  • Bandrich R565 external antenna ports

    Hey guys
    I'm wanting to add an external antenna setup to a Bandrich Bandluxe R565 4g LTE modem/router. I cannot find what I'm looking for anywhere. A Bandrich representative said it is a "murata to sma adapter". I'm not familiar with"murata". I've seen a few adapters on digikey but still not sure if they are what I need. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Here is the BandLuxe R565 wireless device information page:
    You can also get the high gain outdoor antenna kit for it which would already have the pigtail you need to connect to an external antenna.

      Note that to install the MXHS83QH3000 Murata pigtail you need to leave the leave the rubber frame in the router and not remove it. The rubber frame holds the cable/adapter down (see pictures below). When you plug it in, hold it straight and push it in until you hear a click sound, then it it connected. If you are not seeing a different in performance after installing the BandLuxe R565 LTE Home Router Outdoor Antenna Kit please check the pigtail connection first.

        Will an adaptor like this work?

          No that is a U.FL adapter which will not work with the BandLuxe modems. You need the Murata adapter linked above.
