    Hi folks,

    I saw this on the Daily Steal today and would like to ask the folks here if this would work on the iPad. It is a wifi booster.


    New Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g High Gain USB Wireless Long-Rang WiFi Network Adapter with 5dBi Antenna - Strongest on the Market

    Low Price!







    Thanks for your help.

    I assume your problem is that you have a router that is some distance from where you are. Unfortunately one can not plug in a USB adapter wifi booster into the iPad.

    WiFi booster

    Could you use a USB extension cable (male/female) to plug a wifi booster into?

    In my experience, the wifi boosters do not work enough to justify the cost. If it possible move up to an ultra N router.

    Newest PC World magazine has an article about cell boosters. Might want to get a copy.

    Thanks I will look up the article. I have Verizon. I am trying to get the signal while traveling and passing through areas of very little coverage. I need some thing to help when the signal is very low or almost non-existant
