobile 5G Home Internet does not have coverage in my area therefore Optimum is the only choice. There is an Optimumwifi hotspot nearby with very weak signal that I have to bring my laptop to the window to receive 6Mb/3Mb reception. Yet, when out of the main door around 50 ft closer to the hotspot transmitter, I can get 50/10 connection. My apartment does not allow outdoor antenna therefore the most I can do is to put a better antenna near the window. When connected to the hotspot, I need to input my user ID and password to get a connection. The hotspot is not always available when my FIOS is down but sometimes it works.
The unstable internet connection creates a lot of problem when I’m working from home and my kids are having remote classes. All of us have to go to the same window to get the hotspot connection. I’ve tried SIM tethering but data ran like water when we are having video class and conference.
I wish to find a product with failover connection in the following sequence - FIOS, Optimum hotspot then LTE bearing in mind that it should have very good hotspot reception. The device can come without a WiFi because I already have an AX wifi router while Peplink is only having AC wifi - please correct me if I’m wrong. Which Peplink product would have this ability?
