GNS Wireless Hotspot Tip: When choosing to implement a Wireless Hotspot, choose an outdoor Access Point that has a high power output. This will limit your signal loss, and increase your coverage area. The basic packages that we offer below are recommended to be used with an Access Point of 60mW output power or higher for best results.

Please note: The distance that you will get when communicating directly to laptop users will be drastically lower then communicating between two high gain antennas. This is due to the fact that the majority of laptop WiFi cards have a low transmit power. To compensate for this, we recommend you install more then one Access Point in an area such as a campground, RV resort, or Marina. By spreading the coverage area beyond a single antenna, you will increase the range that your customers can connect. The more antennas that your customers have the option to connect to, the better their signal will be, and therefore the faster their Internet connection will be.
