DIY Outdoor 3G/HSPA Wireless Signal Booster for Home BroadBand Internet

Setup:

You can place the router inside the enclosure together with the 3G / 4G internet dongle. I added further heat insulation by covering the device with aluminum bubble sheets used for roof insulation.

The router used is AP/WIFI capable but I am using an additional AP router to extend my WIFI coverage and to penetrate the signal inside the rooms in the house. A 10m UTP cable from the LAN port for the 2nd router is used, but this is optional. To reduce the power load and temperature inside the router, the WIFI radio is deactivated.

See below final setup.

Software Settings:

You have to connect to your router configuration page to activate the router mode and ISP settings. See your router manual how to access the page and the IP address info on your browser.

You can choose to connect automatically, so every time you power the device it will dial and connect to the ISP. If you are prepaid subscriber you can connect manually but you have to access the configuration page to dial connection. I choose to connect on demand, by this I can setup the idle time for the device to disconnect when nobody is using the internet and also when the ISP is down the system can go idle and rest.
