You do need to remember one thing... this unit, nor any wifi extender, will make a slow signal any faster... you are at the mercy of the wifi you are connected to. this will connect to distant WIFI signals, but will only communicate at the speed that the WIFI you're connected to can handle.


How did your installation work out. I'd like use my batwing antenna and fridge vent to run the the wire as well.

The new Rockwoods are including a WiFi ranger. I wonder if that is as good as this unit sounds to be.

I have used the WiFi Ranger twice now and Iím very satisfied with how it works. You connect it to the campgroundís access point and then tie your devices to it. A great option if your campground limits you to the number of devices you can connect.
