    Hi, Can anyone tell me whether the Yagi Antenna is any good to boost WiFi connection. I've just googled it and some of the reviews say its not good. If this is the case, is there another better one on the market?

    Thanks

    Can't say about the yagi but @Addie on here runs motorhomewifi and sells an iboost unit which is very popular, maybe check out his site ?

    Thank for that jock. The iboost system looks a lot neater than the Jagi ariel. I'll show it to my husband when he comes home.

    I had a Yagi antenna and it was excellent if I just wanted to boost the available wifi signal into my laptop. It was a tad awkward to position on its mini, tripod stand but it worked well once positioned.

    However, I sold it as I now use my smartphone instead of my computer for most internet stuff and the www.motorhomewifi.com Aircard (plus antenna system) I have provides an 3/4g internet connection to several devices at the same time.

    My next "wifi "boosting system will definitely be from motorhomewifi.
