dwebster: The products they mention above are all sold on Search for ALFA. Not sure how much good they'll do you in Alaska, though; these only help if the campground you're staying in have a WiFi signal to boost or you have a Hot Spot you want to share from a distance.

BobFlorida -- I had not seen the Bearentender products before. They have some good prices but they would not work for me as they are all USB and therefore connect to only one device at a time. My Nano connects via Cat5 cable to a wireless router in the motorhome so I have my own internal wireless network. When we move to a new rv park I only have to setup the Nano and all my devices will be on the internet with no other changes. Beats the heck out of re-configuring all the laptops, cell phones, ipads and kindles every time.

we're in a campground now, using the Alfa antenna for the first time, ......I didn't want to mess with a repeater, so I bought two of the antennas, one for each of our two laptops,......the campground is having problems with their wifi so we're not benefiting from the Alfa right now, but we can see how the Alfa improves the signal that is here, ...until they get their system fixed later today, we've had to activate our Verizon hot spot, but I do believe the Alfa is going to live up to it's reputation

Also look at Pepwave Surf-On-The-Go. I picked this up and it definitly helped in most places. Fairly easy set up.

How it Works

Internet through WiFi is a two way street. You need the power to send your request to the access point, and the power to recieve the signal coming back. The internal adaptor in our devices usually has about .02 watts of sending power and about 1Db gain on the antenna recieving the signal coming back. The Alfa is great because it adds the power on both sides. The Alfa has a full 2 watts of sending power, and about 8Db gain on the recieve side. The RV park is responsible for the bandwidth and there is nothing you can do about that side of the equation. Our internal adaptors are not designed to capture a signal from long distances like in a RV park, add the Alfa booster and you can now connect to that signal with ease. They work!
Also, TechnoRV sends a complete learning series on how the system works and set-up, and great email, chat and phone support.
