[QUOTE=IGonz;479098... There is a wifi antenna you can buy that has a range of one mile. I have have one of these and when I connected it at home here in S. Tulsa there were 47 unsecured residential wifi and 12 free business wifi in range.
These antennas are great when you have a 7th floor condo on the coast. I can connect to my wifi while on the beach or while sailing. I attach it to a high point on the sailboat.
I have my wifi extended antenna on the balcony of the condo. Range is more than two miles.[/QUOTE]
Where can one get one like that? I'm thinking of using my iPad as a hotspot and extend the range to another room or to the patio where I could use my laptop.
I guess it wouldn't be useful in bringing in a better signal to my cell or to the Virgin Mobile BB stick.
The next tower is miles away and not line of sight either. I'm surprised I even get one bar.
I tried the iPhone 4S with ATT and had No Service or a spotty one bar. Returned it for a refund.
Verizon shows complete coverage even here but I'll find out tomorrow for sure.
