Catch it outside, use it inside.


When the campsite offers WiFi but your ‘van is right at the other end of the site you may need something to help you get a better signal, the Solwise Patriot-USB is perfect for this.

The antenna will receive the campsite WiFi signal and terminate this inside your ‘van with a USB connector which you plug straight into your laptop.  The Solwise Patriot-USB is a long-range wireless 802.11b/g/n outdoor USB CPE with 5M USB cable. The Patriot-USB includes a convenient Utility for scanning available networks and saving preferred networks. Security encryption can also be configured by this utility.

Many campers are not bothering to take laptops on holiday anymore preferring the simplicity of an iPad, tablet or just using their smart-phones to keep in touch with social networking or to find local attractions. These ‘smart’ devices rarely have a USB port and this is where the Solwise USB WiFi repeater comes in.  The Solwise USB WiFi repeater supports outdoor USB adapters to repeat the WiFi signal to any indoor environment.  The USB plug from the Patriot is plugged into the WiFi repeater which then creates a mini hotspot in your ‘van allowing you to connect your iPad, Smartphone, notebook, laptop or handheld games console to the campsite WiFi.

By using this kit from Solwise you may even be able to use free WiFi hotspots some distance away, making this kit ideal for use with the BT Fon service and other services.
