Hi , just newly installed a peplink 380. I want to use mobile network as backup with a USB mobile dongle. Unfortunately, the signal is too low. I hoping to extends the length with usb cable. do it recommended ? or do it have another solution ?
A better approach would be to install an external antenna along with a signal amplifier.
You could use an USB extension cable to extend the USB dongle to a better reception area.
Otherwise you could use a MAX BR1 and place it at a good signal reception area. Then you could connect the MAX BR1 to the WAN port of the Balance 380.
The BR1 will then act as a cellular modem for the Balance 380.
