  1. Thanks for the clarification! Learned quite a lot in this thread Oddly enough, the connection recently improved a great deal (with no fiddling from me ^^: ) and Smart even called to ask if we felt any improvements on our end. We're still experiencing disconnections, but it's not as severe as before. I just hope it doesn't degrade like it did during the previous months.

  3. Yes, the techs have been here five times in the past two weeks First time, they extended our antenna by 10 feet, making it 17 feet, for P400. Second time, they replaced the antenna.

Fifth time was actually earlier today, and while connection was restored we still experience massive disconnections in-between. I'm still waiting to see if the connection will last the day at all - it hasn't so far within the month of May. We lose our connection entirely after a few hours.
  4. Hi everyone, hope I'm doing this right! We've been experiencing a lot of problems with our Smart connection, and I took a peek into the AP list earlier once connection was restored to see if shifting base stations would help.
