This SkyPro line of products is now replaced with the current WiFiRanger Converge products.
The SkyPro consists of a small weather-sealed box with dual stubby antennas (total height 8") on top.
The two antennas are what sets the SkyPro apart - enabling it to use MIMO technology to double Wi-Fi speeds under the right conditions.
And if you also want the convenience of integrated rooftop cellular, an integrated cellular modem is available for a $200 upgrade fee.
Launched in late 2019, the new WiFiRanger Converge Denali supersedes the SkyPro - but in a very different form factor.

In late 2019, WiFiRanger released their new Converge and Tetherpoint line-up - the Denali is the most equivalent in features to the SkyPro to consider.
The SkyPro is now retired (but may still be available pre-installed on some new RVs), and will supported long into the future for current customers for firmware updates and warranty repairs.
Other Models & Variations
- WiFiRanger Sky2 or the original WiFiRanger Sky - They look similar to the SkyPro, but have just a single antenna. The dual-antennas are a dead giveaway that you are looking at the "Pro" model.
- SkyPro LTE - WiFiRanger began offering an LTE option in 2017, and with the SkyPro3 in 2019 they began offering a more capable modem. More: WiFiRanger Introduces Cellular-Integrated SkyPro LTE and WiFiRanger Launches SkyPro3.
- Sky / SkyPro (OEM) - WiFiRanger also has slightly different models available that they sell directly to RV manufacturers for installation. These can vary in specifications based on what the manufacturer wants. They typically have names like Sky4 that don't match the two consumer accessible models (Sky2 and SkyPro). WiFiRanger does sell a LTE upgrade kit for those who receive the Sky4 or SkyPro pre-installed on their RV.

Routers can serve as a central conductor of your local area network in your RV and boat. Mobile routers are different from residential routers in that they typically support multiple internet sources like cellular and Wi-Fi, can be powered off of 12v or AC and support external antenna for better receiving signal.
But you might not need a router in your setup. Here's a quick video overview the variety that routers come in:
