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 :) !

Modem could not connect and disconnect frequently

some times show USB not recognize.. then what can I do?

tgreen8 (author)  lovelueng1 month ago

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

but that cable is new. I bought this 7 meter long from market and connect it with laptop usb but it frequently disconnected...

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.
