Custom Station to Router WiFi System

*WiFi router not included, but can be bought from your local electronics store if you don't already have one.

This is an easy way to create a router station just about anywhere, using a distant WiFi signal. Once set up, just plug in a WiFi router (not included) and it works like a normal Internet connection. It can connect to any 2.4ghz WiFi signal or hotspot where you have password permission. Our 15dBi Point to Point Parabolic Antenna (sold separately) is recommended. Normal incoming reception is about ½ mile but can reach up to 3 miles depending on the originating antenna and interference from other nearby networks. Similar to the Long Range WiFi Bridge System but requires only half the equipment.

You will need to know the exact network name (SSID) and wireless password (Wireless Encryption Key) you wish to connect to. For example: Linksys® or Netgear®. We can configure an outdoor WiFi receiver to pull in this network for you. Once you have the antenna mounted and kit plugged in, it should begin to work. Plug the supplied ethernet cable into your computer or wifi router, and you're done. If later on, you have the desire to connect to a different network, we can walk you through the process over the phone or you can follow the included directions.

It is best to have perfect line of site to the network, without obstructions, or at least be able to pull in 1-bar of signal at your location using a laptop. You should get 400-500% better wifi reception if you mount the antenna outside and up high (recommended).

Realistically, you should be able to to receive a wifi signal from an indoor hotspot at a range of two to three city blocks away (if there are no obstructions). If the public hotspot is mounted outside (again, with no obstructions) you may be able to receive this hotspot signal from up to 1 mile away.

  • 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.
