5 out of 5 eggsNice Improvement.

Pros: Easily replaces the wimpy antenna that was attached to my pci wireless card. Magnetic base offers intriguing configuration possibilities. Went from poor signal strength to good just like that. Im able to stream netflix with very good quality onto my 58" Panasonic plasma set. I'm very happy.

Cons: Not a problem with this product but I can't use my wireless keyboard/touchpad as it interferes with the wireless network card.

Other Thoughts: My router is on a different floor 30 feet away and there is a concrete wall between it and the new antenna. Still works great.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Improvement

Pros: Improved my connection and speed greatly . The cable length of about 54" was longer than the posted specs of 39.4".

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my HP p6610f desktop computer. The computer sits under my desk in an upstairs room over the garage. My router is located downstairs at the opposite end of the house. The HP has onboard wifi and came with an cheap antenna with a 39" cable. The best signal I could get with the HP antenna was 2/5 bars, with speedtest.net giving me a 3Mb/s download speed.

I just received this ZyXEL antenna today. Swapped it out, and couldn't be happier. First of all, the specs stated a cable length of 39.4". The length of my cable is about 54" which makes a big difference in my results. Since the cable is longer, I have more area to get a better signal. My signal has gone from 2/5 bars to 4/5 bars. The Speedtest.net test went from 3Mb/s to 16Mb/s download.

The cable length is somewhat key because if I place the antenna in locations that my HP antenna could only reach, this ZyXEL only gave me 2/5 bars, same as the HP's, but did improve Speedtest over 3 fold to 10 Mb/s.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Went from 24% to mid 90's absolutely worth every penny. It took the place of a 2 dbi Rosewill that came with the Rosewill wireless card. Cable is good quality and good length.

Cons: None received two days after I ordered

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Increased my connection strength significantly, not a bad price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Moved into a new house and my router was too far from the computer. I almost upgraded entirely to wireless-N but didn't want to spend the cash. Picked up this antenna and problem solved. Went from 1-2 bars to 3-4. Still haven't hit 5 bars though. The antenna sits on the desk and has just the right length of connection wire.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks . . . Well Built . . . Inexpensive

Pros: Did just what I wanted . . . went from 1 to 2 bars, poor to good, (using XP Wireless Network Connection Status) to 3 to 4 bars, good to very good. Wireless PCI Adapter is WPN311 RangeMax (Netgear). Simple to use . . . just screw off old short antenna and screw on. Moved it around until I found best signal. Base and antenna is approximately 9 1/2 inches tall . . . not 10 inches as noted elsewhere (not much difference but enough to mention).

Cons: Shipping was $7.70 for a large empty box . . . why would they do that? Item weights alot less than paid for shipping weight.

Other Thoughts: Magnetic based is strong . . . keep that in mind when mounting it (hard drives can be effected by magnetic fields).

4 out of 5 eggsGood Performance Booster

Pros: My new wireless PCI card had an external antenna that was getting too much interference from the CPU case and cables. My connection has been at max speed and rock solid since adding this antenna and placing it on a shelf above the case.

Cons: Could cost less, but that goes for anything...

Other Thoughts: If you need a simple antenna on an extension, this is it.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job

Pros: Cheap Solution-I now get 54 speed and a very good signal strength. I use to get 5.5-11 and poor connections.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I connected it to the wireless card in my pc and set the antenna outside of the enclosed desk the pc sits in. The cable is about 3ft long. It just works!!

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Purchased this with HAWKING HAC7SS 7-Foot Indoor Antenna Extension Cable and it gave one of my friends PC's in the basement GREAT signal strength.

Cons: Cable not long enough. I think its about 3ft

Other Thoughts: These desktop antennas are great but I wish it would come with a longer cable rather then me buying an extension cable.

All in all good product. I would recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: it got my antenna out from under the desk, and the magnet is really good for me as i have it stuck to the side of my fridge.

Cons: just wish the cable could be a bit longer, but I'll live.
