    Wifi Question

    We are in the process of closing on a 5er and are trying to figure out how to create an internet network in our unit. We will be leaving pets in the unit at times and want to utilize the Compass Connect app while away and also monitor a Nest camera system we will be installing. What is everyone else doing to achieve this? I have read that the Winegard router is having issues with connecting to Verizon and ATT. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    It’s easy to create a network within the unit. What’s hard is getting internet service where you are. Some locations it is not reasonably possible. You should also be aware that many campgrounds prohibit leaving your pets unattended in the RV.

    These guys are pretty good, too. Eventually, I'll probably go with one of the pepwave products depending on what my needs end up being.

    I am planning to go with one of their bundles, right now trying to decide between the Full Timer Bundle versus the Ultimate Road Warrior bundle. Looks to me like the down side to the Full Timer Bundle is that it uses a CAT 6 Pepwave versus two CAT 12 modems on the more expensive Ultimate Road Warrior bundle.

    I'd like to use mine to do some video conference calls, also to stream on a Roku stick for TV.

    Does anyone have experience with the CAT 6 setup? Just want to see if I will regret the slower system.

    I get it; I need to be at a site with adequate cellular service; I can live with that limitation. I am also willing to live with having only a single cellular provider. I am interested in understanding the practical performance differences between a CAT 6 versus CAT 12 set-up.

    CAT 6 vs CAT 12 is going to really depend on you. Largest difference will be modem max theoretical speeds. Realistically CAT 6 speeds will do nearly everything most users will need and cellular data speeds will not exceeded the theo max in most areas you'll be RVing. If you have a lot of devices that will use the Wi-Fi, go CAT 12. More important will be decision on dual modem (not to be confused with dual sim). Dual modem and being able to simultaneously connect and use two services was a huge selling point for me in the Transit Duo.
