This product works as advertised... It doesn't boost the signal though, simply gives me the same strength inside my RV as I get out side my RV. I connected it using the ethernet cable and it maintains a consistently stable and strong signal on par with the external signal I was receiving from the RV park. Setting this unit up was easy enough, the instructions were very straight forward. Once I installed the roof and internal units and waited a couple of minutes, for the units to sync up I guess, connecting my phone to the new Wi-Fi signal was just like connecting it to my home Wi-Fi.
Although, I guess, the product description does elude to the fact that this unit goes best with the Magnadyne TV/AM FM radio antenna, it took me a little while to figure this out. Once I got the antenna though it complimented and was easy to add onto this booster unit’s dome. The addition of the dish style antenna definitely makes this unit look more appealing.
MobileVision Magnadyne MV100 12 Volt RV WiFi extender high gain antenna booster router black complete kit This product works as promoted... Gave me the reliable WiFi signal strength I was hoping for. I removed the old TV antenna and installed in the same location, so no added hardware was needed. Set up was easy, the instructions understandable. Once I installed the unit I was a little unsure of the time frame for connectivity, so made a quick call to the Tech support group. They walked me through a few parts and after waiting a couple of minutes for everything to sync up, it was just as easy as connecting WiFi at home.
Part of my rating was due to the great customer service and technical support received by the company. Overall very responsive to my questions.
This works only to the point of bringing the signal we have outside to the inside. It does not amplify the outside signal. Example: If I have 4 or 5 bars outside I can watch netflix. Less than that, no go. The MV100 seems to have a difficult time holding a steady signal. It swings from 52 to 6 Mbits/ sec. Of course the inside connection is always 5 bars .
The black plastic cap is held on by three tongs one of which broke upon installation. Finally, looks aren't that important to me but this thing is ugly.
UPDATE: I increased the star rating from two to three stars as the company is very responsive with customer service. They sent me a replacement cap based unbidden.
