1 out of 5 eggs Signal Mover, Not Booster. Overpriced and mostly useless. 07/25/2013

This review is from: zBoost SOHO Dual Band Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home and Office (ZB545)

Pros: If you had 5 bars outside, but for some reason there was a dead zone in your house, this would bring the 5 bars inside to that area. That's how it works. Could be useful for a basement, or similar area where walls could block signal.

Cons: The coax cable included is cheap junk. Doesn't boost signal, it just "moves" it. Can't give you "more" bars than it receives outside. It's label of "booster" is very deceiving.

That said, I've tried dozens of configurations with better RG6, placement, etc., etc. and have never had any measurable success with this device.

It was for me a complete waste of money.

Other Thoughts: If you have 1 bar outside, you will get no more than 1 bar with this. If you have 3 bars, you don't get 4, or 5... just allows you to receive your 3 bars at the other end of the wire if you had a dead zone inside.

I've had this thing for a few years and tried it in

ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support

Pros: It fits in the PCI-E Slot...

No problems connecting and signal strength seems good.

Cons: Will not maintain connection speeds over 1Mbps for more than a minute. If I reset the connection, it jumps back up to 15Mbps but only briefly. All my other wireless devices work fine on the same network. My older b/g cards work faster than this. This card is junk.

Other Thoughts: I've tried all the different drivers I could find and all their settings, none fixed this issue. I've also tried a different PCI-E slot, no help there either.
