6. Thanks - I'm also wondering about

the effect of cold on the crappy external signal booster I bought. It worked for awhile indoors snuggled against an outside wall facing the remote router, then quit picking up signals. When I rigged up outdoors yesterday, worked fine. Now I'm indoors again - wanted to see if the signal 'booster' would work in an open window facing toward the distant router. It does, fine.

But that leads me to another pesky question: since signal boosters don't generate their own heat, how much cold can they stand? If less, as I imagine, are there ways to protect them somewhat from cold temperature while not interfering in their signal reception?

This winter I'd far prefer to be sitting in the nice warm house listening to music while I work on the computer, and I could always set the 'booster' on the outside window sill, then lower the window with something to prevent pressure on the cord and yet stop the air draft in or out of the house. Not too worried about heat on the booster because in summer it's shaded by a huge rose bush.
