One of the many things I’ve been thinking about when considering RV’ing is Internet connectivity. How do I ensure I stay connected? I’ve researched solutions from several companies, and gotten some great ideas from Technomadia.com. I think I’ve finally come up with a good workable solution that will have multiple sources of Internet that I can select to keep me connected. Here’s basically what it looks like
The WiFi Ranger Elite and WiFi Ranger Go2 are sold as a package from WiFi Ranger. The Elite is a signal booster and antenna combo and the Go2 is a router that has multiple inputs and a small ethernet switch. It can use the ethernet ports or USB as Internet gateways. It then sets up an internal WiFi network that you connect to. Internet can come from the RV Park via the Elite antenna or via a hotspot tether to the Go2 via USB.
Since RV parks and campgrounds don’t always have the strongest cellular signals need some way to amplify those signals. To bring in these weak signals for the Hotspot (or cell phones) I’m planning on also adding a signal booster like the one from WeBoost. It will work with all North American cellular networks and will boost data and voice signals. And will work with more than one phone at a time. It comes with an external antenna that can be mounted on the RV or even your vehicle while you’re traveling.
So there you have it. With multiple inputs and amplifiers this should pull in Internet where ever I happen to be.
