This is a special kit shipping in one retail box featuring all of the above equipment designed to pick up a weak Wi-Fi signal and repeat it as your own personal hotspot. This is ideal for use on boats, RVs and campers, or larger properties. Here's what you get:
ALFA R36A USB Router
This is the successor to the previous model ALFA R36, and it is a special 802.11n router with a USB port allowing you to share the long range Wi-Fi connection of the ALFA Tube-U(N) outdoor USB wireless adapter. Now you can extend a weak Wi-Fi signal to all of your devices such as smartphones, printers, and tablets. R36A features internal hardware upgrades for better overall performance and reliability. It also features a completely redesigned on-page setup interface.
ALFA Tube-UNA outdoor USB Wi-Fi receiver
This component comes with a 8m (26 feet) USB cable that runs to the USB port on the R36A. This is the receiving radio that picks up the distant Wi-Fi signal. It has an N-male antenna connector. It features a 1-watt (1000mW) high power amplifier and is light-weight and easy to mount (it is 4.1 ounces and just over 6.5 inches tall). Simply use the two included mounting ties to fasten it to almost any type of infrastructure. It is fully weatherproof and can handle outdoor temperatures down to freezing.
AOA-2409TF outdoor fiberglass encased 9 dBi omni antenna
This antenna fits right into the Tube-UNA model Wi-Fi receiver and gives excellent reception range with a wider scope of vertical axis coverage as well, useful for pickup up Wi-Fi signals bouncing off obstacles. It is a light-weight outdoor omni-directional antenna priced much lower than comparable products from competing brands. It is 1.5 feet tall.
How it works
Use these three above components together to boost and share a Wi-Fi signal. Simply connect your computer (or other WiFi enabled device such as tablet or phone) to the R36A via WiFi connection. Connect the AOA-2409TF antenna to the Tube-U(N) receiver, then connect the Tube-UNA to the USB port on the R36A. Using Wi-Fi scanning software built-into the R36A you can scan for and connect to available wireless networks in your area. Once the R36A has connected to a network, you are prompted to name and password protect your own new local Wi-Fi network, offering any device within a few hundred feet the ability to use the same distant Wi-Fi signal.
There is no specific range because range can vary greatly based on environment and environmental factors like obstacles and interference. We recommend using this in an area where other devices can at least get a weak signal to the desired network, such as one bar. If the environment is such that your devices cannot even see the desired network form the place of intended use, the Camp Pro may not work well there. A rough estimate is 500-1000 feet. This is about 1.5 to 3 football fields. If you are in a very open area, range may go further.
Included in the box:
- ALFA R36A USB router
- 5 dBi RP-SMA antenna (for R36 signal transmit)
- Tube-UNA USB receiver + 8m (26 ft) USB cable
- AOA-2409TF 9 dBi omni antenna (for signal receive)
- 12v power supply for R36 (supports 100-240v, has North America plug, use in Europe requires converter)
- Tube-U(N) needs no power supply, draws power from the R36 via USB cable
- waterproof tape and wire ties for mounting Tube to pole
- R36 car/vehicle power supply adapter

Works as they said. I have wifi for the first time in 3 years at my camp. Thanks for an great product. Will repost at end of summer.
The unit does not pick u wifi network I moved with in 500 yard of marina and still it picked up week signal from restaurant but not enough to run utube I started on my boat 1000 yard many mast in way could not get single I will return tomorrow so daf
Initially the system did not perform as expected. This was solved after discussion with Rokland who pointed out that a USB buffer needed to be installed between the router and antenna. The buffer came with the system, but there were no indication of what it was or that it had to be installed. I understand that going forward the installation instructions will include an addendum to explain that this needs to be installed.
The setup is relatively simple and the performance is good although it can never be as good as a direction connection to the host. It is helpful however to have your own “network” inside your RV for things like printers, cameras, etc. and to have two Ethernet ports to connect to for devices that might not have WiFi.
As the title say, was fast delivery! This is the second one I’ve ordered. The last one lasted some 5 or six years of constant use in all kinds of weather extremes boosting my signal from no signal to being right there. I expect this one to perform equally as well. One more point. The new one was ALOT easier to get going. Couple mins and I was good to go. There is always room for improvement but not sure what that would be.
have to keep loading it up . doesnt pick up signal that good should send back .
