What Is WiFi?

WiFi refers to wireless radio communication between computers and related devices. WiFi Internet radio uses this technology and allows you to listen to over 18,000 stations in your living room, bedroom, kitchen or anywhere within range of the signal from a wireless router. To do this, you need a wireless router (in some cases an internet service provider will supply a wireless router/modem combination when you subscribe to their services). The router directs information from the internet to one or more devices such as computers, mobile phones or WiFi internet radios. Using a WiFi Internet Radio requires two things: a WiFi router (or a direct Ethernet cable connection, if available) and broadband internet access. An electronic device cannot communicate with a WiFi router unless it has a WiFi receiver/transmitter (otherwise called a WiFi card or module) built-in. Many electronic devices, such as our WiFi internet radios, have these built-in WiFi modules and can access the internet anywhere within range of your wireless router.

Broadband is a high speed internet connection that is usually sent over your phone line, through your cable TV system or by satellite. Streaming audio and video are much better over a broadband connection, since the faster speed allows for higher quality streams. With internet at these speeds, a vast wealth of information is available to you. Whether your preference is music, news, education or other forms of entertainment, broadband delivers it quickly.

WiFi Internet Radios provide crystal clear audio without crackles or pops no matter how far away the program originates. Our WiFi Internet Radios make it easy to find what you want to hear by organizing content according to location, music style, talk, news and more. The content lists are maintained and provided by aggregators like Reciva, Vtuner and others. C. Crane has no control over content or providers for internet radios. There are now 18,000+ radio stations to choose from through your WiFi Internet Radio with no subscription fees or contracts.WiFi Internet Radios work without a computer and can be set up in just a few minutes.

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.

    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
