I only need a relatively small surface area WiFi coverage  (50m²)
These antenna work on certain frequencies .  . . I need a antenna for the Huawei B618 LTE-A Fixed Wireless Router that will ensure the strongest & best quality signal RECEPTION
i.e. translating into highest download & upload speeds
PC will be connected to the Huawei B618 LTE-A Fixed Wireless Router via a WLAN cable  (WiFi signal strength of lesser importance)

Rain uses 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz frequencies so you will need an antenna capable of that. I am using LPDA-0092-LTE and getting a gain of 14 dBi even though max is suppose to be 11 dBi. A-XPOL-006-10M with a gain of 11 dBi and A-XPOL-0002-V2 with a gain of 9 dBi should also both work. All have SMA connectors so you will need an SMA to TS9 adapter x 2 . Not sure if there is a recommended antenna.

These antenna will improve your signal reception and therefore your download and upload speeds, they will do nothing for your wifi coverage or range

Hi 8tpg88,,

I'm currently just sitting outside the Rain LTE-A coverage. What antenna would help me get connected?

Kind regards

I had tried an indoor antenna but the result is not good, last month i get a new high gain outdoor LTE antenna with two connectors for my Huawei B618s-22d router. The signal becomes much better now. I recommend it to you:

In my opinion, such antennas are not the most useful, more often the signal is very weak nearby, but from afar it is not very bad. I would recommend you TP-Link Omada AC1200 Wireless Outdoor Access Point because in my opinion it is a very good and high quality antenna. It has a very good and high-quality signal and has a fairly large radius. True, I found it on the site https://geeqer.com/best-outdoor-wi-fi-antenna/ . There are more options if you do not like the option that I picked up. I just used the Omada wireless access point so I decided to recommend it to you. I had no problem with using and installing it but there were some small issues with agjusting the antenna but now everything seems fine to me.
