[Troubleshooting] I am within 5 miles of three clear wire towers

I am located between three towers on in mansfield tx, one burleson tx, on just north in kennedale tx. there are spots of service all around me, assuming from high gain antennas. will a high gain antenna help me ? can I receive 4g wimax from clearwire if I connect an external antenna thats omni directional and receive signal?

Re: [Troubleshooting] I am within 5 miles of three clear wire to

If you go to the clear coverage map and enter your address, are you in a service area? I am over 5 miles from the tower I get service from. Per the Clearwire service map, I am in a fringe area, but I get great speeds. I have my Series M modem mounted in a shelf near the ceiling on the 2nd floor. The only mod I have is a home made corner reflector behind the modem. (12 X 24 sheet of stainless steel from Lowes with a 45 degree bend. Crude, but it gives a clearly measurable gain in signal) I would try that first before spending money on an antenna. If it does not work, then you move up... Good luck.
