    50 Mile range with WiFi!?!?!?!?! Is that even possible? Any boosters I have seen claim to boost the WiFi by 600% or so. So 500 feet x 6 = 3000 feet = aprox 1/2 mile.

    OMG, do not buy a booster, they are known to cause radiaton and lead to cancer. I wanted one so bad but I honestly dont want to shorten my already short life doing it. They say to keep it a good distance away from passengers, but in my opinion a car is just too small of a space no matter were you put it. Mind you I am not using Wi-Fi, but I bought a huge antenna for my truck and it gives me 100% signal. I had issues going into under ground garages and drive thrus so I took the antenna off and left the base and still get 85%. Driving at 8o mph is an issue for me also. Thankfully things like Sling player allow you to set a buffer time.

    I am totally confused now you are NOT using WiFi? What are you using then? I am asking all the questions, as I would like to find a solution to get some decent range. I realize the 50 mile range had to be a typo, what are you actually getting now for range?

    I am not sure what he is talking about either. I am talking about the AirCard solution, havent seen a Wi-Fi solution. It does supposedly have a 50 mile range.

    Dude! I see the confusion now! You bought that antenna for your Cell phone? At first glance reading the thread I thought it was for WiFi, as the thread was about WiFi antenna's! LOL

    That would make more sense, as a cellphone tower range to a cellphone averages around 25 miles, so with a booster, I don't see why that could not double the range.
