The hotspot I was accessing is two houses down from me, maybe 50 feet. The wifi was slow inside, and I couldn't stream Netflix or have more than one tab open.
I plugged in the antenna, and expected my signal to increase with it sitting on the desk next to my laptop, since the laptop could already get the signal with the built in wifi adapter. It couldn't even load a single page. So, I'm thinking the range is actually less than my built in.
But, upon running the 25 foot cord out my window and placing the antenna up high and at its full extent with a good line of sight, I was able to get excellent wifi inside.
Thing is, I believe that if I were to sit outside with my laptop positioned in that exact spot, I would have excellent wifi. I do not believe, if the nearest hotspot was 100 feet, or half a mile, away, that I would be able to catch it with this antenna. I do not think the antenna itself is any better than my built in adapter, I think what you are really purchasing is the 25 foot usb cord and the ability to place the adapter strategically to increase your signal.
In my case, it works and has allowed me to access the internet inside my travel trailer. In the event that I were to move, this antenna could end up useless and I could end up staying somewhere relatively close to a wifi hotspot and still be without internet because it's 100 feet away and not 50 like it is here.
It also has this horrible habit of randomly disconnecting from the computer, especially when it rains. Sometimes I have to reset it a dozen times an hour, and sometimes it works flawlessly for days. Overall I am pretty disappointed, but there doesn't seem to be an alternative.
I like the unit so much, I bought one for my in-laws who travel to Mesa to stay in a "Snow Bird" park for the winter. There is free WiFi at the park office but is it far from their unit. I hook them up with this antenna and the were shocked and excited about how strong the signal was and how fast Internet pages loaded. Score!
