The Verizon F256VW Home Phone Connect gives you all the benefits of a wired land line connection, but it is more convenient and cost-efficient. It provides high-quality, clear voice service just like a land line, but on Verizon's Wireless network instead.
Home Phone Connect With F256 Device
If your Verizon Home Phone Connect service uses the F256VW device, boosting the cellular signal to it can mean fewer missed and dropped calls. Boost the cellular signal to your F256 with an external antenna or amplifier.
How Do I Connect the F256 to an External Antenna?
The F256 has an antenna mounted on it which is attached via an SMA connector. In most cases, the standard antenna works fine. However, in cases where the Verizon cellular signal is weak, you can boost the signal by adding an antenna that you can mount outside, where the signal is better. You can also add an amplifier if the signal is very weak outside.
The F256 has an SMA Female connector. To connect an outside antenna to the F256, you will need a antenna cable with a SMA Male connector. We offer a couple of antenna, cable and amplifier options. In some cases a SMA adapter needed to attach is included but not always. Make sure you purchase cable, antenna or adapter that has an SMA Male connector.
