Customer Question

I have a steel hulled yacht with a mast top antenna. Before I lost the mast in a storm, I had this antenna connected to a D-Link DWL-2100AP, set as AP client, which was cable linked to a D-Link G700AP, set as access point. It worked beautifully, I would connect to the 2100AP and do a site survey, select the link that I wanted, set my network adapter back to back to finding an IP address automatically and I had a WiFi environment on board.
I lost the mast in a storm and the DWL-2100AP was damaged. When I went to replace it I was told that the product was discontinued and that I should buy a product called ZyXEL G-570S. I have never been able to get the system to work again after endless hours of effort until I am totally confused.
Does D-Link not have a product/solution that I can use that does not require me to be a geek to set it up?
Thanks.
