Why use an external antenna?


Next time you're out-and-about look around you - every day thousands of Australians use external antennas to enjoy fast, uninterrupted wireless broadband internet. If you're in a rural, hilly, low signal area, or you can't get a good signal indoors there's no need to tear your hair out over slow mobile broadband crashing or dropping out half way - an external antenna is often all you need.

What does a patch lead do?


Most antenna cables terminate with a standard connection, most commonly a female 'FME' connector. To plug an antenna into your phone or wireless modem, you need a short cable that acts as a conversion from the FME connector to the device-specific connector that will plug into the antenna port on your device.


Please note: The TS9 Patch Lead does not sit flush against this modem, this modem's contacts are not recessed as with other models. Although there is no audible 'click' when inserted a good connection is still achieved and there is no need to apply additional force, doing so may damage the connectors.

Telstra WiFi Advanced 782S External Antenna


The Telstra 4G 782S device uses a technology called MIMO. This technology uses two antennas to theoretically double your speed in 4G areas. To check whether your area is 4G enabled use our Telstra coverage map guide. To learn more about the Telstra 4G network please see our Telstra 4G Guide.

When outside the 4G network area the modem will only use one radio and require only one antenna to be connected. This antenna must be connected to Port-1 - you can find the port numbers written on the port covers.

Which connector type do I need?


We offer both the standard FME connector that you will find on 90% of antenna cables, and the less common SMA connector sometimes used. The following images will help you identify which connector your antenna cable has, and consequently what patch lead you require. If you don't yet have an antenna, you can find what connector your antenna will have at the bottom of it's description.
