I am unable to connect to and repeat the free WiFi from (McDonalds, Starbucks, other Free WiFi, etc) which is some distance away.

The design of the repeater is to boost up the signal from a campground that is making an effort to provide WiFi to their guests using outside antennas.  By putting the outside antenna up above the other RV’s around you, you will get a line of sight to the campground’s outdoor WiFi antennas that would normally be blocked.

If you are trying to use the repeater to get free Internet from a free public WiFi source such as McDonalds, Starbucks, etc., you must understand that their WiFi is provided inside their building and they are not making an effort to put out a strong signal outside of their building. Many of those establishments are using methods to keep their signals inside their building. The ability of the repeater to bring in those WiFi signals especially at a distance, is technically challenging and not something we promote as a feature of our Repeater Kit.
