Best wifi antenna for mac laptop?
 
My wife and I both have mac laptops and will be full timing soon. We would like to know what would be the best antenna for us to buy to pick up wifi in rv campgrounds. I have read a few posts here but wondered if there is anything new or outstanding that you might suggest...

Linksys Wireless G Access Point
 
I use a Linksys Wireless G Access Point for my laptop on my KW (Big

Truck) when I'm out working, which seems to be all the time, just love the

fuel prices :(. Anyway it gives me great range and I it never failed me. It

just takes a few minutes to setup when I stop (3 Minutes) and I'm off and

running. There are other ways this is just one of them. It does require a

110 power supply, so it is a seperate system. Food for thought.

We use a Mac laptop and have found that an external antenna with a USB connection coming inside the trailer works very well. A description is here: https://www.airforums.com/forums/f452...#post423753%29.

We use an Omni 12 high gain antenna and ethernet router from Radiolabs. RadioLabs - Radio, Wireless and Beyond -
We can connect both of our laptops. Works well for us. Give them a call. Very good customer service.

We have been using a WaveRV II for the past year and are very satisfied with its performance. It has a separate wifi card with its own external antenna. It increases wifi reception by about ten times. I'm not sure if it is Mac compatible. Their website is RadioLabs - Radio, Wireless and Beyond -.

The link I provided above shows our WaveRV (Radiolabs) antenna and it is compatible with our Mac. Installation of the Mac version of the software was a little clunky, but it worked. The beauty of this antenna system is that no additional power is needed if the USB cable from the antenna is plugged directly into your Mac or Windows laptop. Our experience is the same as Brian's, the antenna really increases WiFi reception.
