Hide your desktop computer underneath your desk and maintain wireless performance by placing the ANT24-0230 on top of your desk or mounting onto a wall.

+ Nice diagram of signal envelope for each antenna included
- Aluminum mount is UGLY. Too ugly to mount on my wall without a beating from my wife.
- The cort is SHORT - just under 4' long. If you were hoping to ceiling mount your antenna or move it, you can't.
This is going back into its box and on a shelf. At least it was relatively cheap. I really, really wish they could have made the cable a more useful length (e.g. 10-15 feet), and that I could have found the cable length on the D-Link website.
I installed a D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme N PCI Express Desktop Adapter and was showing three bars in the connection status and a RSSI (Received signal strength indication) of 68 with inSSIDer. I also have a D-Link DIR-655 Extreme-N Gigabit Wireless Router.
I purchased the ANT24-0230 and decided to use it on the wireless adapter, rather than trying to extend the range of the router. After reading the review I knew that my results might not be all that spectacular, but was thinking any improvement was better than none.
I did get an improvement, but I wouldn't call it spectacular. The three bars jumped to four and the RSSI dropped to 58. An improvement for sure and not one that I am unhappy with, but I'm glad that I chose to buy it used and at a lower price than the listed retail.
By way of comparison; I have a High-Gain USB Wireless N 300Mbps 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Network Adaptor With 2 High Gain 5dBi Dipole Antenna - Improving 6X Signal Reception and 3x Speed on a XP desktop, which resides on the second floor. When the router was in the basement, I was getting five bars and a RSSI of 28. With the router on the first floor, the RSSI dropped to 18.
It turned out that this wasn't far enough for my needs, so I ended up having to put my computer case on the desk and mounted the antenna to the wall (nice provided brackets for different mount situations - quick picture hang style or more permanent screw-mount). I ended up placing a couple different mount points depending on which network I wanted to connect to.
Maybe I'm just not used to the three antenna system yet, but I find it a real pain adjusting it for optimal signal. A program like inSSIDer is essential (or any program that provides actual -dB levels as opposed to the stupid 4-bar system). It's not quite as directional as I hoped it would be, but it does meet my purchase expectations.
I plan on cracking it soon and doing some modding. The wire doesn't seem to have as much shielding as I hoped, but as I haven't stripped it yet and can't say for sure.
Way too expensive for the relatively cheap parts, but choices are limited. This is the best choice for someone needing an extra few feet to get their 3-antenna wireless adapter out of a dead zone.
The first PC is in another room 29 feet from the router. There is one wall (wood frame/drywall) between the PC and the router. The D-Link ANT24-0230 antenna boosted the original signal strength of 3 bars (good) to a solid 5 bars (excellent). The antenna sits on top of the computer desk. I had to play around with the position of the three antennas to get a consistent 5 bar signal strength.
The second PC is in another room 51 feet from the router. There are four walls (wood frame/drywall) between the PC and the router. The D-Link ANT24-0230 antenna boosted the original signal strength of 2 and an occasional 3 bars (low to good) to a solid 4 bars (very good). The antenna sits on top of the computer desk monitor stand. I had to play around with the position of the three antennas to get a consistent 4 bar signal strength.
