Ellipsis jetpack keeps disconnecting

Newly purchased (mid Jan 2019) keeps disconnecting from internet and has to be rebooted.

I know that after a certain amount of data is used, the service slows; I get that.  But this constant disconnecting has me wanting to throw it against a wall...along with the whole of Verizon.

Anybody else have this problem?

Check your signal strength and check the local Admin website on the Jetpack for logs.  See if there are any events that show a disconnection from Verizon or not.  If you are disconnecting from Verizon then there is a signal strength or a capacity issue in your area.

You can improve signal strength by bringing the Jetpack to a different area.  That or setup an amplifier and antenna system to increase the reception in your preferred area.

You cannot improve capacity issues.  If the tower is overworked then VZW would have to invest to upgrade the towers in your area and they don't do that because you ask them to.  You can work around capacity issues by using the Jetpack at off-peak hours.  Try using it at different times of the day and see if your issues are time related.

if your Jetpack is going into sleep mode due to internet inactivity then you might be using the incorrect device for your situation. Jetpacks are designed for quick mobile usage, then to be shutdown until the next session.  If you want a 24/7 home internet replacement device then look into a 4G LTE home router.

Hello, BONLOU59, and thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. Though we never want to hear that it's for this reason, we'd be more than happy to take a look into the performance of your service as well as your device. To start, let's get more details pertaining to your current situation. How long has this been happening for? Also, has there been any recent construction or severe storming in your area that may have caused an effect on the service? Last, don't as if you've made any negative impact if you haven't, but to ensure we save you from having to repeat yourself, can we have you confirm any troubleshooting steps you may have taken to try to fix this on your end?

97104247,

 

This isn't the experience we want you to have with your jetpack. I rely on mine too and I'll be happy to get to the bottom of this. What's the make and model of your jetpack? Can you tell me when it first started rebooting? Has it been exposed to any type of liquid or physical damage?
