    Default Wifi in trailer

    How difficult is it to get a sort of permanent set up for wifi in my offroad van.
    Can some one shed some light on how to do it please.

    A 3G router will do the job as suggested above, but why not just set a mobile device (maybe a tablet you already own) to WiFi Hotspot?

    Wifi is easy.....getting a signal, that is the main issue. Any wireless router has WiFi capability . But it needs some kind of connection to the internet.

    As shown before , the little mifi routers work well and has a decent range . But WiFi has problems passing through solid objects so the more interference, the lower the signal

    You can also look at something like this to help boost cell signal.

    Why not just use a spare mobile phone as "hot spot" to connect all the devices to?
