This video shows you exactly how you can have cheap unlimited internet in your van or rv while traveling and living on the road.

We want you to enjoy the freedoms of unlimited, un-throttled LTE internet while traveling, just as we do.
This is how to experience unlimited LTE internet in 2021 while living in our van,
Will also work for buslife rvlife (also works in “normal” homes 😝)

00:00 Intro
1:35 Cost
2:35 $25/month
7:28 Changing IMEI
11:35 Important last step

Netgear M1 Router NEW -
Renewed –
(make sure to purchase an unlocked model, or will need to unlock it yourself using DC-Unlocker)

If you are an Apple / Mac user, you will need to run a terminal line command every time your computer restarts if you want to really tap into fast internet speeds! (SEE BELOW!)

We recommend saving this as a text edit to your desktop. Again, if you don’t restart your computer often, and it doesn’t die/run out of battery often, then you will rarely need to do this 👌🏼

Terminal Line command FOR APPLE COMPUTERS!!
sudo sysctl -w net.inet.ip.ttl=65

    Does this still work with Visible? Can someone confirm? Did you need to activate the sim using the phone the IMEI is tied to?

  2. Connor Green on December 7, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Hey! thanks so much for this guide. I got this to work, however, it appears to be throttling me still at right around 5up/5down (even after changing the IMEI, etc.). Anything else i should be looking at? I also only appear to be getting connection when verizon is my APN, although my nighthawk still says Visible. Thanks!!

  3. Mr. Puga on December 7, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Will this work with the nighthawk m6 changing the imei

    Thank you. This is a great How-To! Earned you a subscription.

    Jake, I have a question. When you make a mobile hotspot with a cellphone, that data is typically outside the "unlimited data" of the cell plan. When you change the IMEI of the hotspot router to a cellphone IMEI won’t the mobile carrier charge the wifi’d data differently from the data used by the device itself?

  6. WildGoose on December 7, 2022 at 12:39 am

    This is genius! Before changing the IMEI the hotspot always showed disconnected and immediately connected and started working after changing the IMEI

  7. rachelcenter on December 7, 2022 at 12:39 am

    6:!5 you need PC? it wont work on mac? dealbreaker.

  8. Roger Olivier on December 7, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Hi, thanks for the video. I heard this model reboots randomly. What’s your experience with the m1? I want to buy a 4g router but I’m afraid I get the same rebooting issues I had with the mifi 8000.

  9. Robby Myer on December 7, 2022 at 12:41 am


  10. Naj husainy on December 7, 2022 at 12:46 am

    Hi Jake please, need your help. When i connect netgear m1 router my laptop looses the internet. So when I try to repair the IMEI thru DC-UNLOCKER it gives an error of "operation timeout" basically because it gets disconnected from the home wifi.
    I can’t seem to find the issue. Could use your help.

    P.S. I have not put in the Visible Sim card in the M1 router.

  11. Hope Through Prophecy on December 7, 2022 at 12:46 am

    What upload/download speeds are you getting?

  12. ALLAN WALLACE on December 7, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Wonderful video. I now have 3 nighthawks and cancelled my home Internet. Thanks

  13. Jessica Heffner on December 7, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Still using visible? And would this work with Verizon mofi? Or other routers? Example orbi lte

  14. KR3AM on December 7, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Got this going a couple of days ago and was working great using straight talk, however I got a message saying that my 15gb of hotspot data was used up and now it doesn’t work. For some reason straight talk still recognizes it as a hotspot and not a cell phone. I followed all the steps. Anyone have any recommendations? PLEASE HELP ME 😭

  15. James Boaz on December 7, 2022 at 12:48 am

    What imei do I use? The Visible wireless check compatibility section is broke and won’t actually check.

  16. Yuh👨‍🎤 on December 7, 2022 at 12:49 am

    What is the upload and download speeds after this is successful?

  17. Mrs North Star on December 7, 2022 at 12:50 am

    Hi, great video I keep coming back to it as I’d like to do this. I would like to know if I have visible in my phone already can I give them the same IMEI of my phone to activate a second sim card? Or will that create some kind of error having the phone and hotspot on the same imei? I’d really appreciate a reply and thank you so much

  18. pdxxjjeep on December 7, 2022 at 12:53 am

    In the comments there is mention of setting ttl.
    You don’t mention this in the video, and I can’t find anywhere that even tells me what that means.
    Also your "last important step" actually disables the router. So far mine is only working on the verizon APN vzwinternet. And has max speeds of about 6mbps. If I put in the Visble apn it goes offline.

  19. jerry kings on December 7, 2022 at 12:54 am

    Great video! Question:

    1. Is DC unlocker the only app available out there or is there an alternate app that can be used?

  20. Anything Adrenaline on December 7, 2022 at 12:54 am

    So, just so I’m understanding this correctly.

    Where we Camp, We lose cell service & internet. If we purchase this device, will we have internet?

  21. Sergey Sushinskiy on December 7, 2022 at 12:54 am

    What about latency (ping) and packet losses, late packets?

