LINK2

Compact 2.4 GHz Wireless Client

The Aigean LINK2 is a lightweight and compact wireless client that features significantly improved signal strength and quality versus traditional mobile devices (laptops, phones, tablets, etc.) when connecting to shore-based networks, such as those at marinas, hotels, homes, and businesses.

Designed primarily for smaller boats or RVs, the LINK Series offers great performance in a compact, weatherproof, and cost-effective package.

Both installation and operation are very simple:

  1. Mount the LINK on a rail or stanchion with the included mount.
  2. Run the Ethernet cable below deck and plug into your computer or existing network/router.
  3. Supply power to the power over Ethernet injector.
  4. Using the browser on your computer, phone, or tablet, visit the device's connection page to connect to the desired network.
  5. Enjoy internet access!

The LINK also works seamlessly with our on board Marine Access Points.

Easy Setup
Installation is fast and easy. No CD or software installation is required. Simply mount, plug in, and power on. The interface is web-based - any device with a modern web browser will work!
Long Range
The high-gain antenna coupled with the sensitive and high-powered radio in the LINK allow clean and reliable two-way communication with distant access points.
Weatherproof Enclosure
With a marine-grade fiberglass antenna and an outdoor UV stabilized plastic enclosure, the LINK is completely safe when exposed to the elements.

Aigean Wi-Fi Clients are used as the primary connection interface for communicating with external wireless networks. Our wireless clients are designed to improve signal strength and quality when connecting to marina, hotel, home, and business networks.


Interface

All of our wireless clients come standard with an extremely simple and elegant interface that makes it easy to connect and stay connected.

We understand that not every user is alike. While we have greatly simplified the networking capabilities and the interface that surrounds them, we do have advanced features for those who require them. Simply toggle the advanced setting, hit apply and have instant access to items like LAN, DHCP and Firewall settings. Yes, we have even included port forwarding and static lease support across your network.

The interface provides the user with granular control over all automatic behaviors so that your experience is finely tuned to your needs, unlike any other comparable products in the industry.

Performance Notice: Actual performance may vary. The standard transmission rates described are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors. Factors affecting signal strength and quality include local radio interference, obstacles impeding clear line-of-sight, antenna positioning, access point hardware/configuration, and atmospheric conditions, among many others.
Regulatory Compliance: Specified transmit power is the maximum output power the radio hardware is capable of. The device's firmware controls power limits based on established country-wide regulations to ensure safe and legal operation. All devices are defaulted by the factory to operate in the United States of America, following all applicable FCC rules & regulations.
