    Boosting a wifi signal to the ipad

    The owners of the site where I have a mobile home have recently installed wifi. There is a transmitter on top of the main building that sends out a wifi signal. Unfortunately my unit is situated in a place where I struggle to pick up the signal without standing on one leg on top of the wardrobe!
    Does anyone know of any sort of signal booster that I could mount on a mast that would transmit a stronger signal to my iPad indoors?

    Many thanks

    Hezza

    Not sure if it's necessary to mount anything on a mast, at least not before considering these babies:
    Look up the offerings here "wi-fi-booster-review.toptenreviews.com/" (meanwhile be careful on top of that wardrobe&#128552

    You should just be able to purchase any old wireless repeater / range extender, and assuming you can place it somewhere that it gets the signal, you can then repeat it - I sit one on my windowsill in the Kitchen to repeat my wifi from inside the house into the garden.

    I use the "Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender", but many others are available
