Are you fed up of not being able to get an internet connection whilst away, or if you can it is so far away from your campsite that it is weak and slow?? The new High power, long-range WiFi antenna from acdctv will change that. Using a 16dBi high gain antenna it can connect to a far-off WiFi signal, boost it and provide you with a fast and reliable internet connection which can then be shared among several devices using your laptop’s existing wireless network card. Just simply pole mount the weatherproof, lightweight unit outside of your vehicle or vessel and run the 5-meter cabling to connect via USB to your computer. This is also ideal for mounting on a jockey wheel. The 16dBi Directional Panel Antenna compatible with B/G/N is capable of boosting a signal up to 1.5km in ideal conditions. The range on this antenna is top quality due to it being a directional antenna. It is tried and tested that a directional antenna will outperform an omnidirectional antenna as the unit is focusing all of the power of the signal in a much more concentrated beam, and will not pick up on any interference.
