Netgear Aircard 782S Ethernet Charging Cradle Patch Lead


Key Features


  • Connect your WiFi modem to an external antenna (FME Male)

  • Heavy duty short-barrel TS9 connector

  • 15cm of RG316 cable

  • Helps boost signal strength and speed of your 4G device

  • Netgear 782S 4G mobile broadband cradle has two antenna ports - use Port-1 when connecting only one antenna and operating on 3G

  • We recommend the use of dual antennas in 4G areas.


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.


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, when an external antenna is often all you need.


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 or to learn more about the Telstra 4G network, use our Telstra coverage map 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 will need to match this up by looking at the corresponding ports on the modem.


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

  • The following images will help you identify which connector your antenna cable has, and consequently what patch lead you require

  • If you don't have an antenna yet, you can find the connector your antenna needs at the bottom of its description.
