HAWKING HAI7SIP 2.4GHz Hi-Gain Omni-Directional 7dBi Antenna

1 out of 5 eggs Not worth it 01/17/2011

This review is from: HAWKING HAI7SIP 2.4GHz Hi-Gain Omni-Directional 7dBi Antenna

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: I have a weak wireless spot in my home where the signal fluctuates between 20% and 50% on average. It's just enough to cause problems browsing the internet and downloading anything (packet loss is too high), and gaming is impossible.

I bought this thinking it would give a modest boost to my signal in the back room and hopefully rectify some of my problems but..... this product simply doesn't work as advertised. When connected to a computer the signal from my router actually got worse (dropped from 55% with the 4 inch included antenna to 27% with the Hawking).

Other Thoughts: Spend a few extra bucks on a signal booster or repeater, you will have much better results.
