External Antenna

I own the Verizon Lte home router model ASK-RTL108. I live in the middle of nowhere, and don’t get strong cell service. I see the external antenna port, but I am not sure what type of external antenna I can use to get stronger cell service. I haven't found anything on Verizon’s website. I have found some online, but I don’t know which are compatible.

I just bought a microcell unit to boost my cellular service at home but have not installed it.  It is supposed to take my 2 bar signal and give me 4 bars at home.  Don't think this unit is supposed to be connected directly to the router though.

We would be happy to see how we can help with your microcell unit. Did the equipment come with instructions on how to install it?

Were you able to get this figured out?  I called into Verizon support, the gentleman told me he couldn't help me over the phone and I had to visit a store for support with this device.

I am getting 1, maybe 2, bars and would like to boost this signal without spending and arm and a leg by attaching an external antenna. 

 

It looks like a C9 port, but I am not positive.
