Anyone tried the JefaTech Long Range WiFi Repeater?


Recommended Posts

I am considering the JefaTech Long Range WiFi Repeater in my coach. My plan is to purchase the system and try it on our next road trip without mounting the antenna externally...that way if it doesn't work I won't have a hole in my roof to repair. Anyone tried this unit using the antenna inside the coach?

Why the need to put a hole in the roof? I just lately installed a WiFiRanger Sky2 antenna. I mounted it on top of a Max cover over a vent and ran the cable down through the refrigerator vent.

I did drill a hole from the refrigerator back side into the MH for the cable.

I have it with 4' antenna which I mount yo my rear ladder. I run the wire to my window and enter coach there. The repeater works well as a router for several devices to work at once. You can mount other ways and run cable inside permanent which I may do but not yet.

I don't have a refer vent on top. The only way to get onto the roof is to drill....

That may be an option....thanks.

 

I just ordered one this morning...hopefully will get here by Thursday since we're heading up to our trailer on Friday.....

 

Would really be interested in your experience and thoughts.... :D

I used the Alfa system from TechnoRv and love it. I have Xfinity cable at home and they have now opened up hundreds of thousands of accessible wifi spots throughout the country. I've been traveling up and down the east coast and getting wifi everywhere. Either xfinity or McDonalds, Starbucks, libraries etc

Check out the article I wrote about it here. Www.rvbprecision.com

Tried it out this weekend and it worked great.....before I could only get one or two bars which was just enough for Roku but Ipad and the laptop couldn't connect...with Jefa running...all my devices were at max wifi signal...for the first time since we've been up there..HQ's could use her ipad anywhere around the trailer.
