    Question wi fi reception enhancer

    We have a trailer at an RV park. The park has Wi Fi and I can get it on my computer but the signal is weak. We also have another computer and an iTouch that could benefit from a stronger signal. The iTouch can't pick up the signal at all. I would like to amplify the signal to all of them.

    I have been reading about wi fi repeaters but it is not clear to me which one would work the best, if it would help at all. They appear to pick up the signal, amplify it and broadcast it around the area it is in. Is that correct and has anybody had any experience with this kind of situation?

    Thanks

    Rick

    Geez Ted you even beat me to referencing my own posts!

    Rick,

    I love this setup. I'm currently in a campground in Michigan and it is working great as usual.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
