We’ve clocked speeds are at times DOUBLE what the default connection gives. The setting change may or may not increase your speeds. It did for us and others in Japan so it is definitely worth a try.

This should work for other WiMAX devices but some of the options may be slightly different.


Placing your modem near a window or an external wall that’s closest to and facing the nearest tower is suggested for receiving the best signal. Try to find a placement spot with the least number of obstacles between the modem and the nearest WiMAX tower.

The following image shows an example of WiMax tower locations around Yokota Air Base, Japan. Check with your WiMAX provider to see if they have a tower map for your area.

Also, please be sure that your modem is at least 3 feet away from any microwaves, cordless phones, wireless routers, stereo speakers, etc., to avoid any frequency interference.

For excellent WiMAX speed you will need to ensure that a minimum of TWO [LEDs or signal strength bars are displayed]. The more LED lights [or bars] that are lit up, the stronger your signal.

To ensure your optimal signal in your location – twist the entire modem unit on it’s base clockwise, in small 1/4″ increments – waiting 15-20 seconds in between twists to allow for an accurate indication of a signal’ (If you were able to determine the location of the nearest tower, rotate your modem to face that tower).

Because of potential obstacles between you and a signal tower you might be surprised where your best signal connection will be made. Try different bedrooms, the kitchen, the attic or even the garage. Once you locate the strongest possible signal in your location, reconnect the modem to the computer.

WiMAX speed tweaks help you setup your device to increase your signal for superior streaming video and audio performance with Netflix, Hulu, HuluPlus, Pandora, Spotify and more.
