Review: Rogue Wave by WaveWiFi (Mobile Router / Long Range WiFi)

rogue-wave-wave-wifi-router-extender-review

The Rogue Wave is a roof-mounted CPE that uses a Ubiquiti Bullet M2 as the underlying CPE hardware.

The Bullet is coupled with an 8.5 dbi omni antenna which is very capable, but you cannot leave it erected on the roof of an RV - it is too tall. But mounted to a batwing antenna it is easily cranked up for use and lowered for travel.

The supplied interior router is a consumer grade Netgear. It is not a cellular router - thus you cannot attach a cellular modem to it and use that modem as a source of Internet. If you have a cellular hotspot, though, the Bullet will pick up the wireless signal as an available Internet source.
