  • Cantenna CA10002 What is it?

    Hi all, thanks for having this forum.

    I have recently become interested in Broadband-Hamnet but I'm still very ignorant on the subject. I was Blessed a few weeks ago by finding at a flea market, this Cantenna. I can't seem to find out much on the Internet and am hoping to get some information from you folks on this forum. What can you tell me? I see that it has a MAC address and has a power in connector, but I would have expected a 10baseT connector there somewhere. Thanks, Jim

    This is a MoCA compliant CPE so it doesn't have a 10BT connector but rather uses coaxial to compatible devices (Verizon TG790 Home Fusion Router). Here is more information on it: Here is more information on MoCa:

      I live in an all metal home in rural MO. I currently have a Verizon Home Fusion Broadband Cantenna wireless system. It works ok for internet access, but does not help my cell phone reception in the home. I am considering changing to an AT&T Wireless Home Phone & Internet system. It has no external antenna, which causes me concern. Is there a booster for this system? Can my external Cantenna with an ATT wireless router help

        There is no way to boost the Cantenna separately. There is also no way to connect a direct-attach antenna to the AT&T Wireless Phone & Internet (ZTE 2700). You can boost this device with a wireless repeater/ bi-directional amplifier such as:

        The older AT&T Wireless Home Phone (WF720) has a TNC-Female external antenna port so this could be hooked up to an outdoor antenna:

          Thank you for the info. Does AT&T make a Home Phone and Internet base station with a external antenna port, similar to the WF720?

            The ZTE WF720 and WF721 devices are actually branded AT&T. The WF720 has a TNC-Female antenna port and the WF721 has an SMA-Male antenna port. Not sure if AT&T still sells these directly but you can probably get them online and have AT&T activate it.
