Hotspot MiFi Signal Improvement

hotspot with antennaHow To Boost A Cellular Signal To A Hotspot

netgear mbr1210

There are a number of ways to improve the cell signal to your Hotspot or MiFi Hotspot device. Improving the cell signal to your device will boost Internet download and upload speeds.

Attach External Antenna Option

Mounting an external cellular antenna (preferably outside your building or vehicle) and connecting it to your hotspot is a low cost but very effective method of boosting your cell signal.

Hotspot and Antenna

Most Hotspots come with one or more external antenna ports. Some have a port for 3G and another for 4G. Unfortunately, not all hotspots have external antenna ports. For these, you'll need a cell signal repeater type system that takes the signal outdoor, amplifies it through a powered signal booster, then rebroadcasts the signal via an indoor antenna. See "Powered Signal Boosters" below.

Connecting an antenna is usually easy. Just match the antenna connector with connector type on your device. For those devices that do not have standard connectors, we have specific antenna adapters.

External Antenna Adapter

The typical components required to connect a hotspot to an external antenna are:

  • External Antenna Adapter or Standard Connector,
  • Coax Cable,
  • Cellular Antenna.

We have adapters for many hotspot devices so go here for Hotspot Signal Booster Products.

 

Using Your Cell Phone As A Hotspot

Many cell phones, iPhone's, Android Phones, smartphones, etc can be used as a Hotspot device. They can provide Internet service to other devices close by such as a laptop, PC, iPad or tablet. Improving the cellular signal to your phone, can give you faster 3G and 4G Internet speeds. Most phones do not have ports that enable you to connect an external antenna directly to them. However, we have powered amplifiers that can boost cell signals over small or large areas without attaching to your phone. An inexpensive option is the Wilson Sleek Signal Booster.

We also have other options here: Building Signal Boosters or Vehicle Signal Boosters.

The system works by taking the outside signal, amplify it then rebroadcast the signal inside. Systems are available for vehicles and buildings.
