5 out of 5 eggsWorked as expected

Pros: Extremely easy to install. Packaging was done right. No blister pack garbage that rips your hands apart. Immediate increase in signal strength from my ASUS RT-N16 router and provided just the boost that I needed for my upstairs D-Link DIR-615 running DD-WRT to act as a proper repeater

Cons: The only con is the base price. I got these on sale for $7.99 a piece. Seeing as my ASUS RT-N16 needs 3 of them, buying them at the base price of $19.99 would be quite expensive. At $7.99 they are a great deal.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None really.

Cons: The antenna is nearly a foot long and is replacing 2 2dBi antennas on my TP-Link wireless card. These gave me half the signal strength and speed as the 2dBi! I don't know if the wireless card (which is also brand new) is giving them enough power to operate or what but for an 8dBi antenna that is 3x the size, shouldn't it give you better performance?

Other Thoughts: Talked to customer support TWICE and both times I got no helpful information on fixing it besides extremely basic stuff like "try pointing it at the router". I read other comments on this saying to not get it, but I thought my case would be different since I am only a couple rooms away from the router. It may work better on other devices but for a desktop wireless card, it worked terrible.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

One of the problems that you may be seeing as you have mentioned is the issue with not enough power to get a good signal from the antenna.

If you could give us some more information at howard.he@tp-link.com on the Adapter that you are using and average distance from the Router, then we can try to further trouble-shoot your issue.

We understand that you've tried to resolve this issue before and that you haven't had much luck.

As a worst case scenario we can go ahead and submit an RMA to replace the device if needed.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsWorked for me.

Pros: They actually worked for me. Now I can watch YouTube videos without the hassles of frequent cutoffs in my room.

Cons: One of them doesn't stay completely vertical at 90 degrees. Aesthetic issue.

Other Thoughts: Makes the router look like a professional piece of equipment. A good thing.

5 out of 5 eggsVastly improved connection strength and speed

Pros: The antennas improved my connection strength vastly. I can now pick signals from all of my neighbors . much higher throughput.

Cons: these antennas are large (If that is an issue for you)

Other Thoughts: Make sure to replace all your antennas. ( I had to replace all three on my wireless card)

1 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: None that I can see.

Cons: Really big, didn't improve my signal at all really, I had ordered this to replace a 4 or 5 DBI antenna.

Other Thoughts: Not worth $11 in my opinion

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review and we are sorry to see that you are not satisfied with this product.

It is important to replace all of the Antennas on your device with the same Antenna. If you have three antennas then replace all three.

There isn't any configuration that you can do with these and it is really just plug-and-play.

One suggestion may be to increase the TX/RX power on your device.

Let me know if you have any issues or concerns at howard.he@tp-link.com.

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsDIDNT Improve at ALL

Pros: It looks like it would give/receive a better signal.

Cons: This Antenna is about 3 times the size of my stock antenna, and doesnt even provide double the performance. Infact, I didnt even see a change in signal strength. It's a shame, I thought this would solve my problem, but I ended up wasting $10.

Other Thoughts: I am having bad luck..

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
The high gain antenna will propagate more signal horizontally. And if your router has more than 1 antenna, youd need to replace all antennas due to the MIMO technology.

If you need further info on boosting the WiFi signal, please feel free to let me know.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: I purchased two of these antennas so that I could upgrade my router and it greatly improved the range and speed of my old router.
Remember you have to change out ALL of the antennas on a router to reap the benefit of these higher gain antennas

Cons: Large, but I knew that when I purchased them.

2 out of 5 eggsLittle Difference Over Stock Antenna

Pros: It works. Good quality.

Cons: I see very little difference between this antenna and the stock antenna on my ENCORE ENHWI-3GN3 Wireless N150 Router / Repeater which I am using outdoors (under cover) as a repeater. It does make a difference in signal strength, but very little. I am not impressed with the repeater, so perhaps that is where most of the problem is.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,
We are happy to hear the adapter works on your router and sorry for the antenna not giving you expected range.
The high gain antenna requires it's in the same horizontal level as all your wireless clients.
If you place the antenna high, you cannot get the best range.

I hope the info help you and please feel free to drop me an email on this case @ howard.he@tp-link.com

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsuseless

Pros: none

Cons: ssid 3 says signal went from 38 to 50.

YES...it went in REVERSE!!!!

signal got worse not better.

i didnt even reboot and i put the old antennas on...BAM at 38.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,
We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
May I suggest you adjust the antenna angle?
For the high gain antenna, the wireless client should be in the same horizontal level as the antenna.
And if the wireless router has more than 1 antenna, we need to replace all antennas due to the MIMO technology.

If you need further info, please feel free to drop me an email.

3 out of 5 eggsHelps the 2.4 GHz, does not support 5 GHz

Pros: It does improve the range over stock antennas on the 2.4 GHz band. Not a lot, but noticeable.

Cons: The antennas clearly say they are for 2.4 GHz and they really are. If you use 5 GHz, look somewhere else. Strangely, these antennas work better for devices above it. I get a better signal upstairs 50 feet away than downstairs where the router is 50 feet away even though the signal has to go through more walls upstairs.

Other Thoughts: These are more suited for WiFi adapters on your computer and not for routers and access points.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Wade,
We're happy to hear the antenna boostes your 2.4GHz wireless network.

Yes, the antenna is 2.4GHz only.
It's also suitable for routers and APs with only 2.4GHz radio.

We really appreciate you taking the time to check out our TP-Link products and we hope that you will be able to check out more in the future.

Best Regards!
