I'm on Rural Broadband and I have a B315 modem connected to aerial on roof via a cable. I need to extend this cable by about 5 metres. Therefore I'll need 5 metres cable with a male adaptor one end and female the other. Can anyone advise what the correct technical desriptor of this cable is and also where can I obtain it?? Thanks

It's just standard coax cable that is usd. You could buy it from PB Tech / Bunnings / Jaycar.

 

You probably shouldn't be doing that yourself though.. Vodafone can dispatch a tech to extend the cable for you professionally and ensure the service is still running within spec..

 

Thanks

Hi, 

 

Can you guide me to buy an outdoor antenna for my Huawei B315s modem? Although i'm thinking changing my B315 modem to another Huawei E5186 modem, i think the outdoor antenna could be used on both LTE routers because they have the same antenna connector, am i right?

Standard cable is 10m LMR240. It is best not to extend this cable due to loss of signal strength . Instead this should be replaced with a 15m LMR300 cable.
