Wifi calling/EE Signal Box or Vodafone Sure Signal don't work on 4B Broadband?

Hi

 

Landline broadband is hopeless and found that with an external antenna and USB dongle or TPLink 46 Router I can go from 5MBs to 30, 40 or 50MBs.  However, inside the house the mobile signal is bad and with broadband my phone uses Wifi calling and my mother’s emergency 3G phone (not smart phone) uses a Signal Box from EE (have also tried Sure Signal Vodafone ).  When using 4G for the Internet neither of these solutions continue to work. Even opening UDP ports 4500 and 500.

 

Are these ports blocked on 4G broadband?  Bit of a pain as we gain broadband, but we lose the use of our mobile phones.

EE block no ports.

 

Signal Boxes & WiFi Calling are used in conjunction with a fixed BB router.

Hi

 

With that, tried the same USB dongle in a Draytek 2760, same ports open and it worked 🙂

 

So the TP-Link TL-MR6400, even with all ports open in the phone and Signal Box, was blocking things.

 

Many thanks
