How to change JioFi LTE band & set to Band 40 ?

Current Firmware installed in JioFi doesn't allows to change LTE band to preferred one. JioFi automatically select band having strong signal. It may be Band 3, 5 or 40 depending on where you are residing.

Jio already started Band 3 in most of telecom circles which is why Band 3 remains connected  to JioFi in most of time resulting slow 4G speed.

For superior LTE speed, JioFi needs to select Band 40 – 2300Mhz band is widely available in popular city & towns,  for rural areas, users need to place device in a place where signal for band 40 is available.

Jio 4g slow download speed in JioFi

If you are having very slow download speed in JioFi then be sure to movie device in a location where Band40 is available.

If you are getting slow download & browsing speed even after JioFi is connected to Band 40 then your are victim of speed throttling issue. Only solution to Jio 4g speed throttling issue is Speedify


We have tested many fixes but speedify only works – It's strongly recommended for all Jio subscribers. We managed to offer Speedify (Special 75% Off) for limited time, grab unlimited yearly plan for best 4g speed result.

How to Improve JioFi battery backup ?

If you travel a lot – You can't save battery a lot since devices lose much backup when devices changes bands – Home users may place JioFi in a place with good signal but less fluctuation.

Step 1: Go to ‘Settings'

Under ‘WiFi' menu

  • Set ‘802.11 Mode' to ‘2.4 Ghz (B)'
  • Set ‘WMM' to ‘Disable'
  • Set ‘Tx Power' to ‘Low'
  • Set ‘Channel mode' : ‘Automatic'

All you need is to check LTE Status in phone or PC/MAC and place device in a place where Band 40 is available.

Any Speed Throttling Issue in JioFi ?

NO, JioFi has no speed throttling issue !

    1. Hi Ananth,

      Having a JioFi means getting access to unlimited 4g data till last date of Preview Offer.

      Jio is taking too much time to solve any issue – This is due to overload in system thanks to sudden launch of service (Sept 5).

      Insert sim to any other 4g enabled phone > Install Jio4GVoice app > turn on data service.

      Then follow tutorial stated in

      Remember while using Sim in any other 4G module (Mobile/table) you will get ‘Welcome Offer’ with 4gb daily data limit but don’t worry !

      Later when you insert Jio sim to JioFi, your Welcome offer will become unlimited Preview Offer without any limit in usage.

      Please follow all steps carefully to ix your issue.

      For anything more feel free to add comments.

    Only two 3G mobiles are connected to it besides PC

  40. I am from Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh). I had purchased JioFi2 on August 24, 2016, for Rs2899.00 that got activated on Aug 26. I am enjoying unlimited data preview offer until Nov 24, 2016. I have a Samsung 3G dual SIM phone and have MyJio app on it. Earlier, I had installed JioJoin on this Samsung phone that on making calls via Voda or Aircel SIM inquired if I wanted to route the call through JioJoin which I did not because of interconnection problems. My vows started when this app got updated to Jio4Voice as then all calls from my Voda or Aircel SIM were “forcibly” routed through Jio and got blocked due to interconnection problems. I had no option but to delete this app. Is there any other way to make 4G calls via my Samsung 3G phone routed through JioFi2?

    1. Same issue here.
      The admin should update this article.
      I purchased the JioFi device on 9 September 2016 and yesterday they activated the welcome offer.
      Before this there was no speed throttling issue but now my speed is beig reduced to 128kbps after 4GB usage.

    2. Wait for the following day. Did you not read the terms of using this device. It DOES have 4 GB per day limit after which the speed would be 128 kbps. I am really wondering what are you all downloading at 4 GB per day? . There is a limit to even people going overboard with this FREE usage limit.

    Data is working fine and JioTV, Jio Cinema and Jio Music is working and also showing my name in welcome screen.

    Please help to understand if I need any change in Router Configuration or Phone Settings to get it work.

