WiFi antennas help increase the range and strength of your WiFi signal. Below you'll find useful tips on buying an external antenna, including omni-directional and directional models.
While newer 802.11n WiFi routers are increasingly shipped with internal antennas, we have a range of external omni-directional antennas, intended either as direct replacements for your existing router / access point, or to provide extended point-to multi-point coverage in business environments for wireless 802.11b,g or n devices.
Available, for both indoor and outdoor usage, our antenna solutions from TP Link, Netgear, Cisco and Draytek provide office & business WLAN environments with superior coverage, better reliability and higher data rates, even for demanding building-to-building deployments. Compatible with many wireless devices (access points, routers, bridges and wireless network Adapters) removable external antennas offer straight forward installation, as well as weather proof designs if used outside.
Omni-directional antennas extend the range of wireless network coverage in any direction. However, although this type of antenna design can deliver network access over long distances, a drawback can be poor coverage directly below the antenna.
Alternatively, directional antennas allow RF signals to be pushed in a particular direction for farther distances, even though the effective beamwidth is decreased. This makes them ideal for hallways and long corridors, but not wider coverage areas (meaning an omni-directiona antenna should be chosen).
For home or SMB users, other options include devices that act as repeaters or wireless extenders (with repeaters widening an existing wireless network using the set-up encryption and SSID; while extenders use a different SSID, requiring their own separate login).
