Rated 1 out of 5 better reception without
i bought this in hope of extending my wifi 500ft. this antenna was rated to extend range to 1.2 miles it doesn't even do less than a block away. I have a DIR655 router which isn't a bad router to begin with. I tried sticking it out the window, directing it towards the area I need wifi, etc. nothing works. even when i am in the garage, I still have 4/5 bars. I get the 5/5 bars without this antenna.

Exceeded my expectations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bouldergramp Very nice antenna for the price
This antenna worked much better than my "cantenna" but wouldn't reach my local library WiFi, which is about a mile away, as I hoped it would. Also, my home has double pane low-E glass windows and they apparently reduce the signal strength because signal levels were higher when "looking" through the nylon window screens.
I returned it to Walmart because of there generous return policy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DRCJ5 This ROCKS!!!
Started with the repeater not knowing the distance. Ended up using the high output antennas and WOW 1500 feet like nothing. Thumbs up for HAWKING product and thanks WALMART, for the great price!
