Customer Reviews of TECH 9db 2.4 GHz Wireless Range WiFi Extender Antenna for NETGEAR Linksys D-Link TRENDnet ASUS TP-LINK Router - Black
This antenna performs about the same as the ones on the router, but it offers the advantage of not having to leave the router on a windowsill to broil in the blazing afternoon sun.

My router is upstairs on the second floor with the main computer and my second machine is in the lower level with the wireless antenna against a concrete wall. I put up an aluminum reflector to get more RF to the antenna but reception remained poor. It was exaggerated when my provider went to 60 Mbps. My computer tech put in a three antenna router and an upstairs reflector but reception remained poor. I had looked for some for a solution when Rakuten sent me an email flyer with this antenna featured. It looked like an idea that might work. I attached it and put the antenna on top of the sill plate. Instantly I went from "poor" to "good" with four bars out of five. I may play with a Kim Komando "cantenna" reflector to see if I can get five but there's a lot of house between the antennas. My neighbor has the same problem and he's ordered one after seeing mine.
Decided to replace antenna that is on my Mini Tower. Seems like this antenna has the same reception as the small one that came on the tower. I can however move it about to try and get better reception which is a plus.
