ALFA ARS-NT5 is a 5 dBi omni-directional dual band Wi-Fi antenna for use with 802.11ac and 802.11n/g/b networks. It can receive and transmit on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands. This is the OEM replacement for AWUS051NH. But this can be used with any brand Wi-Fi adapter or wireless router that uses RP-SMA antenna ports. It can be used with dual band routers and adapters, or single band. It is compatible with all Wi-Fi standards including 802.11a, b, g, n and the newest standard 802.11ac.
How is this different from ARS-NT5B?
This is the thinner style OEM replacement for AWUS051NH. ARS-NT5B is a thicker style and is the OEM antenna with AWUS036ACH/AWUS052NH adapters. Both have the same performance and connector, it is just a different style.
**While most Wi-Fi adapters with external antenna ports have RP-SMA connectors, some routers use RP-TNC connectors, so be sure to check what connector type your device has before buying, or email our team with your brand/model router or adapter and we can confirm compatibility for you.
This is a low cost way to replace a missing Wi-Fi antenna, or upgrade from a lower gain antenna. It is also a great option for those in the market for a dual band antenna.
