iBoost WiFi booster will amplify any available WiFi signals directly into your van.
We have tried and tested this. IT WORKS! On any available phone or WiFi device we found 2-3 signals locally at our workshop. This was across Apple products, Android phones and tablets, and laptops. When using the iBoost and without looking around and directing the signal we manged to find over 25 signals.
he iBoost D8 Directional System serves to both boost the externally available WiFi signal and repeat that signal at full strength inside your van, creating your own secure network with your own unique security code. This means that the system is compatible with any device which is WiFi enabled – connect your laptop, iPad, tablet, smartphone and even kindle – all at the same time! No drivers to install on your devices and no wires between you and the system.
The antenna can be positioned outside or inside using the suction bracket supplied, drilling holes is not necessary. As the system is temporary, simply bring the cable in through a window or rooflight and plug it into the back of your router. The iBoost antenna is weatherproof so you can leave it outside when in one static location, just make sure you bring it back inside when traveling. The Personal Hotspot is a small footprint wireless router with a sleek appearance and a built in WiFi antenna for your local network, capable of upto 150Mbps via the latest Wireless N standard (B/G also supported). One extra network connection is available on the back of the router should you wish to connect any wired devices to the system as well.
Simple Suction Mounted Antenna
The web interface has been fully customised by MotorhomeWiFi to allow you to easily setup the system using any device with a web browser. Simply turn the system on and connect to the secure hotspot named ‘iBoost’ using the passcode printed on the side of the router. Once connected you can load the iBoost web interface which will ask you to select an available network. The iBoost antenna has a 90 degree field of view so fine tuning is a breeze, only minor adjustment of the antenna may be required. Once setup the system will remember the settings allowing you to connect additional devices with no setting up required.
The range of the external antenna is difficult to qualify, since you are connecting to a network over which you have no control.The antenna is preconfigured to work at the maximum permissible limit for the UK and Europe. The range of the internal hotspot (your local WiFi signal) is upto 50m – giving you the ability to connect outside or even give your friends the key so they can access your hotspot in the van next door! Power the system off and on again and provided you haven’t moved location, it will reconnect to the last known network.
Now with a Carry / Storage Case
Due to customers requesting a suitable method of storing and transporting their iBoost system, we have commissioned a new carry case. The cases are made from high impact ABS with a precision cut CNC foam insert, designed to store the iBoost Antenna, Micro Router, Bracket (in two parts), Network Cable, 12v Power Supply and even the optional Mains Adapter in the minimum possible space.
The cases are 27cm x 22cm x 9cm (10.6″ x 8.7″ x 3.5″ approx) – slightly smaller than the box your iBoost will be delivered in.
