WiFi extender

First time poster and not sure if this is the correct board for my question but here goes...

 

We go camping... Usually device free but during some down time we like to take advantage of the free WiFi that is offered. Sometimes the service is spotty. Is there such a device that will grab the signal out of the air and amplify it for us?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: WiFi extender

There are exetenders but I believe you have to have administrator access to the router you want to extend from

Re: WiFi extender

Greetings denisecowan,

 

Now that the weather is starting to cooperate here in Minnesota, camping sounds incredible! As bobberuchi previously stated, WIFI extenders do a fantastic job of give your signal that extra boost that but require you to be the owner and have administrator rights to be able to utilize it. Unfortunately it wouldn’t suit your needs if you’re looking to use it on a public access WIFI. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to respond!

I have netgear nighthawk. Tonight I turned off data and streamed music on my phone while mowing the lawn. Never lost my signal. Then I took my dog for a walk. I got five houses away before losing the stream
