1. I want to get Long Range WiFi for my Aqua PC, but have been told it is not possible if I also have the NMEA 2000 gateway installed, is this correct?
2. I am trying to setup a wireless network through my Mac using your WL series, how would I do this?
3. I have bought a WL400 from you guys and I am having a problem installing it, I am running it on a MAC with Snow Leopard OSX, any ideas?
4. Where should I mount my WL500 antenna? At the top of the mast?
5. Why is my WiFi adaptor shown as “Wireless Network Connection 3” in the Windows Connection Manager?
6. I am running Windows 64-bit; do the drivers supplied for the WL series work with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems?
7. My WL50/400/500 is not picking up a very good signal, why is this?
8. I am using Windows 7, and wondered if you still have drivers for the WL200 antenna?
9. 15. I would like the ability to use Windows Wireless Manager instead of the bundled RealTek software, is this possible?
10. I have plugged my Digital Yacht product into the USB, but it does not appear to be working, what do I do?
