I have yet to have a problem getting onto the Internet using my Verizon MiFi until we went to the Blackhawk campground in Rockford. They are in a little valley that seems to be a cellular black hole and their WiFi is mounted low on their building so if you’re next to a large rig, forget getting a signal. First time in 7 years I couldn’t log on and it will be the last.
I spoke to the owner and he mentioned moving the antenna so I gave him some ideas of what could work but will he do them, I can’t assume he will so I’ll make sure I can get on no matter what. He has it line of site pointing straight at the line of lots which normally would be fine however, there is a big tree also in this line as well as a park model in the first lot and a big Class A in the 2nd making it near impossible to get signal without either standing in the road or on top of the RV.
I found a product from C. Crane called the “Super USB WiFi Antenna 3” and also a 30ft extension cable which will plug directly into my MacBook Pro giving me full signal from most any point in their park or any park where a signal is difficult to attain. I should have it soon and will do plenty of testing, I’ll post about it after I’m done testing it, but if reviews are any indication, this thing will rock.
