    Yep - that is a product for Europe and will most likely not work here. You should have one antenna mounted vertically and the other horizontally at approx 300mm apart on one pole i.e. one antenna above the other. I have this setup and it works great. Good luck.

    I have been blessed by a person on myBB that has hooked my up with one of these brackets that i'm busy testing , and can say alot easier to mount antennas and not have to worry about distance between vertical and horizontal. takes up alot less space vertically , looks alot more stream lined. and the best part , i doubled my speed i was getting and solid as a rock. just need more time now to test and align.

    There is a company in Anderbolt. Boksburg called Telscrew, they can normally make you any bracket.

    Also not sure if you can see what the SINR looks like..
    Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice.

    I've got the B315 model so I'm not familiar with that unit.
    I suspect that if you can't see it on the screen that you're looking at, you won't be able to find it.

    If this is the case, then try aim to get the best possible values for RSRP & RSRQ by moving the device around.

    You could buy an weatherproof cabinet for the device and leave it outside- I'm sure this will work out cheaper than an external antenna.
    I would then run an Ethernet cable inside to either a switch (to give you additional Ethernet ports) or to an access point.

    no i wouldn't run a cable. the wireless is very good on the router i tested it thoroughly with international gaming to the UK and local servers. Excellent

    pointing the antenna (external) in the right direction makes all the difference. I noticed a drop of 1mpbs for ever 3 degrees that I was out. Also note that you can point it up and down and not just from side to side.
    My signal stats were very bad (similar to some of you), but after using a Poynting XPOL6 I got really good gains... and I'm technically outside of the coverage area for LTE.
    Here is my signal stats now:
    Name:  Screenshot_20171221-071301[1].jpg

Size:  124.0 KB

    Summary :
    Router : Huawei B315
    LTE : Rain
    ISP : Webafrica
    speed highest : 36 mbps
    speed ave : 18 mbps
    speed lowest : 11 mpbs
    upload and download speed is about the same 1:1 ratio (sometimes upload is faster than download)
    Jitter : 2
    Ping : 18

    Again... I'm OUTSIDE of the RAIN coverage area (about 200 meters)
