CC Vector Home WiFi Repeater System

The CC Vector Home WiFi Repeater System can connect to an available WiFi network about 300 ft. away. In our extreme distance tests we connected to a network a mile away (with no obstructions). The Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 is small and can be mounted to a window with suction cups or outside for best reception. This system works for a large home or getting a signal from across the street.

If there is an available weak WiFi signal that's too far away for good performance the CC Vector combined with the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 can latch on and repeat the strong signal over a wider area. The reception exceeds other WiFi range extenders designed for in-home use and the system works on all smartphones, tablets, PC's, MAC and smart TV's. There are two available Ethernet jacks on the Vector for hardwiring additional computers or routers. The repeater is capable of supporting two users watching standard quality video like Netflix™ or several users browsing the Internet simultaneously. As distance is increased, speed is reduced. It is a hotspot creator that can broadcast to all your devices of up to 10,000 square feet depending on obstructions. It uses the most popular WiFi band at 2.4GHz and the setup is simple and easy for basic computer users.

Comes with full C. Crane Technical Support

Good value, easy to setup, but not a 'magic bullet'
Pros
The only real option for Wi-Fi boosting with current versions of MacOS
easy setup
creates local network
Cons
cable routing a little awkward
Best Uses
extending networks at large homesites
improving speed at public Wi-Fi hotspots while traveling
While this may be ideal for stationary applications (hence the name home), it still gives good improvement in mobile (RV) use. We get a faster connection when using it, and can usually connect to distant routers from at least 100' farther away than if we didn't have it. Often, simply being inside our RV is enough to block incoming Wi-Fi signals, so just being able to have the antenna mounted on the outside lets us use our laptops and phones inside the RV when we otherwise couldn't.

Super WiFi Rereater
Pros
Easy set up. Compact.pulls in distant AP's.
Cons
Antenna cord that comes with standard package is too short for motorhome use.
Best Uses
Pulling in unknown AP's Great for using at RV parks that provide WiFi.
if your residence has separate buildings I can see that it would be very helpful also
After 9 months of use, my unit failed to show any available AP's or other secured personal WiFi. Contacted support. Stayed on phone with them for 45 minutes the first time. They suggested that I try using a different browser such as Google chrome, etc. Still no joy. They immediately sent me another whole unit which did not identify anything. Called service back and said they were going to send me another one that had a firmware update. Apparently when Apple updated their IOS the repeater would not recognize any AP's The updated one worked perfectly. On our first use with the new one in a motorhome, we were parked on Perdido Bay. I fired up the unit and it picked up the parks AP and about 10 more locals using their system, hotspot, etc. directly across the bay is another campground (KOA). It is also on the water with a direct line of sight. IT IS 2.5 MILES AWAY! Incredible! In closing, I cannot say enough about the support staff of CCrane. Very knowledgable, courteous, and determined to get things right. They are true professionals and CCrane is fortunate to have these type of employees working there. The only regret is that I don't have the longer antenna cord but who knows, they may send me one after reading this review. Great job from a happy camper.

Very strong signal and performance
Pros
Easy to assemble
Easy to configure
Best Uses
Extending your WiFi range
I bought this kit because out in my garage my Wifi was weak and I couldn't stream youtube video's and even email was on again/off again. Once I opened the box, it took me about 30 minutes to get the various parts hooked together and mounted on a wall of the garage. I followed the instructions for a quick start, and set it up to repeat my main wifi router's signal. My laptop went from one or two bars for reception strength to the top: four bars. Streaming youtube is perfect, no different than plugging an ethernet cable into my router directly. This kit really performed for me. I can easily perform any task on the interweb out in my garage as easily as I can anywhere else in home. I highly recommend this product bundle.

Ability to capture signal and repeat it
Got this system up and running with no problems. I share wifi with my neighbor since this is my 2nd home. Hardest part was positioning my antenna to capture the best signal. I know have it connected to my own router to get the best reception throughout my house. Very happy with product.

Good product, be careful with setup
Pros
Great range with the antenna
Cons
Supplied setup instructions do not provide optimum speed
The antenna has great range, as advertised. I purchased it to extend my signal to an external garage, and it does so very well. After the easy set up, however, I had very poor speed, only 2Mb/sec. I needed to use the advanced setup options to choose 11n only and change the channel bandwidth from 20 to 20/40. And possibly most important, I had to place the antenna as far away as possible (the whole length of the supplied cable) and several feet higher than the Alfa R36 USB router. After making those changes, the speed I was getting increased by more than 6x, to be comparable to what I was previously getting with a Netgear extender (which has nowhere near the same range).

