5 out of 5 eggsGREAT!

Pros: This is a great antenna. I get reception in the basement from my WiFi router upstairs. The cable is long enough to allow versatile placement.

Cons: None that I can see.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Quality - Unimpressive Performance

Pros: The magnetic base with the extension cable is nice for positioning the antenna in a good location. All components seem to be high quality.

Cons: Improvement in signal over the stock router antenna is either non-existent or minimal.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this antenna to improve the wireless signal on my first floor (the router is located on the second floor). I took signal measurements with the stock D-Link wireless G router antenna then repeated with the Rosewill antenna. The signal strength was the exact same with both. I tried using the extension cable to better position the Rosewill but had the same results. Buy this for the flexible installation options or a nice stock replacement, not for signal improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect

Pros: HUGE! i got this as a replacement for my Linksys WMP54G Wireless PCI card as my antenna provided with it broke years ago using the extension and putting it on my desk my computer works like never before better then new

Cons: WAY too long to be connected to a Wifi card without the extension it is amost as long as my ATX mid tower business case.

Other Thoughts: This really works good when you are dealing with a junk wireless card like the one i have

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal!

Pros: Strong connection to my PS3 to stream x264 Blu-Rays. Solid signal compared to my stock mobo wireless adapter

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: The metal base is strong. If the antenna is connected to the base, be careful not to snap it. Also keep the magnet away from your hard drives!

5 out of 5 eggsCool

Pros: Really nice enhancement to my existing stock antenna. Full wireless connection on the PC and streams x264 Blu-Ray's to my PS3 much better than before

Cons: If you use the magnetic base and screw the antenna into that, it seems like you could easily snap it since the magnet is kinda strong.

Other Thoughts: Probably not a good idea to mount this on your tower since the magnet is strong...could mess up a hard drive I bet...

2 out of 5 eggsUgh

Pros: 3 foot cable with magnetic base works.

Cons: when to the will call center to pick it up. i inspected the product as soon as i got into my car. everything seemed to be in the case. as soon as i opened it i realized that it came with no antenna.

Other Thoughts: very disappointing. Rosewill seemed promising and now, well my trust for them dropped. Newegg's as well. seems to me newegg would try and inspect packages before releasing to customers but apparently not. had to use my regular wireless antenna with the base for now and well at least my internet is stable. going to contact newegg customer service tomorrow morning and see what i can do about the missing 8 dBi antenna.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Improvement

Pros: Magnetic base and the fact you can place the antenna away from the router

Cons: No Increase in signal strength

Other Thoughts: I was hoping to extend my wireless just a few more feet. I have a Dlink router which came with very small antenna. Absolutely no difference anywhere with these antenna. I should have known as I went through this a few years ago with a linksys and Hawking brand antenna. They made no difference either.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you very much for purchasing this unit. We strive to provide the most reliable and highest quality products to our customers. Try moving the antenna around to different spots to see if the range gets increased. If you are still having issues after that, please contact the Rosewill support team either via phone at 800-575-9885 or via email at techsupport@rosewill.com.
Thanks,
Rosewill Customer Care
