Wow... this antenna is huge! I am using this with a wifi IP camera. Seems to be working great... after a quick mod which is mentioned below in CONs. Base has a fairly strong magnet but this antenna is best mounted directly up or down. Mine is mounted on a the ceiling and hanging straight down... works great with no issues after fix.
Ok, the antenna seems to work great. I did not have very good results with original base and coax. I could not get the thing to work any better than a much smaller antenna. I suspect that the small coax in such a long length has pretty great loss at 2.4GHz. I shortened up the coax and re-soldered it to the base and WHA-LA... it works GREAT. Was an easy fix and now it is well worth the money.
Antenna works great by itself if you don't need the base. If you want a base to get antenna away from your device a few feet... just cut the coax and re-solder it with the length you need. Antenna seems to be well made, did not pull apart when pulled on.
A great product for the price, but I highly recommend you be ready to modify/shorten the coax length of the base if you will be using the base. Overall, a good product once it was modified for my use! This thing is long so don't be surprised when you get it!
