The TL-ANT2408CL 8dBi indoor omni-directional antenna is ideal for upgrading the wireless performance of your wireless access points/routers. It is very easy to use, no configuration or software installation required.

Compliant with 802.11n/b/g (2.4GHz), the TL-ANT2408CL will significantly increase the range and strength of your Wi-Fi signal. This quality built omni-directional antenna is a direct replacement for the antenna that comes standard with your router, access point. Because it is omni-directional, no aiming is required - it can send and receive Wi-Fi in all directions.

  • newegg Compliant with 802.11n/b/g (2.4GHz) Compliant with 802.11n/b/g, the TL-ANT2408CL 8dBi antenna operates in the 2.4-2.5 GHz band and provides 8dBi omni-directional operation, which largely extends the wireless range and delivers much better wireless performance.
  • newegg Wide compatibility The antenna offers the RP-SMA Male (Plug) connector guaranteeing wider compatibility with most of the wireless equipments.
  • newegg Easy To Use Installation is very easy - just detach your device's factory antenna and attach our booster antenna and you'll experience an instant increase in signal coverage and stability. (Please note that the increase in signal strength depends mostly on your router or adapter; upgrading the antennas helps but the signal cannot transmit or receive at a level that your modem or adapter does not have.)

4 out of 5 eggsWell made

Pros: Excellent build quality! Way better than the cheap Super Power Supply antennas, straight and sturdy

Cons: No signal improvement compared to the stock antennas on (my now longer working) Netgear R7000.

Other Thoughts: These antennas look cool! But other than that no actual benefit when it comes to wireless range. Purchased mostly for the looks.

4 out of 5 eggsLong, high gain antenna

Pros: -Works at least as well as the 5 db antenna I was using before, if not better
-Simple to use--just screw it onto your existing wireless card/router
-Reliable

Cons: -Does not provide a huge jump in signal strength (no clear advantage over 5 db antennae)
-Rather long, so sticks out
-No major signal fluctuation (very stable connection).

Other Thoughts: This antenna works for me. I have it attached to an old wireless G card (no N or AC here). I had cannibalized a 5 db antenna from another newer card, which was good, but wanted a stronger signal since my router is at the opposite end of the house. If you're coming from one of the stubby little 3 inch antennae, this will be an improvement. If you already have a 5-6 inch antenna, this may not get you much more signal.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent After Market Antenna

Pros: This is an excellent after market antenna for boosting ranges on almost anything wireless.

Cons: A little large but it definitely gets the job done.

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.
My email is: howard.he@tp-link.com

Best Regards!

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.
