MiFi and external WiFI Router

I have a Jetpack 4G and wanted to know if there is a way to add / connect a 3rd party Router / WiFI unit to get a better local WiFi covereage?

I use an app from the iPad for video production and it uses WiFi to make all of it's connections, if there is a weak area in the WiFi the cameras will freeze or just stop working for a few seconds and then it catches up.

I was thinking if I could add a router / wifi box that would take in the uplink (Jetpack) as WiFi and send out the WiFi to the devices using the Jetpack as the Internet source.

Just looking for the best solution to keep my productions online.

djwoodyard, I know how important it is to stay connected throughout the day. The MiFi is a standalone device. There is no Verizon range extender for 4G Jetpacks or Hotspots that would provide you with extended range. As far as third party devices, we cannot advise, or guarantee something like that would work. 


I'm sorry we're not able to give you a solid answer for a third party device.
