What are best options for replacing GoFree WIFI-1

Navico/B&G has discontinued the GoFree wifi access point. What have people used for websocket connection and VentusPro?

(The Zeus3 hotspot works, but does not uniformly reach all spots on deck—and a J121 is not that big of a boat! Other stuff in the instrument cabinet may be creating interference or the cool-looking carbon fiber panel may be blocking some of the wifi signal.)

I run a Ubiquiti Bullet upstairs inside our pedestal.  Powered by PoE.  And a separate access point downstairs.  Different access point names and the Bullet passes through DHCP assignments etc.

On the 111 I got a reasonably industrial WiFi/mobile dual Sim router and mounted it in a safe place. It has ethernet to the H5000 and the Zeus3. It runs the DHCP and has a WIFI that reaches everywhere on the boat due to some good antennas and placement.
