This AT&T Microcell is built by Cisco Systems, a leader in cellular network technology. It can provide up to 5 bars of AT&T cell signal to your 3G and 4G mobile phones (including iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc). Setup is quick and easy - just follow the 10-minute setup in the included "quick-start" guide and it will be up and running typically within 2 hours of setup. Note that this device requires internet connectivity through a wired Ethernet connection (cable is included). Most wired and wireless routers include 4 or more of these ports. Also requires installation close enough to a window to receive GPS signals for use during emergency (911) calls. Highly secure device that cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. Supports up to four voice or data users simultaneously.

Plug in the electrical connection, plug in a network cable to your home network. Go to the ATT website included with the device, logon to your wireless ATT account or create one if you don't have one attached to your phone, enter in the serial number of the Microcell, add all the ATT cellphone numbers that will be using the device, press enter, within 90 minutes you will be up and running, (mine took 20 minutes). I can now go anywhere in my 2300 square foot home. I work from home and taking calls in the basement was always hit or miss, mostly miss, now there are no issues whatsoever I can go anywhere in my home to make or receive calls and text. Basically this just routes all your calls via the internet when you are connected to the Microcell, your calls actually sound better too and they don't have the latency with normal cell traffic.
I set it up per the instructions and it went through the first 3 steps, but would not activate and I kept getting FTC101 error which said the device would not connect on the internet. I contacted ATT technical support which had no idea why the device would not activate.
I went online and found an ATT troubleshooting tutorial which advised that your router settings had to be set to the following:
Ports that must remain open
IPSec Pass-Through is enabled
Block Fragmented Packets is disabled
MTU size set to 1492
MAC address filtering is set to off
If the Microcell is connected to a modem and router, NAT can only be enable in one device
I went into the settings on my Lindsys router and made all the changes except the fragmented packets disabled because I could not find that setting. I unregistered and then registered the Microcell again in an attempt to activate it and still got the FTC error 101.
I contacted tech support at my ISP and asked them to check and see if any of the ports I needed open were blocked on their end. They checked and said no, but they went into my modem settings and port forwarded all the ports I needed open to my Linksys router. It was only after this that I was able to get the Microcell activated after (4) frustrating days of trying to get connected. I now have (5) bars and a very clear cell phone connection at my cabin.
In doing some google searches online, many users had the same problem trying to activate with the same error I got with no help from ATT Tech support. I am only giving this products 4 stars due to the poor technical support from ATT.
I ordered this unit after receiving a defective (non-working ) AT&T 3G Microcell Wireless Cellular Signal Booster from Amazon, Sold by Bay Walk Gifts. I will never, never, never purchase again from Bay Walk Gifts.
I installed this unit and 15 minutes I had 5 bars throughout the entire house. I would highly recommend.
