Not such a good antenna – 2.4GHz 100W 18dBi Directional High Gain 18-Unit Antenna for Wifi/Wireless Network (RP-SMA) Reviews

Pros:
It gives a good signal when it is pointed perfectly right at the AP.
Cons:
I tested it with the signalking 3600000N. But it was not good. You had to point it perfectly right at the source. The smallest difference caused the signal to drop away. And once I had a good signal, the signal was as strong as the signal received by the Alfa rabbit 6000 mW. Maybe usefull for a fixed installation, but not to change Acces Points and locations frequently. I would take the panel antenna instead. The signal improvement was about the same, but it is much more easy to setup. If the panel antenna is pointed more or less in the correct direction, it is already enough.
Other:
Bottomline:
Dont buy unless you have a fixed access point on a fixed installation
