In most cases, Your WISP's installers will mount a small pizza box-type antenna/radio on your roof, on an exterior wall, or within your attic, and run the antenna cable inside your home. This cable connects to a subscriber unit, which is then plugged into your computer or network via an Ethernet network cable or Ethernet network cable and network hub. Alternately, a USB adapter may be used depending on the WISP. An average install takes from one to two hours.
In remote locations from the tower, your provider may need to use higher gain equipment than the norm to achieve adequate signal for the system to work properly. Submitted by Superdog1