    1. Hi Abhijit Banerjee,

      This happens when Sim failed to detect JioFi WiFi network. Please be sure to check following details:

      1. If you are using VPN/DNS/anything then please turn them off until Sim detect WiFi network

      2. Launch Jio4GVoice app > Go to ‘settings’ > Be sure ‘Jio4GVoice Service’ is enabled. Also make sure try to ‘Change configuration’ to different types for make it work.

      3. If you get slow speed, be sure to use Speedify (Special 75% Off)

      This problem happens only when Sim fails to detect JioFi WiFi network.

      Hope you can fix it now, for anything more be sure to contact us.

      1. Correction. It is not the sim that detects wifi but the phone instrument. I have a 6 year old Samsung phone which has NO sim whatsoever, I use it over wifi to control IP controlled power switch to control 4 different devices.

  49. Hi Rahul
    You told that
    If you are using VPN/DNS/anything then please turn them off until Sim detect WiFi network.

    How should I change my VPN/DNS. I don’t know I found I had been using it or not.tell me how to turn it off and what if by turning it off will I get slow speed ?

    1. the speed will depend entirely of the speed the VPN server provides as also the connection speed TO the specific server. Don’t tell me you installed VPN service without knowing what is its purpose or how to use it.

  50. my speed is beig reduced to 128kbps after 4GB usage. how to get unlimated

  51. Hi Rahul,
    I do not have any VAN App in my phone and VON settings in phone is disabled. However, I don’t have any idea which DNS you are talking about. DNS of the JioFi is same as it was ( which cannot be changed in JioFi web configuration page. At least for my JioFi version.
    ‘Change Configuration’ option in Jio4GVoice App Settings page is grayed out and I don’t find any option to activate that.

    Please reply back if you have any idea.

    1. Hi Abhijit,

      Don’t worry about VPN or DNS, I can understand that you are not using any of them.

      1. I have Redmi 1S with MIUI8 and i am not able to register my JIoFi 2 OLED … suggest something

  52. Hi Rahul,
    I forgot to mention that the Jio4GVoice App registered with the Jio SIM properly and the number is also showing correct in Jio4GVoice Settings page. But it shows Offline. Even if I try uninstalling/reimstalling the App and re-registering it detects the SIM fine and register promptly. By the way, I am downloading the App using the same JioFi data connection, if that is mandatory for any reason.

  53. help me out, I forgot the password in my jiofi router. How can I reset the password?

  54. Hi Rahul,
    Thank you for trying to resolve the issue. However, I am sorry that the last steps of forgetting all saved Wi-Fi did not resolve the issue. My JioFi Firmware Version is FXN_B4W013_R6.5_PLMN_LOCK. Is there any conflict between this firmware and Jio4GVoice version 4.0.4?

    1. Mr. Abhijit Banerjee and Mr. Rahul, I am also facing the same problem and tried every steps what mr.Abhijit did. When I try to update the software by pressing the hardware reset button which is in backside and near to battery slot, “Update Error” is displayed…. Kindly guide us to solve the issue…….

    1. What you could try is connect another decent router as an access point and do all the configuration that you want in it. BTW JioFi is quite limited in what changes it allows.

  76. Skype is not working in PC with Jiofi….. connected jiofi with data cable… please help

  77. Thanks a tonne for such an informative article. I set all what has been suggested. However, I am still getting a download speed of less than 100 kbps despite exhausting just half of daily limit of 4 gb data. This is when I am getting a Band 40. However, at Band 40, the bandwidth is being shown, consistently @20MHz instead of “everywhere” reported 2300 MHz. Kindly guide.

  78. Even i am facing the same problem with skype and outlook too, and even network speed is reduced and fluctuating….i called customer care and complained but nothing seems to be working…

    1. This is what I have learned from their engineers. The whole idea of giving free downloads is to maximise the load on their network. This is real stress testing to sort out problem locations. After the tremendous amount they have invested and are going to in near future they can’t afford to fall on their face. May be this free period will be extended to 31st March 2017 if the need be.

      I suggest you get your self a wifi 4.0 dongle and try it. It has worked perfectly for me.

