Great range, aggressive appearance

Mike S., Newegg
18 May 2011
  • Summary: Line-of-sight is very important with these, make sure your poles are long enough!
  • Pros: My office had a need to extend WiFi coverage to our vehicle service shop, for our data-intensive fleet management software. Nothing else I tried (range extenders, smaller antennas, etc.) could cut it. But with five of these antennas (3 connected to an Asus RT-N16 router running DD-WRT firmware, a...
  • Cons: Lightning arrester is difficult to install. Would be helpful if it could be attached directly to the base of the antenna, then to a grounding pole, but because of the antenna's design, with the silver "pole" that holds the antenna base covering the connection, the lightning arrester has to be ins...

Mounting Placement is Key

  • Summary: The antenna works best with line of sight and mounted high up in the air. I have it mounted on the roof, on a mast about 15 feet up, and just a few feet higher than the actual roof. I live in a dense area (trees, houses). Total height is about 35feet high.
  • Pros: First of all, this antenna comes with all of the required connectors for Linksys WRT model routers. It included a lightening arrestor, HAWKING HACST TNC to RP-SMA Connector Adapter (which costs big bucks by its self), and mounting hardware. DLink owners should note that DLink style routers use RP...
  • Cons: I also purchased a HAWKING HACST TNC to RP-SMA Connector Adapter because I thought this kit didn't have one in it. I could have saved a few bucks there, but I'm sure it will come in handy anyway. You will need to get creative with your mounting to get the most out of this antenna. A 1,000mW (1wat...

  • Summary: I use 4 of these connected to Linksys WRT54GL routers loaded with DD-WRT in WDS mode. They are mounted to rooftops and serve 200 people in condos and have over a half a mile in range. For the price these are nice kits and make it quite easy
  • Pros: Includes everything you need to create an outside access point. Lightning arrestor, and pigtails for both Linksys and Buffalo routers plus mounting kit for walls and poles.
  • Cons: Absolutely none. Fantastic product

Nice

  • Summary: This antenna is almost 3 feet long.
  • Pros: These high gain antenna's really show some power. The 360 degree's helps cover most of the places in buildings. Very effective. Mounting is easy too.
  • Cons: You might need to buy the N- extension cable.
