External antenna telstra hotspot

l have a telstra hotspot and a 7-9db LTE antenna (axis clr8)

This is mounted to the bullbar of my car then connected to the hotspot via a patch lead. However there is no increase in dbm when connecting the device to the antenna. I am in the metro ara and usually have around 3 bars 3g or 2 bars 4g.

Re: External antenna telstra hotspot

Which model is the device that you are connecting to the external antenna? Have you adjusted the settings to use the External antenna instead of the Internal one?
