Last time we discussed here-> http://www.jcmiras.net/surge/p239.htm a method to increase your Globe wimax signal strength, download speed and stability using a reflector.
Here, we’ll discuss a pretty simpler way to increase your Globe Wimax strength. All you need is a rope, yes, a rope. Here is the procedure;
1. Disconnect your external antenna to your Wimax modem. As discussed here -> http://www.jcmiras.net/surge/p239.htm, you don’t need that external antenna. Besides, antenna is prone to lightning strike!
2. Securely tie your modem using a rope (because you’re going to hang it). See picture below on how I tied my Globe Wimax modem.
3. Hang your modem to the top-most part of your window. Please refer again to the picture below on how I did it. Off-course, since your modem is “hanging around” you will need a wifi router to make internet connection to your computer, and an extension wire.
4. Rotate the modem and fix it to a position with the best signal strength.
From I crippling strength of around 60%, after doing this technique, I managed to achieve a signal strength of 100%, consistently.
Important note: Please make sure that there is a base station in your modem’s line-of-site, otherwise, you might not get the signal strength performance that I got. Also, this might only work perfectly if your window is atleast two stories high.
