The WirieEx in action

The Wirie Ex

The WirieEx performs the functions of both a wireless bridge and a WiFi repeater to allow additional coverage areas for The WirieAP+/pro local WiFi network on larger yachts, as well as provide the ability to connect hard-wired Ethernet devices to The WirieAP+/pro local network.

Extended WiFi

Increase the coverage area for your local Wirie WiFi network. Good for larger vessels.

Ethernet Support

Connect Ethernet devices to your local Wirie WiFi network.


1 year warranty. Free firmware updates. Unlimited support.




- The WirieEx will repeat the WiFi signal from The WirieAP+/pro so you can provide additional coverage on larger yachts. On yachts longer then 50', we recommend the use of a Wirie Extender to assure good coverage everywhere below decks.

- Computers and devices used onboard will automatically "roam" between the WiFi networks based on signal strength. As you move around the vessel, the devices will automatically switch to the stronger signal.

- The WirieEx is small (6" x 1.5") so it can be mounted in tight spaces and away from view.

- The WirieEx is powered by a 12-24V power source. A short power pigtail is provided, additional DC cable (not included) is required for installation.

- The WirieEx provides an Ethernet port to connect hard-wired Ethernet devices. If needed, a network switch can be connected to provide multiple Ethernet ports.

- If desired, multiple WirieEx products can be installed and configured for very large vessels.

- There is no software to install. A 100% web-based User Interface gives you access to all functionality of The WirieEx from any WiFi enabled device, including your iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

- The WirieEx can be upgraded over time when new firmware updates become available. These are provided free of charge and are available for download in our support section.

- Requires DC electrical cable, 1A fuse, and optional switch to power on/off.

If anybody asks, The Wirie works perfect for us here in Horta in the Azores.
S/V SampoThe Wirie
I LOVE my Wirie. It has been great. I have managed to pick up signals everywhere we have been. In St. Lucia at the Pitons I had no problem, in Bequia, I got a signal from onshore, and here (Grenada) I have one also! Just awesome!
S/V Southern ComfortThe Wirie
Thank you for the WiFi antenna [The Wirie]. It is excellent. We have had good reception ever since we fitted it.
S/V Dream or TwoThe Wirie
We received our Wirie AP+ a couple of weeks ago & finally installed it yesterday. Wow! How easy was that! And it worked straightaway as well. We really are looking forward to getting way better internet access – as you already know, it can be such a pain for cruisers.

As we speak I am at anchor outside St. John’s. Superb product. I have a friend who is going to email you about one as I have been talking to him on Skype and he could not believe it.
