Boosting broadband access from a usb modem? Answered
How can I boost my broadband access from my usb modem? I am about 2 mi from nearest cell tower and I'm getting about 2 bars of national access to about 2 bars of broadband access (slow to medium speed). When I am in town by towers I get full 4 bars of broadband, (speed is phenomenal!) Is there anyway to boost my signal from home? Can I "ghetto" rig an antenna wire from usb modem antenna to the tv antenna on top of house? Any help appreciated... I have the USB720 modem from Verizon, and a new Dell Inspiron 1520 loaded with Windows Vista. Attached is modem specs from Verizon wireless. Thanx, The Revelator P.S. Hardline/fiber optics is not an option here, only cell phone access at house.
