11. Do you have an external antenna?
I'm using three of the ubs727 modems, and service can get pretty iffy on occasions. I'm 8 miles from the cell tower.

There are a number of tricks to reestablishing the connection, but that's usually not where the problem lies. I just got power, so I'll finally be able to get an amplifier. But for now I'm using an external antenna. Without that, the connection would be SLOW.

Internet connection is one of my all time fuses. I go ballistic without it.

At any rate, I hope this is helpful somewhat.

Nice photo, by the way. I miss living in Coquille. I'll bet it's not far from the horizon in that picture.
