How to Share a Wireless Network

It is common to receive or have a network in our home and want to know How to share a WiFi connection between multiple devices or users of our home.

The operation will be different depending on as receive this signal WiFi. Read the document and themotorcyclers will explain the WiFi signal in several cases.

Share WiFi network with USB antenna

This is the case we have a WiFi antenna with USB connection. We are receiving the signal on 1 computer to which we connect the antenna via the USB port. And want to share this network WiFi between several mobile, tablets, and our home laptops.

If you do not have yet the WiFi antenna and want to install an antenna WiFi USB I recommend you read the following article which will see information on antenna to use according to the reach you need.

If you have the WiFi adapter and receive the signal you need to repeat, you have several options for sharing this type of signal:

1 share WiFi through Router USB network

Some models of Routers as Alpha R36 have USB connection to connect a USB antenna. In this way, the R36 alpha will receive the signal and team will distribute it among several.

  • In favour:
    • Economical solution
    • There is not a very complex configuration.
    • It does not require leave any on computer
  • Against:
    • The new network creates the R36 won’t be high-speed. I.e. will lose a significant speed with the network would receive only antenna WiFi USB.

If you opt for this solution I recommend you to read this document where you’ll see more information about How to configure the Repeater Alpha R36

2 share WiFi network using a computer on

We do not believe is the most convenient option, since the computer must be switched on to split the signal, but it can be a useful in some cases way if this is a temporary solution and don’t want to spend much money.

She is installing two different chipset, WiFi antennas with different drivers, can set an antenna to receive the WiFi signal (this is the normal mode). And the second antenna or the internal WiFi in walkie talkie mode AP issue signal WiFi.

In the following document you have information on how to configure common RT3070 chipset WiFi antennas to broadcast signal. So you can receive the signal with other WiFi antenna and with this signal.

Another simple way to do this feature is to use a software that receive the signal and share it. There are many free software with these features, some are: VirtualRouter Plus, Connectify Hotspot, Maryfi give WiFi.

  • In favour:
    • Very economical solution since it does not require any Router. A former team of few benefits can serve as.
    • The loss of speed is not as large as in the R36 Alpha
  • Against:
    • Need to have the computer while you want to repeat the signal.

Share WiFi with an external access point

In our opinion it is the most professional way of doing the installation, but it is also the most expensive.

You can install an outdoor access point (UBIQUITIrecommend) pointing to the origin of the signal. Once you receive this signal via a cable ethernet can connect to a Router in your home and place it in the area you need.

Share a very close your home WiFi signal

Imagine you have checked get a WiFi signal in your home. And this signal is strong enough to be able to repeat it.

In this case a Repeater you can install in your home WiFi for this signal to repeat it in your home thus amplifying the signal. A WiFi Repeater works “listening” or getting a WiFi network and creating in the place where this installed a new network from the one received. In this way you can amplify the signal in your home.

If you need more information of the repeaters WiFi, on how to install them and how they work, I recommend you to read the following document of our blog.
