Advice 1: How to strengthen signal modem Yota

Modems WiMax (in particular, the network Yota) work in the microwave range. Radiation at these frequencies it behaves like an ordinary light: it can be obscure, to focus. These properties should be used to improve reception.

Despite the similarity with light, microwave radiation differs somewhat more penetrating. It is able to pass through objects opaque to visible light, provided that they do not conduct electricity. On the other hand, due to the large wavelength, a conventional metallic mesh netting, check only a small part of visible light, can be microwave waves almost insurmountable obstacle. This applies to the metal rods in reinforced concrete. If you are in a concrete house, and especially in a construction trailer, trimmed with solid sheet metal, move the modem to the window, and the reception is much better. If the modem is connected to PC directly, use a USB extension cord, but not always, and meet the requirements of USB 2.0 standard, otherwise the data transfer rate will be somewhat less.

Microwave radiation may also be delayed and even penetrates such large objects as the neighboring house. Reflection is able to create a so-called interference pattern, consisting of local minima and maxima of the signal. To find the maximum, use a USB extension cable. Because the signal strength indicator responds to changes in the terms of reception with some delay, move the modem around the room slowly, both horizontally and vertically. Sooner or later you'll find a place where signal is significant. Please note that since the human body has an electrical conductivity, moving around the room people are able to change the shape of the interference pattern.

If the reception quality is changed suddenly, and dramatically, take the time to go to the kitchen and see what happens from there. Maybe the reception is worsening during those periods when the microwave oven is in use. It works in close area of the range, but with much more power, and if it affects the WiMaxmodem (and the usual Wi-Fi devices), it means that there is leakage radiation. It is dangerous to health and this oven would be subject to immediate repair in the workshop.

Than is longer-wavelength electromagnetic radiation, the more rough the surface is suitable for focusing. That is why a satellite dish is not polished to a mirror Shine. For Yota modem, it is also possible to manufacture the likeness of a parabolic antenna by placing it in the focus of the usual metal basin. Just send her will not to a satellite and to a base station after learning exactly where the last.

Advice 2 : How to increase the reception Yota

Coverage provider Yota is much less than that of mobile operators. The subscriber, living on the border of a zone of confident reception, we have to take steps to increase the signal level at the modem input.

Instruction
1
Do not attempt to connect to the modem any amplifiers. Power output of any wireless equipment, including standard 4G (WiMax), is limited by law. In addition, the amplifier can create out-of-band radiation at the harmonics, which is also a violation.
2
Radio waves at frequencies used for data transmission in the network Yota, are objects that can conduct current. In the house, whose walls are concrete, it makes sense to bring the laptop along with the modem to the window. Even if it does not go in the direction of the base station, the signal level may increase. You can just walk around with a laptop in the room - due to the presence of interference maxima and minima points with a high signal level can be anywhere.
3
Move the laptop to search for places of confident reception is not always convenient, but if the computer is stationary, even more so. Will solve the problem the extension to include the modem from the USB port to a distance of 2.5 meters. It needs to be USB 2.0, otherwise reduce the data transfer rate. Move the modem slowly because update of information about the quality of reception is delayed.
4
To focus the ultra high frequency radio waves, you can use a parabolic mirror, similar to those used in the satellite antennas. The best results provide the reflectors from such receptors. The modem is placed in the focus of the mirror instead of the Converter. You can use a surrogate reflectors in the form of conventional metal cans, including painted. To place the modem outside the room is impossible, because it is not sealed. To place the entire structure will have within the room. The antenna should be directed to the nearest base station of the network Yota. If you don't know where she is, pick the best direction empirically.

Advice 3 : How to connect the antenna Yota

Antenna Yota today are the best means of signal amplification. The reason for installation of such antenna and wish to strengthen your Internet connection wirelessly with the base provider to increase the speed of data transfer and amplify the signal.

All antennas can vary in power and type. Thus, when staying outside of town, close to town or in the apartment, suitable antenna panel type. It does not interfere with development of the city and tall buildings – it easily amplifies the signal and is not prone to interference. If the house has special design and it suppresses the signal, the panel antenna will also be very useful in this situation. Net-reflector antenna will be useful for the city, but near the most coverage. A parabolic antenna will help those who need a long-range signal, as they can overcome obstacles at a distance of about 9 kilometers from the main coverage area.
2
To connect the antenna Yota, first, it is necessary to determine the distance from the router to the installation location of the antenna. This will help to prevent the decrease in signal as this helps to determine the necessary cable length and number of adapters for installation of the antenna. In General, it can be estimated that deterioration of the signal at the connector will be 1.5 dB, and on every meter of the cable of 0.5 dB. Therefore, the smaller the length and the load the adapter will provide the best signal.For example, for antenna Yota with the characteristic gain of 12 dB and a cable length of five feet requires a special adapter to the modem, and the result is the gain of the signal is only 3 dB.

To avoid this falling of the signal, you can select the antenna Yota with integrated modem. Then the amplification will be carried out without interference, and will also be much easier to install such antenna.
4
There is a very easy way to boost the signal Yota. First of all, you will need to invest in an extension cord for USB. After that you need to find a spot with the best reception signal, for example, by the window. After that, connect the external antenna to the modem. There will a specialized adapter called a "pig tail". Need to open the USB connector of the modem by sliding the rear cap to the USB connector to remove it. Next, connect the left connector to the adaptor (this connector first) and fix the connection completely. If the modem has a N-connector, with the modem you can use all versions of the Yota antennas and connect them in any way.
Note
Not all antennas to enhance Yota can connect directly to the modem. For this purpose there is a special adapter, which is called "pig tail". But even so, not every antenna will provide high speed – so you should consult with experts and choose the antenna according to individual characteristics.
