Connection being dropped

Recently got the LG 4g USB modem.  Works great most places but not at my home.  The program on my notebook shows 2 bars, It connects and then disconnects usually within 20 to 30 seconds.  The Verizon may shows 4G coverage at my location.  I tried 4 spots at my home some right next to a window.  Same result.

Hello,   If you are in a marginal 4G area,  consider the solution offered in the following thread.

 

http://community.vzw.com/t5/4G-Discussion/is-there-a-way-to-switch-off-4g-temporarily/td-p/495910

 

While I'm at it,   here's a message for the VZAM developers,  since there seems to be no obvious way to compare 3G and 4G signal strength simultaneously in these devices,  perhaps a manual "select" button is in order to force the mode.   The "hidden"  diagnostics menu is a bit technical for most users.  But thank you for telling us about it - some of us early adopters are techies as you know.  :smileyhappy:
