The USB WiFi Router/Repeater is designed to support an Outdoor USB Antenna and can be used to connect to any WiFi network.
The setup routine takes just a couple of minutes and once a connection is established with the neighbourhood WiFi network the USB WiFi Router relays the internet to it's own private WiFi service. Set-up is completed in your browser which means this device is suitable for any operating system.
For example, this kind of set up makes it ideal for sharing a campsite's WiFi network inside your Motorhome or Caravan.
A high gain USB/antenna like the Solwise Patriot boosts a weak site-WiFi signal to a single USB equipped device - such as a Laptop.
The addition of a USB WiFi Router enables this boosted signal to be shared amongst all your WiFi devices.
In fact the USB-WiFi-Repeater can be partnered with any USB WiFi antenna based on the Railink RT3070 chipset.
For instance, the Solwise USB Panel Antenna offers a high-gain directional alternative to the Patriot for a more targeted connection.
This product is sometimes referred to as WiFi Booster, WiFi AP Repeater, Access Point Repeater, WiFi Extender.
A mains power adapter is included. This USB WiFi Router can also be powered from a 12V caravan supply using the 9V car adapter listed in the accessories.
