How to prevent my router (D-Link AC1200 LTE Router DW-953) which is using a 4G sim card for data from being identified by an ISP?

The router has the current Firmware Version V01.02.3.045, with no VPN or L2TP setup option.

I'd like to know how to prevent the ISP from identifying my device.

    The question is not fully clear to me. But it sounds like your ISP is having a policy of only allowing specific devices on their network or to make sure that a SIM is bound to a specific device - and that you try to bypass this policy for your own gain. This kind of question is off-topic here. – Steffen Ullrich May 17 at 6:19
  • Are you basically facing the same problem that people use "unlocked" cell phones for? – forest May 17 at 6:33
  • @forest Hi, my router use a sim card to access data, my ISP is currently able to identify the device information – Jones May 17 at 6:35

    @forest: The OP clearly said in a previous edit that the ISP is blocking the access if he uses a different router which in my opinion suggests that the OP wants to bypass an explicit policy. The OP now removed this part from the question which makes it open to interpretation why the OP wants to do this. This in essence makes an an XY problem, i.e. the OP explains what he wants to do but no longer the underlying problem - probably knowing that if the underlying problem is explained that the question gets closed. Based on this I stay to my vote. – Steffen Ullrich May 17 at 6:47

    @Jones: "I'd like to know how to prevent the router from being identified by ISP since they can detect device information" - You effectively say with this that you want to prevent Y since ISP can do Y. You don't say why Y is a problem for you in the current edit of your question. But you said it in your initial form of the question: the ISP will block you if you use a a specific device. Thus, you want to bypass restrictions for your own gain which like I've already said is off-topic here. – Steffen Ullrich May 17 at 7:47
