WiFi Tips and Tricks for Your Next RV Trip

WiFi makes it easy to stay connected while RVing

Staying connected while traveling is important to most people, so having available WiFi is a necessity. Whether you work from your RV, live in your RV full-time or are taking occasional trips, being able to connect quickly helps things run smoother.

Although many parks offer this free service as an amenity, but, because of the number of guests trying to access it at any given time, it may be difficult to tap into it. The reasons may include obstacles such as trees or buildings in the way as well as limited or low-powered signals. Even when there are multiple transmitters, connecting can be fleeting.

No-one wants to use up their data while on the road, so let’s take a look at some remedies.

Check out these WiFi tips.

  1. Create your own WiFi hotspot (follow these instructions from techbuzz)
  2. Use an extender antenna (Tom’s Guide provides his best picks for extender antennas)
  3. Try a booster (Actiontek has a good synopsis of when to use this option)

Breaking down the options.

A hotspot is a wireless access point, typically in a public location.

You can access a hotspot from a smart phone or laptop. Many cafes, bookstores and other businesses offer hotspots so their customers can connect to the internet. It’s important to take security measures when using a hotspot, because they are public. By installing a VPN on your mobile device, your data will be encrypted, so even if you’re hacked, the information is impossible to read.

An extender antenna is is a type of wireless repeater.

This device may be used when the network signal isn’t getting to all the areas you need it to. Sometimes techies call these areas deadzones.

A booster extends a signal by boosting or amplifying it.

When you visit Stonebridge RV Park in Sweeny, Texas, you’ll find FREE WiFi to be one of the many amenities offered.

The frustration of a good, available signal is frustrating at best. By trying one of the options list ed here, we’re confident you will find a solution that works best for your situation.
