Alfa packages the Alfa Desktop R36 WiFi Antenna with their External RV Booster Tube together as the WiFi Camp Pro 2 kit. Another option is the indoor only WiFi CampPro 2 Mini where an outdoor solution is not desired.
The WiFi receiving component is a USB powered WiFi radio that can connect directly to a single computer to get it online, or it can act as a WiFi-as-WAN receiver when paired with the USB Repeater module which then acts as a router, creating a local WiFi network so that multiple devices can get online and share the upstream connection.
The Alfa hardware has a solid reputation for picking up weak 2.4 Ghz WiFi at long range.
The feature set is very basic and focused on Wi-Fi extending only, but for some the price is right.
A "Version 2" of this model came out in June 2020. It is identical to the original version, but with an updated chipset that gives it higher throughput speeds.
