Long range WiFi extender hotspot, this router will amplify and Internet connection over a long distance with its powerful antenna. Works great with Mac computers, tablets, and smart phones.

The CC Vector Home is a more powerful WiFi solution than a standard wireless Wifi Extender.

- Works With All Devices.

How it Works: Our antenna can be located so it more favorably connects to a distant WiFi signal from your router. The antenna is wired to the CC Vector which transmits and receives a new reliable WiFi signal to all types of devices. It uses the most popular 2.4 GHz band which also is the longest-range band. It also supports 5 GHz for shorter ranges.The newly created signal by the CC Vector has the same strength and coverage as a router.

Great for extending the range to upstairs, back rooms, garage and garden. The CC Vector is a good choice to deliver a new signal across a street. Bob's shop is about 50 ft. away from the router in the house and there are several walls that make the WiFi signal from a standard range extender unreliable. The CC Vector Home easily picked up the signal when the antenna was put in a shop window toward the house and delivered a robust signal to his Internet radio and phone in the shop.

The CC Vector advantage is a high power omni-directional Antenna which allows for better placement and pickup of the host router signal. The antenna's sensitivity exceeds average WiFi range extenders designed for in-home use and the system works on all Windows®, Android®, Apple®, iPhone® and Smart TVs.

It is small and can be mounted on a wall, to a window with suction cups or outside for improved coverage and stability. The host signal can be rather weak and the CC Vector Home will do a good job.

There are two available Ethernet ports on the CC Vector for hardwiring additional computers or routers. The setup is straightforward for basic computer users.

The CC Vector Home is capable of supporting two users watching standard quality video like Netflix™ or several users browsing the Internet simultaneously. As distance is increased, speed is reduced.

Comes with C. Crane US based tech support.

I am trying to setup my CC Vector system and when I enter the IP Address of 192.168.18.1 into a browser, I get the message "Unable to Load Page" or "No Internet" message. What am I doing wrong?

There are a few possibilities:
  1. The most common reason is that your WiFi device (laptop, smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc.) is not connected to the CCrane-***** WiFi network (as shown in the instructions for Step B1).
    1. Go to your WiFi settings on your device (laptop, smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc.) and connect to the WiFi Network Name CCrane-***** and enter the password that is listed on the bottom of the repeater.
  2. Possibly using a search box instead of the Address Bar on the browser. Please make sure to type the IP address into the address bar not a search box.
  3. Some smartphones and tablets will not accept a direct input of an IP address. Entering 192.168.18.1 in their browsers search field will net a ‘No Internet’ message on the screen. For these browsers apps you must manually enter the hypertext command. It should be written as http://192.168.18.1 and then it will work to bring up the “Pick network to extend” screen of the CC Vector setup.
  4. Already connected to the internet of another network other than the CCrane WiFi or using Ethernet directly to another network or router. See above #1a steps.

I am in the setup of the CC Vector WiFi Repeater, and it is stuck on “Scanning”. Why is it not showing networks in the “Pick a network to extend”?

The cable may not be attached properly to the repeater and to the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3.
  1. Check the cable and make sure the main USB cable is connected to the USB port of the repeater (not the loose floppy one).
  2. Check the small end of the cable to make sure the Mini USB connector is pushed into the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 square pigtail completely.
  3. Check the base of the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 for lights:
    1. If blue and red lights are flashing, continue setup.
    2. If blue and red lights are not flashing on the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3, check cable again or try another cable.
    3. If there are no lights on the Super USB WiFi Antenna 3, try another cable or contact C. Crane Tech Support.

Do I need to be connected to the Internet before setting up the CC Vector WiFi Repeater?

No. You do need to connect your WiFi device to the CCrane-***** WiFi network or connect the Ethernet cable to a computer/laptop Ethernet port (if available) and to the CC Vector WiFi Repeater’s Ethernet connection.

The network I'm trying to connect to is not showing in the list under “Pick a network to extend”. Is there anything else I can do?

If you’re not receiving the network you expect to extend, it could be out of range or obstructed. Try repositioning the receiving antenna (USB WiFi Antenna) or move it to another location. Obstructions such as walls, trees, leaves, bushes, appliances, etc. can interfere with receiving a network. Basically, anything that is in the way of line of sight between where you want to receive the signal. This also includes where the original router is located.

 

An example would be if my house router WiFi signal is located in my basement and I’m trying to get the signal in my garage 500’ away. This isn’t going to work or if it does, it’s going to be of very low-grade quality. For this kind of scenario, you may need a WiFi bridge system with antennas at both locations or some other solution; please call C. Crane at (800) 522-8863 for help determining the best solution. It may also be due to the network not broadcasting as a 2.4GHz network. Our Super USB WiFi Antenna 3 will only detect a 2.4GHz network. It will not detect a 5GHz network.

Can this device be used to connect to a XFINITY WiFi, hotel, or RV Park hotspot?

Yes, our CC Vector systems can connect to most WiFi networks. These types of connections may not require a WiFi password to connect to their WiFi but do need account information to be entered using a web browser after connecting. First, follow the steps in the Quick Start Guide to get the USB light on our repeater to light up. Then open a browser to enter the login information that the hotspot provider has provided to you when you signed up for their service.

Can I change the network name and password of the WiFi repeater?

Yes. Follow these steps:
  1. Connect to the CCrane-***** WiFi network.
  2. Open a browser and enter the IP address of 192.168.18.1 to access the CC Vector setup.
  3. Click on Advanced (if you don’t see Advanced, click on the 3 lines in the upper left corner then click on Advanced).
  4. Click Local Network.
  5. Click Wireless 2.4G.
  6. Scroll down to Wireless "Master" Mode Configuration.
  7. Change "SSID (Network Name)" and "Key" ONLY.
  8. Click on Apply.

Why is the Internet too slow when I am connected to CC Vector WiFi Repeater?

Interference and noise can cause the connection to be slow. Make sure CC Vector repeater and USB antenna are separated at least 5 to 15 feet. Try rotating the USB Antenna horizontal, making sure to aim broad side towards the distant WiFi network. You can also add an additional router to the CC Vector WiFi Repeater via Ethernet. Lastly, check to make sure the USB cable is not coiled which may create line loss.

Will the CC Vector work with Security cameras?

It depends on the type of camera system. Cloud-based cameras will work because they generally only need an internet connection. Some popular brands that make cloud-based cameras are:
  • Nest Cam
  • Ring
  • Arlo (most models)
  • Zmodo (also makes NVR IP cameras)
  • Wyze
  • Blink
DVR/NVR IP Cameras may not work. These cameras need to connect to a base that is connected to the main network (router) to be accessed. The CC Vector creates its own network and will not let the cameras connect wirelessly to the base or the main network (router). DVR systems also have different requirements when it comes to the recorder. Specifically, in a DVR system, the user must connect every camera directly to the recorder. In comparison, an NVR system only requires that each camera connects to the same network. Please call C. Crane for recommendations of a customized WiFi system we offer that will work for these types of camera systems.
