A 3D-printed wall mount for Netgear Nighthawk mobile 5G/LTE routers

I have recently designed and printed a wall mount for Netgear’s Nighthawk mobile 5G/LTE routers. More specifically a Nighthawk M5 (MR5200).

I have been inspired by an existing commercial wall mount for the Nighthawk M-series routers by FTS Hennig GmbH:

My inspiration: the wall-mount and antenna adapter from FTS Hennig.

Unfortunately, the mount is with a price tag of around 50 EUR rather expensive. So I decided to use our new lab 3D-printer and try do design it myself usings AutoDesk’s Fusion 360 software. The result is released here under a creative commons license:

The mount contains two three mounting holes which can be used for screwing it against a wall as well as some cutouts at the bottom for the accessibility of the TS9 antenna, USB-C and Ethernet ports.

My model rendered by AutoDesk Fusion 360.

For the TS9 antenna ports, I am using the following TS-9 to SMA adapters which can be screwed into the respective holes of the mount. This allows a permanent installation of an external 5G/LTA antenna while the router can be easily removed as the adapters align right with the connectors of the router.

Screw-in TS-9 to SMA Adapters.
Final print.
