5 out of 5 eggsThey Work!

Pros: Work well with my Dir-655 router. Increased signal strength and throughput in my entire home.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I can't pick up local FM stations in my kitchen for some reason and wifi signal is a problem too. These antennas took my wifi signal from three bars to maxed out (5 bars) with no fluctuation.

4 out of 5 eggsRosewill 5 dbi 2.4 Ghz Indoor antenna

Pros: Price on sale is good. Has a very tight fitting connector, which I like. Antenna is built to last.

Cons: Quite a bit longer than your standard 2 dbi antenna, so be prepared.

Other Thoughts: Got these for use at work on wireless equipment. Works for that purpose. Just wish they weren't as long as they were, or the length should have been written in the description.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks properly with D-Link DIR-655 router without performance loss

Pros: First of all I was concerned if they would degrade the performance of the original antenna, that would be a waste of time and money. I am happy to report that they work properly with D-Link DIR-655 router without performance loss in my 2-story 3200-SqF house - a typical wood frame with drywall. I got three of them at 6 bucks each, and they slightly increase the signal strength a few dBs (from -85dBm to -81dBm). For me, the ROI is better than gambling to buy a new router that could cost $180 and cross your fingers and hope it is reliable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: With that said above, don't expect it perform miracle either. You may have a better chance to improve your wireless performance by tweaking your router such as using appropriate channels,
WPA2/AES-Only, firmware update, limiting to N-only broadcast and/or reducing the number of wireless devices.

2 out of 5 eggsNo difference in signal

Pros: Easily swaps with other antennas on rosewill wireless card

Cons: Did not boost signal, getting about the same signal strength

Other Thoughts: I bought this product because my internet kept cutting out every 45 minutes where I work, and I had to manually disconnect and reconnect to the network. Didn't really help with the problem at all. May need to just go for a better wireless card next time.

Manufacturer Response:

Thanks,

5 out of 5 eggsFine product

Pros: Works as expected.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Bought it to replace a wired antenna which came with Asus H67M-ITX/HT motherboard. I was building HTPC so I did not want to have a bunch of cables on a back of computer. This antenna does its job without any problems, the signal strength is 100% all around the house.
