I switched to a MiFi this summer and am thrilled with it. Wireless anywhere onboard, the size of a cell phone and no antennas to fool with. Works anywhere in the States where you can get a cell signal for $40/month.
Streamed movies through Netflix, browsed the web and checked email in September while living aboard fifteen or more days and never got near my data limit (which is what I was initially worried about).
It's a much better solution than the repeater/router/antenna setup I had previously.
The MiFi units are available from Comcast, Verizon, Virgin, AT&T, etc. so it pays to compare prices and plans.
