OK for me – Wi-Fi Antenna RP-SMA M-F RG178 Hign Frequence Extension Cable (10M-Length) Reviews

Pros:
10 meters of RG-174 with male and female connectors at the ends. Build quality is good.
Cons:
at WiFi frequencies (2.4 GHz), a 10 meter length of RG-174 cable will introduce severe losses.
Other:
low-loss cable at 2.4 GHz is prohibitively expensive. 10 meters of RG-174 plus two connectors is good enough value at this price, even if you just hack off a meter from both ends and use the remaining RG-174 for other purposes.
Bottomline:
No complaints. If you are stuck somewhere where your only option is no signal from a short but low-loss cable versus at least a weak signal from a very long but lossy cable, this might just be enough to keep you connected online.
