Experiencing slow Telkom LTE speeds during the lockdown?

Get your router IP address

  1. Go to Start (I assume you are Windows user)
  2. Run and type in “CMD”
  3. In the black command-line interface, type “ipconfig”. If you use Linux or Mac, you can type in “netstat -rn”, but I doubt you didn’t know that. Linux / Mac users are awesome.
  4. Copy that number after “Default Gateway: . . .” — that’s the IP address you are going to need to connect to your router.

Login to your router.

  1. You will need to login to your router. Again, if you or whoever set up your connection has not fiddled with the router, you will be able to login using either one of the following logins:
    Attempt #01:
    Username: admin
    Password: admin
    Attempt #02:
    Username: admin
    Password: password
  2. If your logins are any of the above, I assume you have custom login details and you know them. If you don’t, this is the part where you stop reading this tutorial. Here are instructions on how to reset your router — but you need to know what the hell you’re doing: https://www.verizon.com/support/residential/internet/home-network/settings/router-factory-reset
  3. After logging in, go to:
    - Settings
    - Dial-up (or Network Settings on other routers)
    - Network Settings
  4. And then change your settings to:
    - Network Preferred Mode: 4G Only (and on the popup, select Telkom LTE / Telkom 4G)
    - And Network Search Mode: Change to manual to prevent the router from reverting back to the slow ass 3G connection or falling back to another network that’s also suffering from the #fakenews Telkom told you.
  5. Save your Settings and call me to get my banking details.
Your settings should closely resemble this until Telkom fixes the issue.
