Setup Overview



The zBoost Metro YX540iP Signal Antenna.

Before placing a zBoost Metro in your home, make sure that you can place calls near the window or wherever you plan to place the Signal Antenna. zBoost can only bring signal into your home when signal reaches the Signal Antenna.

Using your cell phone, place a call near this location to confirm that enough signal is present to complete the call. If you can reliably make and receive calls at that location then zBoost can bring the signal into your home. If only one signal bar is displayed on your cell phone, indoor coverage will be limited to one small room.
Proceed through the following steps to set up the zBoost Metro:

Place the Signal Antenna on the interior of a window located in the area of best signal.
Determine the location that provides the strongest signal using the signal strength indicator on your cell phone. Choose the suction cup attachments appropriate for your setting (short or long), fasten to the Signal Antenna, and secure to your window.
In order to capture the strongest signal, you may do one or all of the following:

    1. Move the antenna around the window-higher is usually better.
    2. Use the long suction cup attachments provided in order to create a greater angle in which to capture the signal. The suction cups must be vertical on the window.
    3. For best performance keep the Signal Antenna 2 feet from any metal.

Place the zBoost Base Unit where you want to create a Cell Zone™
Connect the Base Antenna and coax to the Base Unit and place it where you need signal. For the widest possible signal area, it is recommended that you position the Base Unit 8ft straight out from the window antenna. The zBoost Metro does not require vertical separation; however, the Signal Antenna and Base Unit Antenna should have at least 8 feet of horizontal separation.
Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the provided power supply and plug into a power outlet

Upon initial power up, a solid green LED should appear indicating normal conditions. If a red light appears, adjustments may be needed.

Purchased this to help the signal in my apartment since I got 4 bars in my living room and zero in all other places. I have T-Mobile service FYI. Got the item and installed it as it was stated in the directions. Placed the window unit near the area with 4 bars and kept the main unit about 12 feet from it (stated to keep it at least 8 feet away). Powered up the unit and within 1 minute the unit turned green..however NO improvement in the signal...walked around the entire house and still NO bars or signal. Moved the unit to a higher location and changed the window unit around...NOTHING...returned the same day..Waste of money and time.

I installed this product per instructions and it absolutely does not work. Luckily Amazon has a great return policy. Try a 3G MicroCell from AT&T for $200, works great.
