-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
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.
