Getting full signal WiFi in camp grounds

Just thought I would let everyone know how easy it is to boost your WiFi signal in camp grounds . We own a spot at a camp ground and we are at the end of owners row and the parks WiFi signal we were getting was 1 bar and very weak , I told the wife to cool down after she couldn't do her face book lol . The next day I called Techno RV and talked to them ( they are great ) and explained our problem and he told me what I needed , 1 receiver and 1 booster and so I ordered and had it less than 1 day . Very easy to set up and now we have full strength signal and it gives us our own hot spot with pass word protection . And if we move it will work at the next park we end up at ( we also camp with a club ) . Just thought I would let everyone know about TECHNO RV being that's all they do is stuff for RV's .

Very interesting. We're looking for a wifi booster and this looks like a simple set up. Looked up their web site. Which exact set up did you end up getting? The Alfa and a booster?

Thanks 14. I'll get the better half to study up on it---she's the computer geek around here. All I know how to do is turn it on and buy stuff from Amazon!!!

We like to sit outside and listen to the radio and I wifi in on my phone and connect it to my stereo inside by blue tooth and with a weak signal it kept coming and going , now it's on all the time , I set it up with my iPad , you don't have to use the computer to do so

Here's a video showing one method of improving you wifi. I found this after I set up my own system doing just what he did. It works great and is not that difficult to set up.

I just set up the Nano Station and Air Gateway as mentioned on the Outside Our Bubble Video. Works great at home, can't wait to try it on our upcoming trip.

Can anybody explain a bit more about how this works?? I see that everyone seems to like it but I can't understand how connecting to a very weak signal and then magnifying that signal to have an extended reach makes communication back to the origination point any faster or stronger. I have WiFi extenders at my house, but I place them where they still have a strong signal from the original access point and they simply expand the coverage area. In other words, if you only have a single bar of reception at your campsite, then the receiver for this device is only connecting to the main network through that signal. Your devices may show 5 bars or whatever in their connection to the receiver, but it's still working backwards with only a single bar. Just need some help understanding what it's doing for you. Thanks.
