Let me add my vote for the Nanostation 2 Loco, by Ubiquity. $80

I installed a little TP-Link Nano Router TL-WR702N. $20

Or as Mork would have called it: Nano Nano.

Essentially all my gear connects all time time to my Internal network (Nano Router) while the Nanostation connects to the CG wifi.

So, when I arrive at a new CG, with my computer or tablet, I logon to the Nanostation and connect it - to the CG,it appears to be a single device connecting.

The Nano router then provides access to all my devices.

All of this works well, but is not for everyone, as you do need some decent 'geek skills' to put it together.

Good luck.

Denis

I use the Hawking products, Hawking Technologies Store , for my camping repeater. Can't remember model that I have, but also purchased the outside antenna and cable for added signal strength, which I haven't had to use yet. They have a 15% off sale going on now, just enter htech for code. Not an employee or get any compensation, just passing along info for anyone interested.

I just bought a Amped Wireless high power range extender. Amped Wireless TAP-EX High Power Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Unit has a touch screen and with my external antenna this should be easy to setup.

I will use another access point like many others to use with my devices.

Looks like you have to join their website. Is there any information they offer that a good 'ole fashion web search can't find. Seems to me the posters in here, have given some really good ideas to acquire wifi signals while on the road. Just sayin'

Yep, as I said- you have to buy the eBook. I'm about 50 pages in and it's pretty comprehensive.

Park wifi (open) <--> my DD-WRT router configured as a wireless client / a SECURE bridged wireless AP <--> 3 laptops (1 running a Plex media server), 2 Android tablets, 3 Android smart phones, a wireless 5-in-one printer, 2 smart TV's, a DirecTV HD reciever, a Google Chromecast and a Roku XS HD.
Dutch,
Thanks for posting this.. I have been looking for a while for someone who has done this with a linksys and dd-wrt.

In the setup of dd-wrt, did you choose Repeater Bridge mode?

I have plenty of other questions to ask about this as well.

- Jay

I've been looking at a system called WiFi Ranger Elite, as seen on youtube rvGeeks. Think I'll check into some of the systems you folks are using, as the WiFi Ranger is around $500+, but says it pulls in WiFi 10120 miles out!

I don't think mine has ever pulled wifi from 10-thousand miles out!

I actually find that with my unlimited data plan that I rarely use the range feature of the WifiRanger. I like it for being an internal router for my hotspot. It's basically the backbone of my network.

When I do need campground wifi, they've been decent enough that I got service at the sites.

It IS expensive, but you can't beat it's user friendliness with a stick.
