Netgear Nighthawk m5 5100 modification for external antennas

This is a company out of rhe UK that modifies the m5 so you can add 3 SMA external antenna connections to the m5. Was wondering if it was worth modifying and is there a PERSON or company in the United States that can do it?

Thanks

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

There is a lava 8008 tv antenna and weboost antenna for cell boost on the same side. Would that affect it? These 2 units are both outside.

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

So I was able to finally install the antenna today. I placed the unit in the attic with 30ft of LMR 400 with a 6 inch ts9 adapter. Im not seeing any difference in speed with the unit connected or not. Not sure if im doing something wrong. Im using an m5 5100 pro. The cell tower is less than a 1/2 mi...

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

So I decided to go with the single antenna with 2 Mimo connections built on it. But i did have an installation question. The cell tower is less than a 1/2 mile away in heavy woods. Would i see much of a difference in speed if I mounted the unit in an attic or outside? The height will be about equal ...

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

You mean like one of these: https://www.weboost.com/products/314411 I started with one of these and then purchased a second one to run in mimo config. They are SLIGHTLY worse then the The Wireless Haven ones, at least on paper, but also can be found for about $50 each. Yes it’s very similar but I th...

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

I’ve looked into sending my m5 to Britain to add 3 additional SMA ports. I think they charge like a 150 to modify it. I found it on eBay by typing in nighthawk m5 modification. Below is the info. Not sure if this would help any. The modification will give you 5x external antenna connections (4x 4G a...

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

I looked up the cell tower it’s less than a mile but it’s through heavy woods. It’s showing bands 5, 13 and 66. Are any of those 5G bands? Not sure what constitutes 5G but my router switches from lte to 5G. Hope that helps.

Re: Single or 2 15dbi mimo antennas is there a difference?

I’m using Verizon and its locking on b66. My speeds are between 3 and 5 on downloads and 1 to 2 on uploads with a weboost Yargi antenna on the outside. Also at times it’s switching to 5G as well. Not sure if that is n261.

Re: RG6 cabling verus RG58

Yes RG6 is 75 ohm with lower loss. Which was why i was asking. Im using it with a weboost and was going to connect it directly to a netgear nighthawk. So what issues will you have if you use rg6?

Re: IMEI- FID-TTL-FIRMWARE modification on data devices

System isn’t allowing me to PM you. But I’m interested in using your services with a Verizon postpaid tablet account on a netgear nighthawk m1.
My email is [*moderator edit for privacy*] or if you can pm me that would be great..

Thanks
