    There is. Its the exact modem and exact router. Just a diy software.

    Using the we826 router and the mc7455 modem.

    Anyone still using this on their VW Gudp's? Is this unit plug and play with all the latest updates?

    Hello Everyone. I just acquired a Mofi 4500 SIM4 through Unlimitedville.com. It has a Verizon SIM in it (the best signal in my area). As you all know, documentation is scarce for these things. I searched high and low to find a way to send AT commands to the LTE modem with very limited success. I did find some generic directions for doing this on a linux machine, but the only command that would return anything but an error was the "ATi5" command, which gives some basic info like the modem model and version info, MEID, ESN, IMEI, and FSN. I wanted to issue a !GSTATUS command hoping for signal data, but that just gave me an error. After several hours of research and dead ends, I was giving up and accidentally caused something useful to happen.

    What I got is a constantly repeating and updating output, showing the following data over and over:

    ------------------------------

    Here is the procedure:
    - Use Putty or your preferred ssh terminal client app
    - ssh to the ip address of your mofi 4500 and login as root, using the same password as you use to login to the Mofi's web interface
    - type the following command: cat /dev/ttyUSB2
    - You won't see anything happen initially. The terminal window will sit there waiting to display commands and output to and from the modem.
    - Now open your web browser and connect to your Mofi's web interface
    - Once logged in at the front page (or click on Overview, the first item on the left-hand menu), click the "Check Signal Strength" button
    - Normally, without the "cat /dev/ttyUSB2" command running, you would get a bar graph and some basic modem & signal info. Not this time.
    - What will happen instead is a "Collecting data..." sign that doesn't go away
    - However, you will now have a continuously scrolling output of modem data in your ssh window
    - I set the font size of my putty window to something large, then watched the output as I adjusted the two panel antennas outside an upstairs bedroom window. I was able to see the signal improve or diminish as I rotated my antennas.
    - To stop the scrolling output, do a CTRL-C, you can then type "exit" to logout of the ssh session
    - I had to reboot the modem to get the "Check Signal Strenght" button to go back to normal behavior.

    I hope you find this helpful.

    Bricked MoFi 4500 v2???

    My Mofi 4500 is likely bricked. Only green WAN light is on. I cannot access it via the web based GUI. I think I can sideload the firmware for this via USB or SD card. Has anyone done this? Any instructions? I've tried a search of HF's and can't find anything.

    Just hold down the reset button as you plug it in and it will take you to a recovery page where it reinstalls the firmware.

    Tried the reset button and the recovery instructions on the MoFi website. I only get a solid green WAN light (NO other flashing lights and NO access to the router via the web browser (times out). I cannot get into the router via wifi or ethernet, tried allthe different browsers too. Hence bricked

    Do you have a TTL cable? Just push the firmware using tftp.

    Considering getting a MOFI4500-4GXELTE-SIM4 for Verizon. My question is, what does the device report itself as to Verizon? Does it report itself as a modem/hotspot, thus being throttled to 600kbps on the new plans or does it report itself as a phone so you get the full 22gb before congestion throttling? Thanks in advance.

    Verizon sees it as "SIERRA WIRELESS - MC7455" so an aircard.

    The plans have likely changed since you last looked.

    The go plan includes unlimited deprioritized data and no priority data hotspot use is allowed on phone but only limited to 600kbps you can't add a dedicated hotspot to the go plan.

    The beyond plan includes 22GB then unlimited deprioritized data. Hotspot and dedicated hotspot use is allowed but is limited to 15GB then 600kbps.

    IDK how sim swapping is handled on the new plan but I would assume it it's not going to allow you deprioritized data.

    Yes it sees it as a hotspot. You will be reduced to 600 kbps after 15 gb.

    I just tried mine two days ago.

    Guys, I have a Mofi 4500 SIM4 that I was using with my T-Mobile SIM but last week or so I was no longer able to use the internet on it. Every page redirects me to T-Mobile saying I am using an unauthorized device. I have since put one of my current unlimited Verizon SIMs into it and it works but I get throttled after 15GB. Is there a setting somewhere in the software to keep them from limiting it? They have effectively turned my Unlimited SIM into a 15GB line as it gets throttled after that. Thanks.

    They did not enforce the hotspot limit since the new unlimited plan introduction until now. Some people use phones that bypass the hotspot check. I believe phones like the Moto X Pure 2015 edition, and now the Moto Z Play 2. Possibly a Samsung S8 that is unlocked. You'll have to do a Google search. Then you could plug one of those phones into the Mofi?
