APA-L2458M912 is a 12 dBi 2.4/5 GHz dual band directional outdoor panel antenna with 2x N-female connectors. It is a great way to boost your WiFi signal over a long distance when using with a compatible dual band wireless receiver like ALFA AWUS036ACH.
It includes 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, but will not pick up as many signals in total as an omni-directional antenna.
We do recommend RokTape to seal all outdoor connection points.

As soon as I received this Alfa 12 dBi dual band antenna, I tested it. I connected it to an Alfa ACHM dual band adapter, and WOW! It picked up many AP's in the area and at decent strength. It picked up Lowe's Guest Wifi signal (1/3 of a mile from me) on the 5 GHz band and I got good Internet and decent download speed. I'm using an old Dell Latitude D820 laptop (2006 model) which has an internal a/b/g wifi chip, which means it's dual band; (the "a" type signal runs on 5 GHz while the "b" and "g" run on 2.4 GHz). Dual band "ac" external wifi adapters and antennas can be used in old computers whose internal wifi chips have the "a" type along with the others, such as a/b/g; a/b/g/n; a/g/n. They will not work in computers whose internal wifi chips are b/g or g/n or b/g/n only, since the motherboards in those computers are compatible with 2.4 GHz only.
