As per the subject, what work did you manage to do today?

I finally wired up two more 240v sockets so that when we have mains connected we can charge all our electric goods :D

I looked at the passenger side wing mirrors and agreed with myself that they need to be better

Received my wifi range extender today and tried it out in the truck.
Works great and hopefully I will get some better reception now when travelling in Europe.

:D

Hi Paul,
I'm by no means a IT expert so excuse my simple description. What I wanted was a wifi receiver that was better than the one build into my laptop/tablet/phone so that when I'm out and about can receive/send or better receive/send data from a wifi hot spot. Example is you are at a camp ground and cannot receive the free wifi of the camp ground as you parked at that perfect spot furthest away from the main building.
When I started searching around I found a free e-book published by another overlander who compared several solutions/hardware and antennae.
The good news is it is not expensive and modular, i.e. if you want more you can spend more later. I started with a ALFA Network AWUS051NH V2 (2.4/ 5GHz Dual Band USB WiFi Dongle with Detachable RP-SMA Antenna) and a 10 meter active USB cable (Alfa USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable).
Now the test was to sit in Lola who is parked in our drive and see how many networks I could pick up with my laptop. In this case I could only see our network and our neighbours. Then I connected the Alfa receiver, put it on the roof of Lola through the roof hatch and connected it via the USB cable to the laptop. Voila, I had the networks of half the village :-) ok, we only have 27 houses here in our village but I was very please. In AP mode I can use it as a dongle, so tablet and phone can use the receiver as well. Total cost was just over £40 on Amazon.
Next step would be to change the antenna for one that has a better dB value but I will try this setup first.
Hope that helps

Stefan

That sounds good Steff. Only trouble is my 13 year old daughter will now be hanging around the truck to keep in touch with her buddies instead of disappearing off to sit outside the campsite office with all the other hoodies and teenagers to use the WiFi unless I can secretly restrict her access :lol:

It was a hard decision, more electronic or not?
In the end I thought it was worth it and finally installed a new on-board computer.

Reasons that convinced me in the end was that the technology is around since 1977, still running and going strong. Good track record in the most adverse of situation and a proven overlander with experience in the dessert and many other environments.

:D
