Roboot the system about 3 times a day. Yes I've moved it and I do the same thing, as far as I got is the sidewalk.
And I don't want handoff, i have it disabled.
Ok. If you move the MicroCell then it needs to re-establish itself with one, the GPS signal (which it needs to have constant connection), and two, the local tower. Apparently, when the MC first connects, it adjusts its power output based on the local tower strength. In theory, the MC should be the strongest signal in your house because the outside tower signal is weak. Once you establish connection, the power output from the MC is set. If you continually move the MC around, and reboot, then the MC signal output will change. You need to pick one spot in your house that has the stongest MC signal and leave it. If you are too far away from a window, then you need to use an external antenna for GPS lock. Constantly re-booting the system can alter the signal strength and ultimately the connectivity with the phone. What kind of phone do you have?
