This WiFi antenna has been quite helpful for us since it arrived.
Not only does it give access to our own Wifi, but we can also access wifi from the local StarBucks (free wifi) – especially useful if we are downloading music or whatnot. We are fortunate that our plan has a large data base, but having the ability to use more Wifi from another source is definitely beneficial.
It is not the prettiest of designs, but definitely serves its purpose. We have not lost connection, and it seems quite durable.
I love that it is USB powered and just plugs right into our computer. The USB cord is also quite long, therefore installs quickly and easily to any computer. It is nice and thick – showing quality (and waterproofness).
It is also easily installed with a cute little software CD (I am sure you can also find the software online if you need to reinstall on a different computer in the future).
We just have the antenna on its stand so we can make it mobile and useful for a few computers in our home.
The unit is also good for use inside or out – we have used it on our laptop and desktop without any issues.
The downloading speed is quite quick – not as quick as our normal Wifi, but does the job.
So, for anyone who does not have a great data plan and cannot access WiFi easily, this is definitely a great invention!
