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

The Camp Pro 2 V2 was set up and working in minutes on our ketch. The marina Wifi signal is very weak and impossible to use inside the sailboat. Camp Pro occasionally needs to be powered down and up to reset the Wifi connection to the marina. I needed to put the Camp Pro antenna 10' up the mast to get a good signal. I would highly recommend this product.
Very knowledgeable and very patient. Looking forward to testing it out on the road in a couple of weeks.
I bought the Camp 2 repeater on a tip from a boating friend that uses one when cruising. We are both in a marina now and pull the signal from the marina office. I am 200+ yards from the source and he is another 100 yards farther. We both get wifi strong enough to stream movies. So far everything is working fine. Well packaged and easy to install and set-up.
super fast shipping. can't wait to try out my new WiFi repeater!
Absolutely the best investment for our WiFi; hands down a great product!!!
