Moderators mountainborn Posted December 3, 2008 Moderators Share Posted December 3, 2008 Make your Oliver a WIFI Hiotspot ! This article describes a system somewhat similar to the one that Betty and I use. We put ours togather from components bought here and there. This is a complete package, but a bit more expensive. Here is a link to the article: http://blog.rv.net/2008/10/25/wifi-in-motion-make-your-rv-an-internet-hot-spot/?utm_source=RVN&utm_campaign=RVNeMag&utm_medium=eMail&promo=eMagNov08&logvalue=http%3a%2f%2fcontent.dynamicmessenger.com%2faffinitypid%2f%3fvf7NlZXCLAs4X6zDqnbziYzxg458HVzJv%26 Be sure to watch the video by clicking on the link at the top of the article. The video shows the complete installation with tips for hiding the equipment out of the way. Now this begs the question, "why pay for two different internet connections, one at home and one for out on the road" ? Why not park your Ollie near your home, he, he, I'll bet it already is, and supply the home with wifi signal from the ollie. Most of us leave our Ollies plugged into shore power while at home, so having the wifi system powered up all the time isn't an issue. Note that while towing down the road, the wifi signal area goes with you and can be used from the tow vehicle while in motion. It is pretty cool to be able to minimize the streets & trips map program to the system tray, while at interstate highway speeds, bring up the internet, and check gas buddy to see where the cheapest gas is in Amarillo Texas, fifty miles before getting there. Gas Buddy will even bring up it's own map to show you which exit, ect.. We put our system togather from parts bought from various sources, mostly eBay, for about $600 and it plugs up a bit differently. The 3G technology that we are enjoying across the nation is great, but is soon to be eclipsed by 4G which is currently being called WIMAX. Your equipment won't have to change to be able to use it, but your coverage areas will just be much larger. So if you use a system similar to this one, it will only get better and better when 4G phases in ! I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth 08' Oliver Legacy Elite HULL NUMBER 0003(sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
