 Dears;

I was trying to connect a secondary 4G antenna to the eLTE slot of the AR2204. But it is working at 30DBM. Is there any trick that I can use to increase the speed of the connection

d o a Coverage Survey. As we know the location, the first step is an on-line coverage check to see what services are available in the area. Thanks to on-line tools like www.opensignal.com, there is actual, real-time information about what coverage is where, where mobile towers are located etc. This helps in identifying the right mobile operator(s) for the specific location.
Right Antenna Placement. The router and antenna placement is essential and during installation this is optimized depending on the site layout. While traditional network routers can also be equipped with a SIM slot for wireless connectivity, the fact that these routers are placed at server room in a rack (Faraday cage!) deep inside buildings, makes this often a pointless exercise. Finding obstruction-free zones, close to windows etc. is essential inside. so that signal is strong. There are specialized tools for this, but anyone with a mobile can try this. For iPhone users, type in *3001#12345#* to go into 'Field Test' mode and see more details about your connection!
Use multiple networks. While most mobile phones/tablets don't have this option, most good 4G Network Routers not only have two SIM slots, but also two modems to operate two signals and connections independently. This protects the user from the effects of 'cell breathing' and cell overload, whereby the signal or throughput is reduced by the network tower itself as it load balances users and traffic. By being able to connect to multiple towers and operators simultaneously, the router can connect to the most optimal one.
Take it Outside. For most locations outside of metro areas far away from network towers, there is no point of placing equipment and antennas inside and the right step is to move outdoor. For these situations a terrain survey helps to calculate the specific distance, terrain layout, obstacles and calculate right antenna model and placement angle for optimal connection.
Use an Amplifier. For the remote sites where one uses an outside antenna, a second trick is applied, a signal amplifier (booster), an additional device in between the antenna and the router to clean and amplify the signal before passing it on to the router.

Hi,
you can increase the SNR by improving the device capability, for example, increasing the antenna gain and lowering the equivalent noise temperature of the receiver.

Hi @tesfama
are you using two SIM cards?

Share (another person's post or other online content) with one's own followers or friends on social media so as to raise awareness of an issue, event, etc. 'we've been getting the word out, signal-boosting their petition, and generally making ourselves useful'

Hi @tesfama,
What do you mean about "it is working at 30DBM", and would you please provide the LTE slot mode, and the mode of antenna.

Thanks.

I meant that it should have high SNR. I want to increase the Signal to noise ratio
