I have it connected to my Velop mesh router and I get consistent speeds throughout the house. My only "issue" is occasionally I need to reboot the device. I can do it through the Netgear gui, only problem is I don't have battery in it and it won't restart. I can unplug it from power and plug back in and it restarts no problem.

    Hi. How can you band lock AT&T M1 Nighthawk Mifi? I don’t see any option in my mifi settings.

    There are several threads over on the netgear forums. As I recall you need to connect the m1 to a laptop via USB, telnet into it, and run some special commands.

    JSchnee21, thank you for taking heed to my warning.

    This type of response is acceptable as it did not go into specific detail and did not have attached internet links. There are other forums that do discuss such topics in much more detail and that's where it belongs.

    Sure. Your welcome, I think. IMHO, I don’t really consider band locking to be a taboo subject. Nearly all cellular devices — except those sold in the USA — support it.

    But because carriers have a death grip on mobile devices here in the states, it’s in their best interest to prevent it.

    Band locking is not a taboo subject. The burden of proof is on the one who would make the any such claim. Anyone who argues otherwise has absolutely no comprehension of how cellular technology works.

    There is no jurisdiction on the planet that outlaws it, and it in no way violates any carrier's terms of service. I am willing to change my mind if somebody can provide evidence to the contrary.

    In fact, band locking is very comparable to other means of improving one's signal (like cellular boosters, device placement, device selection, etc) and is very much in the spirit of HoFo.

    It can be performed with or without root access, so I'll spare whoever decides they will try to cop out with that non-argument.

    The topic thread had nothing to do with band locking in the first place. The issue in question came up in reply #3 and that's when it became an issue of potential fraud and a warning was initially posted.
