When I further compared this device to the Super Cantenna (rated at 12dbi) WIRELESS GARDEN SCB03 Cantenna Wireless Network Booster, this antenna clearly performs better. However, when this antenna is compared to the Hawking HAI17MD Hawking HiGain Directional Antenna, mini indoor, 7dBi - HAI7MD, the difference is minimal. Pairing this antenna with a Hawking HSB2 Hawking HiGain Signal Booster version 2 - HSB2, I was able to receive 100% signal which surprisingly even outperformed our commercial grade D-Link 7700AP access point (the D-Link typically provided about 70-75% signal without any enhancements or boosters).
All in all, a cheap antenna that does work (although perhaps not as well as one would expect from something with 14db gain) but requires exact placement and a booster to really make it shine.
Note: You may need additional cables/connectors to hook this antenna up to your network. You will probably need at least an N-Type male to Reverse SMA Female connector (which you can get from the Trendnet Outdoor Arrestor Kit) TRENDnet Outdoor Arrestor Kit (Includes Reverse SMA to N-Type Converter) and if necessary, an antenna extension cable TRENDnet N-Type to N-Type Cable / 6M (19.7t.) or LMR400 N-type cable equivalent (try eBay).
I felt an especially strong urge to write a review for this product because the only other review was so inaccurate. The reviewer gave it one star because it did not improve signal strength at a distance of 30 feet on a laptop. I wouldn't expect it to as laptops generally have very good antennas in the first place. If you can not get full signal strength at 30 feet with the stock antenna then there is something wrong with your router or computer. A larger antenna isn't going to fix your broken hardware. You don't have to take my word for it though. There are reviews for this product on other sites such as newegg that I would encourage you to look at before buying.
wireless connectivity. Things to be aware of: Remember that every time a wiresless link is ADDED to a network, throughput it HALFED. Also, make sure to know what type of connection is on your access point or router. You might need an adapter. Make sure that you purchase a cable to run to your router as the attached cable is only 12 inches long. Seems well weatherproofed and functions perfectly. I *HIGHLY* recommend this product.
