JefaTech has posted on their website that they are developing a replacement product. We have been watching regularly since 2018 for that product to be announced.
The JEFA Tech Repeater XR system consists of a weather proof, long range, 802.11n WiFi receiver (PICO) which receives the outdoor WiFi signal. The AirGateway is an indoor 802.11n WiFi access point that creates a private WiFi hotspot using the WiFi signal received by the PICO. This provides WiFi internet access to all of the devices in your RV or Boat.
