Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Needed Boost 30 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal upgrade for a Firewall Router 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked for me.. 17 Feb 2012
By Simba
Verified Purchase
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..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overall performance 6 Feb 2011
By CAS
Verified Purchase
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.

Verified Purchase
This enhances the signal over my old aerial by about 1.5x, wich is much better. Worth the money, I would buy another one if I needed to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth getting 6 Sep 2012
By Lucky
Verified Purchase
I didn't see any real improvement using these bigger aerials.

But I can recommend getting the Netgear N300 Wi-Fi card this is excellent, full bar range & you can move the aerial anywhere to receive a perfect signal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Connected 24 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this as I was losing the signl on my Denon Ceol RCD 7. This aerial is about 4 times longer and very well made.

It connected quite easily at the back of the the Denon and after resetting it picked up my wireless router and stayed with the signal.

Very pleased with it so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big, black and they work. 13 July 2012
By Nickrs
Verified Purchase
These antennas are big and black but they do work well. A very cheap way of enhancing and stabilising your wifi network if you need to extend the range of your LAN. They work very well with TP-Link's range extender products TP-Link TL-WA730RE 150MBPS Wireless Lite N Range Extender, Atheros, 1T1R, 2.4GHz or TP-Link TL-WA730RE 150MBPS Wireless Lite N Range Extender, Atheros, 1T1R, 2.4GHz.
