I'm looking into options for getting long range Wifi on the boat. I was going to order a 5milewifi based on the PS report, but then discovered that it won't work with my Macbook. Did an internet search and came up with a couple more possibilities and I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback on them before I order one. My son has Radio Labs system and it seems to work, but it's a little fussy to set up and I'm not sure about the range. He's in the Bahama's and it's working OK for him but I'm not sure it works with Mac. The other poss. is Wifi Signal King, the 4 watt and the 3.8 watt systems which do work on Mac and and Windows and seem to be plug and play systems. Anyone have one? Any other possibilities out there? Thanks.
