    rounsy222, I think you got some bad info from the last Sprint rep you spoke with. You may indeed be having issues with your Airave (not connecting) but that shouldn't have anything to do with the Sprint towers. The Airave provides a mini-cell tower in your home and then directs the voice/data traffic out through your internet connection. This essentially bypasses your nearby cell tower.

    Also, the Airave in it's current form only supports 1X data speeds so don't expect lightning browser, download, PAM speeds if you're on the Airave. Hope you get it squared away soon!

    Funny you should mention that. I agree entirely!I have come to the conclusion that none of them knows or cares about a customers issue enough to follow through. Sad really. I actually have been talking with the engineer that is checking our cell towers out and he did a drive by/sit in front of our house yesterday and he said that our airave is screaming hot. And that what we probably are experiencing is a shadow effect from that, meaning that its actually creating a dead spot in our home from being cranked up too high. Also with that it put noise into the air degrading what signal from the towers I maybe getting. I have spoken with him twice now and he is the only one so far that has given me the same info more than once, and he is just a contractor for them!
