Get online easier, securely with WiFiRanger
With all the devices that we now carry in our RVs that need an Internet connection, its no wonder one of the most discussed topics in forums and blogs is how people stay connected to the Internet. Until recently, this involved a variety of solutions including cellular devices, WiFi, and even satellite, but little existed to simplify the process of keeping things simple and secure, and to utilize the best connection available at any one time.
The WiFiRanger line of routers are specifically designed for this purpose. These routers drastically reduce the time and effort required to stay connected while moving from location to location.
The device allows the owner of a coach or RV to simply connect all their laptops, printers, TVs, game machines and iDevices to the WiFiRanger's internal secure wireless or wired network. Much like you would do at home, your devices are always connected to each other on that network, and never need to be changed. Any RVer with a late model TV that supports WiFi for streaming music and video knows that trying to get that TV on an RV park's WiFi is nearly impossible. With a WiFIRanger, once all your coach devices are connected to its network, the owner uses a simple browser to then tell the WiFiRanger how to connect to the public WiFi or 3G/4G cellular devices. This adds a layer of security to your use of public WiFi, and since WiFiRangers have excellent WiFi reception, they can often make weak and unusable park WiFi very usable and improve speeds.
"I used to avoid RV park Wifi because it's not secure," said RVtravel.com editor Chuck Woodbury. "Ever since I got my WiFiRanger I have used it instead of my Verizon Aircard, which generally is not as fast."
The WiFiRanger auto connects at more than 10,000 locations nationwide, so often the owner will have no interaction with it. It simply works, and owners are often connected by the time they are parked. Leading manufacturers like Forest River are now including it as an option or even standard equipment. It comes in a variety of models, from simple internal units to high power outdoor versions capable of pulling in WiFi from a few miles away. More information available at the WiFi Ranger website.

Space heater uses only 200 watts!
It's hard to believe that an electric space heater could use a mere 200 watts — the same as a couple of light bulbs, a fraction of others. But this one does, and it really works! It's meant to heat a nearby person, not a room. Put it on your desk or at your feet. It's perfect for the RVer who's "always cold." For about $17, this is a winner. Learn more or order at Amazon.com.
