hi gang can I boost the signal from wifi on a caravan site when on my holidays the site do have free access to the network, but where my caravan is the signal is not that good. the network owner said he cannot boost it any more so is there anything that I can buy to help the signal strength.

You can use a wireless repeater/access point or an old router as a repeater/access point. The following video explains the concept click here

You could adapt an old satellite dish into a WiFi antenna click here

The problem is that if there is no signal there in the first place you have nothing to boost. Your only alternative is to find a WiFi directional aerial and a router that allows an external aerial to be connected. Considering the price of that I would look at using a mobile dongle instead (if the mobile phone signal is good enough in your location???)
