3 out of 5 eggsNot a review, just some FYI!

Pros: See 'other thoughts'

Cons: See 'other thoughts'

Other Thoughts: To those who are purchasing this in hopes of getting super range, such as for long range mobile internet usage, please take note. This extends the downstream range of your network (from the router to your wifi card). It does NOT extend your upstream range (from your wifi card to your router). So your true roaming range will NOT be increased, if your lacking that needed 'omph' from your wifi card to your router. Just a friendly FYI! :)

5 out of 5 eggsDecorative boost that Works

Pros: On the list of antennas that work, you'll find this one.
It outperforms its price point.
It looks nice, but its not as strong as the more-expensive and homely white corner reflect gutter looking thing; however, if you don't want to look at a huge thing like that, then get this cute little antenna here.

Pretty--in a tasteful approach tha blends in to a desktop computing environment without visual distraction.

Works--in that you get a +5 boost plus a cleaner signal.

Famous--in that this model is listed as a solution product, giving better results than the antenna that's down behind your computer right now.

Cons: The boost is 5db plus the natural noise cleanup of a directional antenna; however, the advertisement leads one to believe that you'll have a zillion "bars" strong signal, when the product is more of a clean signal device than a booster. Not really a con.

The design is slightly compromised by its decorative nature, but no more so than other mini panels (same type product). However, the price is almost enough for a larger and stronger 90 degree antenna that's not as decorative. Okay, that's not really a con either. This thing is cute and it works--for when both of those aspects matter.

Other Thoughts: Need to point the brand name on the big flat surface towards the wireless router--don't point the skinny side at the wireless router. lol! "Directional," get it? This is beneficial.

It has a cord, which means that its made for PC desktop antenna. In this job, it has the bases covered as convenient (because it works) and pretty (because that can matter).

4 out of 5 eggsWorks very well if used correctly.

Pros: Works great. I had this thing extend my network range to about 1000 feet from the AP with line of sight. Without line of sight, such as through walls in my house, I had a signal improvement of about 200%. 200% being double the network strength shown.

Cons: Very fragile. The MC connector broke 2 days ago when I cleaning around the AP. I suspect it was my father who was curious on how it worked, but he wont say anything. It still works however with half of the connector, but I'm looking for an RMA ASAP.

Other Thoughts: You have to understand how this antennae works for it to be of benifit to you. If you want a 360* blanket, then it wont work. But if you want to hit a dead spot in your house or extend your range to another AP.. then get this.

I have this mounted high on a wall in my room which is at the end of the house. The antennae is pointed towards the rest of the house so it picks up all signals in that direction.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for me

Pros: I am using this with a Proxim Orinoco gold card. It is connecting to a 3com wap approximately 600 feet away in another building. In between the buildings there are several obstructions to line of sight including two very large trees, a shed, and two large metal trailers. The proxim card alone does not connect and I've tried hanging usb adapters out the window without success. After plugging this antenna into the orinoco card, my connection is stable. It is still slow as I am on the limit of the signal, but at least I can surf during the down time.

Cons: None for me.

2 out of 5 eggsNo better, No worse. I suggest the Omni.

Comments: After connecting this "9 dBi" antenna to two different Buffalo cards, one PCI and one PCMCIA, I have concluded the signal improvement is no better but no worse than without it. Also, the omni-directional "2 dBi" actually seems to have a little better range, even in point to point scenarios. Really too bad, I was excited. On a positive note, NEWEGG IS THE BEST! Here in less than 24 hours!
