Works just like an antenna

L A., Newegg
1 June 2014
  • Summary: The motherboard in my mid-tower has WiFi built into it and connectors for two antennae on the backplate. The dual antenna that came with the motherboard was some kind of cheap folding dipole thing, so I wanted to replace it. Having these two nice lookin' antennae attached directly to the backplate is so much better than a dipole antenna magnetized to the outside of the computer case.
  • Pros: Bought two antennae, plugged them directly into the two connectors on the backplate to my mid-tower. My Windows 7 computer liked its new antennae so much that it started ignoring my CAT5 cable and connected to the internet via WiFi! Sheesh! Computers these days will chase after any new equipment that catches their eye! By the way, I didn't detect that change for a couple of days and my internet services seemed to perform at just as high a level as my CAT5 cable connec...
  • Cons: After my Windows 7 computer found the new antennae, I couldn't convince it to prefer its old CAT5 cable connection. After hours of attempting to prioritize it to favor the cable connection over the WiFi connection, I found that Windows 7 refuses to ignore WiFi as its primary connection. I finally disabled the WiFi in order to get Windows 7 to finally connect to use the cable connection. Not the antenna's fault, they can't help it if they're pretty! Zero Eggs deducted.

Guess it somewhat worked

  • Summary: My desktop is only getting me 1/3 internet speed when compared to laptop in the same room. I was hoping this antennas will solve the problem and it slightly improved my internet speed. However, the overall performance gain wasn't enough to make me think my $16 (since I bought two of them) was well spend. If you are getting these for your wireless adapter, you might as well spent little more money and get a new adapter instead.
  • Pros: - Slightly improved my internet speed
  • Cons: - Performance gain doesn't justify its price tag

not bad

  • Summary: honestly expected much better than this and things like this should probably be sold in 2 packs aswell now for wireless n
  • Pros: did increase signal strength.(by a very small margin)
  • Cons: wish these were cheaper the ones that came with my wireless card were half the size and perform within 3% and they are only 2dbi. these are 5dbi so thick at the bottom that they touch and can only be bent at certain angles or they hit each other allowing no more movement

Didn't my improve signal at all.

Ryan H., Newegg
15 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased 3 to replace the 3 x 3 dBi antennas that came on my TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Wireless N Gigabit Router but the signal did not improve. It even went down a little according to wifi analyzer on android and my wifi icon on my laptop lost a bar. I gave it 2 eggs because I have had great success with TP-Link equipment but these just didn't do anything for me. Other reviews show that they do work, just not in my case.
  • Pros: Great price.
  • Cons: Did not improve my signal at all. If anything it made the signal slightly worse. I am not even sure how that is possible because they are 2 dBi stronger than the factory ones they replaced.

Does it job

Tamar D., Newegg

  • Summary: Buy a network Wifi Repeater instead.
  • Pros: It works as directed. The antenna works fine just gets equivalent reception to the one I previously used.
  • Cons: My signal did not improve compared to the smaller antenna that came with my PCMCIA WIFI card.

Pretty good

Mauriene U., Newegg
11 September 2011
  • Summary: It's a pretty good deal for the price and it gives a full signal. Changed my router's 4dbi antenna to this one which is 5dbi, and it dramatically increased my $20 router's performance.
  • Pros: *Cheap *Keeps my signal full *Long distance
  • Cons: *It's big, but not really a con.
