We got our Wirie a few months ago and are very happy with it. Given the cost we don't think we could put together the same components ourselves for less. It's still a small company so when I call or email
I get an immediate response from Mark, a very knowledgable and likable chap.
The Wirie kit came complete for installation
and the parts
can be easily detatched for replacement or upgrades. Since the antenna
booster itself is removable they provided a portable mini antenna so we can use it on or off the boat. A thoughtful feature which we appreciate having the option.
The system is powerful and elegant in it's simplicity. Perfect for plug
and play sailors like me where reading technical manuals
can be a misery, I mean a mystery. For example, while anchored out my computer saw 2 wifi signals before plugging in the Wirie USB cable. After plugging in and launching their software
I picked up 10 more wifi signals and could see their signal strength. I was able to get on a wifi with 80% signal strength and receive and transmit data with perfect reliability
. Not the case before the boost where my computer would drop the signal constantly while sending or receiving.
If you get Wirie I'm sure you'll be pleased and without regret. Let me know!
