The Network Extender enhances indoor calling and 3G data coverage to provide better service for your Verizon Wireless mobile device. It’s an extension of our network placed directly in your house or small business office. The Network Extender is compatible with all Verizon Wireless devices and works like a miniature tower. It plugs into your existing high-speed Internet connection to communicate with the Verizon Wireless network, which makes it easy to install. One point to be noted most importantly is that the Network Extender is not a router and therefore is not Wi-Fi capable.
Your Network Extender will work with most broadband or DSL connections (from Verizon or another Internet service provider). The minimum broadband speed required varies based on which Network Extender you have:
1 Mbps to support voice
Up to 3.1 Mbps to support the maximum EVDO data rate for the Combo Network Extender (SCS-2U01)
The Network Extender requires a broadband Internet connection, but it doesn’t require a computer to provide wireless coverage. However, you do need a computer (or other Internet device) to manage your device access settings through My Verizon.
If you have a computer, it doesn’t need to be turned on to use your Network Extender as the Network Extender is designed to work with Verizon Wireless Mobile devices only.
