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!
Pretty much spot on. Any questions, let me know.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
