Long Range WiFi Signal Receiver + Antenna + Router Kit

Long Range WiFi Receivers - What are they? What do they do?

A long range WiFi receiver will allow you to always stay connected to the world of information wherever you go by increasing the coverage of public hotspots. Our splashproof and waterproof versions of long range WiFi receivers consist of a fully integrated WiFi antenna, radio, and router to provide hassle-free internet reception in your cabin, RV, boat, or anywhere else from up to 7 miles away.

How does the Wi-Fi Antenna Receiver Work?

Installation Options of Long Range Wi-Fi Signal Receiver Antenna

Simply connect the device to any standard WiFi router and access internet directly wirelessly or through a LAN. The network can easily be managed with a web browser through any device, without having to install any software.

Principle of Operation.

The high power bidirectional WiFi receiver will help improve the range of connectivity between any device and a WiFi hotspot. This is ideal if you need to connect to a WiFi signal that is normally out of range for your phone or computer while you're on a boat, recreational vehicle or campsite.

The device's omnidirectional antenna is used to communicate to, and from the Wi-Fi hotspot that you connect to. Just like any other antenna, this antenna needs a clear line of sight to the hotspot for best reception.

The long range WiFi receiver can be used in two different modes. In the first mode, the device is connected to any standard wireless router or wireless access point to create a WiFi hotspot to provide wireless internet access to ant mobile device including phones, tablets, or laptops.

With the second option, the long range WiFi receiver is connected directly to a laptop through its Ethernet port. This option will however only allow the laptop to have internet access.

Wi-Fi Signal Antenna Receiver Models.

Our fully integrated long range WiFi signal antenna receiver with modem is available in two different models. While the mode of operation and the technical specifications of the two models are identical, the level of protection against moisture and dust is different.

Model WIFI-BOOSTER-1 is splash proof when installed correctly.

Model WIFI-BOOSTER-2 which is considered heavy-duty has IPX5 water proof protection when installed correctly.

What exactly is IPX5 water proof protection?

IPX5 is a waterproof standard which is a much higher level of protection than merely splash proof. The International Protection Marking or Ingress Protection Marking (IP), classifies and rates the degree of protection that is provided against the intrusion of dust, accidental contact, and water. The level of protection is achieved through a combination of mechanical casings and electrical enclosures published by the International Electrotechnical Commission.

IPX5 indicates protection against water jets. The rating states that water projected by a 6.3 mm nozzle against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

Installation of Long-Range Wi-Fi Signal Booster/ Receiver + Antenna + Router Kit:

The long range WiFi receiver comes complete with the following parts to make installation simple and easy:

  1. Wi-Fi Antenna.
  2. L-Bracket.
  3. Hex-nut.
  4. U-Bolts x2.
  5. Clamping Bracket x2.
  6. Flat Washer x4.
  7. Spring Washer x4.
  8. Nut x4.
  9. Wi-Fi Radio.
  10. Coupling Ring (attached to the radio).
  11. End cap.
  12. Rubber Grommet.
  13. Power injector.
  14. Ethernet cable.
  15. AC power supply.
  16. DC power cord.

Mounting Options.

All the hardware required to mount the long range WiFi receiver in three different positions has been supplied:

  1. Horizontal rail: Assemble the U-bolts and brackets vertically.
  2. Vertical post: Square bolt-hole pattern on L-bracket allows U-bolts to be assembled horizontally to allow mounting on a vertical post.
  3. Flat Vertical surface: Mounting on a flat vertical surface can be done through screwing the L-bracket directly onto the mounting surface using screws (not included) to match the ¼” (6.35mm) mounting holes.

The device should always be mounted in such a way that the antenna points vertically upward and is in clear line of sight with the transmitting Wi-Fi hotspot. Avoid possible interference by mount the device away from other transmitters.

Conclusion.

A long range WiFi signal receiver will allow you to always stay connected to the world of information wherever you go by increasing the coverage of public wifi hotspots. Our splashproof and waterproof long range Wi-Fi receiver consists of a fully integrated WiFi antenna & router to attract signals up to 7 miles away.

  • I want to pick up wifi from my other hiuse about 400 ft away. Will this work for this?

  • HOW DOES IT DO AGAINST THINGS SUCH AS HIGH WINDS? Good question, Parker. If you’re going to invest in a long range WiFi antenna and it’s an outdoor one, you’re going to want something sturdy and reliable. From what I’ve heard, these are designed for outdoor use and like the old Timex watches, they take a licking and keep on ticking. The best long range WiFi antenna wouldn’t do you much good if a little wind disabled it, something the designers likely focused on.

  • I know about WiFi but I didn’t know there were ways to extend your WiFi signal (up to 7 miles? That’s amazing). I guess these long range WiFi antennas really are long range. I can see why these would be popular with boaters and campers as everyone wants WiFi today. However, while this blog says the equipment is insulated against moisture, etc., just how reliable is this insulation? How does it do against things such as high winds?

  • This is neat how the device increases your wifi signal. Does anyone know how cell phone boosters increase signals?

  • I can’t keep up with technology, and in this case, I’m glad I came across this wonderful device. I wasn’t aware that long range directional wifi antennas existed. While people will probably forever debate whether or not they want electronic devices with them when they go camping or boating, I see a good amount of people who seem attached to their Wi-Fi devices. This appears to be the small miracle techies have been looking for when they need their Wi-Fi to reach out wherever they may be, come rain or shine.
