I get decent speeds but the constant disconnections or pauses is what the problem is. I imagine it is because my signal is so poor it keeps dropping off?
Yes or the towers footprint shrinks due to high use...either way an antenna would help you.
I am going to try a coffee can antenna today. It seems I don't even need to attach it with an antenna cable? I can just put my modem inside of it, according to the photos on Jim's website.
Yup I've seen it work myself... make sure its a metal normal sized coffee can... a friend of mine told me they didn't work and he had one of those plastic coffee containers
*EDIT* I wanted to add there is only one Virgin Mobile tower in my area. However, there are a couple of other towers intercepting or nearly intercepting my tower's line of sight.
remember with virgin mobile and boost your are looking for sprint towers.
