  • OMG Get a wifi amplifier

    I just got my 1 Watt amp installed, gotta tell you, the thing rules. 5 distant aps popped up, the one I've been using got a 25+ dB signal improvement on my same antenna... WOW thats all I can say. Worth every penny. This isn't a for sale post, just a reccomendation. I'm using a hyperlink 1 watt amp.

    That said, I've got one for sale in the for sale section.

      I have one left for sale, or they are available at www.hyperlinktech.com or www.fab-corp.com. Get the most powerful one you can buy, it's worth it for the range you get.

                  There isn't much available for less than $200. And I've used my phone for a long time as a connection, but for the connection I get now with the 1 watt amp, it's pointless. I can pretty much get signal anywhere! I'm still waiting for EVDO to be available in my area, then I'll have the mobile broadband and be able to drive with a connection, but I'm still gonna keep the wifi, Can't beat 3 mb cable.

                  With how much everything else I'm putting in the truck cost, this is one of the best purchases i've made. Range is still unknown, I'm trying to figure out my antenna solution for mobile use.

                    I think $200 is cheap. Its easy to say yeah that alot of money. But no one realizes that is takes alot to make 1 watt @2.4ghz. Hell you could get 50-100 watts on a vhf/uhf radio for $200. Its not easy making 1 watt on 2.4ghz cheap.

                    Using your phone to connected to the internet costs money. Money you will never get back. My cellphone bill is $40 a month $480/year? So ($200 a one time fee) sounds pretty dam good to me!

                      Which one did you get? Because the ones I looked at hyperlink dont say they come with pre-amps. There just straight out amps.

                            But your still ****ing money away. I think having a 1 watt amp as a back up would be a nobrainer.

                              I dunno man. I can get connectivity just about anywhere, and if not, I've got the trusty phone handy. My phone gets anywhere from 120k to 200k connection. Almost as good as the cheap DSL. And it doesn't cost me extra, just goes against the 2500 daytime minutes I got. I have unlimited Night/Weekends starting at 7 pm. I think that's the way to go. And my phone is Bluetooth, so I don't even have to get it out of my pocket to connect.

                              EDIT: And to make it better, I'm in the freakin' middle of nowhere New Mexico man! I really can't believe how many open wireless networks are around here...
