WIFI Booster Speed Degradation

Recommended Posts

We have WiFi Camp Pro 2 mounted on our batwing and it seems to me that when we connect to a wifi source, say in a park it reduces the speed dramatically.   Sometimes by as much as 75% as opposed to connecting directly to the park.

 

I think everything is set up correctly, is this normal?  Is it this way with all boosters?

The description of the WIFI Camp Pro 2 that I read describes it as a booster/repeater. If your use of it introduces another wifi hop (i.e. repeating the signal) in your chain, then some reduction in speed is typical although 75% seems high. The device I saw on Amazon looked like it had an external radio and an internal hotspot. If the hotspot is a router with an ethernet port, try connecting your computer to that and see if you get better speeds.

Some wifi devices like the Ubiquiti Nano Station that I use have more sensitive receivers and more powerful transmitters than most computers or handheld devices. The Nano Station can be used as a wifi adapter connected directly to a computer or to a router by ethernet cable. It can greatly improve connectivity to weak wifi signals and usually provides better speed than the device in the computer. If connections to a router are made by wifi, there is usually some reduction in speed that is inherent in the repeating process.

Note that a strong or stronger wifi signal may not mean faster speeds. The capability of the wifi system and the demands of users will also affect the speed available.
