By matching a passive 2.4 GHz antenna, such as the Scout KS-61 / KS-62, and an Ethernet cable the ROCKET can be configured to receive and transmit WiFi signals from any remote area within range and to operate in several modes:
Client Mode – to receive the WiFi signal and exports it to the Ethernet port of your laptop.
Access Point Mode – to create a powerful, secure wireless network by simply connecting to one of the LAN ports on your existing router, providing Internet connectivity for numerous wireless devices aboard the boat.
Bridge Mode – in which two of the devices are used to form a seamless point to point link at a distance of several miles.
Repeater Mode – to receive another wireless radio, and rebroadcast it with another broadcast signal name (SSID) or with the same SSID.

The ROCKET is powered via POE (Power-Over-Ethernet), just use the included power injector and it has power and data transmitted over CAT-5 cabling. With its incredible 500mW output power, the ROCKET is the best high power wireless tool designed.
