The ALFA APA-L2419 19 dBi 2.4 GHz directional outdoor panel antenna with N-female connector is a great way to boost your WiFi signal over a long distance. This sale comes with the antenna and mounting bracket, brand new in box from ALFA Network. A directional antenna concentrates its gain all in the direction it is aimed. It will do a better job piercing obstacles and interference in that direction, and will also cut out noise coming from other directions as well. It will not pick up as many signals in total as an omni-directional antenna.
We do recommend RokTape to seal all outdoor connection points.

Being an Alfa product, I expected their 19 dBi outdoor panel antenna to work well, but it's better than I expected. I aimed it at Lowe's hardware store which is about 1/3 of a mile from me and it picked up Lowe's Guest Wifi signal at a steady 76% strength, and that's with a 16 foot wifi extension cable connected to it. Excellent product.
Very pleased w/ my purchase of the Alfa Panel & Parabolic Grid Antenna's.
Have used them both and both seem to working fine.
as of this write the unit is mounted on top of a drum set cymbal stand extended up to about 4.5 feet inside my room. im located on the second floor of an apartment complex with the antenna aimed directly out the window at the walmart wifi access repeater across 100 feet of parking lot. im getting solid connections with this antenna inside going thru the my window. can't wait to get it mounted outside on the roof so she can stretch her legs".
