This was contributed by a credible source and a Filipino photographer as well, based in Singapore. If you’re looking for ways on how to boost 3G USB broadband signal then maybe this would help end your problem.

Materials that you need:

How to increase broadband signal

 

1. A strainer with center hole fit for USB dongle

2. 3G USB dongle

3. USB cable

4. Aluminium foil

What you need to do:

1. Perform speed test before the changes will be implemented (this serves as your basis to determine if there is improvement).

Sample speedtest before the improvement

2. Place the USB cable in between the strainer and connect it with 3G broadband USB dongle


3. Wrap the strainer with aluminum foil just like what was depicted in the picture.

4. Connect the other end of the cable to your computer

5. Perform speed test after the changes has been made. Check if there is improvement on the broadband connection speed.

Sample speed test after the improvement

If you have the available materials at home then why not try it. If you made an experiment about this come back here and share to us the results. You can also like us on facebook so that others would know about this existing technique.

*Hope this would help to improve / Boost 3G USB Broadband Signal at your place. :-)

  • kevz

  • Ichabod Crane

    full signal pare, pero slow ung connection mo? congested cguro ung location ninyo or baka may problema ung tower na nagraradiate ng signal kaya mahina connection mo..

    • DARKNIGHT

      Masosolve ba nito yung problem ni Kevz above. Same situation kasi kami. Full bar ang smart 3G signal dito sa location ko pero sobrang bagal pa rin internet connection

      • mattscradle

        Tingin ko po sir hindi. Ang purpose po nito is increase ang signal sa ganyang situation need nyo na mag seek help sa smart.

  • Cyvern

  • mattscradle

    Gumagana naman po yan basta maayos lang po ng pagkaka gawa.

  • AGEL

  • ian

    • mattscradle

      Salamat po sir ian.

  • spook

    nagawa ko na yan but still mabagal parin…. i wonder kung ung maliit na payong nmn kaya balutan ko ng foil :D my lalakas pakaya ang signal… and my location at malolos bulacan.

  • jayd

    pde ba yan sa loob ng bahay ?
    o sa taas ?

  • jayd

    may USB extension din ako with signal booster.
    kaya lng mahina pa rin .
    san ko ba ilalagay ung Strainer?

    sa itaas ng bahay po ba?

  • mattscradle

    Kahit po full bar ang signal mabagal pa rin po. I made a speed test with my sun broadband wireless few days ago. Even at five bars it is very slow.

  • jojo

  • arn

    paano pag ung signal booster ng cd r king ginamitan ng ganyan? ano mangya2ri?

  • Sun Broadband

    pano po ung usb cord? san mabibili un??

  • Tiggy

    pinaka-magandang gawin mo dyan, bumil ka ng wi tribe usb dongle tapos bilhan mo din ng dongle booster nya… bukod sa mura yung load nila mas maganda yung signal nila kasi pure 4g, unlike sa ibang braodband nasa 3g pa yung signal… another option, bili ka ng usb dongle na meron slot para sa antenna at bilhan mo ng antenna tapos gawin mo din tong mini satellite na pinapakita sa picture pero yung gamitin mo yug signal booster ng cdr king, tyak effective yan.

  • knowwell

    I’m electronics Engineer, by principle this will surely work :)

  • bong

    ang galing ng nkaisip nyan ah, its working effective talaga ive made my own version yung lata lng ng sprite in can maedyo maliit nga lng fro sure pag nilakihan ko lalo lalakas ang signal ko

  • Gerald

    MUST TRY THANKS FOR THE IDEA BRO! :)

  • jess

  • candice

    • rapo

  • raymartcaro

    ser matt, anu ba mas ok, ung usb extension na nlbas sa labas ng bhay wherein ung broadband ay covered nman xa ng bote ng coke. o ung desine mo na sa loob lang ng bhay.

    • http://mattscradle.com Adam

      Hi Raymart sorry but I haven’t tried the one you are talking about here. You can place the one in the picture outside of your window so you can determine which one performs better.

  • jared
