You may find you get a better signal by putting your dongle by a window and connecting it to your computer using a USB extension cable.

Some dongles allow the use of a separate aerial. You can find the aerials on ebay.

Again thanks for the advice - I have (after following this advice) come across this: http://mobilerepeater.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?cP...

Anybody got any views on this - its £335 and doubtless VAT and postage are extra. It seems very powerful for my humble home - any advice is welcome please! Many thanks.

Check ofcom on usage of this type of product you may land yourself with a very hefty fine and risk a stay at hmp.

Hello

This seems a good idea and wireless so good for smartphones or tablet PC, ok you have one machine and not sure if that is a desktop but could wireless enable that with a card that will go into the thing and a small arial,

Was me that wrote about 3 times, was at work on the later ones and no log in details.

Neater than the drill hole in a dongle and mounting in a box, (ok cheaper but more work!).

Spam removed and it should be pointed out mobile signal amplifiers are not allowed in the UK.

I am currently using Vodafone dongle and I noticed I need to top up it every day even if I am using only for emails and business. Does anybody know any dongles which I can use with better deals?

Take a look at the 4G Home stuff from EE, there is a £75/m 100GB package on there then.

Otherwise most dongle packages max out at around 20-30GB per month
