I just bought a mini, haven’t upgraded the firmware or the license for Wifi as Wan. brand new to mobile networking, but have a few parts i’ve assembled for my camper.
i understand the BR1 can only transmit/recieve on one antenna for wifi, so if im trying to access the local wifi at a campsite, I’ll need to get the license and a wifi antenna. does it need to be a Mimo antenna?
i’ve read that the internal BR1 antenna also cannot broadcast into the camper if it’s attempting to connect to the signal at the campsite AP. so i have an older cradlepoint 1000 router to use as the router for my gear in the trailer which I’ll hook into the LAN connection on the BR1.
am i doing this right? any other setup ideas?
im 300 feet away from the campsite router and can barely get a signal on my laptop, so I’m attempting to set that up with a verizon data package as a backup
