    Well here we are in lovely Wales but can't get my motorhomefun wifi to work. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE ?
    I had it set up at home ,with password , now first time out I've forgot how to set it up, when I connect up it as my name with a good signal but can't remember how to get onto wifi site to enter my password , I hope this makes sense ?
    Regards and thanks in advance

    What sort of system have you got? Is it the Motorhome WiFi iBoost?

    I've got a home made booster and it probably uses different addresses and steps to yours but perhaps it might serve as a reminder if I describe what I do.

    I open up a browser and enter 192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This then connects to the booster where I have to enter my user name and password. I then go to the wireless tab and get it to scan for networks. I then choose the one I want and connect to it. You then need to connect to the actual wifi network you have logged on to which can vary depending on what you have and what you are using. But on my Android tablet there will be a thing to "sign in to wifi network" which I click on and follow the direction to enter any user name and password given by the campsite. Of course some net works are open and you don't need to do that.

    In summary, it is a two step process. Log onto the booster and select the network. Then log into the network you are connected to.

    I must emphasise this is what I do with mine - the one you have may be different.

    Open your browser on whatever device you choose.

    In the address bar type 10.20.30.40

    Do not type any of the usual things - http or .com or anything like that.

    That will take you to the iBoost log in page.

    they are maybe only available online o_O been there with other stuff, nothing worse than the recorded BT message while you hold for ever for help when router has failed, telling you all the information I might need will be online :mad:

    You can only connect to networks for which you have the password or number. For example on a campsite. You won't be able to connect to a local business unless it is unprotected, which is unlikely.

    What sort of networks can you see?

    :). Nothing fun about wifi these days. Wherever you are there seems to be too many people diluting the bandwidth.
