Are you wanting remote Internet access when on the road or are you a full timer parked more than traveling?

All major cell phone companies offer data plans via a WIFI hot spot thru most smart phones or an external module such as Verizon's jet pack. In Florida there is a company named clear that offers 4g data over a WIFI hot spot also using a external adapter. So depending on where you live I'm sure one of these solutions should help.

Most wireless carriers now offer mobile hot spots. It's a small card that works similar to a cell phone and sends a Bluetooth or wifi signal to the devices of your choice. Or, depending on your phone you may be able to use the phone as a hotspot.

you can buy a very inexpensive linksys router that can be set as a wireless repeater with a switch on the back. connect your smart phone to it as a hotspot and youre done.

Our phones can be used as an Internet hotspot, so we just use the connection for our laptops.

I am looking at buying a set-up from .jefatech.com/product/RV-KIT-REPEATER/ . It looks like it would spice up the CG WIFI up to a 1/2 mile line of site. It has an outside antenna.

I bought a wifi repeater and external antenna from Radio Labs. Works great, I can pull a signal from about two miles away.
