I have the wifi ranger. Used it a lot this summer when campground would allow only 2 connections without paying a premium. The wifi ranger showed up as 1, but we had 6 devices using it.

The Wifi Ranger is probably the simplest booster to use but, since I'm a retired networking specialist, I use a different approach. All of the internet devices in my RV are connected to my RV router which is set up to mimic the one in my house. The router's WAN connection (to the internet) is handled by a Ubiquiti Nanostation M2HP radio.

I've yet to find a campground that this arrangement will not connect to. The only issue is that the Ubiquiti radio is not a consumer device and requires a significant amount of networking knowledge to set up for use. Once it's configured, it takes only a minute or two to connect it to a local wifi network. As far as the RV park's network is concerned, I have only one device connected to it.

I made full post elsewhere, but in a nutshell I can see in direct line of site, 5 different Wifi towers. Every device I have picks up all of them, be it a weak signal, and many more signals in the park. The Jefa tech with the out door antenna will be lucky to pick up 2 total.

I've had very good luck with the Alpha system I just got. Haven't had time to figure it all out but it appears there's a strong security protocol built in. At home all my phones, tablets and computers see only the two networks in my house. The Alpha sees eight different networks, one off them verified almost mile away and almost straight line of sight with just a few trees in the way.

It connected well to a campground last week but as soon as I went over a hill and lost line of sight it couldn't connect. However, connecting my iPhone direct to the CG wifi I got a speed test of 0.9 mbps. Connecting via the Alpha showed 5.8 mbps. Very solid performance using it to view Netflix and other network streaming services.

I built a PVC pole mount for the antenna that extends it over four feet above the TT roof and will get to try it out next week. And, before you ask, the antenna pole is removed before traveling. Hopefully I won't forget to take it down.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
