Question / Issue
Signal strength display does not update when using the Novatel PC-770 (Verizon) or C777 (Sprint) 3G modem

Answer / Solution

The Novatel PC-770 / C777 3G modem is not capable of reporting the received cellular signal stregnth (RSSI) while connected to the 3G network in a data session.  The RSSI value shown on the LAN-Cell 2 Home screen is the last known value before a connection was made. 

For a current RSSI reading, you must drop the active data connection when using the Novatel modem.
