Systems That Will Extend & Boost Your WiFi Range

CC Vector Extended Long Range WiFi Receiver System

If you have a remote garage, greenhouse or guesthouse you may be faced with the cost of a new Internet service. The CC Vector Extended Long Range WiFi System can connect to your home host router up to ½ mile away and save you the cost and trouble of setting up a new router or digging a trench. Typically you would mount the parabolic antenna on an outbuilding wall pointed towards your home router.
