Updated Review – Adjustable 2.4Ghz 3dBi Digital Antenna for Wifi Routers (800Mhz~2.5Ghz) Reviews

Pros:
Using NetStumbler to get a more reliable reading, here is what I found. With DD-WRT on an old WRT54G v2 using single antenna mode, I found that one of the two antennas I bought is defective. With no antenna attached at all, the signal/noise ratio was 40. With the default antenna, SNR is 58.

With the defective antenna, SNR is only 42.

With the working antenna, SNR is 70 - a definite improvement.

Also for reference, with an official Linksys HGA7T high gain antenna, SNR is 75.
Cons:
Not very good build quality.
Other:
I'm perplexed why I'm not able to get significantly increased range from higher gain antennas, like some others.
Bottomline:
Good replacement antenna, but don't expect too much of an improvement over the stock antennas.
