I was looking to use a mobile reception aerial I bought some time ago.

 

It was for the pc, or laptop though, but ive been told by one of the staff on here that theres a chance I could get it to work with the Cube U30GT2 too just depending if we can work out how to get the drivers inserted onto the tablet etc.

 

Its an Alfa aerial, one of those ones that is ultra powerfull for receiving a signal from a router maybe 500meters away or more depending on the circumstances, I have the driver disk for windows for it etc.

 

Thing is how to figure out how to get it working on the Cube, lol, if possible !

 

I can give you the model number of the item etc but its upstairs and the wife is asleep, so I dont like to wake the sleeping bear, LOL, but thats not a problem.

 

I know also, that it connects via USB, so I would need a short length maybe no more than 1 meter extension cable which I think would be a female standard USB fitting at one end and then a micro usb fitting on the other end to plug into the Cube micro usb port, I cant think of any other way to connect it ?

 

Look forward to hearing from anyone soon thanks :)

There are multiple conditions on which you can use an antenna, and one will be to have some sort of drivers, and I am not talking about the ones for windows, arm/linux versions. I do have doubts that you will be able to do something, unless you find an antenna that has the source code released, then re-compile/adapt the drivers for Android.

I will give you the details later of the aerial and maybe you could tell me what you think please, eh ?

thanks mate.

I am pretty sure this is the aerial here >>  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfa-1000mW-Wireless-G-802-11g-WiFi-USB-Adapter-Antenna-/290417917014?pt=UK_Computing_USB_Wi_Fi_Adapters_Dongles&hash=item439e41bc56

its defo that model or one very very similar and same maker, I have the aerial upstairs in the cupboard otherwise I would be able to tell you if that is the exact model, but I am pretty sure it is

Alfa 1000mW Wireless G 802.11g WiFi USB Adapter+Antenna

I have the windows driver disk, do you or anyone else think it would be possible to somehow adapt the drivers that are on a cd or what ? this would be one way of antenna boosting reception on the cube tablet for sure if we could work a way out ?

Yes I know, and I know you have the best intentions mate etc thanks :) , BUT, at end of day when youve payed approx

£200 uk money for a tablet you shouldnt need to do anything like this, it should have came out the factory perfect and

not broken in the first place, plus the fact to do what the guy done in the video would mean you need to be good with

electronics and soldering etc and I'm not not, so I cant take that chance :( .

But thank you anyway for suggesting this, but its not for me :( .

 

I would rather try and get someone that is good at doing tricks with drivers and making the alfa antenna I have work with

the item, I dont know if its possible or not but as they say sometimes "anythings possible" I guess :)

p.s

the amount of people on this single forum alone that have complained about this issue with the "Cube U30GT2" tablet

is just proof that the factories in china are not trying hard enough to make the things properly, I think I said before that

they should maybe pay thier staff a bit more money in wages and training and also the factories should invest in better

equipment that makes sure these faults dont happen and then do "PROPER TESTING" before putting them on sale

and then everyone would be happy.

Yes it would cost us (the public) a bit more money to buy the things, but I would rather pay an extra $20 or so and get

something that is perfect rather than something that is nearly useless !

 

I mean, another example is of very very poor quality is that you cant even have a battery charger unit plugged in while

using the machine as it plays havoc with the touchscreen, so its not even one serious fault, there is two serious faults so

far that just on this forum alone we have uncovered, its not very good is it ?

Then you try and talk to them usually via "skype" which is a joke man, and they wont even mention that there is any faults

at all, they know they cant because they have obviously been told not to admit anything, its not right, and I'm sad as it is

a good tablet apart from these well known faults posted all over the internet.

 

You would think the companies in china would be reading these forums and doing something about it, but thier not by the

looks of it :(

________________________________________________________________

I was wondering now that I have raised the question again if maybe any techno wizards have joined the forum and have any idea if this would be at all possible what I originally asked in first question ?

 

Please let me know because if this could be figured out then not only would I be able to have great reception on my Cube U30GT2, we all would ! lol.

 

There are even more powerfull models than that but I would stick with that manufacturer as thier aerials work brilliant, just alway check beforehand if your going to buy

one for any reason that it is 100% gauranteed a genuine model and not a clone fake or else you could get problems.

 

If anyone has any ideas or is a programmer or something like that then please look into it and see what you think the chances are of getting it to work on the Cube U30GT2

as that would be the answer to all our prayers regarding this mad issue with the wifi/wireless or should I say no signal or hardly any wifi/wireless signal, lol !
