RogueWave Long Range Marine WiFi

Most marinas now offer a WiFi hotspot but depending on which slip you are in, the signal strength can vary.  Enter the RogueWave antenna. The web-based firmware permits you to scan for public access points (hot spots) and provides a detailed diagnostic of each hotspot’s relative signal strength.  This same technology allows you to access WEP, WPA and WPA2 encrypted access points.

The RogueWave by Wave WiFi is an ultra-small, compact Wireless Bridge and Ethernet Converter with output power of an incredible 800mW. All the features and elements of the larger EC-Series like the user friendly, proprietary web-based interface are available in this easy to set-up kit. The Rogue comes with an 8.5dB omni-directional outdoor antenna and is powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE). This means there is a single cable between the computer or router and the Rogue. The Rogue can also be used with variety of remote mount, 2.4 GHz omni-directional antennas.

The antenna is designed to be installed outside but many boaters have reported that they have installed the antenna inside the cabin and still receive a really strong signal.

Like all Wave WiFi models, the RogueWave is an Ethernet Converter (EC) so a direct connection can be made to any Ethernet enabled device, router or switch. This means that, when connected to a wireless router, the RogueWave provides Internet connectivity for numerous wireless devices aboard the boat. There is no software to install and no power robbing USB connections. The ultra-small size of the RogueWave makes it the ideal ‘personal’ Ethernet Converter/Wireless Bridge for delivery captains and crew. The Rogue is perfect for wireless Internet access on a smaller boat or an RV.
