My Smart Bro (Wi-fi) internet connection speed

Recommended Posts

@pusakal

Tell them that your connection is very slow. I once called them last December and the next day technicians arrived and replaced the antenna and checked the canopy settings.

Senfar antenna is inferior (smart broken) to the Motorola antenna (if you upgrade to Motorola antenna your Canopy version will also be updated). Keep on complaining or calling customer service about your slow connection (its all free).

update us after they replaced your antenna.

Cheers!!

@ fren 17

2x rate doesn't make your speed go faster..  :wink:

btw, nice speed you got there.. good job! :cool:

@ all

sorry i haven't posted for a while, we had our immersion camp at some remote place and i couldn't go online (i'm just a college student). [geek]

anyway, even though you have tweaked the canopy software and used all possible software tweaks out there, it will still depend on the network traffic in the base station your connected with(i.e, how many users are connected to your particular cell site). sadly, we cannot do anything about it. unless you want to connect to another base station (cell site), then that's another story.. :wink:

i see...you're not that far from taytay, i've called smart's costumer support and they said that they won't be making any hardware upgrade, they said that they only upgrade the old antenna, i think it's senfar and make it into a canopy antenna so they don't need to upgrade mine, maybe i can upgrade the firmware? what do you think guys? anyways they said that my connection is slow and they will make a report and call me back within 24 hours...i'll just wait and see what will happen.

dude, i didn't quite get you.. do you mean you have a sendfar antenna? or a motorola canopy? see my previous post for the pic of the motorola canopy. if you have a sendfar antenna, then they will upgrade your antenna to the motorola canopy one. if you already have the canopy, i suggest you call the customer service to upgrade your canopy software (but that means they will lock the canopy software from access thru http).

@Elijahpaul

I'm using Canopy right now but i think i have a different configuration page compared to everyone here so i asked the customer service if they can upgrade mine but they said that they cannot upgrade my canopy...i was thinking of upgrading the firmware, see my previous post for the caps of what my configuration page look like and see if i had an old canopy version.

@elijahpaul

can you help me bring my canopy page back i was trying to change my ip address but i can't change it so i browsed the canopy page and look at it for a while then i tried to enable a dhcp option...now i can't access it but i can access a diff canopy page if i followed your old post as in

changing IP address: 169.254.3.3

Subnet mask: 255.255.0.0

how can i bring the canopy page back?

anyways they changed my canopy they said that mine is an old canopy model and changed my base station but still i'm on a slow connection as in it's much slower when i test it earlier around 1pm - 12am my connection is only 55kbps 8kb/s download speed

i've already made the tweak but still nothing happens

well in that case can we change the base station on where we are connected? and how can we know the number of user's connected on that base station?

cheers! :lol:

i've read that he can change his own base station...

fren17 where are you from? i think i'm also blocked by the motorola canopy config page. i'm reading your posts regarding shorting the canopy antenna but don't know if i can do it right..you think you can give me your ym id or something? if it's ok that is.

hi guys

i had not seen this so sorry for not looking into it again

unfortunately i don't think i this thread is good enough for a sticky

imagine if you are new and come into this forum

and look into the smart bro section

if u look into this thread there is lots of information but scattered over a lot of pages

it is not friendly to the new users, and most likely who is going to read trough 10 PAGES of a forum ?

elijahpaul or any other smart bro user

i ask you to make one new thread with a guide / suggestion

on how to tweak ur canopy wireless antenna and all your experience on it

if you have a step one two three kind of thing

in one post then i can make that sticky

but i think making this thread a sticky would be confusing for the new users

cause its difficult to understand the information unless u read all 10 posts

do you agree with me ?

Yes,

a sticky would be good if it had the questions and answers all together. I have been on other forums where there are sections like Freq Asked Questions and Tips & Tweaks and so on. If some one did a post like that it could be put under one title, but don't ask me to do it, I'm semi-retired and don't have as much time.......left. :smiley:
