You could try Netgear 6000450 MIMO Antenna - https://www.amazon.com/Netgear-6000450-MIMO-Antenna-Connectors/dp/B00DN3J03O but it is meh, you need to position it towards tower and preferably outside home or at window for peak performance (walls degrade cellular signal, if you use it inside/mount it inside home behind walls, you will notice little to no gain. Also, look at Amazon reviews some people actually get lower performance if they face the antenna not directly towards tower)

If you have enough money and own your home, you can try looking at /u/brobot_ setup

EDIT: I removed battery and left it plugged to USB wall adapter 24/7, with battery it heats up a lot and used to show overheating/stopped charging notification a lot for me.

Can anyone help me with my rural internet plan? Not super FIRE related, but I know a lot of folks here have probably encountered the same obstacle.

I'm in an area that can only get HughesNet, with their lovely 24-month contract only plans and low caps. I'm trying to daisy chain an alternative and could use some help!

At the location I can get decent LTE coverage from Verizon. They also offer an "unlimited' plan that drops your speed 4.8Mbps after 15Gigs. Not ideal, but still tolerable.

What'd I'd like to do is this:

  • Verizon JetPack 7730L + An Antenna

  • Verizon Single-Device Beyond Unlimited Service ($85/month)

  • Pair The Jetpack to a Mesh Router, as my "single" device for full-home coverage

  • Enjoy the 21st Century

    In theory it sounds straight-forward, but with only a USB out, how do I properly link the JetPack to the base router of the mesh system?

That cradle point is a module that goes into their modem. That’llbe an expensive touch. I haven’t used the other modems you listed.

Move up to Verizon's unlimited plan for 15gigs. Get a hotspot device with dual antenna ports so that you connect a MIMO antenna. Verizon's 8800l device is an example. I find that their hotspots are getting pretty good at finding a 4G signal and half the time now I turn off my WeBoost because it's not really needed anymore. This is the antenna I use, you just stick it to window, and it often works better than the WeBoost... https://www.amazon.com/Netgear-6000450-MIMO-Antenna-Connectors/dp/B00DN3J03O/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?keywords=4g+mimo+antenna&qid=1568051973&s=gateway&sprefix=4g+mimo&sr=8-4

1 of Netgear 6000450 MIMO Antenna with 2 TS-9 Connectors

Also have 2 directional antenna setups using dual Wilson Electronics Wideband Directional Antenna 700-2700 MHz, 50 Ohm (314411)

I only got the netgear from amazon; but those should still be the same models.

u/JKSpinning · 2 pointsr/ATT

While I haven't used it myself, Netgear does offer their own antenna that I've heard good things about. It's for sale on Amazon and isn't too pricy:

u/etronz · 2 pointsr/NoContract

Most of the mobile hotspots have TS9 RF ports. At that point it is all about finding what fits and your specific use case.

This is a good place to start https://www.amazon.com/Netgear-6000450-MIMO-Antenna-Connectors/dp/B00DN3J03O and if you are a little more serious, a tripod, along with a TS9 male to N male adapter, and this antenna https://www.amazon.com/Electronics-Wideband-Directional-700-2700-314411/dp/B00J14YEHQ/ can pull in signals that normally are unusable.

u/blong2020 · 1 pointr/ATT

Sorry for the slow update I was out out town. Anyways I purchased this antenna on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DN3J03O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

​

And now for some reason it's doing the Carrier Aggregation with the two bands I have setup in Putty. I thought this was very strange if I remove this antenna I loose the CA. My RSRP went from -105 to around -100 and my Quality from around 40 to around 45-50dbm. See the picture above to see the CA between bands B12 and B2. if you guys have any questions on commands and how to set it up please let me know or post here I'm getting more familiar with it the time I've used it. If someone can explain why it's CA now with the new antenna and not the internal that would be awesome!

u/Bumbaclaat · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I've heard good things about antennas like this which can plug into the ts9 antenna ports on some portable modems ( like the ZTE Warp Connect )

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DN3J03O/

But if you are interested in a better modem and more serious antennas that can actually do 100mbps or more, check out www.ltefix.com and the LTE hacks group on facebook

u/ITforSmallBiz · 1 pointr/tmobile

I've bought several different USB modems with terrible results. Recently I discovered an LTE device that goes to Ethernet instead of USB making it even more universal as a backup Internet connection for dual-wan routers and was super happy when I tested it out (with a T-Mobile SIM): Netgear 4G LTE Modem

My signal strength was okay but attaching an antenna added a few more megabits to my download speed as well.

I don't know if that helps or not but I'm definitely not messing with USB modems anymore after discovering how well this device worked for me, and my clients whether they're using SonicWall or ZyXEL or anything else with an RJ-45 port.

I have used this:

I found it to make almost no difference in RSSI (and speed, as one would expect given that fact). Someone else can comment, but I think you may lose 4x CA when you use an external antenna, as it disables the internal antennae when connected.

This was in a remote location with HSPA+ on Band 2.

(On a related note, if anyone with any power/knowledge happens to read this, can you please tell the folks at Northeast Wireless to chug a fatty. And maybe drop a quick explanation here of why they exist at all? AT&T just forgot to buy spectrum in northern new england and they're holding you hostage, or, wtf... Since it's not really AT&T does that mean no FirstNet?)

u/FoN925 · 1 pointr/PS4

Thank you! I seriously cannot say that enough. I've been calling the only ISP in my county for almost ten years now, begging them to extend their service to my house and they refuse, presumably because they wouldn't make enough money off of me to cover the costs of extending their coverage to include me. It is bullshit. If I lived one mile away, in any direction, I'd have internet.

Anyway, an issue:

The Netgear 6000450 MIMO Antenna you said you have, and which I should get, is 'Currently Unavailable' on Amazon. I assume I could substitute that antenna for something else, but is there anything in particular I need to look for when deciding on which antenna to purchase?

Also, did you mean to say there shouldN'T be a contract since I already have all the necessary equipment? Honestly, at this point I don't really care, I just want internet and if I have to sign a contract I will.

Another question regarding the part where you said:

Make sure you get the right sim size for it I did this over the phone. They won't be able to locate the IMEI immediately because it isn't a at&t device and had to escalate me to a supervisor to get permission activate it.

You told me at the beginning of your reply to write the LB1120's IMEI down when I get it, but then you say AT&T employees wont be able to find the IMEI at first because it isn't an AT&T device. Are you talking about a different IMEI or device than the one I will already have written down?

Also, did you mean routers are unlimited UNlike phones, eg. phone hotspot tethering?

As for the actual setting everything up after activation part, I feel like I can handle that pretty easily. I've had less-than-stellar experiences with AT&T in the past when dealing with super simple issues, so I'm not really looking forward to dealing with them on a complicated issue TBH, but I'm sure I can get it figured out.

Again, thanks times ten million for answering my questions. I now have hope for my digital future thanks to you!

u/Midniteoyl · 1 pointr/ATT

I don't have much experience with the external antennas as I don't need them. However, my kid who lives in mountainous California says this antenna helped him. Just use the signal strength meter on the Nighthawk's diagnostic page to find the best placement.

-

Also remember that LTE shows as a lower signal than we are use to, so 2 bars would be at least 3 bars for 3g/4g.

u/eshock92 · 1 pointr/VerizonUDP

Hey bud, it's been a while. I was just looking over all of your suggestions. Long story short, I finally switched most of my lines to the FebUDP since we'll only be paying around $35/line after I get all 10 lines fired up. I kept one of my GUDP lines and put it on the loyalty plan with Verizon to use as a home wifi solution. I actually came across a guy and he sold me 4 6620L's and 3 5510's for $20! 2 of them still have working sim cards with 2gb/month lol.

I set up the 6620L but unfortunately my signal is not so hot. I manage to get 3 bars, and speeds up to 10mb download. Usually it is around 5 mb, which isn't too great. I heard good things about the AC791L and I started watching out for them on ebay. Do you have any input on how I can get a better, stronger signal before I go ahead and do some of the router stuff? I came across a few other things that might work as router solutions. Any experience?

Thanks a lot in advance!

u/cjbrigol · 1 pointr/ATT

I ordered this. Like I said, mixed reviews, but all the antennas had that. I think sometimes it just won't change your signal. If your signal is too weak it won't help, but also if you already have a good signal, it obviously isn't going to make it much better...

u/soundman1024 · 1 pointr/ATT

I've been having the exact same experience with my Nighthawk M1. Was seeing 40-60Mbps, now I'm seeing about 4-6Mbps. It's been falling for the last 3-5 weeks maybe. I'll look into my signal stats this evening, but it's very interesting to hear someone else with the Nighthawk M1 is having a similar experience. I'll also try pulling my antenna to go from strong 2x2 MIMO to a weaker 4x4 MIMO.

I'm using a Netgear Aircard antenna and a UniFi gateway/switch/access point. Adding the access point roughly doubled my speeds (30-40 up from 15-20) and the antenna gave another 50% for the 40-60Mbps speeds. The gateway and switch have no impact on speed, they just allowing me to connect a Hue hub, put my Roku on a wire, add a PiHole for whole network ad blocking, that kind of thing. The PiHole is a nice speed boost on LTE internet btw.
