I'm hoping that someone out there has experience with a permanently-mounted antenna
that works for WiFi
and a 3G dongle. When we're cruising in Mexico
, we use Mexico's TelCel 'Banda Ancha' 3G dongle that give us pretty good internet
access when we're within their range and the dongle has a very small connector for an external antenna
. However, many of the marinas
also offer WiFi service
as well and when we're in range of that, we prefer to use it (there is a limit on a monthly basis for how much data you can download with the Banda Ancha but it's quite a bit).
I'm having an antenna bar added to the frame that supports my solar panels
and I'd like to have just one antenna for both services. Does anyone know of such an animal? Would I still need two antennas? What make of WiFi antenna have you permanently installed? Are you happy with it?
Fair winds and calm seas.
