Style Name: RP-SMA ConnectorSize: 9dBi Verified Purchase
I needed to extend the range of a Uniden 755 camera system. I needed to get thru 3 walls to the receiver and the attenuation made the included antenna useless. I installed this one and have the expected signal levels now along with a higher frame rate and no drop outs. I am only using it indoors, mounted flat to a wood wall which happened to be the exact orientation/direction I needed.

I will try to post a picture...

Great antenna. I have a stable 23mbps WiFi link using this antenna and a outdoor wrt54g-tm with ddwrt mega. Link is 3000 feet through trees. Only using the tl-ant2424b on the receiving end with wrt54g-tm setup as client bridged. Ap is 3000ft away and is a wrt54gl (all stock). Im using a cheap poe adapter from ebay. Outdoor box is from lowes. Ethernet plug on the box is a waterproof ethernet panel mount from ebay. Every pigtail for antenna and ethernet plug has orings to make it water tight. Wrt54g-tm has heat sinks added. Also works great for faster data rates with a wrt610n with ddwrt, as long as the AP is a new router. In my case the AP is a wireless g router, so I went with a wrt54g-tm in client bridge.

Word of advice... for good long term results, use dielectric grease on ethernet plug, and all antenna cable ends. Had a ethernet plug get rusted, also had water in antenna cable ends. Cleaned them and put on a new rj45 end and added dielectric grease to all and no more issues!

I've run a small ISP before so this isn't my first experience with TP-Link and they all work great. This product is no exception. I'm using this as the antenna on one side of a wireless bridge within my home. It replaced a omnidirectional antenna that was also rated at 9dbi. The signal runs through like four walls across the length of my house and improved about 10dB. Also I noted that when I scanned for access points I was now only picking up 10% of the amount with the omni antenna. This is good as it indicates less susceptibility to security risks as the signal is now directional.

Overall: TP-Link provides a great value when it comes to networking gear and I've got a lot of it(five routers, four switches, many antennas(parabolic 24dBi, omni 15dBi,etc). This is the perfect antenna to improve your home network especially if your router is on one end of your home. It offers a 60 degree angle of signal projection which is perfect for strong signal strength over short distances or when bridging point to multi-point over mid range(less than a mile). If you are creating a point to point bridge past 100 feet I'd recommend something that focuses the signal more such as the 14 or 24 dBi antennas.

Got this antenna together with Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW Wireless WiFi radio. The antenna was easy to put together and took about 15 minutes. The antenna is excellent when used in a loosely directional way when trying to link to an AP a mile or more. I was able to connect at 2.4 Mghz at about 2-3 miles to an AP on top of a mountain at 11Mbs. If you are looking for wardriving type antenna a more compact Yagi type WiFi antenna is probably a better bet, however for stationary links this one is a great addition to your WiFi equipment. At 40-50 bucks it was a good deal.

Style Name: N-Type ConnectorSize: 24dBi Verified Purchase
So, this is the first time I ever dealt with anything like this and all I wanted to do was improve my modem's wifi for my home. I found out that my nearest tower was 4 miles away so I decided to go with this antenna instead of another omnidirectional antenna seeing how it can do 24dbi I was sure it would raise the modems CINR & RSSI. What I was getting from the built in modem was weak - 70 RSSI & 18 CINR so during peak hours my internet speed would drop to a meg or two and sometimes I felt like I was on an old 56k modem. Watching youtube video's was sad and gaming was impossible so I gave it a shot and this is how it went:

CINR is steady at 36
RSSI is steady at 46

Both are without perfect positioning to the tower 4 miles away but just general directioning, The signal is always stable even in our windy area of the high plains of Texas even though I do see a little wobbling of the antenna.

Overall this helped solve my issues with slow internet that was jittery and would not give me a stable connection. Having this enables me to beat cellphones and other modems to and from the tower so 5 stars all across for performance, stability, and construction.

As others have mentioned, this antenna does not come with directions to assemble or install. They are readily available on the TP-Link website though.

The antenna seems well enough made. In my case, I used it to improve the connection to our local WISP. At 11.5 miles to the AP, the antenna performs admirably. My signal to noise ratio improved about 10 db over the Arc Wireless 19db panel I already had. Of that, about 6 db came on the gain side, and about 4 db came from reduced noise as the narrower beam width of this antenna shields out additional interference over the Arc Panel.

I should note, polarity is Vertical when installed as shown in the pictures at Amazon. This is the correct position to connect to most consumer products. However, if you use these to connect to some hot spots or WISPs, you may need to turn the antenna 90 degrees to use Horizontal polarity. There is a 20 db difference between polarities so if you have it wrong for your situation, you will be down 20 db of the 24 already. If you use two of these to establish a long link, then using horizontal polarity has the added benefit of quieting all the Vertical polarity consumer "noise" by an additional 20 db.

Bottom Line: This is a great product, and you can't buy better for the price.
