  • Summary: The product description is misleading. My router does not have an external antenna, therefore I can't use this booster. The description says that it can "be placed near the outside of your router's range to broadcast the signal even farther.

  • Summary: Fios wifi installed at one end of the house would not reach the other side. With the Amped the signal strength went up at the furthest point to 50/60 of 100. Even the porch increased to close to 80. Previously tried the new Apple airport to find out it made no difference at all.

  • Summary: I installed this hoping to get a stronger signal in some of the outlying areas of my lot. For instance, sitting in my driveway out front while the antenna sits at the back of the house and the signal has to go through a couple of walls and the garage.

Boosts signal but not as much as I need

  • Excerpt: I installed the antenna to try to get a signal into my camper trailer parked about 200ft from my home. I used the Amped app on my phone to check the signal...outside the camper it was 40% before the antenna, 70% after it was installed. However, I still can not get a signal inside the camper..
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast

  • Summary: After research, I tought I could avoid having to put another range extender access point by simply switching the antenna. $100 later and couple of hours' work later (router is up on a post), nothing changed.
