Product Overview: WiFi Camp Pro / Camp Pro 2 Kit by Alfa (Mobile Routers | Long Range WiFi)

alfa-wifi-camp-pro-kit-extending-router-review

A popular budget option with some RVers has been combining the Alfa Desktop R36 WiFi Antenna ($59.95) with their External RV Booster Tube ($99.95). Now,  Alfa packages these components together as the WiFi Camp Pro. In April 2018, they updated the kit to the Camp Pro 2.

The updated Camp Pro 2 remains highly similar to the original. 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 biggest change in the updated Camp Pro 2 is in the repeater component and can be viewed as “internal hardware enhancements”. These enhancements are touted to provide better through-put speeds for multiple users. In addition, updates have been made to the user interface, simplifying set-up and control.

The Alfa hardware has a solid reputation for picking up weak WiFi well at long range - but there is no option for interfacing directly with any cellular modems.

The feature set is very basic, but for some the price is right.
