    What model of WiMax CPE modem is this? That looks like a U.FL pigtail which you can pick up from here: http://www.rfwel.com/shop/4G-USB-Mod...tenna-Kit.html. Select the 18dBi panel antenna, your cable length and the pigtail and we will include any adapters you need to allow everything to hook up.

        No the antenna is self-powered (passive).

        The pigtail has U.FL on one end and N-Female on the other end. The N-Female connects to the LMR-400 cable which has N-Male ends. The LMR-400 cable connects to the Antenna which has an N-Female port.

        Here is an example of how this could hook up: http://www.rfwel.com/support/tech-dr...ENERIC_USB.pdf (shown here for a USB modem and different pigtail but the idea is the same you just replace the USB modem with your modem and the pigtail would be the U.FL).

        Yes this is 4G Wimax operating at 2.5-2.7GHz. What country is this for? You need to figure out what frequency band your provider is operating their WiMax network on. If they are operating at 2.5-2.7GHz (2500-2700MHz) then this will work for you.

            Ok. Please get in touch with our sales folks - http://www.rfwel.com/contact.php for more information on International shipments. This would ship from U.S.A (Gilbert, Arizona).

            Yes the cable is from the antenna to the pigtail. The pigtail only has about 10 inches (~25cm) of cable.

              reason

              inside house i get full signal but if i put my router out i get also full signal but higher download speed

              so thought to add external antenna

              should i go with direct 18dbi gain or omni 10dbi or 8 ??

              my wimax is 2.5ghz so recommend antenna for my problem (right now i got full signal) i must buy 1 befor go on 5 days travel
