Try an external ?directional? antenna, (like the Hawking HAI15SC Hi-Gain antenna with a 2dBi to 15dBi boost), the steel in your trailer can interfere with the WiFi signal reception under some conditions in ?fringe? locations. Another option could be (if you have the $$ and the park management is willing maybe to even pay part or most of the cost) to get them to install a ?range-extender? access point router (and you could get the compatible receiver) which would give you a better chance of signal reception over distance. Something like the Hawking Wireless Access Point and Hi-Gain Signal Booster Kit, which can boost the power output to 500mW (standard average is 90mW). I?m sure other manufactures have comparable ?booster? equipment, you would need to take a look at what is available to you.
I am currently living in an RV Park with free broadband WiFi available. Unfortunately though, where I'm positioned I have no reception of the isgnal. Occasionally my computer will pop up sayign that it's detected the network but when I try to connect it will lose it. Now I'm afraid I really dont' knwo much at all about Wireless Networking... is there some other sort of card I can get that will allow me to connect? Anyhitng I can do to boost the signal? How about an external antenna? I have an older 5th wheel with a steel body instead of fiberglass... woudl that be wreaking havok?
Sorry to be so clueless, but what can I do? Also...*if* i can connect.. what woudl it take for me to extend my network to somone else who is also having the same problem but who is 9 spots further away form the Router? Is it possible for me to purchase a router and share my connection with teh main access point over my router?
Thank you for all of your help
