Boosting Cell Phone Signal by JamesWanderwad.asm - Tue, 19 Sep 2017 04:01:10 EST ID:2QDtT/Wc No.121316 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, I get my internet as part of my unlimited data cell phone plan, using my phone as a wifi hotspot and picking it up with my pc. But where I live I get shit cell reception. Mountains and all that.

Before anyone suggests I change how I get the internet, I live out in bumfuck egypt and there is no cable, no dsl, no wifi. This is my only choice other than satellite plans with unacceptable data caps. So it's this or go back to dial up.

Anyway, I figured that maybe if i could get more than two bars in the room where my computer is, my download speeds would improve.

I have heard of various signal booster products, like on amazon, with a greatly varying price range, so I thought I would ask people on a tech board about it.

Have any of you ever had to solve this problem for yourselves, and how did you do it? Did you buy a signal booster, and how well did it work? Was it worth the money, and easy to install and use?

At the moment, I'm pretty new to wireless, wi-fi, cell phones, and high speed internet in general, unfortunately, and I gotta start somewhere.

The best solution would be a high gain antenna mounted on the outside aligned with the cell phone tower that gives you the best reception.

First get the opensignal app for your phone and find out the best reception on the locations you could mount an antenna and the direction of the cell tower you are connected to at this point.
Then get a 4g modem with with an external antenna bnc connector and a high gain 4g antenna.
I'd look for "4g antenna" on aliexpress (I never buy electronics from amazon if it's a Chinese product any way)
If you don't know which one to buy go on sort by orders and get the most popular one.

While I do know some of that basic stuff, I really do appreciate seeing someone explain beginner stuff without derision. Too many people act like pricks nowadays just because someone else doesn't yet know what they know, especially online, so it's nice to see you and the other posters in this thread not doing that shit. I've been having a shitty day, and that fact lessens it a bit.

And yeah, even when I'm getting the worst download speed I typically get, it's still way better than when I was using dial up. The dial up here was terrible, like, "you're pleased to get 8kb/s on a download" terrible.

Videos, Steam stuff, mods, you name it. I'd like to live as what has become a normal person, with the ability to buy games digitally, keep my games and other software updated, get instructions for and answer questions about things online while the situation is still relevant. Maybe even play online multiplayer on occasion.

Sometimes I do watch or download youtube stuff at low res, but sometimes a lot is lost in the lowering of the detail.

Anyway, my main thing is that Verizon has me for around $80 a month, and after my 15gb limit on 4g speeds for mobile hotspot data, i'm supposed to be getting downgraded to ~600kb/s download speed, which would be ok, if I actually got that. The best I get is around 100-120kb/s. Since it's my only real choice, I'm just looking to more get my money's worth out of it.

My neighbor knocked on my door earlier and asked if she could pay me $25 a month to use my internet, I agreed.

About an hour later I could hear the "Ding-ding!" money sound from chaturbate or whatever coming through the vent.

How do I see whats connected to my IP and see whats going on through that?

Depends on your router. Clients is likely how many devices are connected to your computer. Your connection, a smartphone, her connection.

Try this is your router like way out dated. you can check the 'build version'. If it's out dated you can flash an updated version which is basically easy. Often just pressing a button to update on some routers.

The 'port scan' may just be some random nothing. https://www.grc.com/shieldsup to see if any ports are open on your computer. It's as basic a start as you can get to start. If all is green then it should be cool.

numbers like are IP addresses. This would translate to quaker.com

What router do you have? poke around. Get a newer router. Most routers can translate like above so you can see what addresses are being accessed.

Sort of depends. I rate this shit by potential audience. While some platforms may be more robust and easier to use, if the video isn't seen, what good is it? You don't want to be uploading to some obscure, bottom of the Google search page, platform even if it is the best technically out there. Unless of course that is your audience. Usually the Youtube and FB live streams are where the viewers are at.

Depends on where you live, whether your ISP cares, and whether rightsholders are sitting on the torrents. You can go a long time without getting a copyright strike, and then if your ISP changes policy and you're downloading something where the rightsholder is really protective, suddenly you're getting them.

Never gotten one with my VPN on. Also, less common sources and protocols can keep you safer.

Actually rereading the sentence I think I understand more now, it's like human hierarchy. Example, a president doesn't need to worry what average Joe on the streets had said about the president, that's what the surveillance is for. But still, in order to be in total control, the user (the pres in this case) has to know everything about the functioning system.

In 'real life' (as opposed to I.T. theory) every 'organic' event which takes place on God's creation, such as those in one's society has its own effect within its own existential world.

I.E...."Mankind is made in the image of God." or "Man is God writ small."

Surveillance is not for any noble purpose. Perhaps 'in theory' but usually not in practice. Especially in ultra-capitalist Amerikkka.

The President and the establishment and the ruling class think they are 'high' or that they are 'higher' than others (this is human lust and passion) but in truth we all bleed the same in the presence of God.

So on the street level, events which take place have their due significance, no matter what air of arrogance a politician carries and no matter all the catty comments one can make about it, military or not.

It is "We the People" and not "We the Military-Industrial Complex". They are the usurpers and detractors from the 'source code', we are the people of the United States who defeated Germany and Japan, dropped atomic bombs of facists, feed and house the hungry and poor and afflicted of the world, stopped the mouths of tyrants, and landed a human being on the moon. All in the name of liberty and in the name of God and what is right.

i.e.. copy & paste

you only have to copy a URL, and paste the URL for the URL to automatically display an entire webpage

it is like reading blueprints...if you roll out all of the blueprints of an OS, you can focus in on different parts of the OS to see what is going on at a specific part of the OS....and then you can, from there intuit what will take place in the higher or lower levels of the 'OS hierarchy'

API - integral control structure of windows operating system organization to determine how the windows OS functions...one of the 'internal components under the hood', such as a hood on a car contains internal components

I.E.....focusing in on windows API or
.....focusing in on an open source kernel
.....focusing in on GUI display and programming layouts for display

if you look at some part of a windows OSI, for instance, by viewing this part of the hierarchical structure of the (already-programmed) OS software, to be run on a physical machine (hardware), you can see that it fits in with the entirety of the software hierarchy for the whole OS...and thus by looking at a single point in the hierarchy you can discern things about the rest of the hierarchy because there is already a 'standardized' conception of how everything is supposed to function to make the whole OS function appropriately
