Comes Configured and Wired - Easy Setup, High Value

The Long Range WiFi Bridge System is the best way to connect two locations to the same network wirelessly up to 3 miles away. This system is very simple to set up. It comes preconfigured and wired by C. Crane so there are no settings to adjust or software to install. Just attach the antennas (sold separately) to each half of the bridge, at each location, and plug them in. Use larger antennas like the Point-To-Point WiFi Antenna for long distances, or smaller antennas for shorter distances. Good line of sight without obstructions must be achieved between both antennas for best reception. LED lights on each bridging device make it easy to align your antennas with each other.

Will it work for me?
  • Requires line of sight between two points (no obstructions, not even a tree)
  • Must be within three miles
  • Antenna must be mounted outside at approximately roof height at each location
  • You must have a router and Internet service at one location
  • If you are unsure of your system needs, please fill out this form and our specialist will contact you. Custom WiFi

You will need to connect the first half of the WiFi Bridge, using the supplied 60" (5 foot) Ethernet cable, to an empty LAN port on your router. The Wireless Bridge then beams the encrypted Internet signal to your second location wirelessly. The second half of the system terminates with an Ethernet cable that provides Internet and network connectivity to one computer or other WiFi devices by using a WiFi router. You will need power at both locations to power the Bridge.

The signal between the two points of the WiFi Bridge System are heavily encrypted for security. The cost of the WiFi Bridge System is a fraction of the more expensive proprietary systems.

Up to 150 feet of regular low loss Cat-5e or Cat-6 Ethernet cable (not included) can be used to mount the antenna even further away on top of a tree or tower.

Please Note: C. Crane recommends the following antennas with the Long Range WiFi Bridge System: Point to Point WiFi Antenna, 14dBi Indoor/Outdoor 2.4 GHz WiFi Antenna and High-Gain 8dBi 2.4GHz Outdoor WiFi Antenna. It is possible to use another company's antennas that use the N-female type connection however we do not recommend antennas with a higher gain than what we offer due to FCC restrictions.

Can I daisy chain WiFi Bridge Kits to get internet service at multiple properties?

Yes, you can. You hop WiFi signals from the "client" house to another "client" house. To do this you will need an additional WiFi Bridge Kit and an additional router. You would connect the second bridge kit to the second router.The radio is a Bluetooth receiver. Once paired, you can send Bluetooth audio from a Bluetooth device, such as your smartphone or tablet over to the radio.

Can I use another company's antenna with the WiFi Bridge System?

C. Crane recommends the following antennas with the WiFi Bridge System: Point to Point WiFi Antenna, 14dBi Indoor/Outdoor 2.4 GHz WiFi Antenna or High-Gain 8dBi 2.4GHz Outdoor WiFi Antenna. It is possible to use another company's antennas that use the N type connection however we do not recommend antennas with a higher gain than what we offer due to FCC restrictions.
