2 out of 5 eggsLook else where

Pros: Sort of works.

Cons: It does no better than my stock omnidirectional antennas that my router came with. Also it has a 360 degree rotation, BUT because of the rotation design I could not twist it to the position I needed to point it, I had to turn the router slightly to get the antenna to point in the right direction. I would not recommend this antenna. Look else where for a better directional antenna.

Other Thoughts: I would have given it an egg and a half if I could. It does work just not any better than my oem antennas.

3 out of 5 eggsASUS WL-ANT157 5dBi/7dBi High Gain Dual-band Wireless Antenna

Pros: It works

Cons: I can not tell the performance difference. I have had the internet performance issues for years and I upgraded many routers. After I failed to improve the internet performance by investing in router hardware, I bought a Motorola cable modem to replace the ISP's modem. It resolved my performance issue. The modem upgrade made my home network performance matches or exceeds the ISP's provisioning and the performance is very stable. Comparing with ISP's modem, the download speed improved more than 50 folds and more than 100 times for upload speed.

Other Thoughts: If you have an internet performance issue, you might need to think out of the box. The problem might not be your router, cable wire, Ethernet NIC card, or your USB adapter. Check your Modem, etc...
