This RadioLabs antenna was not as "high power" as it advertises. In fact, I found that I often had faster with the antenna unplugged. Several friends were using other antennas from different companies and there's were always faster. They could use videochat services when I couldn't log in with my RadioLabs antenna.

The drivers that come included on a cd with the antenna are poor quality and difficult to use. I found typos in the menu options! I contacted customer service for help with driver problems and they told me I was on my own.

I have used the unit for about 3 years, and it is by far the best unit I have tried for my application, which IS NOT marine. I put it up on an 8 foot piece of PVC pipe, stuck in a bucket of sand to capture the public wi-fi network across the sound in the Bahamas for the week we are there......the tower is approximately 3-4 miles away across the water. Obviously, my reception is lower...only about 3 bars, but better than nothing, and I can purchase wi-fi by the week without worrying about a hurricane blowing away a permanent antenna. My big complaint with this unit is that it IS NOT Windows-8 compatible. I had it installed on my old old old lap top, which is now slow, buggy and nearly useless, and I would like to put it on my new lap top, but cannot because of the compatibility issues. I find it hard to believe that this company has not developed a new software driver compatible with Windows-8. I even had my local computer folks try it, and they were unable to install the drivers to my Winsodws-8 machine. Now I am stuck with the old computer for this trip...again! UGH

I purchased this antenna along with RadioLab's repeater to extend my home wifi network to my trailer, which sits less than 20' from the house. When they say line of sight", take it literally. In order for the antenna to work, I would need to position my home router directly in front of it. Unlike the antenna in my computer, the CaptiFi "doesn't see through walls." I returned this product.
