Not possible through Jiofi AFAIK. Did anyone try using Airtel Hotspot device? Or if is there any alternative?
I know we can do it through mobile but the hotspot range is very poor when it comes to a mobile hotspot.

i used redmi note 4G as hotspot during initial stage that heats like a hot pan, now using my redmi note 4, which is cool even running for more than 24 hours as hot spot.

I m using Airtel data card E3272 with tplink mr3020 router, with a modified dashboard of Airtel 4g datacard band locking is possible. It may work with airtel hotspot device though i haven’t tried it on Airtel hotspot device. Its working fine on Airtel 4g datacard.

How much it costs you for battery ? You buy original or 3rd party ? And from where ?

For Jiofi battery not required.

Pls remove the battery and connect the jiofi with the charger directly full time.

It is working fine

Yes. i have connected it with my desktop ups.

When power goes i will use internet from my mobile by switching on hotspot till power comes again. If power is going off frequently in ur locality, then it is not the best option.

Use a USB3 port, this happens when your USB2 port can not supply enough current. Using a better cable also helps.. Using a motherboard connected USB2 port also helps.. But since USB3 ports can supply 2A, cables dont make much difference with them..

The charger that came with it? Cable makes a huge difference.. Thats why those JIO cables are so thick.. Thin cables work but it has to be well made like the ones that come with samsung. My extended USB ports can not work with this device since during transfer it requires more than the 500ma that the port supplies.. Although generally LTE only uses 600ma, during a storm and such that goes up to 3000ma… So in such cases you do need a USB3 port or Battery to provide additional power or it will disconnect.

Yes,
Airtel modem E5573CS-609 ver 21.329.63.00.284 is unlockable and can select manually desired network band with modified firmware and web interfaces.
There is firmware available for this modem. but it very risky if it fails (it wont happen) to flash fimrware, device will be dead permanently . (until new solution) .
Link-
http://i.dinis.ru/firmware/mod/e5573/E5573Cs-60...
unzip with winrar and install, when finished insert any operator sim card, open 192.168.8.1
in network setting there option to select manually network selection. like onlt LTE. then select desired band.
The device works without battery only with UMTS (HSPA+) network, if you select LTE then device reboot .

Jiofi is a pure waste. Getting only 50-100 KBPS. Getting 10-15MBPS on mobile.
