HotSpot location:

Here are some general tips on where to best locate your mobile hotspot to improve mobile broadband and Wi-Fi signals:

  • Keep 3’-6’ away from electronics that generate RF interference, such as a laptop, microwave, TV, or portable phone
  • Place the hotspot device so that the signal can pass through a window, doorway, or drywall and avoid concrete, brick, metal and walls with insulation.
  • Place the device in a central location
  • Try multiple locations to get the best cell reception between the hotspot and the nearest Verizon tower. Try different rooms, or even another level of your house, to see if you get better reception.  
  • If you are experiencing a weak signal, try re-orienting your device and/or moving it (and possibly your computer) to another location. 
  • You may be able to connect your computer to the jetpack wifi with great signal strength (as shown by the indicator on your computer), but the jetpack alsp needs to connect to the Verizon tower over cellular wireless (as shown on the jetpack display).