  22. James Boaz on December 7, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Can’t get passed this server timed out error. Can’t sign in to DC unlocker.

  23. rachelcenter on December 7, 2022 at 12:55 am

    i’m trying to find a hotspot device to buy that will give me fast internet speeds at a HOTEL that only has 30mpbs wifi. (again, at a hotel, not at my home, which means i’m not in charge of the internet situation). i dont know anything about this technology. i tried calling one company who made a physical device for hotspots and they couldnt even give me a ballpark range of upload speeds if i buy this device. so it seems like a gamble to buy one if the device isnt going to give me speeds faster then the advertised 30mbps wifi hotel. are you able to speak to the internet speeds of these things? looking to upload a 4gig file from a hotel

  24. SiNKarnage on December 7, 2022 at 12:56 am

    I followed all the steps but the client failed connecting to DCUnlockers Servers everytime I try logging in because my windows is trafficing through the hotspot over my Router which has data.

    Please help I already wasted 33 on this 🙏

  25. ALLAN WALLACE on December 7, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Hi I did everything but I’m still getting slow speed. Do you have any suggestions?

  26. KirkyDaTurkey on December 7, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Best tutorial out here on this solution! Thanks Jake! Gonna give it a shot this month. Fingers crossed 🤞

  27. K C on December 7, 2022 at 1:05 am

    has it been throttled to 5mb yet?

  28. yelorsirhc on December 7, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Doesn’t work anymore… Visible has figured this out too

  29. Batuhan Aydın on December 7, 2022 at 1:10 am

    I’ll try this week. Is this method still working?

  30. D&G Sales LLC on December 7, 2022 at 1:11 am

    I do not have a spare phone laying around to obtain an IEMI. Is there another way to obtain an IEMI number?

  31. B-Lo Dirt on December 7, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Hey just wondering if a micro sim works in the M1 ??

  32. Dreamy Exhalations on December 7, 2022 at 1:12 am

    Will this work if visible signal is bad in my area?

  33. Silverman!! S on December 7, 2022 at 1:14 am

    I have a question, work with pre pay plan at&t??

  34. ALZX on December 7, 2022 at 1:15 am

    do you just use a regular phone simcard? am I able to use tablet plans in my m1?

  35. Thanatos Katakrima on December 7, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Talked to damn much and said very little 🤦🏻‍♂️ Damn YouTubers and their bad habit of not getting to the point 🤦🏻‍♂️

  36. Silverman!! S on December 7, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Hola, actualmente sigue funcionando este método??

  37. Kaitlin Callaghan on December 7, 2022 at 1:17 am

    whar kind of speed do you get?

  38. LOL No on December 7, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Hey how do you charge it? Does it need wall outlet or is USB charging allowed

  39. shakur Ike Ojii on December 7, 2022 at 1:21 am

    If you factory reset your nighthawk M11; does it wipe out the changed IMEI?

  40. Will Hurst on December 7, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Followed the video to a T and at the end I realized the router I bought wasn’t unlocked… 🤦‍♂️ So I’m reaching out with a couple questions if you can help. I’m hoping the seller will release it from their AT&T account to make it unlocked, but if they can’t I’ll probably just buy a new one. If I get a new one can I use the same IMEI number from the phone I previously used to rewrite the first router I bought or will I have to get a different one? Second question, if that’s the route I go and eventually sell the first router, will I need to change back the IMEI to its original one? Thanks for your time!

  41. 2507 apt 10 on December 7, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Hey Jake is it still working? I just put the visible sim in my m1 its saying broadband no connection I’ve activated it in a phone already. Any suggestions??

  42. EveryThingEpicTV on December 7, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Thanks! I was gonna comment that it don’t work any more but it worked I appreciate it

  43. notrabepep on December 7, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Tried this on T-mobile because that’s my current cell provider. It sees the device as a phone with this process but T-mobile recognizes it as using a hotspot feature, so it uses all your hotspot data in your plan. Trying Visible next.

  44. KnowWay on December 7, 2022 at 1:24 am

    First of all, thanks for this, now I can use low power IOT things in my van 🙂 One issue, I get about 10mbps on my Macbook, even after using the TTL command. Even a bit more would be really helpful for zoom calls and such. Anyone know a fix?

  45. bweather04 on December 7, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Or just find a WiFi router that’ll take a WiFi signal and rebound it.

    But it would be nice to be far into the woods with internet.

  46. 2507 apt 10 on December 7, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Hey Jake Do I have to change the ime on the router before it works with visible sim ?

  47. Yegor Pershin on December 7, 2022 at 1:27 am

    You earned yourself another subscriber! Cheers!

  48. Frostfire40 on December 7, 2022 at 1:28 am

    I’m a trucker going all around the US. I need to connect my GPS device (Garmin) to wifi. Does this connection work everywhere even when I’m in areas where my phone has low or non existent connection?

  49. Morgan Sharp on December 7, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Thank you Jake. Great video. Are you still using this setup? Have you had any further updates?

  50. ron ethridge on December 7, 2022 at 1:31 am
