How to Improve Aircard Signal Using MBR1000 Router

Improve Signal with a Cradlepoint MBR1000 router. Is there a way for a Cradlepoint MBR1000 router to improve the signal on your Verizon (or AT&T or Sprint) aircard without any Antennas or Amplifiers?

Yes, we have a few tricks that can help you get the best possible signal. To start, you need to know how to see the signal. On the MBR1000, simply press down the Signal button for about 5 seconds until the green light comes on. Now you can see how many bars of signal you are getting.

An even more accurate way to see the signal strength is to log into the Cradlepoint Administration page and select “Modem”. This will give you the dBm or RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) in a number between about 60 to 110+. Lower is better! A signal of 75 is better than 95.

Now that you know how to determine the best signal, you can place the Cradlepoint in the best area in the home or office. For example, if you get a RSSI of 72 dBm in the upstairs bedroom, but only a 86 dBm in the office on the first floor, you can still put the router and USB card in the better upstairs location and then let the MBR1000 send the WiFi signal down to the office where the computers are located.

So yes, a Cradlepoint MBR1000 router CAN help get you a better signal by virtue of letting you put it in a more advantageous place.
