Good antenna, bad base – 2.4GHz 16dBi SMA Omni High Gain Antenna with Stand for WiFi/Wireless Network (2400~2500MHz) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Higher gain that with a stock antenna. - Good price - Easy to deploy
Cons:
- Not a big improvement from a 9 dBi antenna. - Base and cable increase signal loosing. - If your device is not heavy and you attach the antenna directly to your device, you will have a stability problem
Other:
Without using the base (that is, connecting directly to your device), gain is higher.
Bottomline:
There are cheaper antennas with lower gain but you will get the same effect. At this moment I'm using a 9dBi for my wifi router.
