WE are in a park with very poor WIFI connections. It looks like I might get a good signal , but it does not connect to the internet.

Is there any booster that will increase the incomming signal. I can see towers around me.


I am running Windows 10


Thank You

Understanding the concepts makes it easier to connect.

Public WiFi, like at RV parks, is a shared resource. Your computer connects to the park’s WiFi access point that in turn connects to whatever Internet provider the park uses. Your signal to the access point is the signal indicator you see. It does not indicate your Internet experience. 

You can get WiFi boosters to improve the signal between your computer and the park’s access points. That will not necessarily improve your Internet experience, but it certainly can make a big difference if the park provides high bandwidth to the access points. 

It all comes down to basic radio; a better antenna and receiver will provide a better connection.

Our friends at mobileinternetinfo.com have detailed information on boosters, etc. and TechnoRV.com is a good source of equipment and information as well.
