This worked for me. To mention that I assigned it as DHCP client and for me was eth2.

Hello, I have a Huawei E3372H-510 modem on the T-Mobile network using a tablet/hotspot plan. When I plug the USB modem into my windows 10 PC directly and run speedtest.net I get 22-25 mbps and sometimes I can get 30mbps. Now if I connect the modem to the router, run the same speedtest.net (meaning same server as before) I only get 10 mbps-15mbps. Does the usb port on the AR150 router maybe not have full power for higher speeds? Maybe there is some software running on the router that is slowing down the traffic? This doesnt make sense. Btw both the router and the windows 10 pc have there TTL set to 65 so its not a network throttle issue. Some how the router is about 5-10 mbps slower then direct connection.

I also had to change the name used when requesting dhcp. It was using "root" and was giving me errors. After I changed to "a", it worked just fine.

Depends on the firmware of the lte dongle. There are modded firmwares available where you can select the allowed bands.
Open the interface via http://192.168.8.1/ or http://192.168.4.1/

Hi

Thanks.
I'm using the original firmware with Hilink:

Nombre del equipo: E3372
IMEI: xxxx
IMSI: xxxx
Vers. del hardware del: CL2E3372HM
Vers. del software del: 22.328.62.00.1217
Versión de UI web: 17.100.18.05.1217
Dirección MAC de LAN: BA:AB:xx:xx
Dirección IP WAN: 172.xx.xx.xx

But with this IP I can check the configuration (and i think force the 4G mode)

Regards
