How To Tweak Smart BRO WiFi

Recommended Posts

antenna placement and site congestion sometimes or usually limits your speed. but don't worry your doing great already than the previous days without the tweaks.  that should be enough running at our host average.

I suggest if your RSSI is below 500 (just like mine), and even you orient the antenna in different positions and still RSSI is below 500, you can increase it by adding a passive antenna (also known as Stinger) on your motorola canopy subscriber module. This will increase the effective area of your motorola canopy antenna and will capture more power (resulting in an increase of RSSI). You can make your own Stinger too if you want.

In equation,

Power (RSSI)  = Power Density X Effective Area

Low RSSI level affects your antenna's upload and download efficiency. This will also result to high jitter value. High jitter value will cause intermittent connection.

hi, the canopy tweaking works to me..i used to have 240+ speed..now it is 370+ something..hehehe. thanks..kaya lng pwede pa sigurong pabilisin pa un, kasi ung canopy ko, nasa bintana lng nmin nakalagay eh..siguro kung sa bubong mas mabilis..malapit kasi kasi sa cell site ng smart..

well we can atleast try. if your just near the site it doesnt matter if your canopy it mounted at your window. do the tweaks like the others have tried here. they got satisfied after few tweakings. you can dig up things that will optimize your broadband use.

A Stinger is a passive antenna which increases the RSSI level at the same time decreases jitter value received by your motorola canopy subscriber module( the antenna). You gonna need this if your RSSI value of your antenna  is below 500, since the typical value for RSSI for a reliable link from subscriber module to the base station is 500. Below 500 the link will is no longer reliable and usually the leads to intermittent internet connection ( jitter is quite high).

The Stinger narrows the Beamwidth of the microwave signal entering and leaving from your motorola canopy (antenna). Therefore It concentrates more power received by your antenna( Beamwidth has nothing to do with the Bandwidth).

In my case, I am 2 km away from the base station. The value of Radio Signal Strength Indicator ( RSSI) is only 360, but when I added this Stinger to the antenna, the RSSI value is increased to 500 to 600+ ( based in my observation an increase of 50 % in RSSI)

I attached a photo of my home made Stinger. It cost me only 200 pesos. It's made of aluminum plane sheet.

You can read more information about the Stinger for motorola canopy at http://www.wbmfg.com/Stinger .

can i just ask. you mentioned about the RSSI values. my RSSI value does not go down to 600 but why cant i have a constant 380kbps speed??

heres the numbers

Session Status : REGISTERED VC 72 Rate 1X/1X 

Registered AP : 0a-00-3e-f2-34-be 

RSSI : 642 

Power Level : -74 dBm 

Jitter : 2 

Air Delay : 138 approximately 1.28 miles (6762 feet)

latest speed:
