I'm more interested in option 2. I have plenty of movies on my laptop, but it would be fun to be able to stream anywhere in the campsite. I would never pay data rates to stream movies. What a waste of money! Anyway, to me option 2 seems better for most campers who want to keep the kids away from nature and plugged in to the machine.

Careful with the judgey-ness; not all of us are camping.

What is the range on #2 and can the storage be expanded with cheap SATA drive(s)? And what kind of cost are we talking about?

I am still vetting a solution.

Asus ac68u with a 500gb had to host naps from the ddwrt app in router. Stream the video to chromecast on TV or to tablets as desired.

Plus set router in WDS mode to act as a repeater for and in camp WiFi or conned to hotspot. The router is connected 110 but pore supply can be dc direct.

The trick will be if I need dbi booster or external antenna for WDS.


It is nice as you can change WiFi source and connect in router and never have to worry about downstream devices changing networks or re-connecting on weak signals.

Use a WD with a 1tb usb. First camper with 2 tv's so I'll have to think of a new mod. Most likely a d-link wireless router with the usb nas port. Yes, when I talk to non camping people about camping their thoughts are we are roughing it in tents in the mud...not that we all have the creature/techie comforts like home.

Plex + Iphone + Tmobile unlimited + HDMI adapter is my perfect solution

Simple question here. Been rving for two years but still a NFG. As we all know, most wifi setups in rv parks work only marginally. I'm thinking about the Jackpack through Verizon, which is my carrrier.

Anyone out there with experience with using the Jackpack? Does it work well? What don't you like and is the monthly cost reasonable?

My husbandís Jackpack works everywhere he gets Verizon signal, so most places we go. I donít know about the cost because his work pays for it. He travels a good bit and needs it for work.

I use a Jetpack and it works.

What all cellular service companies charge is highway robbery.
