Careful. There's some toes that might get steeped on.

A) wifi will be way too slow to stream.
B) that would be kind of rude, to hog all the bandwidth even if it did work.

I just had a wifi booster tube and repeater delivered from TechnoRV. Will let you know how it works after next week.

Last weekend I was streaming Amazon Prime, Netflix on my FireTV on the CG wifi. Technically it can be done but relies on CG bandwidth which we all know is ok at best.

Some CG will kill the wifi when they see someone eating up a lot of bw. If you have Amazon Prime you can download movies and keep them for 48 hours I believe. We do that for trips when rain is in the forecast.

WiFi is for everyone... What about other people?

During prime season I'm sure using CG wifi would be useless. There is xfinity wifi available where I normally go. Once I can figure out how to get connected via my wifi booster I will set.

I use one if I can't get a reliable connect. These don't steal bandwidth from others or allows you to hog bandwidth but enables you to hold a connection. If I have good connect that doesn't drop I don't use it nor do I use it to stream video. This one sets up a laptop like it is a hot spot then you connect your devices though the laptop.
