How To Improve The Cellular Signal To Your AT&T Netgear Nighthawk® M5 Mobile Hotspot Router [MR5200]
If you have an issue getting a good cellular signal to the Netgear Nighthawk M5 MR5200, we can help. We offer several different options for boosting the cell signal to the Nighthawk.
Attach 1 or 2 External Antennas
The MR5200 Nighthawk M5 Pro has two TS-9 antenna ports as pictured. You can connect an antenna to one or both ports.
A good, inexpensive option to improving the signal to the is to attach an external antenna. Connecting 2 Antennas (1 to each port) may help give a more consistent signal. To be most effective, the external antenna(s) should be mounted where the cellular signal is best. This is usually near a window or outside wall - outdoors, away from under the building structure is almost always better.
* The best antenna is the Wilson Wideband Directional Antenna. This antenna should be mounted outdoors and pointed towards the nearest AT&T tower.
A small, more portable option would be one of the small omni directional antenna below.
Bands & Frequencies *
Not all antennas and signal booster systems support all cellular frequencies - especially newer 5G bands & frequencies. Before choosing an antenna or booster, read each product description to make sure your device and frequencies are supported.
Powered Signal Boosters
Cellular Signal booster systems work by capturing the signal outdoors and repeating the signal indoors. They have the added benefit of boosting the cell signal for more than one device including cell phones and hotspots. We offer Building Signal Booster Systems and Mobile Signal Booster Systems for 3G & 4G. We have a few recommended systems listed below.
