Netgear Nighthawk or any EE mobile broadband routers connect to external antenna

Does the newly advertised Netgear NIghthawk M2, or any of the EE mobile broadband routers have a connection to fit an external antenna cable?

We have no mobile signal and very weak broadband over BT copper wire, so roof antenna in the hope if picking up 4G signal is only hope.

Trying to find a router to connect to external 4G antenna

Any thoughts?

Hi @martin781 

 

The EE 4G router (white one) connects to an external antenna. Have you tried out you 4G connectivity as no point investing if your signal is weak.

 

Thanks

That’s great, the pictures don’t show any ports, which are presumably at the back of the router.

I have no way of testing for 4G for certain , but close neighbour (well close for rural area!) installed similar with good results.

Kind regards,

Martin

Any info about connecting external anenna to it?

Presume the connections are SMA.

Are here two SMA connector ports?
