ALFA Network APA05-5Ghz 1000mW Indoor Pen Booster for WiFi Router/AP


The APA05-5GHz Wi-Fi Signal Booster is a highly efficient and compact unit designed to increase the performance and range of any 5 GHz wireless transmitter with an RP-SMA antenna connector. Note this model is only for 5 Ghz. If you need for 2.4 Ghz, check our model AOA05.

In our photos we show the device being connected to a WiFi router. The WiFi router is not included and is shown for demonstration only.

This is different from our ALFA USB WiFi boosters which also serve as WiFi receivers. This is not a receiver and cannot pickup WiFi signals on its own. It is an AC-powered pen booster designed to be connected to the RP-SMA antenna port of a 5 GHz transmitter (AP or router), and the antenna for the AP or router is then connected to it.

The APA05-5GHz extends signal range, and in certain conditions, can double the range of these wireless devices. This eliminates the use of an additional radio with its associated data line, power outlet, signal interference, and setup headaches. The APA05-5Ghz is the fast and easy way to extend your 5 GHz signal range in any environment.

The max input of this device is 100mW, so it should not be used in conjunction with a WiFi router already transmitting over 100mW.
