It sounds like you simply need to boost your WiFi signal. What you need to get is a WiFi Relay located between your current WiFi source and your car. This should boost your signal enough to maintain the connection.

You wouldn't need an outdoor model. Locate it closer to your car, but within range of the WiFi source.

Robot, Thank You very much for your help with this. You gave me the confidence to go to Fry's and buy a Hawking Technology range extending antenna. It seems to be working fine. Please contact Chop Chop over at Towbin for a big discount on some new wheels. if that's not your style I call Steve and Roger over at P/W Ferrari Masarati told to take good care you. If you need more I know George, Gavin, and Johnny Brenden over at the Palms tell them I said hi. Ciao' Matt C
