In this day and age, it is normal for more and more people to be constantly online with all their devices. Of course, this also applies to travelers with small luggage who are traveling in hotels, hostels and off the beaten path, such as backpackers. Often the wireless reception in the room in the hotel/hostel is bad and it comes to disconnections. Reasons for this can be the distance to the access point, and also the bad WiFi adapter or the bad WiFi antenna in your own device. Here is the ideal solution to use a wireless extender. Or you are in a place without WiFi, as it may be the case with camping accommodations, and you want to use the mobile Internet connection via a SIM card. In this case, an LTE extender is useful. With this, on the one hand, the reception is improved, particularly in rural areas with a bad UMTS/LTE network and you can use the connection of one SIM card with multiple devices.
Indoor WiFi Extender
The basis of both the WiFi extender and the LTE extender is in this set is the ALFA Network R36A router. The Indoor WiFi USB Adapter AWUS036NH is connected either directly or via a short USB cable to the R36A. The AWUS036NH, with its excellent transmitting and receiving characteristics, receives the signal from the remote hotspot and connects to it. It passes on this internet connection to the R36A. The R36A now provides the established Internet connection via its own Hotspot for all your devices. The AWUS036NH can be easily positioned thanks to the included u-mount.
Indoor LTE Extender
The ALFA Network Onyx 4G UMTS/LTE Surfstick receives the remote signal of the mobile Internet as LTE extender and transmits it to the R36A. Again, the R36A provides this internet connection via its own WiiFi for all your devices. Thanks to the Onyx 4G, not only the reception of the LTE/UMTS signal is improved, but you can also provide the connection of one SIM card with a data plan for multiple devices. You can either connect the Onyx 4G Surf dongle directly to the R36A or connect it with a USB cable. The advantage of connecting via USB cable is that you can ideally align the Onyx 4G with a dongle clip holder for the best possible reception.
Like all ALFA Network Camp Pro 2 sets, this set convinces with its easy handling. The R36A is configured via a web interface, which thanks to its responsive web design can also be operated via laptop, tablet or smartphone. The display of the web interface adapts automatically to the respective display size. The R36A is specifically designed for use as a WiFi and LTE extender and guides you through the configuration with a simple Easy Setup wizard. Of course we deliver the set with our German-speaking, illustrated instructions. In this guide, we also explain the simplest way to switch from WiFi Extender to LTE Extender. Currently, simultaneous operation as a WiFi Extender and LTE Extender is not possible. This is due to both the structure of the web interface and the fact that the R36A has only one USB port. Thus, only a change of operation is possible.

The transmission power of the hardware is to be set in accordance with the legal regulations in your country. For Germany and the EU for 2.4 GHz wireless devices with antenna a maximum EIRP of 100mW or 20dBm is the limit. Please use the device in Germany only with the countries Zone ETSI or the regional setting for Germany to ensure compliance with the limits. The operation of a signal amplifier (for example antenna) is possible and also allowed, however, in combination with this the max. transmission power must not be exceeded.
