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.
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.
(* Solwise have tested the USB WiFi Router with a variety of USB antennas/adapters based on the Ralink RT3070 Chipset. We have been advised by customers that they have also had success with the RT3050 and 8187L chipsets and also some 3G USB dongles including the unlocked Huawei E367.)
