  • 11n 150Mbps Outdoor USB CPE
  • Chipset: Ralink RT3070L
  • Built-in 12dBi panel antenna
  • 3 metre USB cable



The Solwise UTP2470-12 is an 802.11b/g/n Outdoor USB CPE device with a built-in 12dBi Panel Antenna.  This is an ideal long distance USB solution for Caravanners, Motorhomers or even for static buildings such as sheds or portable buildings. It has a weather proof housing and comes with a 3 metre USB extended cable.

The USB Panel antenna is great for getting Campsite WiFi into your Motorhome or Caravan.  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 USB Panel is a USB WiFi device is perfect for this. The antenna can be mounted to your ‘van using our optional suction bracket, allowing you to remove the kit when travelling.

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. 

Many campers are not bothering to take laptops on holiday anymore preferring the simplicity of an iPad 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 panel antenna 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.
