product: Kuma Wifi Booster Kit:
Boost Caravan, Motorhome and Boat wifi with ease. The Kuma WiFi package
is a complete solution to pick up and boost an external WiFi signal and
repeat it at full strength. This allows you to create your own locally
secure wireless network in your leisure vehicle and share the boosted
connection with all your devices. Everything you need to boost and share
a motorhome WiFi connection is included. Gets good reviews online.
The system is compatible with any device which is WiFi enabled, even if
it does not have a USB port. You can connect your laptop, iPad, tablet,
smartphone or Kindle all at the same time! There are no disks or drivers
to install on your devices and no wires between you and the system. The
package consists of two main components – The Kuma High-Powered Long
Range Directional WiFi Antenna which will pick up any available WiFi
network as far away as 1.5km and the Kuma Wireless Repeater which will
enable you to rebroadcast this boosted signal. Also included is a 5m USB
cable to connect the antenna with the receiver, mounting kit, as well as
12v DC and 230v AC power supplies.
Directional aerials like this take a few seconds
longer to set up than omnis but outperform omni-directional units every time!
This is of course an amplified unit so if there's no signal available or it
is being 'perimeter blocked' by the provider it can't 'magic one up' out
of nowhere - but where there is a faint and maybe unusable open signal it can pull
it in at usable strength - amazing. Extremely handy for using free wifi
hotspots and even campsite wifi when it's a bit further away from
comfortable parking than the signal expects!

