Purchased these to try and increase the range of my asus rt-ac66u. These make a negligible difference in range. I figured it wouldn't work wonders but was pretty disappointed at the ineffectiveness. You are better off buying a cheaper router, putting ddwrt on it and using it as a repeater/bridge(it will increase latency though)

I wanted just a bit better 5 Ghz range from an Asus RT-AC66U, router, hoping to boost signal at 10 metres. Replacing one antenae with this one made no measurable difference. In fact it just reduced my 2.5 Ghz range.

I removed it.

Huge Coverage Improvement for RT-AC66U Router Dec 19 2012
By R. Livingston - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had several weak signal areas in my house, primarily in the finished basement and room over garage so I replaced the middle antenna on my Asus RT-AC66U router with this directional antenna. The router/AP is located in my home office on the first floor at one end of my house, so this directional antenna works well in my application. The signal strength, noise ratio, and throughput improved significantly for both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands.

Bought 3 of them May 30 2013
By Brandon Keo - Published on Amazon.com
Well you can call me stupid but what i did was buy 3 of them, they had them at best buy for a little while, idk if they still have them but they were on sale for like $15 each. I aimed middle one across the house, one aimed towards basement and the last one aimed upstairs. No matter where i go in the house i always have full bars of wifi. In the basement the connection used to drop all the time, with this thing i have full signal. upstairs i only had 2 bars, now i have 5/5 bars!!! I cannot stress how good this thing is.

Works, and that is all that matters Oct. 28 2013
By Gary U - Published on Amazon.com

I bought one of these at the same time as a new set of high gain antennas for my Asus NT-66U. The other antennas had no effect, pleasantly this antenna did make a difference. I returned the others and kept this one, recommended.

Increase wireless coverage, but NOT with this - let me explain July 4 2015
By Nobody - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In past few months I've tried several products in order to solve wireless coverage problem. It's highly likely you are looking at this page and asking yourself: should I get this or maybe some other advertised antennas? Like this 9 dBi:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DMJI9TA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00DMJI9TA&linkCode=as2&tag=codeproject-20&linkId=IOBXQKBKD3N2DRE3

ASUS antenna is 5 dBi / 7 dBi... other product is 3 antennas with 9 dBi. Surely that's better? But other product has lower review rating, and most reviews are not detailed - one liners with - this works great, this doesn't work. What to do, oh what to do?

Well, here is how you should decide:
1. You need to understand that this ASUS antenna is directional. Meaning, it'll work great in scenarios where you need to boost coverage in CERTAIN area. BUT, that certain area can't be behind like 3-4 walls. It also depends on what material was used for building walls we are talking about. This is why some people report that antenna is great, and some are having problems.

2. Products like 9 dBi antenna that I've linked are good in scenarios where you need to boost existing coverage in ALL directions. However, considering layout of most houses, you are quite likely having trouble in one area - you wouldn't benefit from small increase of your existing wireless coverage. Meaning, if you already have signal in certain area, but it's 50% and you would want it to be 100% - it's quite likely those 9dBi antennas would help you.

HOWEVER, what I found in practice is that for MOST people NEITHER antenna is good enough. The area where they want WiFi has like -70 dBi signal strenght and they want it to be -15 dBi. So, instead of spending $20+ on antenna, you should buy Wireless extender like NETGEAR EX6100 AC750:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00HHRP11C/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=codeproject-20&linkId=VE2G4KUT5UZFBFOH

Now, Wireless Extenders have a bad name because people don't understand a simple fact about them: they SPLIT the band. One half of traffic goes on communication to router and one half of traffic goes on communication to connected devices. HOWEVER, this is easily solvable, let me elaborate:

1. Most important - you need QUALITY extender. This is why I linked NETGEAR EX6100 AC750. AC750 protocol (theoretically) supports speeds up to 750 MBit on both 2.4 & 5 GHz ranges. You have N150 extenders for $20 dollars, like NETGEAR WN1000RP N150 for example:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008GGB342/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B008GGB342&linkCode=as2&tag=codeproject-20&linkId=JOSRT4S44J4PBUNL

But with extender like that you only have 2.4 GHz range. 150 Mbit is theoretical speed, so likely you are looking at 75 Mbit. That's split - so in the end it's highly likely that in BEST CASE SCENARIO you'll end up with 30 Mbit link on your connected device (~3MB/s).

So, what you should do is buy REFURBISHED NETGEAR EX6100 AC750 for just $40. Devices like this are highly unlikely to malfunction - because of low heat generation and no mechanical parts. If they work within 90 days (refurbished guarantee period)... it's highly likely they'll work for years without problems.

2. Now, when you have quality extender like EX6100, what you can do is use one band (5 GHz) to communicate with router and other band (2.4 GHz) to communicate with devices. Netgear calls this "FastLane Technology" and you can use either band in this mode - if you have newer devices, use 2.4 GHz for router communication; this will probably allow you to place extender further away from router. And then, near extender, WiFi devices on 5 GHz will work great.

3. Finally, EX6100 supports AP mode in which you connect it to router with LAN cable. If you don't mind the work that comes with laying out LAN cable, this mode will give you MAX possible speeds on both 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz. This is how professional WiFi networks are built. Whenever you need to expand WiFi coverage, you just connect more extenders with LAN cables, setup extender to clone SSID and WiFi password - job done.

This is shaping up to be pretty lengthy review. So, instead of me keeping on with the babbling, let's stop here and if you have specific questions feel free to post comment. I'll try to come back with a good answer. And, if this review helped you, I would appreciate marking it as helpful. Good luck with increasing your WiFi coverage! ;)

I can now connect wirelessly from 3 homes away Feb. 28 2013
By Orionsnet - Published on Amazon.com

I live in a condo building and everyone has their own wireless network. I saw like 12 of them in my hallway. This extended the range from within my condo down to the end of my hall past 6 other condos and all the other wireless networks. I did have to point my antenna in that direction though.
