HASH(0xa5929fd8) out of 5 stars Works but is VERY directional July 31 2008
By J. Wu - Published on
I recently purchased this to increase the wireless signal within a 2-story building that has numerous walls in between the modem on the second floor and the computers on the first floor. With this antenna, I'm able to boost the wireless signal from about 50% to about 65% as long as the antenna is pointed at exactly the right location. A few degrees up/down/left/right will tend to decrease the amount of signal by a few percent.

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).

HASH(0xa592da74) out of 5 stars Great product, quality design and materials Dec 22 2010

This is a quality product that works as advertised. The antenna is made from quality materials and the removable base is constructed with strong magnets and solid mounting holes. The base is also relatively heavy so it will not tip over if it is not mounted using the magnets or with screws. The antenna rotates and bends at the base so you can adjust it to any direction to maximize signal strength. I installed this on a home theater PC in an upstairs bedroom relatively far away from the router. I then tested the connection speed using an online speed test with the stock antenna and with the new antenna. I was able to get about double the download speed with the new antenna.

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.

HASH(0xa592dea0) out of 5 stars Outstanding performance. April 14 2010

Simple to install, and perfect for the job. I have been using several of these in corporate environments to push long distances for
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.

HASH(0xa592deb8) out of 5 stars Works great April 4 2009

Shooting signal across about 175 yards from one home to another. 2 Linksys wrt54g's on each end (the receiving side is in bridged mode), and the trendnet outdoor antenna on the sending side. Enough signal strength to provide signal inside the home. I may need another access point, because in bridged mode the receiving side only picks up signal, and does not send it through the home. But I have the wired cat 5 directly to this pc that i'm using right now.

HASH(0xa592dedc) out of 5 stars Great antenna! Feb. 8 2009
By K. Sumners - Published on

We spend the winter in an RV park in Mexico and as the wireless internet antenna is at the office on the other side of the park with many RVs in between, we've had pretty poor reception. This year we took TrendNet's antenna with us and our reception has been great! We mounted it on a pole with direct line of sight. When we leave, we'll leave the pole for next year but take the antenna with us to use other places. It improved our signal just setting it up directly on top of the RV. It was a great investment!
