Nothing special – 2.4GHz 16dBi SMA Omni High Gain Antenna with Stand for WiFi/Wireless Network (2400~2500MHz) Reviews

Pros:
Maybe this is better for reception antenna connected directly to the PC than for transmission, connected to a router or access point.
Cons:
This antenna is no better than the original antenna of a router
Other:
I have a d-link 524 router and I bought this antenna to increase the signal range. In fact the signal was worse than the original antenna, and I used a specific software to measure signal strength and noise. I had no gain with this antenna and the signal was unstable.
Bottomline:
If you want to increase the wireless signal, try to take a wifi repeater. Antenna or an amplifier, amplifies the signal with the transmission noise.
