Works properly with D-Link DIR-655 router without performance loss 01/07/2013
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.
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.
