Default RE: Wireless at the Marina . . . help please

you may be able to put the range extender on your boat. It will boost a weak signal
Damn, wish I had thought of that.

Gus, if they are running non-secure wireless (which I ssume they are unless they had to give you specific settings to put in your laptop) a range extender simply picks up a weak signal and boosts it. It would actually benefit others in your area who have weak signals as well. You need to find out what wireless transmitter they are using and get the same technology if not the same brand. i.e. if they are running a Linksys 802.11g, get a Linksys 802.11g range extender.
