good product

June 1, 2010

I purchased the autonet after doing massive amounts of research on it for my parents. They have an RV and travel frequently across the country and always like to be connected to the internet to keep up with emails and see what places of interest there are whereever the road takes them. They couldn't be happier with the product. Set up wasn't the easiest at first but once they got in touch with a customer service rep and he walked my father through the set up they have never had another problem. They never lost service and stream music and home videos we send them of their grandchildren when they're away. this is the perfect gift for people like my parents that are full time travelers love the internet. I would recommend this product to anybody who is a traveler and hates to be out of touch. Well worth the money. Just ask my parents....

Working 100% in the Wilds of Southern Colorado

March 8, 2010

The Autonet works better than my satellite dish when used with a cell phone repeater. We live in a cellular dead zone in Southern Colorado, if you don't have local cell service, it is really hard to get a signal. Our Autonet picks up and keeps the connection 90% of the time when used in a remote location and 100% of the time when used in an area with better 3G reception. We adapted ours (not recommended by Autonet) so it can be used inside with 110 plug in or with a car adapter - we easily connect 2 laptops with no problems. My business is internet based, so having 24/7 reliability is a MUST and Autonet delivers! I just hope they come out with a manufacturer adapted unit that allows the stationary and portable options we integrated into our unit.

Good value

Easy to install, good connectivity. I purchased it for my kids to stay connected while on road. I received pictures, e-mails. Only in remote areas (mountains etc) was no connection. Otherwise, no regrets. Money well spent.

November 9, 2009

We are full time RV'rs. With autonet we are now able to use our Lap top nearly everywhere we may go. Many RV Parks provide internet service if we go to their clubhouse, these systems usually are so loaded up that downloads are very slow!. With autonet we're now able to get faster connects without having to leave the comfort of our RV, anytime, day or night. As we travel we can also plug in if necessary to google maps etc..

Kind of an awesome product!

October 13, 2009

We 1/2 time in an RV. WiFi at RV parks just plain usually suck. This is a great solution for up to 5 people to have a connection. My technical issues with them have been handled with exceptional and professional care. I just changed out the antennas and WOW! Signal strength and speed has doubled. Good stuff...

Love it!

October 7, 2009

Since buying my unit, last April, my wife and I have traveled, in our RV, from Idaho to Southern California, back to Idaho, to Indiana and Ohio and back to Idaho. In all these travels we were connected to the internet at least 99% of the time. The unit was very reliable and the data speed was quite adequate. I would recommend it to anyone having a need for mobile wireless. I only wish that Autonet would allow stopping and starting of service. As it is I use the unit for 2 or 3 months out of the year, but pay for 12 months. That is a bit tough for a fixed income retiree.

Internet for the road

October 1, 2009

Bought this for internet at the beach house. Not there all the time and getting full time service there would be cost prohibative. This gives me fairly good speed(much better than dial up) and I have it whereever I go. I have even used it deep in a national park. I wired it so that it plugs into ciger lighter and I move it from car to car.

Could only be happier if it were FREE! :)

September 1, 2009

My husband and I live in Norway during the summers and RV it during the winter (GA., USA). After experiencing difficulties with the RV Park's WiFi "hotspots", we opted to purchase AutoNet Mobile. Best decision we've ever made! My husband takes the router with him in the car and surfs while I'm shopping or at doctors appointments. It's SO versatile! As we drive a lot when in the U.S., we can search for hotels along the way on-line. It's been invaluable to us and we've spread the word throughout our RV park. I think everyone owes it to themselves to give it a try.

very easy to use

August 4, 2009

I have had this WIFI for 6 months now and love it!! I had cable broadband and this is just as good maybe even better because you can take it with you. I have it in our motor home and can use it in the house as well.Been to Detroit several times since and had no lost signal ever. Several friends that camp with us are going to buy one also.I can also take it out and put it in our car.Just hook up a lighter plug to the unit and plug into lighter outlet or 12 volt outlet.I can even take it to work in a all metal building and still get WIFI reception

AutoNet Mobile

July 13, 2009

I would recommend the Autonet Mobile Wireless WiFi. We intalled it in our Motorhome and found it very reliable if there was a stong enough cell phone signal. There were a few remote areas that did not have a good signal but most of the time it was very reliable and useful.
