We have a 5G Gateway N1 device that works pretty well, but we do have weak signals at the moment and we also live on a hillside and probably do not get much benefit from the omnidirectional antenna system in the cylinder-shaped device.
I am considering an outdoor installation in a weatherproof box that would have a short (<10m) conduit into our residence. This should allow me to elevate the device a bit while also placing it away from our outer wall (though not that far).
The connection would carry a grounded 120v extension cord as well as a RJ45 cable to connect with a WIFI router inside our residence. The operating temperature limits on the device would seem acceptable, but I am considering a fan for ventilation.
Does this make sense? Has anyone else tried this?
