how can you boost reception quality and/or speed. New pc new to mobile broadband. when trying to download movie from netflix. always disconnects after taking forever for buffering.. Will be able to watch movie for 2 minutes. then get message thaat internet connection is slowing, need to adjust, then it goes back to buffering which takes 20 minutes, then starts movie, watch for 2 minutes, then same message that connection is slowing, ......
even when visiting a regular internet site it sometimes is very slow. I do live in a remove area of Duncansville PA not sure if this is a coverage issue or if there is something i can buy to boost reception
I also live in a remote area too. I have a Yagi antenna and a Wilson Electronics 3 watt booster. The antenna Poles can be bought at lowes or Homedepot ( look where the Fence supplies are- the poles will fit together) all together my antenna pole is 56 foot tall. If you already get a signal a wilson booster and an outside antenna should work fine no need for a tall antenna pole.
I have provided some general information below that may help.
Speeds are going to be dependent on signal strength and type of signal (1X or EVDO). I would recommend the following to obtain the best possible signal for your location.
1. Check the signal strength. I have provided the instructions below:
2. Try relocating the device (something in the immediate area may be hindering its signal).
3. Try rebooting / restarting the device.
4. Try completing an activation. Instructions below:
-Open VZ Access manager
-Select the Options tab at the top