Works great, but a warning!
Pros
it puts out a great signal that easily covers the house and part of my yard.
Cons
The set up seems easy BUT if you have a Belkin the IDs might clash and the unit will not work.
The only way to fix it is to change the ID number of the unit so it won't conflict. I called tech support support and they walked me thru it quickly.
Best Uses
If you have a large house or in my case the wifi is in a different building that doesn't quite reach into the house. This makes it so you have full power by repeating the signal.
Tried to set it up after tech support closed for the night. Couldn't get it to do anything but put out a strong signal with no internet After discovering the problem it worked better than I had hoped.

My wireless router is in a room downstairs, whereas my computer is upstairs on the other side of the house. The repeater system allowed me to get the full 100 meg out of my router. Amazing.

Can't wait for the Road Test!
Best Uses
Will be using this in our Motorhome while traveling.
Thanks for the reviews! I went ahead and ordered the Super Wifi 3 with the Hotspot Repeater and got it last week. I took it out to my Motorhome to do a preliminary test. after closely following the instructions, I was able to connect to my home with just the antenna and I had 2 Bars showing. After firing up the hotspot repeater the signal went full scale! I then tried it with my Amazon Fire Stick and was able to stream a few YouTube videos and movie content. Of course streaming at an rv park might not always be possible with their old wifi systems. I was able to connect my iPhone and Kindle Fire HD to the internet with no problem. I can not wait to hit the road in our MH to give it the real test. Richard Smith Magalia, CA

Good Combo!
Pros
Works as advertised.
Cons
No negs at this point.
Although not an expert on WiFi set-ups, I took a chance this combo would be compatible with my iPad & Apple TV after reading a few reviews. I didn't want to have to take my laptop with me so I set up the antenna/repeater here at the house, then transferred them to my camping trailer on the side of the house. Picked up a couple of dozen local routers' signals including my home office connect right away. That was fine, but would this work with my iPad in the woods? Happy to report, it worked great. Just use the Safari browser and tap in the IP address to pull up the Alfa page. Go through the site survey routine to locate all the nearby routers. I found the local RV camp router and proceeded to set it up. The combo didn't seem to work at first, but after I got over my button-punching frenzy, just stepped away for a few mins and voila!, was tickled to see the Alfa repeater/Crane WiFi antenna combo had connected and was up and running...apparently, after tapping in all the data it takes a few mins for the signals to make the round-trip, etc. Anyway, everything works as advertised. Looking forward to camping this summer with all the connections firing!

  • How come the USB Light is not lit up on the repeater?

    The USB light will not illuminate until the repeater is successfully connected to another network.

  • I enter the IP Address in my browser but I keep getting "Unable to Load Page". What am I missing?

    Make sure the WiFi on your device is connected to "CCrane-***".

  • Why can't I get to Step D of the Quick Start Guide? No networks are listed.

    1. Check the cable to the USB Antenna and make sure it is pushed in all the way to the antenna’s cable.
    2. Make sure you're using the Main USB cable connection to the CC Vector. Do not use the single floppy USB cable (not needed).
    3. Make sure to type the IP Address into the Address bar of your browser at the top of the screen. Do not type it in a Search Bar.
  • After I clicked "Next" in Step E my screen shows "Saving" for a very long time.

    You should only need to wait for 1-2 minutes or until the USB light comes on the CC Vector. You will need to go to your WiFi settings on your device to select "CCrane-***". This can also happen if you have WiFi Assist active. This is when your WiFi device automatically disconnects from networks and connects to other known networks (popular in Windows 10 & iOS7+).

  • How can I change the LAN IP address of the CC Vector?

    1. Go into the CC Vector setup. Mouse over the Advanced tab and click on LAN under Network Settings.
    2. Change the IP address from 192.168.8.1 to your desired address. Write down this address for later access.
    3. Click Apply.
    4. Wait until the USB light reappears. You may need to wait for a while until it shows on the wireless device "Connected/Internet Access". The time can range from a few seconds to 10 minutes, depending on the router.
    5. If no change, power cycle the CC Vector.

    In order to access the Repeater settings in the future, you will need to enter your new IP address into your browser instead of 192.168.8.1. Make sure to write the new IP address in your instructions.
