Great deception – 2.4GHz 7dB SMA Wifi/WLAN/Wireless Network Non-directional Antenna (Black) Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