  79. Hi,

    I have a strange problem opening (not closing) local MS Word 2007 files in Win 7.

    The files open readily when I am NOT connected to the internet.

    The files open readily when I AM connected to the internet via my USB dongle (with a sim card, mobile internet connection).

    The files USED TO open readily when I was connected to the internet using broadband.

    I have recently acquired a Wi-Fi Hub (JioFi 3) which has one USB port (for charging and for connecting to the net).

    When I use tethering to connect to the internet using the Wi-Fi Hub, even a new, empty file takes almost a minute to open. Larger files take even longer.

    When I disconnect the Wi-Fi Hub, the Word files again begin to open normally.

    I did not configure the Wi-Fi Hub manually; it installed automatically without any errors (other than a Linux related one).

    Also, I did not have to “connect” to the internet; the device connects to the internet as soon as it is powered on or connected to the PC.

    There are no other people sharing the Wi-Fi Hub; I am the lone user.

    On another PC with Win 7 and Office 2007, I could not replicate the problem.

    A friend says to reinstall MS Office and turn off the online help option that comes during the installation. Does that make sense?

    Can you help resolve this problem, please?

    Best regards,


    1. I installed a USB WI-FI adapter on my PC and connected to the JioFi device through Wi-Fi.

      The problem is now gone.

      The problem was apparently only when I tethered the Wi-Fi Hub to my PC using a USB port.

      Thank you for your suggestions.

    Anything I can do???

    1. Hi Yasir,

      Jio4GVoice won’t work in any other devices except jioFi for now. Keep visiting we will update page once solution is found.

  83. Very informative article about Jiofi. Could you please advise that I am using Jiofi. Unable to get the 4G signle so far, even jio4GVoice not responding to my ZTE N818 whose Android version is 4.1.2? Jio other apps are working
    Looking forward to your favourable response
    With Best Regards Shakeel Ahmed

    1. No settings are needed to be changed.

      Just connect your Jiofi with your PC – taking care that you connec t it with a USB port at the rear of the PC and donot use the Jiofi supplied usb cable (it doesn’t connect), but preferrably use the USB charging cable of your smartphone that generally have better quality.

      In my case the speed inproved upon connecting to PC via an USB cable.

      Hope this helped.

  84. I am not able to do the initial setup. I have updated the SSID and password but i am not able to regoin by new credentials, also i am not able to update the user management details.

  86. Hello guys. Actually I needed a little help with my jiofi 3. Whenever I connect it to my laptop it displays no internet access there but I can still use it on my phone. Please suggest what should be done!

  87. Solution Here!! Cannot connect Jiofi using cable on PC??

    Hi Guys, If you are not able to connect jiofi on PC(Desktop/LAP). If Jiofi /LAN is not identified by PC. Solution here:

    Start > Device Manager > In Other Devices > Double click on Newly added device > It gets installed.

    Following device is added in Network Adapters:
    Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device

    Then internet is connected with LAN.

    Now enjoy Jio :)
    Let me know if it helps you.

  88. Hi, By using the WPS push button I connected one device. But later I noticed that even without pressing WPS, same device is again getting connected automatically whenever WiFi is on in that device. I think this WPS allows one time connection and next time it should again ask for WiFi password to connect (should not connect via WPS unless the WPS button is pressed). Please tell me why device allows to connect automatically?

  89. If JioFi does not allow you then you can always define the static IP in your device in stead of setting it as DHCP client. You should be able to set the DHCP client range on JioFi.

  90. Can you tell me about port forwording ? Can we do that with Jiofi? I just google about this and found that in setting their is a option of Gaming & App but i cound not found detailed info . Will you please share that also ?

    1. Hi Amrish,
      This is very simple in jioFi,
      Be sure to login to JioFi web panel,
      Now select ‘Setting’ tab > select ‘Gaming & Apps management’ from left side Menu > On the right side you will get ‘Port Forward’ option ? Just enable and configure settings according to your need.
