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.

We love the WirieAP; we have been able to access internet even as we’ve sailed along remote coasts from Mexico to Central America, allowing us to let family and friends know that all is well, as well as communicate with distant marinas or services in advance of arrivals. It makes anchoring out an option way more often. I’m about to return to Los Angeles to produce a first year drama series for CBS and I was able to staff my dept. and communicate with the studio and network while sailing in Panam…

I bought one of the first Wiries from you, the one that you took off Irie because I wanted a blue one. Still works perfectly!Note: Purchased 2009

We just wanted to thank you for all your help in setting up the Wirie on our computer over the phone. It works!!!! We got into Bimini late yesterday afternoon and the first thing my husband did after giving thanks we made it past the shoals, coral reefs and other hazards to navigation – all unmarked! – is to hook up the Wirie to see if it worked. TADAH! We’re online.

Just received my unit yesterday and have already fallen in love with it! I could seldom get emails at my boat slip previously, but I was streaming a Netflix movie flawlessly once set up with The WirieAP.
SV Endless SummerThe WirieAP
I just want to tell you that the antenna [The Wirie] is excellent. We are in Virgin Gorda and we can choose among a lot of free networks and it stays on and is very stable. We listen to Danish radio all day in our anchorage. Thank you for your service, we really appreciate it.
