WiFi EXTENDER

Does anyone know about wifi extenders for the RV. Or, something equivalent that will help in weak wifi RV parks. I am near the poles, but still its not very good.
Thanks

My brother just got one from Radio Labs and is using it this weekend for the first time. Said his table only detected 3 to 4 WiFi hotspots and the Radio Labs detected 25 or more. I think a couple of the YouTube RV channel guys have their gear as well.

I got this one and it works great in the majority of the parks I have been in.

I actually have not been in a park where it didn't help. PLUS, you are able to create a private network with your own security.

If you're near the pole and the wifi is still bad, then the campground wifi sucks and nothing you can do will help it.

The best way of testing it is to literally take your laptop or device and stand directly beside of the park wifi access point. If it's good there, but bad in your RV- then you can help it. If it's bad there, there's nothing you can do.

See if this helps:

I use a jefa tech. I haven't had to use the outdoor antenna yet, and it works fine. Gets good reception with just the small indoor one.
