I have the Pepwave SOHO and purchased it from the 3G store. They recommended an external antenna and that is what I ordered along with cable and adapters. The adapter from the cable to the router was the wrong one. I did not have much luck explaining this to the 3G store and ended up getting the correct adapter from Amazon. The two pictures show what I ordered from the 3G store and Amazon to get my system up and running. The antenna is mounted on the roof and has added extra range for me connecting to the campground Wi-Fi ( note that this antenna will also work with cell phone boosters but not for both at the same time).

Homeless, I would suggest calling the 3G store; tell them which model Pepwave you have and what you are wanting to do. They will be happy to pick the the items you need. I am not affiliated with them, just who I used after researching. 1-866-347-8673

Get the two internal antenna's and don't bother with external. You have gain controls for the router in the software and it is easier to turn the power up on the router. Since campground WiFi is just about worthless, my Pepwave acts mostly as a router for my MiFi.
