Designed for consumers in single story dwellings, the zBoost Metro amplifies cell phone signals for all phones and moblie devices and all US carriers (except Nextel). The zBoost Metro for the home or office extends an indoor cell zone up to 1500 square feet and does not require an outside antenna placement. The package includes everything you need: amplifier base unit, base unit antenna, power supply, coaxial cable (RG 59 Mini), signal antenna, and mounting hardware.

The use of radio distribution equipment that enhances, extends or amplifies a wireless signal may be prohibited without the consent of the wireless carrier upon whose network such equipment will be used. You should consult with your carrier before purchasing such equipment to use with that carrier’s service.

Designed for use in single-story urban homes, the Wireless Extenders zBoost Metro YX540 cell signal booster boosts indoor signal for all cellular mobile devices that use the 800 and 1900 Mhz frequencies–including all U.S. carriers (but not Nextel phones). The zBoost Metro enables you to take full advantage of your mobile phone’s voice, data and Internet services, including 3G high-speed data, streaming video, instant messaging, sending pictures, and more.

The zBoost Metro base station.

Like the entire line of zBoost products, the zBoost Metro features patent-pending technology that protects the carrier network, and the wide radio wave beam width directional antenna receives signals from multiple cell towers. Easy to set up, simply attach the signal antenna onto a window in an area in your home that offers the best signal (using the included suction cups) and then place the base unit in the area of your home where you want to strengthen the cell signal (see an illustration of the zBoost setup).

Setup Overview

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.

The zBoost Metro 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. Find the location on the window that provides the most bars of signal strength. Before proceeding, make sure that the intended surface is clean and clear of any dust. Then 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:

Move the antenna around the window–higher is usually better. 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. 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 Unit 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 near the middle of a room or mount it on an interior wall. This Base Unit uses an omni-directional antenna that delivers signal in a circular pattern around the 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. Increasing separation of the 2 antennas will optimize zBoost performance.

The Base Unit can be mounted either directly on a wall or placed on a flat surface (e.g., a bookshelf, desk, end table, etc.). For best results, keep the Base Unit off the floor and at least 2 feet away from other cords, metal objects or other wireless devices such as wireless routers or wireless access points. The zBoost Metro performs best when there are no obstructions between the zBoost Base Unit and your mobile device.

Run the provided coaxial cable between the Base Unit and Signal Antenna

Use the provided RG-59 (mini) coaxial cable to connect the Signal Antenna and the Base Unit. Coaxial connections can loosen when the cable is moved. Be sure the connections stay hand-tight.

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.

6/6 bars 3G Signal Strength @ Distance of 5ft from base Pros: Easy to set up. No vertical seperation requirements. increased signal strength for voice and data. Customer support is excellent. relatively small base. Grey color blends into background. quality workmanship/appears sturdyCons: signal degrades rapidly after about 5 ft. comes with a short length of cable. Coverage area is greatly overhyped.Summary: I like the product and will keep it for my office. I sit about 30 ft from window in a cubicle maze. I was able to place…

James A. Reagan says:

No more bars, but no dropped calls I live in an area that is about equidistant between cell towers. My best signal strength in the house is 2 bars or less. I lost calls all the time, sometimes just because I pivoted while talking and placed my head between the phone and the tower. The lower level of the house is partially sub-grade and I can never rely on maintaining a connection.This extender has solved all the above problems. I have a clear conversation now, but no increase in cell strength (still 2 bars), When I…
