    I travel in an rv and have a laptop. Many campgrounds are getting wi-fi now. However, if you are too far from the antenna located at the office, you get a weak signal. Is there a router that can pick up their signal and send it to my laptop so I could get internet access? Something with an external antenna would probably work better than my internal antenna. Thanks.

    A wireless card (after market) with an external antenna would be your best solution. A router has no place in this equation.

    Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

    Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

    Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a couple of examples.

    Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna
