The puck antenna is the RS 5-in-1 Omni-Directional. It listed for $80. It has two WIFI leads, Two MIMO leads and one for GPS. It is currently showing unavailable on Amazon.
A friend recommended the King Router KMW 2000, which pairs with his T-Mobile 5G router from his house that he also travels with. I found the router quite good...was getting my home wifi well out in my driveway. My friend says it works well pulling in campground or moochdocking wifi.
I wanted to go with a 5g modem, but decide to wait until the newer tech Qualcomm X62/X65 chipsets equipped modems come down in price. Picked up an older 4g Jetpack on eBay for $10 for short term. Most places we go dont have 5g yet anyway. When I can find decent price on a Nighthawk M6 Pro I can just swap the Sim card over. My friend has a 5th wheel so only uses when parked and mostly campgrounds. We boondock ALOT, plus I can turn on the inverter and have internet when rolling.
As for setup the King router establishes my rigs network (even though the jetpack could also). The king picks up the jetpack for cellular, or any wifi it can access. That way all my devices (laptop, tablets, phones, smart TV) run off the same king network and dont have to be reconfigured every stop. When I go to a newer modem it will be a hard connection (CAT5) YL the King router.
I had tried NOMAD and have a thread about my experience in class B Forum. It seemed to work ok but 3rd party service resellers are risky.
