I figured it was worth posting here so I have yet to have success with anything else.
I live in an area almost exactly inbetween three AT&T cell phone towers, so subsequently my phone is constantly switching singnals from one tower to the other giving me very inconsistent service. After diagnosing the problem with AT&T about six months ago they sent me a micro cell free of charge, and it worked absolutely fantastic until....
About a week ago my microcell's 3g light started flashing, this had happened once or twice before so I performed a simple reset but it did not fix the problem like before.
and none of these fixed the problems.
My current internet is about 30mbps DL and 10mbps upload so that isn't the problem
The ports on my router are all opened, and nothing has changed to effect that
After going extensively through the forums I am kind of at a loss of what to try next. Any suggestions from people on the forums?
I am currently located in the East Bay of California (Alameda, CA)
Thanks very much.

Glad to hear that the hard reset worked. It's not uncommon after an unexpected power outage for something to get scrambled and the only way to clear the registers/memory is to do a hard reset as detailed in my Tech Guide. The hard reset forces the MicroCell back to factory defaults and if nothing was damaged during the power outage, you should be good to go.
Unfortunately AT&T support is not allowed to use my Guide as a support document because it is not an official AT&T document. There are some who do use it on the sly but by and large most of phone support just follows the script and can't, or won't, think out of the box. That's the reason why I put together the Tech Guide.

@patspec12 - the MicroCell is not compatible with satellite internet service. It is designed for land-based (DSL, cable, or fiber) internet only. That information is mentioned in the documentation and in my Tech Guide (link is in my sig line).
If you didn't change your internet connection from cable to satellite, and only use satellite for tv then there shouldn't be a problem. How do you separate your cable internet from your satellite tv? Something is not clear.
Do keep in mind that the MicroCell has been discontinued as of the end of 2017. AT&T support is supposed to last thru this year but I have my doubts. WiFi-C (WiFi Calling) is the preferred method now for poor in-home cellular coverage.

Chief, I have Dish TV and Charter cable internet. The Dish Hopper 3 receiver connects via WiFi to my Charter cable internet router. Cable internet is completely separate. While you get TV programming from the Dish satellites, an internet connection is required to take advantage of other features offered by Dish. It's the same for Directv if I recall.
I am not an AT&T employee.

@Avedis53 - understood. The only reason I asked is that the OP stated he had issues after he switched to satellite so I wasn't sure what was connected to what.
