Wireless cards for WIFI

I actually had a Verizon PCMCIA card that allowed the Admiral to surf the web at about 5 nm off of Daytona. I recently upgraded to the MIFI router, so that I can connect both my laptop and hers at the same time, and it also worked off the coast at about the same distance. They may vary in speed, but if you are boating and can get a cell phone signal, it may be worth considering. Since I live aboard, it was the best solution for me.
