B311s-220 external aerial suggestions

Navigator

Evening, 

 

Ordered 3 home mobile after the salesmen confirmed there would be two external aerial connections on the router id get.

 

Turns out the one that turned up in the post only has one sma connection on the back. 

 

So the external aerial I was going to get has now figuratively gone out the window.

 

Any aerial suggestions for the b311 would be greatly appreciated as I need to get the connection as strong as possible.

 

Thanks

What is your current signal strength with the router up high?

Where do you have the router placed? If you could place it on a high window sill and see if the speed increases?

There isn't a B311 on site you sure it's not B315? I have the newest B525 and that has two antennas.

Bottom says b311s

 

Does 3 reply on here at all? I'm just wondering if with the big influx due to the unlimited deal have they run out of the normal routers and shipping others instead ?

 

 

Can't seem to force 4g only either, should be able to get 800mhz 4g fine here.

 

And as far as height is concerned I've tried it higher doesent make much difference 

 

I'm just trying to work out if I can fit a correct external with only one sma 

 

I thought they had to be crossed and have two wires 

 

Thanks again

Is it worth trying this before spending a fortune on new router ?

Do a test and see if you can get faster speeds if you move router outside
