Would you be able to tell me the configuration of the 4 external antenna ports on this router.

    Hello,

    The NR5103 datasheet at https://spdl.zyxel.com/NR5103/datasheet/NR5103_2.pdf has some details about the external and internal antennas.

    Read the ** note about the frequency band support of the external antenna connectors. It says the external antenna connectors support 698 to 4200 MHz frequency.

    Kind regards,
        Tony

    The given link does not work. There is no source to find detailed manual for this NR5103 product!

    Hello @mika_kapu

    Welcome to the forum.

    There is information about the NR5103 at https://service-provider.zyxel.com/emea/en/products/5g-nr4g-lte-cpe/5g-nr-cpe/idus/nr5103

    If you click on Downloads & resources about half way down the page, then it will take you to an area where there is a user guide dated May 2023.

    Kind regards,

    Tony

  • just to inform you that based on some tests done with my existing antenna (2×2 MIMO 700-3800 mhz with 2 plugs) where I tried all the possible combinations: only connecting ports 1 and 3 results in good LTE+NR throughput (1 being the top connector). The modem shows that UL and DL CA are working. All other combinations end up in very bad results... I definitely need an explanation on the reasons behind this weird behavior.
