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.

Features Internet connection through USB or RJ-45 WAN port.
Local network connection through one 10/100Mbps Ethernet port.
DHCP for dynamic IP configuration.
Firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection, client privileges, and NAT.
NAT also enables multi-user Internet access via a single user account, and virtual server
functionality (providing protected access to Internet services such as Web, FTP, e-mail, and Telnet).
VPN pass-through (IPsec, PPTP, or L2TP).
User-definable application sensing tunnel supports applications requiring multiple connections.
Easy setup and management through web browser interface on any operating system that
supports TCP/IP.
Compatible with all popular Internet applications.
Applications Wired LAN — This USB WiFi Repeater provides connectivity to wired Ethernet devices, making it
easy to create a network in small offices or homes.
Internet Access — This device supports Internet access through a WAN connection. As many DSL
providers use PPPoE, PPTP, or L2TP to establish communications with end users, the USB WiFi
Repeater includes built-in clients for these protocols, eliminating the need to install these services on
your computer.
Shared IP Address — The USB WiFi Repeater provides Internet access for up to 253 users using a
single shared IP address account.
Virtual Server — If you have a fixed IP address, you can set the USB WiFi Repeater to act as a
virtual host for network address translation. Remote users access various services at your site using a
static IP address. Depending on the requested service (or port number), the USB WiFi Repeater can
route the request to the appropriate server (at another internal IP address). This secures your
network from direct attack by hackers, and provides more flexible management by allowing you to
change internal IP addresses without affecting outside access to your network.
DMZ Host Support — Allows a networked computer to be fully exposed to the Internet. This
function is used when NAT and firewall security prevent an Internet application from functioning
Security — The USB WiFi Repeater supports security features that deny Internet access to
specified users, or filter all requests for specific services. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and MAC
filtering provide security over the wireless network.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) pass-through — The USB WiFi Repeater supports the pass-through
of three of the most commonly used VPN protocols – IPsec, PPTP, and L2TP. These protocols allow
remote users to establish a secure connection to another network. If your service provider supports
VPNs, these protocols can be used to create an authenticated and encrypted tunnel for passing
secure data over the Internet (that is, a traditionally shared data network).
IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) — Encrypts and authenticates entire IP packets and encapsulates
them into new IP packets for secure communications between networks.
PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) — Provides a secure tunnel for remote client access to a
PPTP security gateway. PPTP includes provisions for call origination and flow control required by ISPs.
L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) — Merges the best features of PPTP and the Layer 2 Forwarding
(L2F) protocol. Like PPTP, L2TP requires that the ISP's routers support the protocol.

Article - What is a Wireless Repeater - Sometimes referred to as WiFi Booster, WiFi AP Repeater, Access Point Repeater, WiFi Extender.

A Wireless Repeater is a piece of equipment that takes an existing wireless signal and repeats the signal from the wireless repeater. The cost of having a WiFi repeater is that the signal is halved each time it is ‘repeated’. This means that if you have 100mbps throughput at the point of origin, you will have 50mbps at the first repeat, 25mbps at the second and so on.
Wireless repeaters are best used in open areas where there is less interference from objects as wireless signals, in general, are not great at penetrating through objects or walls.
For providing temporary wireless coverage around your home or to cover a blackspot a wireless repeater is a good solution, however, if you need higher throughput than the repeater will offer you may wish to consider a HomePlug solution.
