Tried this with my Huawei E367, works fine, I've gained about 2-3dB that considerably improved the ping and download rate, thanks for the tip :) !

I'll try something like this with old, unused satellite TV dish: remove downconverter and put the modem in its place so that the built-in modem antenna will be in focal point. Of course I'll have to put the modem in a rainproof enclosure.

I would replace the USB wire as soon as possible. Sounds like it has a break some where in the line.

it is because there is no power on the cable, it is too long to get power over usb from a computer/laptop, try to use a usb power hub and will help. Anything over 5 m is losing signal.

This is for all the unlucky people still stuck on USB adapters. USB adapters have very low range antennas in them, and like mine just did not work well enought to stay connected. I researched , tested and released my own no power booster.

The booster increased DB 2-3 which made my link work well enough to email and download. Works on any USB adapter including Wimax, LTE , 4G , 3G, even 2G .

I will have to test and see myself. I thought of that as well, but cell is much bigger and weighs too much.
