I will try to post a picture...
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!
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.
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.
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.
