Panel WiFi Antenna - 2.4GHz/5GHz-5.8GHz Range - 13dBi - Dual Band/Multi Band Outdoor Directional
This directional antenna is designed for point to point directional wireless applications. It is used to bridge networks between two points or objects that are far apart. Panel antennas are used to radiate into the forward space, placed high on the wall, or outdoor on the mast pole.
This antenna is designed for use on stationary objects such as buildings or houses but it’s widely used at campgrounds and marinas mounted at the RV motorhome, boat or remote camp spot.
It provides the most focused and narrow beamwidth and its ability to focus its 13dBi signal in one direction leading to the greater gain figures.
To maximize the benefits of this antenna type, it should be facing the source or destination direction of the signal from another antenna or device.
Directional antennas may not receive signals from multiple transmitter locations. The main purpose of these antennas is to reach places that an omnidirectional (multi-point 360°) antenna would not be able to reach.
The distance which this antenna can reach may vary based on obstacles and objects on the antenna path to the remote signal source like walls, trees, and other objects.
Dual Band - Covers 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency range
In wireless networking, dual-band equipment is capable of transmitting in either of two different standard frequency ranges. The primary differences between the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz wireless frequencies are range and bandwidth.
5GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance. 2.4GHz offers coverage for farther distances but may perform at slower speeds. Modern Wi-Fi networks feature dual-band broadband devices that support both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels.
This unique dual-band directional antenna covers the multi-range 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum and eliminates the need to purchase different antennas for each frequency range.
To be able to use both WiFi network ranges, be sure that your device supports both of those bandwidths.
Use proper extension cable or adapter to connect antenna to device (not included)
Antenna collects the signal and sends it through the cable to an amplifier or other networking devices. To connect the antenna to the device (router, WiFi card, access point, computer), the device needs to have a proper antenna connector.
The antenna has N-Female connector and it is ready to connect to devices with N-Male type of connectors. To choose proper extension cable from the antenna to the device you will need to know wifi antenna connector type on the device you want to connect the antenna to.
For that purpose, cable needs to have an N-Male connector on the one side and connector type which is compatible with your device on the other side of the cable.
Use the cable which fits in the distance from the device to the antenna, and avoid using the cable that is too long.
As a rule of thumb, you always want to go with the shortest cable length and thickest cable type possible. This is a static antenna without active components and it can not be connected to the USB port directly as a USB WiFi adapter. Your device needs to have a detachable antenna in order to be replaced with a stronger antenna.
DON’T: Use RG59/RG6 coax (75 Ohm TV cable from the hardware store) – signal will be seriously degraded • Focus on signal “strength” (RSSI or bars); optimize signal “quality” (SINR, RSRQ) instead;
