Decent External Antenna for Huawei B311
« on: April 03, 2021, 04:48:39 PM »

Hi fellas

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a cheapish antenna for a B311 4G router please.
I know I can get one for indoor use for 5 from fleabay (are they any use) but am guessing an outdoor one would give better reception.
The router only has one connection point at the back, many thanks.

If its even worth it depends on if you can get line of sight to the mast.

You'd likely get much better results just upgrading to a higher model router.  My speed doubled when I upgraded to the Hauwei B535-232 due to carrier aggregation support.

Granted I was on the tiny pocket router before that, but even with a strong signal that was limited due to the technology being older.
