Free WiFi

Beacon Wifi Welcome to the Beacon NextGen Wireless system, which allows you to easily and securely register each of your devices for use. 
The first time each device is connected to the network, a registration page will load, either after a browser is launched or automatically, depending on your device settings.  A 10 digit Voucher will be requested and once successfully entered, that device will be registered. Your device will automatically be connected each time afterwards, with no login/registration page.  Security and authentication will verify your device each time, but this happens in the background requiring no interaction from the user.  Each 10 digit Voucher allows use for a specified period of time and after that time has expired a new 10 digit Voucher will be required.

Getting Started:


1) Obtain a 10 Digit Voucher from the marina office
2) Turn on Wi-Fi and connect to the Beacon wireless signal at your location
3) If you have the “auto login” setting selected on your device, a login/registration page will load.  If you do not have the “auto login” setting selected, launch any browser and a login/registration page will load.  Depending on your device (phone, tablet, laptop) a custom-sized page will load.
4) Where it asks “have a Voucher?” select the corresponding tab and enter your 10 digit Voucher, with or without a dash in the middle and select “use Voucher”
5) Once you are redirected to the Internet your device is registered and ready for use!
6) If you have technical issues regarding the network please call 888.852.0611.  The support staff is available Mon-Fri, 9:00am-10:00pm and Sat-Sun, 9:00 am-6:00 pm est.
7) Please email us with any questions at: support@beaconwifi.com



Quick Tips:


• If a connection is not being established, it always helps to turn the Wi-Fi off and then on.
• If you have a mobile device, it likes to load the login/registration page for you so allow a couple of seconds for it to operate the process.  Make sure your “Auto Login” settings are turned on.
• Establishing a wireless connection while in the cabin of your boat with a mobile device may be difficult.  Mobile devices have about 30% of the wireless performance of laptops, due to lower-powered Wi-Fi modems and smaller antennae.  Mobile device have a more difficult time returning the signal back to the antenna, lowering the link quality.  SMART TVs in the cabin of your boat have a less than 25% chance of a solid connection.
• Your location has a bandwidth maximum per device to increase the amount of connections while sharing the incoming broadband.  This is not a guaranteed speed, but a maximum speed if the bandwidth is available
• If you are utilizing a Microsoft operating system no longer supported by Microsoft (Windows 95, XP or Vista) you may have to download Firefox or Chrome as a browser in order to register.
