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 its 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 Qualcomm Atheros Communication AR9271 chipset.
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.

This podcast sees Louise and Daniel discuss the Solwise Patriot range. The Solwise offering to suit your outdoor WiFi requirements whilst on the move is centred around the Patriot range. We have 2.4GHz and Dualband (2.4GHz/5GHz) devices that connect using USB or Ethernet, depending on your requirements. The units are available on their own or in kits. These WiFi adapters are ideal for your motorhome, caravan, leisure boat, home office, summerhouse or garage. With flexible mounting options, you can use the Patriot devices in a temporary location or a more permanent position to give you the most flexible way to get an internet connection.
'In the week or so that we’ve been using this we have found it invaluable. At our recent Twittercamp meet, five units were able to share one connection – one was even able to use a Now TV box thanks to the strength and stability of the signal. On our current site, my laptop struggles to pick up the site WiFi on it’s own, but through the aerial and router it’s fine – I’ve even been able to upload the video that will accompany this blog. It’s very quickly become an essential part of our caravanning kit as bloggers and I wouldn’t be without it now.'
