Wave WiFi EC-AP-ER Ethernet converter and bridge / extended range
Ethernet converter and bridge providing an extended range (ER) ship to shore link and relay with an access point for local wireless access. Multiple users aboard the boat can use laptop computers to connect to the EC-AP-ER using the laptop’s wireless card.
Wave WiFi's EC-ER and EC-AP-ER produce a whopping 800mW of output power providing extended range connections to good quality HotSpots.
The ER models have all of the features and elements of the EC- Series that have made Wave WiFi so popular for convenience and dependability. All ER units ship with the latest firmware version of Wave WiFi's proprietary web-based interface. The EC-ER supports WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption and has a unique, built-in 'help' system, free online firmware upgrades and free online global weather forecasting from iMap Weather.
The EC-ER and EC-AP-ER are Ethernet Converters (EC) so a direct connection can be made to any Ethernet enabled device resulting in flawless performance as a standalone system or integrated into the boat's network. Also, there is no software to install, no USB restrictions and no power-robbing USB connections. This means better performance for plug-and-play computer accessories like SKYPE TM phones and webcams. The EC-AP-ER models feature a built-in access point allowing you to create your own access point (HotSpot) aboard your boat. With the EC-AP-ER multiple computers aboard the boat can connect to the access point wirelessly.
