Hi community members,

I would like to use the RUT240 with an external Poynting MIMO-3-15 aerial on my camper to increase 4G reception, but also to increase the WiFi reception if we are on a camping or such like. It is this latter scenario that I cannot get my head around. If I connect the external WiFi aerial to the router to receive a WiFi signal, what will the router use to transmit the WiFi signal to other devices? I guess I am asking if the router can be used both as a WiFi receiver and a radio at the same time and if not what sort of setup is best to achieve this?

Accessing and transmitting are operated through the same WIFI antenna and yes, you will be able to use your router as a wireless station and an access point at the same time.

Here you will find full wireless functional capabilities on RUT240:

Thank you that is very helpful. I take it the external aerial will have no problem reaching the phones and laptop inside the camper? In some setups I looked at people appeared to be using a WiFi stick/card an attached aerial placed before the router.
