Signal quality equal to the standard small antenna – 2.4GHz 7dB SMA Wifi/WLAN/Wireless Network Non-directional Antenna (Black) Reviews

Pros:
I monitored my router's signal quality report and found this antenna exactly equal to it's original antenna. It's three times larger but the quality is not better nor worse. So It's a good replacement antenna if the original is damaged, but won't improve your signal quality.
Cons:
The connector is hard to move and I had to rotate the all antenna to screw it in place. Not a big problem though. The signal, as said before, is not better nor worse then my router original smaller antenna, probably around 3-5db.
Other:
It's big, so if anyone experienced any signal improvement it's probably because it lifted the transmitter place a bit higher. For me, the signal quality was exactly the same as regular small antenna.
Bottomline:
good replacement if your original antenna is damaged. Expect the same signal quality as with your smaller antenna.
