“Connect the 4G Xtream to WiFi Hotspots with this high gain 15dBi antenna kit, which allows one of the dual wifi modules to connect to a 2.4 or 5GHz wireless hotspot.”
This simple kit, comprising of a high gain 15dBi antenna, mounting base, 33ft LMR400 low loss cable and connector kit allows one of the 4G Xtream‘s dual wifi modules to connect to a marina’s wireless network “hotspot” to use their internet connection rather than the 4G mobile network. This is particularly useful in remote areas where 4G coverage may not be good or if you have a limited or expensive data plan on your SIM.
The high gain antenna has been designed to operate over the full 2.4 & 5GHz wireless frequency range, so you can take advantage of the latest 5GHz wireless networks in marinas which are gradually replacing the older and more congested 2.4GHz networks.
The antenna cable can be connected to either of the Wi-Fi connections on the rear of the 4G Xtream, replacing the standard internal antenna and the 10m of low loss cable allow you to mount the external antenna in a suitable position on deck using the supplied mount.
A video showing this new boosted wireless mode for the 4G Xtream, how to select 2.4GHz or 5GHz operation and how to scan for and connect to a suitable “hotspot” is available on our YouTube channel.
