That's the right idea! Most people here probably understand little about their computers, but they are all using them or they would never see or write any posts. Using an outside Access Point as a WiFi bridge is not necessarily an intuitive process, but the steps to use it are straight-forward and once learned can be done without understanding what it all means.

Don,

What is a WiFi bridge? (In basic terms!)

A device that connects two networks, without doing any packet routing (which would make it a router if it did). It simply passes everything back and forth between the networks and lets them sort it out.

A Cisco engineer would get into all of the layers involved in networking, and note that a bridge works in the top two and a router works in the top three, but that becomes greek to me as well

If you want to know more, here is a Wiki explanation. Its very similar to what Don first posted. Sometimes we have to read this stuff twice from different sources before it starts to click.

I'm no gear head and that's what I have to do when I'm a trying to learn about the mechanical stuff on me Bird... even so, I sometimes still don't get it.

Don and the other computer guru's,

With my limited WiFi pea-brain-ness, what then would ya'll recommend for improved internet access in a Wanderlodge? Antenna, booster, cables, ports, db gain etc?

Many thanks in advance!

Ryan/Michelle and Elliot - it is a pretty broad topic. It starts with the question: What type of internet access?

Excluding satellite, the three common ones are WiFi to an external source such as an RV Park's connection, Cellular via an aircard, and Cellular via phone. All three of those can have signals boosted, but each will have different choices.

Do you have a particular one in mind?
