Re: Recommend a 4G WiMax Antenna?

I'm not familiar with your specific equipment but it appears to me that the first thing you need to get sorted out is your connectivity.

Without a good, solid physical and electrical connection, I doubt you will ever get your system to work right. Were it me, that is the FIRST thing I would look into...

Best of luck.

thanks for response. its this antenna:

»www.ebay.com/itm/Sierra-Wireless···e4883e67

and they(Cellgear - USA) claim its approved by verizon, sprint, alltel, etc. and supposedly its designed to fit Sierra modems. i got this thing in the mail and i thought it was a joke. paid $35 for what looks like a cheap POS one dollar knock-off from China. and if i look at the signal thru Sprint SmartView it just doesn't change no matter whether i plug it in or not or even remove the antenna from the area, just doesn't do anything. signal strength is -80 to -84
