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). If none of these pre-configured kits works for you, see below for manual selection of choice of antenna, cable length, lightning protection, etc.

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:

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
