Signal Improvement Solutions (Cellular)
AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) includes 2 antenna ports to attach external cellular antennas. See below for different options for high gain and high performance indoor and outdoor antennas to improve the signal strength and indoor coverage. Additionally, see below for RF bidirectional amplifiers/ distributed antenna systems/ repeaters/ small cells to further improve indoor coverage without directly attaching pigtail/ cable the device.

Pre-Configured Outdoor Cellular Antenna Kits

See below for the most popular LTE antenna kits to boost the signal of your AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S). These kits include cables, lightning protection, and all required pigtails/ adapters. If none of these pre-configured kits works for you, see below for customized solutions.

Pre-Configured Antenna Kits
Outdoor Direction Yagi Antenna Kits (RECOMMENDED) with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

12 dBi Directional Yagi Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. Slightly larger than Panel (dimensions: 35" x 9" x 2") but higher gain.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFWY12-AC815S-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Outdoor Directional Panel Antennas Kits with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

10 dBi Directional Panel Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. More compact than Yagi (dimensions: 26" x 13" x 5") but lower gain.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFWP10-AC815S-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Outdoor Omnidirection Antenna Kits with 20 ft Cable with 50 ft Cable

9 dBi Omni-directional Antenna kit for 698-2700 MHz operation. ONLY recommended if have no dominant signal from specific direction.

Also available with 100 ft cable RFW0M9-AC815S-100 or see below for custom configuration.

Cellular Repeaters/ Bi-Directional Amplifiers

Because the AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) device has an external antenna port you could use the high gain external antenna kits above to boost your signal. However, if your outdoor signal is very weak, or you require a very long cable run to get from the outdoor antenna to the device (long runs lead to large signal loss) consider using an RF bidirectional amplifier/ repeater suitable for the supported bands and cellular operator to boost your indoor coverage:

LTE Antenna Boosters/ RF Bidirectional Amplifiers/ Repeaters/ Relays

Customize your solution

STEP 1: Your AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) operates on these frequency bands: LTE B2 (1900 MHz) LTE B4 (1700 MHz) LTE B5 (850 MHz) LTE B12 (700 MHz) LTE B17 (700 MHz) LTE B29 (700 MHz) LTE B30 (2300 MHz). Determine what frequency bands your operator uses here. Then determine compatible antennas based on what your device supports and what your operator supports here.

 

STEP 2: Determine the cable length you need from the outdoor antenna to the AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) and configure your length here (select N-Male on both ends)

 

STEP 3: Determine if you need a lightning protection device. If you do, you will need a jumper cable.

 

STEP 4: Order the pigtail for your modem below:

PIGAC815S (NOTE: Need this pigtail to connect this device to antenna cable. It is included in preconfigured kits.)

 

STEP 5: If the pigtail's Connector 2 is FME-F you will need an N-Female/FME-F adapter to mate to the N-Male cable in step 2. Alternatively, select an N-Male/FME-M cable in step 2 above (more expensive and less re-usable) to avoid requiring this adapter.

Signal Improvement Solutions (WiFi)
AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) is not listed as having an external WLAN antenna port in the RFWEL Wireless Device Information Database. This may be either because the device really does not have an external antenna port or RFWEL Wireless Device Specialists have not confirmed the existence and utility of such ports. Please contact us for the latest updates or if you believe this device contains external antenna ports and you would like to learn more about compatible signal improvement solutions.
WiFi Repeaters/ Extenders/ Amplifiers

Because the AT&T Unite Explore Hotspot (Netgear 815S) is not listed as having an external antenna port, you would need to use a wireless network extender or repeater to increase the WiFi signal coverage
