  • Dont expect miracle range boost

    posted by pss2010 on 01/15/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day


    -Solid Metal
    -Good looking long antenna
    -Long power chord even if its USA pins
    I could bend them careful for AUS/NZ Socket


    -Didnt fit on one router a older wireless G syslink
    one.. the antenna where thicker screw design
    however it fit nicely the newer D-link dir-825
    -Although it added 1 bar to most things to
    what i was getting anyhow the samsung tv
    was getting a nice 4 bars other end of house
    and laptop windows 7 with 5 bars
    the cheap Chinese tablet with bad wifi antenna
    got a slight boost but was still only max 1-2
    bars where the laptop in same location was
    4 bars. now we are talking about 10-12 meters
    from antenna booster that passes through
    glass door and one brick wall and 2 plaster boards with wooden framing.
    outside ip camera about the same where also getting 4-5 bars and 30-43MB speed according to the router status. I think its done something


    Somehow I doubt it gives a 1000 meter range
    or more.. a lot depends also on the device antenna

    im also wondering if I needed 2 units since
    wireless N has 2 antennas where it matches
    the antennas for the way it does a speed boost
    over 54mbits
    its a shame the unit does have 2 antennas as well with 2 inputs???

    although a Samsung Tablet had 5 bars and said 72mbit speed 3-5 meters away in same room

    and my windows 7 laptop i7 HP probook said 5 bars
    with speed of 144mbit but i doubt it would get that
    would drop off under strain?


    Maybe worth buying a different router that
    offers 1000mw on 2 antennas but this
    seems good work around on a existing router
    but this seems to get a wee boost to signal strength
    and maybe a slight range gain on good antenna
    receiver gear. maybe ideal for a big paddock where
    your miles away might get 1-2 bars and maybe ip cameras around the property
    also replace the bottom antenna on router
    which got in way of usb socket and cables so
    some benefit there as well

    NOTE! I also disabled the dual band for 5ghz (dir-825) since wasnt sure if it work or cause damage when the unit
    only boosts 2.4ghz range. wasnt sure if it pass through the other freqs. which I doubt.
