If your signal readings (RSRP -XXX dbm) on the (Settings > Nighthawk M1 Status > Diagnostics tab) are showing poor (anything between -105 dbm and -130 dbm) it is recommend to hook up a high gain external antenna to the device for better signal quality and strength which will improve speeds greatly. We would recommend the below antennas for this device which are all easy to employ and DIY!
1. High Gain 10-12dBi MIMO Antenna for Netgear MR1100 and Netgear LB1120 (This is good for home use/ permanent installation purposes)
2. Netgear 6000450 MIMO Window Cling Antenna (This is good for mobile use as it is meant to just suction cup to a window or hang on the back side of a laptop/ computer screen)
3. Hire a contractor to install a signal booster in your home. This will not only provide your LTE with better signal, but it would also improve your cell phone signal as well.
