1.0 out of 5 stars This isn't really up to the job. No improvement whatsoever., 22 Oct 2013
This review is from: High Gain 16dBi 2.4GHz Wifi Yagi Antenna RP-SMA (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The cable on this is far too long, and it's also 75ohms (which is the wrong type) creating an impedance mismatch sapping at least 1/2 your power.

Don't bother unless your prepared to solder on a new cable.

The elements also could have been aligned much better by a blind bulgarian bricklayer. Not exactly mathmatically precise which a yagi ultimately requires for satisfactory performance, and you end up with something worse than an omni-directional with the unbalanced elements and wrong cable combining to give you next to nothing in gain, or in fact instead, reflecting 1/2 the power back into your radio killing it in due course.

On the whole, the price is rock bottom cheap, which reflects what you are going to be getting in performance really.

A big fat red balloon with no skin on it. Cheap and nasty. No more to say...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good antenna, 18 July 2013

This review is from: High Gain 16dBi 2.4GHz Wifi Yagi Antenna RP-SMA (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I have use this with ALFA cards and a WiFi Pineapple and it doesn't work at all. A 9dbi 'rubber duck' on a magnetic base is a test leaves it completely for dead. I would not recommend the product at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing performance, 14 July 2013

This review is from: High Gain 16dBi 2.4GHz Wifi Yagi Antenna RP-SMA (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this to use at our holiday home so we can get a stronger WiFi signal from a local WiFi hotspot.

I was previously using a +9.5dBi gain omni directional antenna - this was supposed to be +16dBi. When I rigged it up on the antenna mast, it was directional - ie you could only see WiFi networks in the direction it was pointed - but the signal strength was a lot less than the omni directional antenna. Spent a lot of time experimenting with orientation and placement but could never get a better signal than the omni directional. Gave up after a lot of messing around!
