Internet - Antenna

I recently purchased a ATT Netgear wifi hotspot device. I used it for the first time over TG week. It worked perfectly for laptop and TV. I want to add an antenna for those locations that arent so great.

For those who have this setup, what antenna setup are you using ? I see Weboost but they are almost $500.00

* I use this for work so I dont have to take vacay days off.

I have had three We Boost units over the years, They work great-- The $$ hurts on the front end, but you wont regret it.

Dont waste the money on a weboost or hiboost etc.. they do NOT boost the full signal. Going with something like this will actually get you a better signal. https://www.amazon.com/Netgear-60004...s%2C213&sr=8-1

Or even better would be an external antenna, like two Yagi's. You would need a pole and cables but will give a even better signal (both send and receive). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B2D6QL6Z...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

Or just spend the money on a Pepwave or InstyConnect. But once you go with a better setup you will not look back on boosters etc...

Tom- I have used Weboost for years in back countery outings, they have worked great. They do boost the signal- I have gone many times from barely able to text, to face time using the boost. I bought my first one in 2011, (it is dual band, now obsolete) my second in 2018, and my third this year.

The problem with the weboost is that I bought one as a cell booster and it didnt work so good
