Linksys Antenna – Linksys HGA7T 7dBi TNC Omni-directional Antennas with Holder (2400~2500MHz) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very easy to install. Just remove original Linksys antenna and plug this one. Item appears to be genuine item. Much cheaper than buying the same item in the retail channel. I was concerned about the size, but it is ok.
Cons:
Don't expect to have a very different result. Additional 5dBi of gain over the original antenna usually doesn't make a great amount of difference to reception. My expectation was bigger than the final result. Same range coverage maybe with a little difference.
Other:
The antennae holder seems superfluous. You don't need to use it.
Bottomline:
I don't recommend. Maybe you can buy because it is really cheap and you will have a very small difference in results.
