Default External Wi Fi Antenna

I didn't know if I should put this here or in the Fulltimer Forum. As full timers we were always using our laptop's WiFi and wished we had a little more range. This is an exteranl antenna on a pole that sticks up higher than the bus and helps pick up marginal WiFi in campgrounds. It works well but we no longer need it as we finally sprung for a Verizon air card and no longer need it.

It is about $150 of stuff new that we want $75 for if anyone is interested.

Just email me or call our number below.

Thanks

If folks are too late on yours, I can recommend a wi-ex system. We go off into the middle of nowhere and with the optional yagi antenna get service when noone else can. It rebroadcasts signal to your phone or phones. We then pass data through the phone to a cradelpoint and broadcast WIFI to laptops. The cradlepoint will take an air card as well. I love the system as it is straightforward and easy. Through a little wireless security on the cradlepoint and you are not the new free hot spot...JOE sends

Default External Wi Fi Antenna

I attach the pole to one of the rear view mirrors with a bungee and then feed the line in through the driver window and plug it into the USB port on the computer which we use on the "bulletin board desk" sitting on our steering wheel. Pretty simple. You have to install the software on your computer and I have upgraded it a time or two.

And as I said, the antenna is pretty high up there. It sticks up higher than the bus. It won't pick up huge distances of course, but it supposedly extends the range a couple thousand feet. We primarily used it in campgrounds when the Wi Fi was marginal and we wanted better reception. Y'all have probably been in those campgrounds when you have had trouble getting the advertised WiFi and they said, "Gee if you had only been in Site 2 right here by the office instead of Site 124 way back there, you would have had no trouble."

Oh yeah...
