Advice 2: How to improve reception Yota
The use of mobile Internet is the innovation which is already appreciated by many people throughout Russia. The operator Yota, providing broadband Internet access on the territory of several Russian cities by standard WiMax, quickly gained popularity. But the signal quality is not always high, often the reception is poor, and sometimes non-existent. You can try to improve reception of the modem Yota, selecting the optimal location, but a more effective method is to buy an antenna signal booster that can work even in the car.
You will need
- USB extension cable
- Suction Cup
- Antenna-signal booster WiMax
Despite the fact that the Yota modem connects to the USB port of your computer if you use it at home, then take the time to stick it directly. Better to buy a USB extension cable that reduces signal quality and has a good capacity. This is important, because if before purchase you had slow Internet because of bad connection, now it can slow poor quality extension cable.
Fasten one end of the extension cable into the USB port of your computer and the other end put it on the window or in another area of the apartment where a good signal reception. Walk with the laptop or with the extender inserted into it with Yota modem, to discover a place that is ideal for a permanent stay. Attach the modem to the window is very simple with a conventional suction Cup. You can also use double sided sticky tape.
If these simple measures aren't enough for you, signal is still weak, it is necessary to purchase additional equipment. WiMax antenna can help to boost the signal Yota network, making your job that much more enjoyable.
People who use the Internet Yota in the car, also do not have other choice, except buying an antenna amplifier. This effective tool during car trips in the city do not suffer from the deterioration of the reception network, even if you leave the coverage area.
If you are outside the coverage area of the network Yota, but at some distance from it, then try to catch the signal using the antenna. Often where conventional modems do not catch, antenna cope, and 4G Internet you will work.
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.
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.
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.
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.
