What the Popular Magazines and Blogs Say About Land and Sea WiFi!
and article Oct 2010:
That's a beautiful sight, and I don't mean my float mate's headsail furl. Those six LEDs on the Rogue Wave WiFi transceiver
are showing (from the bottom up) that it's getting power (via the Ethernet cable), that it's made a connection with a down-below computer (or router), and finally that its connection with an onshore hotspot is good enough to light up all four signal strength indicators. And I can attest that if the hotspot itself has a good Internet connection, this high power WiFi radio is ready to rock. I've been pretty pleased this season with the performance of the Wave Comet I wrote about last March -- it far outperforms the WiFi built into my PCs or phones -- but the Rogue leaves the Comet in the dust...

I have developed a favorite, though, and that's the Rogue Wave! Click here for full story
article April 2010:
Having been in the recreational and commercial marine Wi-Fi business for several years, the company has a good idea of what works at sea and what doesn’t. The Rogue Wave’s interface was much cleaner, clearly indicating the most powerful hotspots nearby and making it easier to setup an onboard network with multiple computers.
The Rogue Wave is clearly the work of an established company with experience in the finicky recreational market. If you want good tech support and are concerned about having someone back the product for years from now, consider the RogueWave.
Rogue Wave pulls in WiFi signals from afar
One of the greatest headaches for the RVer in this information-driven age has to be Internet connectivity. Chances are great you're already running e-mail to keep in touch with the family and friends. Add in Internet searches, bill paying, photo uploading--pretty soon, connecting to the Internet is a big thing. How can you stay connected?
Enter the Rogue Wave. This handy electronic device (technically a wireless bridge and Ethernet converter) is like putting your laptop (or WiFi equipped desktop) computer on WiFi steroids. Imagine "tying" into a Starbucks WiFi connection--blocks away from the store. It's possible--in fact, even longer connections can be possible. Click here for full article
If you’re an RVer looking to improve your Internet connections, take a look at the Rogue Wave Wireless Bridge and Ethernet Converter. I have been working with WiFi equipment almost since the beginning of the technology. I have an arsenal of devices, large and small, that I have collected over our years of RVing. The Rogue Wave is the latest and I like it.
The Rogue Wave is a device to extend the effective range of a WiFi Hotspot . It works exceptionally well and is easy to set up and use.
article May 2011:
The package, provided to us by Randy at LandAndSea WiFi, arrived with a good quality marine antenna, rail and fixed mounts, ethernet cables – all the gear needed to get you up-and-running fast. Running the cables and installing the unit proved relatively easy but the beauty was in the software configuration… I simply plugged in the ethernet cord and entered the company website in my browser… and was presented with a list of available connections which I could sort by signal strength, encryption and type.
One click later and I was online!
For those on coastal runs or ships that visit ports frequently I highly suggest the WaveWiFi Rogue...

The fact is, I couldn’t be happier. I know Randy’s not a Mac guy so he might not get this, but the highest compliment I can give to a tech product is that it is very Mac-like. And so it is with the Rogue Wave
. Clean, simple, and it just works.
To help us stay connected while on the road, I researched Wi-Fi boosters and antennas.
This setup looked like it would do the trick -- the Wave WiFi Rogue: http://www.landandseawifi.com/products/wavewifi-rogue
I installed it last week, just before we left on our trip. Well, two days into the trip, we got a chance to check it out. We were in a park in the panhandle of Texas. Fired up the computer -- no wireless networks detected by Windows Vista.
After setting up the Wave Rogue antenna and plugging it into the booster, nine Wi-Fi hotspots came right up. Several were open (non-encrypted) and we were able to get right to the Internet.
Less powerful antenna/boosters may help in campgrounds with weak signals, but this one also pulls in hot spots from miles away. We got on to an open hotspot in a coffee shop at least two miles away. I was impressed.
Takes less than one minute to erect/stow.
The user interface and documentation on the Wave Rogue are TOP-NOTCH. It took me less than five minutes after plugging it in the first time to pull up all the hot spots in the area, determine which were encrypted, and find a coffee shop with a good signal and get online.

Included everything you need-quality marine antenna, mount, cables, -all that is needed for fast connection.Installation of the equipment does not involve specific skills, but still the main advantage of the Rogue is not in it. This modem is very user-friendly menu that allows you to connect to the internet and visit the site you want in just a few seconds! To do this, select the connection from the pop-up list (they can be sorted by quality and signal strength), click on it, and you're online...
