New Flagstaff Pup someone has at the Campground d I'm staying at.

Here is a brand new Flagstaff looks to be the equivalent of the Rockwood HW277.
I like the built in WiFi which the new HW296 also has.
This at the Campground up by the trash dumpsters and indoor pool. Click image for larger version

One of my next purchases is a wifi router/repeater that I can put in the camper. Nice that its built in but pretty easy to add too. That way all the devices always connect to the same point and all you have to do is connect said point to the campground wifi.

My new 2514g came with a Sky4 wifi ranger. It claims to be able to pick up a wifi signal from a mile or 2 away. So far, it has not been able to detect the wifi signal at CGs we've been to. All 3 CGs only had wifi around the main office area and I was hoping the wifi ranger would pick it up at my site. At one CG we were about 1/4 of a mile from the main office, but the wifi ranger did not detect the wifi network. Works great in my driveway though! Lol

I would suggest getting warranty support on that before it gets too long on that. Nothing worse than a useless thing adding weight and taking up space :/

There's no Ethernet cable. Devices connect to it via Bluetooth. It's just a box thats attached to the top of the roof. The on/off switch for it is next to the furrion stereo just inside the door next to the outside light switch and the inside lights switch.

The thing works...If the wifi signal is not too far away and is strong enough. The signals I was trying to pick up were too weak. And too far away. We even went up to the office with our cell phones and tried to connect and you had to be standing in just the right spot to get it. I think in a CG that has wifi throughout the sites, it would definitely boost the signal. But I haven't been to such a CG yet.
