    You guys are legends. Just been having issues with Plex and noticed the ip address problem. Added custom profile as mentioned and voila. Could it also be that my performance has improved? Been terrible recently but now noticably better...

    Default INFO: USENET problems after recent B315 (LTE) upgrade

    If your USENET provider keeps kicking you off for "Probable account sharing" it is because the modem changes its public IP address every few seconds.

    In your browser go to http://homerouter.cpe/html/quicksetup.html
    If you haven't changed it, login is admin admin
    Select Dial-up -> Profile Management
    Click on New Profile
    Give the new profile a name (not important what it is)
    Leave User name and Password blank
    Select IPv4 & IPv6 for IP type
    In APN type unrestricted
    Click Apply
    Switch the modem off and on.

    Should solve the problem

    seems like the unrestricted APN is giving trouble now too.
    mail stops pushing through every 45 minutes or so, I keep needing to restart router to get it back online

    I'm only seeing improvements my side. My Twitter timeline and video is loading instantly again like the old days. For the last 2 weeks using the normal INTERNET APN, there was been major lag issues....

    It seems to me like its the Huawei B315 routers that are giving a problem as well.
    Indeed they are, the firmware update from a few weeks ago made it a piece of crap. Hence I've bought a B593 to replace it and STOP Telkom from forcing upgrades on my router.

    So what I've noticed is that my public IP address changes every few seconds. The LTE connection doesn't drop but it just changes - google "what's my IP and refresh constantly and you literally watch it change every few seconds. It's always 197.229.x.x with those last two octets changing. I've never experienced this before in the +2 years I've had LTE, so when I got in contact with Telkom the end result of a painful chat-where I had to explain that I wasn't looking for a static IP address, but that dynamic addressing shouldn't work this way-was that "every time you connect to the internet the IP address changes", which was apparently the response from two of the back office technical guys.

    This can't be correct. There are consumer services which doesn't necessarily require a static address, but does require that your address not change during a single connection session. Services like smartDNS, which for me no longer works because of this.

    This started from today for me. Has anybody else run into the same or similar issues recently on their Uncapped LTE?
    Im having the exact same problem. Any feedback yet on this issue?

    Remote access to my cameras and alarm system failed and it took me a long while to notice that my IP address was changing 2-3 times a second. So port forwarding and DDNS updating wasn't working. I've given your APN 'unrestricted' a try on my B315 and so far it's working a treat. Thank you so much!!!
