Sailingdog, could you let a newbie know if his understanding is correct?

I get a poor signal from the marina wifi to get my email and such. I want more bars, so I buy a Nanostation 2 for $79 from an appropriate vendor. I attach it to a rail or haul it up the stick using my courtesy flag halyard, depending on where I need it to get a good signal. I also need to get an ethernet cable of the appropriate length that runs down to my salon. "POE Supply and Injector Included" I take to mean that there is some power cord that I plug into 12V or 110V attached to a box that I plug the ethernet cable into to allow power to run to the Nanostation. I now plug an ethernet cable into the "injector" box to my laptop and am up and running? Or, I plug the ethernet cable into a Linksys WRT54G, and set up my laptop internal card to receive that network, is that right? Thanks in advance!