Kit & Dongle.
An optional extra feature set is provided with our own 4G pocket WiFi / MiFi allowing access and sharing of a 3G/4G mobile data connection when wifi
isn't available. This does need a data sim of course - Monthly or
PAYG, or One-off bulk Data type. Also coming soon a less sophisticated
but compatible 3G 'dongle'.
Access / Mobile Broadband / MiFi on the move:
Introducing the brand new 4G Mobile Pocket WiFi Kit with external
antenna. Simply insert any sim card and share the internet connection
with up to 5 devices: smartphones, tablets, iPads or computers.The
external antenna allows you to take the phone company's data signal from
outside and use the internet inside your caravan, boat, motorhome or
truck. Based around a quality high performance dongle by Huawei.
Your own private and secure internet access (almost) wherever you are.
With our need for customer data privacy we've been using this system for
years. The SIM can be PAYG or one-off bulk data or monthly subscription
and with schemes like 3's Feel at home is now very affordable throughout
Europe. It used to be thought something of a luxury but many people
now see it as an essential element in their lives.
And not just Internet Access but at Mobile Broadband performance levels too!
Designed perfectly with you in mind, set up in less than 2 minutes with
no technical knowledge required, letting our kit do all the work.
unlocked so simply
use any 4G data sim with our product and receive the internet anywhere
in the world. Our 4G Router kit is specifically designed to put 4G WiFi
internet in your caravan, motorhome, boat or horsebox and comes with an
adaptor to perfectly fit and connect all universal sim cards into the
device. No 4G signal in your area? No problem. our kit is
backwards compatible with 3G or even down to 2G speeds. This won't allow
you to stream movies, but at least a basic internet connection will keep
you in touch with the outside world.
includes a powerful 28dBi Antenna with 3-meter cable which can work up
to with speeds 150Mbps to help improve your signal. The long lasting
1500mAh battery can be charged via a supplied 2.0 USB cable, so no
direct power source is required to use the kit. Connect up to 5 devices
at the same time wirelessly with your Smartphone, Tablet or Computer to
this lightweight pocket router - MiFi. Weighing 280g it's perfect when
on the go or even for use on holiday in a Caravan, Motorhome or Boat
when standard WiFi is not available or not sufficiently private.
Public WiFi is
increasingly available albeit often unsecured and somewhat unreliable. MiFi devices
like ours using 3G / 4G Cellphone data offer a private secured
connection at modest cost. The Huawei MiFi in Black pictured above right
(hover mouse over pics
for info) includes an informative screen and
internal battery that is charged via USB or it can be continuously powered via USB.
It connects automatically. This is our our own preferred connection
route using 3's Feel at Home scheme when in
Europe. Twin antenna sockets too*.
* Like all receivers they can suffer reduced performance inside a metal
boxed vehicle but using an water resistant external antenna like this or simply placing the MiFi
unit outside the box can improve reception and performance greatly, I
used to put my dongle out via a skylight before I linked it to an
installed roof antenna.
Info & Tips Section: (if not of interest - click
here to go straight to product info) There are choices as ever.
· Satellite broadband is everyone's dream
because it offers worldwide high bandwidth internet access pretty much
wherever you are, the down side is the high capital cost and high
running costs. At the other end of the cost scale is free Public
WiFi. It's rarely quite free of course you may
have to pay to park or buy goods to get access or travel out of your way
to find it. An aerial helps greatly with reception say on a campsite
pitch a little way from the transmitter. The downsides are a lack of
privacy & security in these open connections - never use it for banking!
In the middle ground there is the cellphone/mobile
data solution. Outlay is modest for the devices and the running cost
is now modest even roaming in Europe on the Monthly or PAYG or one-off
bulk data options available. There's increasingly good performance over
wide areas, all now supplemented by optional external aerial/s. European
roaming is much, much, cheaper than it was, now with no on-cost at all
in many circumstances. The private and secured connection
offered is increasingly important to many of us not least because
professional villains and nerdy teenagers all seem keen to hack into
anything they can see! In MiFi form multiple devices are supported
and secured. There are none of the 'tethering' issues that plague some phone
contracts and later phones / apps can use the wireless data for whatsapp,
facetime, facebook, mapping, satnav, etc. - even switching over
seamlessly for calls on some phones. Ideal for tablets and laptops and mixes well with
you can use it to access phone-data-cost-saving apps like SmartTalk & Skype even with data roaming turned off while abroad on your
holidays - so even works with restricted phones/contracts like budget
Do we communicate on the move ourselves? Yes we certainly do and
have been doing so in various motorhomes at quite a serious level for
most of this millennium.
in the sense that we use both personal and business email and web
browsing including site page modification on a near daily basis both
here in GB and also away in the motorhome in Europe. Public Wifi was,
and is, initially very appealing for internet access because it's
notionally free but we found too many drawbacks in practice. Apart from
the security & privacy issues it proved far from
free if you need to detour and to buy something to get web access that
may anyway be indifferent and insecure. (if not of
interest - click here to go straight to product info)
days our various Smart-devices also want to connect to the
internet for an amazing range of services including everything from
Whatsapp and Skype to Facebook & TV, from SatNav updates to Diesel, LPG,
and Fiat Professional service locations, not to mention finding tourist
info, aires, campsites, restaurants, NT & RSPB properties, news, weather
forecasts, and more; it's all just part of everyday life now. Apps like
Skype Whatsapp and SmartTalk can save significant amounts of money while
we're abroad too. With some irritating restrictions on tethering smartphones we
prefer to use a dedicated secure mifi data device. Most of my family are
shocked if there's no shared internet in the camper these days, no
matter where we are!
away we need to be in touch with our business almost daily and
often in a fairly intensive way - we receive hundreds of emails every
day and also receive orders every day of the year except Christmas Day
(so far!). Our colleagues are always at base of course, doing the
'donkey work', but we do still need regular, reliable, secure, internet access
with little in the way of data restriction - at least if & when we
decide we need more data for a specific task. When working like this I
prefer to use the comfortable office in our motorhome with everything to
hand and not to be in or parked next to a McDonalds for hours on end! Add to this the security and privacy concerns around dealing with
customer data over an open public network and you can maybe see why we
prefer to use our own private multi-device access via the cellphone
network and a secured connection.
years ago when we first trialled it on a 'dongle' this technology was
painfully slow and also painfully expensive in Europe but the advent of
3G Data and now 4G Data plus the convenience of multi-user mifi plus
harmonised roaming rates in Europe have changed all that. Our first 3G
was via a Data-only dongle with Vodaphone on a £10/day-used deal for,
what was then, quite a lot of data. Then MiFis arrived and the deal
reduced in price once the move towards unifying and reducing roaming
rates got underway but £7-£8/day-used was still normal.
our new friends 3 came along with their 'Feel at Home' deal -
where you could use your UK Mifi Data allowance in France with no extra
charge so just as if you were still back in the UK. Not only that but
they promised to extend this to other countries too - almost too good to
be true! They were true to their promise too, Feel-at-Home is now
available in nineteen countries including eleven in Europe and still
growing. Does it
work? Yes, a resounding yes in fact. Our first trip on this scheme took
us on a long and winding rural route almost to the Mediterranean and
only once were we unable to get a 3G signal albeit there were just a few
locations where low signal strength and slower data made life a little
difficult - much on a par with being back in the UK in fact.
was mostly excellent, better than the UK, especially with the MiFi device lodged in the roof
vent. Now upgraded to 4G and with a roof antenna we find speeds are even better, genuinely
'mobile broadband' at last - and 4G is now pretty widely available; where
not 3G is the fall back - and may be the default on 'roaming'.
We now use a monthly 5Gig SIM-only contract to cover most of our needs
but also have a PAYG SIM that we swap to if running out of allowance and
need more data temporarily (not often since upgrading to 5Gig/month),
all this seems to work just fine. Some use a single payment SIm for bulk
data, say 20 or 30Gb, do check how long before it expires though, some
suppliers are very good on this point but some products / suppliers
aren't. (if not of interest - click

Sticking with public WiFi? - then a good WiFi Antenna is of course just the thing and
this is a great solution for those wanting less critical internet access
on campsites and other places offering pubic wifi so we also offer
impressive temporary & installable wifi antennae. These wifi aerials
will pick up signals at some considerable distance subject to obstacles
and to some extent weather systems; there are reports from boats of a
surprising range of 'many miles' to & from shore based wifi. Very
often a decent signal and the best parking are anything but close to
each other - even on campsites - so our WiFi extender kit neatly solves
that issue for you and you won't have to give up your treasured spot by
the view or loo or away from the road just to be able to use the WiFi. NB:
The antenna for wifi and 3/4G are different.
Hopefully all this helps understanding and importantly that we can offer
customers appropriate help and good advice to those of you about to take
the plunge or upgrade - and even some ongoing support too.

For use with the Kuma
WiFi Hotspot Package enabling you to access and share a 3G
internet connection. It has been tested extensively and the results were
very favourable regarding gain and performance. This dongle is supported
by Kuma, and so is recommended for use with the WiFi Hotspot Package. A
benefit of the Kuma Dongle is that it comes complete with a magnetic
antenna to boost the 3G signal, so you can receive the same signal
inside as is outside your metal vehicle/vessel.
