5G Antennas For D-Link DWR978 5G Router

The DWR978 has 2 x external 5G Antennas and is supplied with 2 x elbow joint antennas which will provide good cellular connectivity when the DWR978 router is located in a position with a strong 5G network signal.  If this router is installed indoors where there is a poor 5G signal but there is a much better 5G signal close-by or outdoors then by replacing the supplied antennas with a different 5G antenna you may be able to improve your 5G signal and provide a better download and upload speed, or connection stability.

It may just be that you want the router out of the way in the corner of a room, or near a mains power supply and it will not reach to the window, or you just don’t want the router on the windowsill exposed to bright sunlight.  In these circumstances you could use an indoor 5G antenna in the window and run the antenna cable to the router.  A low cost 2×2 5G antenna in this circumstance would be the Panorama DMM-6-60-2SP which is a low cost, cross-polarized 5G antenna that can be window or wall mounted and is supplied with 2 x 2m long cables with SMA Male connectors that will screw into the  two antenna ports on the rear of the DWR978 5G Router.
