  • Great deception

    Pros:

    Since this product does not do its function (7 dB gain), it's hard to list some pros.
    The build quality seems good, and it works like a normal antenna (don't expect gains).

    Cons:

    I'm very disappointed, because I bought this antenna for signal gain in Wifi, and it simple doesn't do that. I changed my DLink router antenna for that one and the signal intensity didn't get better!!
    In addition, it's a very big antenna. It would be OK if it improved the signal, but that's not the case.
    So you have a lot bigger antenna that does exactly the same that a LOT MORE compact one. What's the point?
    Pluging this antenna in a Wifi PCI receiver did the same effect: NOTHING.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    So, if you want signal gain, don't buy this one. If you just want an antenna for your router or receiver, it's OK, but note that is a very big antenna.
