Does anyone know what external connector the E5776 has?
Is it a CRC9 or TS-9 connector? Some sites are reporting CRC9 and others TS-9.
Apparently these connectors look the same but are different (one skinnier than the other).
I don't want to get the wrong connector when buying my Yagi antenna....

Think this connector has different names. Huawei woudn't use different connectors on the same model.

I agree; they wouldn't use different connectors ... but which is the connector that they are using because these sites show pictures of the 2 connectors and they look very different?

It seems Huawei is switching to a new connector.
There is confusion around CRC9 and TS9, I thought there are the same. From German Web site http://www.brennpunkt-srl.de/geraeteliste UMTS.html you can gather more information.
There is confusion here too. :)

Quoting from my saved Web page:
"Huawei-Karten E600, E612, E620, E630, E660, EC321, E160, E169 (CRC-9 Stecker, CRS5001 Buchse von SMK)"

Actually CRS5001-3702F is TS9 series according to http://www.nvtl.com/index.php/download_file/view/665/

Current Web page changes this to read:
"Huawei-Karten und Sticks (folgende Geräte benötigen einen CRC-9 Stecker, in den Geräten ist eine CRS5001 Buchse von SMK)"

Still confusing, but this Web site is very informative. They list new Hawei modems with TS9 connector.

Difference between CRC9 (probably older TS9 series) and a new TS9:
- CRC9 receptable (on the device) external tube size is 2mm, while new TS9 is 2.5mm.
- Tube on TS9 has a grove giving feedback click when inserting plug.
- Also a tube is not 100% round, has a cut on sides.

EDIT:
From SMK catalogue:
TS-9 series apply to some "xxxx" models of plugs and sockets:
- CRS5001-xxxxF receptable
- CRC9001-xxxxF plug

So I wonder where CRC9 name comes from. :)

There is three type antenna connector for HUAWEI devices: CRC9, TS9 and SMA. CRC9 interface suite for the 3G devices the one peak speed under 21Mbps, TS9 interface compatible for the terminal supports speak speed >=21Mbps, SMA connector accordingly to the home gateway.
I had taken an E5776 antenna, it seems to the latest HUAWEI antenna edition, helpful gets not only 4G LTE but also improve the 3G signal, i using it for my E5776 and the older E587, all is well....

Hi Tomas_LB

I also have a E5776 wifi router, where can I buy the antenna?
I'm getting 3 bars on 4G, hopefully it might improve.
