A complete wireless solution with nothing else to purchase! The wireless card is actually built into the antenna! Plug into USB, install driver, mount antenna and pick up the longest range wifi possible from 360 degrees around your location!

“All-in-One” original travel wireless system with a simple connection over a computer's USB port. The WaveRV Marine works with Windows XP through Windows 8, Windows 10, All Apple OS, and Linux.

In 2004, RadioLabs, a wireless innovator, added to our wireless line the first simple solution made exclusively for the marine community. We here at RadioLabs are avid marine enthusiasts that frequent the California coastline. Being the wireless leader and hardcore tech geeks, we pretty much only think of ways to constantly stay online.

When RadioLabs designs any new Generation product, we ensure that it is completely, 100% compatible with all our legacy products. This means, the same USB Repeater, the same mounting hardware, the same software, all work seamlessly, with full 150 MBPS wireless speeds. RadioLabs takes pride in the fact that we were the first wireless company to design a travel antenna for RV and Marine users. We have fine tuned this product over the last 12 years, into the high performance antenna products in the market today. Still the best available option for the traveller. Simple to install, simple to use, simple to repeat at full B/G and N speed! The new GEN III receiver is fantastic, finding even more access points than ever before!

Extremely simple to connect – This is virtually a plug-and-play setup. After mounting the antenna and installing the drivers the most difficult part of installation is connecting a USB cord. High speed access is not only extremely easy to get, but readily available from the comfort of your boat. No external power is needed, as the WaveRV Marine Wifi antenna is powered through the USB port.

With our powerful wireless card combined with an 8dB omni antenna the WaveRV Marine gives an amazing performance boost over integrated wireless and stock cards. Typical results give up to 30 times the range of notebooks with integrated wireless. when mounted on the roof of your boat.

We've improved our original design many times! RadioLabs new chipset offers even more performance, with 2 times the output power and an even more sensitive receiver.

The WaveRV Marine is proudly made in the US. We keep production of these close to our location so that we can ensure they meet our strict quality standards.


Antenna comes with a 15' USB cable attached. (marine mount for boat is not included)
