Slightly off topic, what type of antenna do I need for the Huawei router and where do I get it in CT? Have an account at Miro

Thanks

I am only getting 8mb down and 6mb up and suspect it might be a poor signal. Most times all 3 lights are on, but right now only one. The transmitter is about 800m from me line of sight

Edit: Miro only have single pole YAGIs for LTE

Buy from poynting direct, poynting Xpol 6 antenna. From otto.co.za you buy 2 x ts9 to sma adapters. Then you are sorted. And of course pole and bracket for mounting against wall, this you can buy from ellies.

Test done in Centurion. Following the Rain test result above done 10m away from the router I moved to 2m away and got a 30Mps download and 0.6Mps upload.

The only drawback so far for the Rain Router is the weak WiFi signal. My TP-Link ADSL router gives me a signal even 40m away from my house.

Use the TP-Link as an AP then? Remember to enable DHCP relay.

Get your self a Antenna, your speed would double more like triple in value.
All i Use on my side is a Old Phone cable as a Antenna.

I also get barely one bar on my router, that's why i use a home made antenna that works for me, don't have the extra cash now to buy the outside Antenna.

With my Home made Antenna I get 5 Mbps to 10 Mbps down.
