DIY Guide- How to Make a Mobile Wi-Fi Hot Spot out of Your Car

Wouldn’t it be great if you could somehow make your 4-wheeler into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot that lets you connect to the internet wherever you go? This is what the team at Bluechip Supercar have helped us write, and if you are here, you might as well learn how to do it yourself, instead of hiring someone. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install an internet modem in your car.

Pick Your Router.

First step’s first, you need to acquire a router. There are many models of mobile routers bout small and large, so get the one that you can fit in your car’s interface section. Remember that they should be out of reach for you kids, or another passenger. So pick the shape and size of a router that you can easily fit in your car compartment. We recommend a D-link modem as it is the most reliable one on the market among others.

How to Connect the Modem with Your Car.

There are multiple ways that you can do this but let’s see what the most efficient and easiest way to do it. You’ll need a couple of extension cables, a USB 3G socket, laptop, and a regular car adapter and you ready to go. Start by plugin the USB socket into a power source. Since there isn’t an extension to directly plug you USB to a car, use the car adapter to connect the USB 3G socket to a power source. Plug the USB in the socket and turn the modem on. Now it all comes down to setting up a network connection on your laptop. After you’ve done this, created a  network and a password, you won’t need a laptop anymore. Now you are set to go, as you’ll have a secure and easy-to-connect internet access wherever you go. Remember to turn off the modem anytime you’re not using it, as it will drain your car battery faster than usual if you don’t.
