So after some shopping we've got an aerial now. 5g. Its goign in the old hole for the TV Aerial

What are peoples router recommendations? Doesn't need to be 5g. 4g would be fine for now.

Thanks!

I suggest you try the search function top of screen but Teltonika although expensive seems very well liked
Teltonika make a good robust product and access to lots of features if you are that way inclined

Teltonika are feature packed and the RUT95* series offers dual sim and GPS, so can act as a tracker.

Wiring up for power on the Teltonika, they seems to have 4 pins, for a standard installation I assume its just the live and return. I can't see why they would need the other 2?

I bought this when I had a Rut950. It only used 2 wires

I'd found these as options

Broken Link Removed

or

Broken Link Removed

Easy enough, I've got the 12v cables that ran to the Aerial amplifier to play with now its being removed.

When I fitted a similar one, I found the TV aerial hole in the roof was too big. External was no problem, the aerial covers it OK, but inside I had to cut a circle of white ply (to match the ceiling) and cut the correct sized hole in it.

Thanks, that's worth knowing, its tucked right at the back of a cupboard and I do have some white Melamine sheet I can make a cap with if needed.

Teltonika RUT955 for me 👍👍 dual sim with fail over plus WiFi so if campsite Wi-Fi available it uses that, if that fails or too much traffic you can set it so it will switch to sim’s, a good all round package 👍

Also for me with the RUTX12 which I have running in the office pending installation with a Poynting MIMO-3-17 antenna in the MoHo this coming weekend. It’s running at 3.5x the speed of our wired broadband router at the moment using the ‘rubber duck’ antennas it comes with, so it’ll be interesting how it performs with the Poynting connected.

How do know which models have the Option to use the site wifi? Does it require an alternative Aerial?

No, I use the Poynting 5 in 1 MIMO 2xLTE, 2xWiFi and 1x GPS antenna, expensive but does the job great 👍

Teltonika 👍 I bought my RUT950 used, just to see what it was like, for £85 off eBay a year or so ago but the popularity appears to have put the prices up a bit now. Can’t fault it.
It depends what aerial you’ve bought though regarding which router to get. I went for a x2 Mobile x2 WiFi Panorama to match the four outlets on the RUT950.
The RUT240 you mentioned is supposedly very good too but it’s x2 Mobile x1 WiFi. Will it match your aerial?

Not knowing if motorhome life was for us, we bought a second hand Netgear nighthawk router, which included a new, unused Poynton puck antenna, very impressed so far.
Plus it has its own battery so you can take it out with you and have wifi anywhere, as long as you have a decent signal.

To be sure - does it do 4G as well? If not the coverage will be very sparse particularly in non urban areas.

(3G wil be pretty much gone by the end of 2024).

Yes i sometimes take mine in the car with me if I’m at places out in the sticks as EE is not very good on our phones around here.

Interested to hear how you get on with this set up as looking for a robust set up for the new van to support my working from home but not really "at home" working strategy
