Product Description

What This Product Does

Indoor omni-directional antenna TL-ANT2408CL operates in the 2.4-2.5 GHz band and provides 8dBi omni-directional operation, which largely extends the wireless range and delivers much better wireless performance. The antenna offers the RP-SMA Female connector guaranteeing wider compatibility with most of the wireless equipment’s.

Replacing your Wi-Fi antenna with TL-ANT2408CL will significantly increase the range and strength of your Wi-Fi signal. This quality built omni-directional antenna is a direct replacement for the antenna that comes standard with your router, access point. Because it is omni-directional, no aiming is required - it can send and receive Wi-Fi in all directions.

Easy To Use

Installation is very easy - just detach your device's factory antenna and attach our booster antenna and you'll experience an instant increase in signal coverage and stability. Please note that the increase in signal strength depends mostly on your router or adapter; upgrading the antennas helps but the signal cannot transmit or receive at a level that your modem or adapter does not have.

Features

∙ Compliant with 802.11n/b/g (2.4GHz)

∙ 8dBi signal gain

∙ RP-SMA Female connector

I think it best to start this review by mentioning what these aerials are not for; specifically, these aerials will not magically boost the range of your network, so if you're having trouble getting a usable wireless connection in a large property or with an awkwardly located router, then I'm afraid these aren't going to help you. Anyone in such a situation may experience a small boost at best with these aerials, and only if both devices (wireless access point and wireless client) are able to fit these external aerials, you are much better off looking into moving your wireless router to a more central location, or investigating a wireless bridge or a repeater (both will likely require your existing router to support WDS!).

What these aerials are good for however is boosting the performance of an existing, stable wireless connection, which is what they've done for me. I was in a situation where my wireless performance fluctuates a bit, largely because of interference from neighbouring houses, so while it gave great performance during the day, this would drop off in the evenings and slow my ability to connect to the internet considerably. After fitting six of these aerials, probably a bit overkill with three on the router and three on the client, I now get better speed at all times of the day. The aerials are 29cm long, but should fit onto most wireless devices with external aerials; remember to spread them so they're not all pointing in the same direction, as this gives the best signal.

So, at £4.15 a pop these are a good way to replace external aerials on devices that may ship with somewhat cheap, dinky aerials. In my case I had a

I have my computer set up in a corner of my house that is relatively distant from my router. I was getting speeds of around 20 Mbps using the stock antennae on my wireless card, with 2 bars of signal. Seeing as I got 40 Mbps and a much better signal on my laptop, I decided it would be worth trying to boost the signal to my PC. After installing two of these to my PC (which took less than a minute) I am pleased to report that my download speeds immediately shot up to 40 Mbps and my signal to 4 bars. In short, this antenna is a vast improvement on the stock TP-Link antennae and is easily worth a purchase if your WiFi signal is on the weak side.

tl;dr: buy this antenna; it's great.

First thing to remember is that wireless is always environmental. Conditions change in every house/office.

Got 3 of these aerials on a TP-Link WA901ND Access point.
I got the best results having the middle aerial straight up, and the far left at 45degrees and the far right at 45degrees \|/. This increased the quality of signal but not range of signal. The people on the end on the reception radius, now get better speed and signal strength.

Physically these are big and chunky. If you fan out the aerials like: \|/ It's almost 2ft wide..

These aerials should come with the router by default, they do help the signal quality to an extent and while they won`t be a miracle cure for a bad signal - these can only help a normal to good signal.

About £10 for two, not too excessive, but I think they (TP-Link) should do us all a favour and supply these with the router as standard !

If your signal is OK to begin with, just plug these in and that`s that....worth the cost if you rely on wifi.

I have just built myself a nice pfSense firewall router and found the antenna on the Dlink card to be ok but gave me signal issues around the house. I bought 4 of these, 3 for the router and one for my USB card for the laptop and they do exactly what it says on the box. Signal in all rooms in the house is much better and I dont have issues with the signal dropping out any more.

Only issue I do have is the antennas are not only much longer but also thicker. this means that you can not fit all 3 to a dlink card as the connectors are to close together (other cards may be ok) however this was easy to fix with a small SMA-RP pigtail lead.

If your router/AP or desktop wireless card/camera has reverse-SMA connectors - generally "a connector" with external antenna - chances are these antennas will work and provide better performance than what you get with your product. They are much longer and thus provide better signal.

I have bought 5 of these, 3 for an AP and 2 for another router. In both cases it has made a difference to justify the small cost. These antennas are great to replace the antennas included with most routers and provide better coverage throughout and higher signal ratio but might not provide enough gain for a specific application.

If you need to pick up a specific signal, directional antennas will be better so it depends what you need them for.

TP-Link TL-ANT2408CL 2.4GHz 8dbi Indoor Omni-Directional Antenna

I never write reviews, but felt that I ought to share my experience of this product with anyone considering them as a purchase.

I have just bought 2 of these as a replacement for a broken antenna for my Realtek RTL8190 wireless adapter for my Acer M3910 desktop. Using the Virgin Superhub in dual band mode will allow transmission rates of upto 300Mb, but due to the adapter being quite rubbish, the maximum I ever could receive through an internal wall would be 150Mb. In reality, I would typically receive 70 to 120Mb. The signal fluctuated and dropped out at regular intervals, occasionally it would drop altogether. I knew it was the adapter as my sons laptop and even a tablet would receive constant signals when my desktop would lose its signal.

To cut a long story short, I've fitted these and my signal is now pretty much at a constant 150Mb. I have also tested it using InSSIDer, a very useful free wireless Band checker, and my signal is a good 3Db better than it was before I fitted the TP-Links. When the signal does occasionally drop I know it's down to the router or ISP rather than my adapter.

I have also found streaming video wirelessly from my PC to a PS3 connected to my router to now be stutter free, which is another bonus.

So if you're having similar problems, dropping connection and changing signal quality, these just might be the ticket, and for the price they're a bargain upgrade.

Just a point to note, as others have mentioned they're quite long (about a foot) and thick (half an inch or so), but as long as you have room to fit them I'd recommend them highly.
