    Default anyone know about WI FI installation?

    can it be a do it yourself job?

    I have wi fi in my office but want to expand the signal....the local internet carrier quoted me around 2 grand to get the job done

    I know so little about this, that I wondering how it could be so expensive to install a few antennas and/or repeaters?

    people now expect to have wi fi available in RV parks, but I'm just not of the mindset to spend that much money on something I'm expected to give away free.

    Start off with a WI FI pavilion and charge a fee. See what kind of interest it brings. I don't recall seeing any RV's parked outside Starbucks... I thought people went to places like yours to get away from that type of shit.

    Sounds like lot fees might be going up this summer.

    get away from it all? Nah, they come with satellite TV and double air conditioners and microwave ovens.
    then they set up their laptops on the picnic tables and log on while they're waiting for their pizza delivery.

    why they call it "camping" is beyond me

    Well, I would think an RV park would be a special challenge. Router is probably in the main building, which probably is on one edge of the park, so adding a booster probably still wouldn't give you complete coverage. If you got properly insulated/shielded category 5 cable run to different areas of the park, are there buildings that you could put access points in?

    Set up a secure hub. Make them come to you. Trust no one.

    that's the problem...I have two boosters, but there are areas shielded by trees, and all these metal sided RV's seem to make the signal rather random and scattered.

    maybe paying a professional 2 grand isn't such a bad deal, but this group of clowns has been working on this proposal for a YEAR! I don't want to pay 2 grand only to have it not work anyway.

    In the summer I vacation at a little beach community at the shore. They have about 50 beach cottages and at the center of it is a small convenience store where they offer free wifi. If you want to get a signal you need to be near that store. They even built a patio area with some tables and chairs because in the mornings there are usually 15 or so people checking emails. It gradually decreases as the day goes on. That may be the way to go for you.

    Give them "free" wifi, just raise your rent $5 a month per camper, that should offset it.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    sickman may have just hit the nail on the head.....doable even as a DIY for me.

    I've got the perfect place that I've already spent too much money renovating.
