Hi guys,

I have a unit from Harbortronics set up which I am having difficulties with getting a reliable wifi signal from the modem/dongle combination. I am in the middle of the country in the UK. Has anyone had similar problems and managed to resolve them? The issue is that with the system they provide, there are limited modem options to use which then limits the number of compatible dongles. The one which we went for which is compatible is quite old and doesnt pick up a signal - newer dongle models are not compatible.

Thanks in advance, Will.

I should add - I am not having a go at Harbortronics - its a great product! We are using it in a very challenging location - in the middle of nowhere, with a very poor 3g signal!

Will.

Not sure to understand your issue.

Hi fanf, the issue is with getting a strong enough 3g signal so that we can upload the images straight from the camera online. 3g reception is not great at ground level but we are on a 10m scaffold where mobile phone reception is much better...we are trying a different provided to see if that works. Beyond that I dont have any idea how to try to resolve the issue - have you any advice?
