    The standard airwave will not boost wimax. IF you are in range of the airwave use a wifi connection, if you have one.

    Wimax repeaters are on the way, but they are being shipped to commercial uses first and mostly outside of the united states.

    South korea has sucked down about 15 million soho's, wimax personal repeaters.

    I agree with this.

    The Airave (Airvana) does not boost your 4G connection, but will boost your 3G connection. Chances are, if you are in range of the Airave you are also in range of your WiFi. Therefore, use WiFi.

    i use wifi, but 4G is faster than my wifi package, so i'd rather use 4G. i do have the Airvana and was told by tech support that it would be just a firmware update to enable 4G boost. not sure how true that was but it would be nice.
