Off Grid Nighthawk

Hi All,

 

New to this forum. Looking for help on an off grid application. I have an off grid cabin in the middle of the woods. I do have a Verizon Tower about 4 miles away as the crow flies. Cell service is hit and miss but sometimes i do get 2 bars. I am just looking to work off a laptop from the cabin. What Model or application should i use to obtain WIFI in the Cabin? power come is from Generator.

Not sure what you're plan is here. 

Are you planning on using a hotspot for internet connection? 
Are you just wanting a router to connet to for non-internet usage? 

What's the goal here?

Re: Off Grid Nighthawk

You're caught in a catch22. your only option is cellular, correct?

if so, its not how good is the hotspot but how good is the coverage. 

Its going to be finding the ISP with the best coverage at your location. 

A decent hotspot can help but for the most part, its the isp's coverage. 

 

Another option? Check to see if starlink is available in your area. Its supposed to be getting more and more coverage.
