Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

Thanks man! Sadly I have no way of mounting these so I think my best option will be "rabbit ears" antennas on the back of the router.

What antennas are you using? I already have a good signal don't think I will need such a big setup but would like to explore any indoor option.

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

If you do not have whips or paddles already you can start with those. Since you mentioned being in another country it would be hard to recommend any but I am sure an Internet search would turn some up. You could look at this Forums merchant website for ideas of types. My friend is coming from the U...

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

You could try a inexpensive MIMO indoor antenna and see if it gains you anything. It might help if your modem router setup does not have internal antennas. Many modem routers don't. That is why they have whip or paddle antennas. Your cell phone likely has at least two internal and maybe 4 antennas....

Blocked by buildings, I live in a city, second floor(10 story building) so LoS is impossible, not even outdoor antennas.

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

A good test to see if an antenna will help is bring your modem to the cell tower for a speed test. Use a good quality power inverter or better use 12v from a vehicle if you have access to one. This would give you a baseline of what speed is possible with a good signal. Keep a eye on your signal to ...

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

Is there a way to tell what bands your modem is connecting to? Cell mapper is a good staring point but is often outdated information . Most cheaper modems do not have Carrier Aggregation & MiMo which are helpful for better speed. https://www.cashify.in/what-is-carrier-aggregation-how-can-it-inc...

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

The only reason I can think to get antennas is for directional antennas that can help you use one cell tower over another. Otherwise the generl point to upgraded antennas is to get good solid signal. you seem to have that already. The SINR fluctuation you mention is a bit much of a flux, but I'm su...

Re: Indoor Antenna Suggestions

Your numbers look pretty good not sure if an attendance going to help. Your modem is a Cat-7, your phone is most likely a Cat~20+. Not fair to compare the two. Make sure to use a hard Internet cable connection for your speed test. This would remove WiFi from the equation. Thanks for your reply! I w...

Indoor Antenna Suggestions

Hello guys, I bought a Huawei 4G B535-232 Route and I am looking for two external antennas to get some more speed as I can reach 100mbps on my phone a mile away from home but currently getting between 25-50 mbps. Some stats: * I get full signal. * RSRP between -82 & - 85 dBm. * SINR between 9 &a...
